I'm working hard on it offline, and it will be uploaded soon. It's so empty and ugly at the moment because I accidentally deleted the entire codebase and database a year ago. It'll be shiny soon, I promise. x Victoria

in Today...

  • Wednesday, 22nd April
    baby was poorly with cold and fever, and kept crying no matter what. Peter had to take care of him while I worked, and he was ill himself too. It was chaos. In the evening baby was super happy again, babbling away, pleased that he had managed to escape nursery yet again.
  • Tuesday, 21st April
    we went to view the prospective house again, and made an offer for it! Baby seemed really excited about it too.
  • Monday, 20th April
    baby was throwing tantrums all day from wanting breast milk. We also took him to Toddler Sense, which he kind of liked. He also kissed a girl very gently on the lips while he was there.
  • Sunday, 19th April
    baby had a great time opening presents and playing with grandparents, aunt, uncle and baby cousin. It's so good to see him so happy.
  • Saturday, 18th April
    we took baby to the Cotswold Wildlife Park for his birthday weekend with his grandparents, aunt, uncle and baby cousin.
