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

My sister gave me some sarong fabric for my birthday, and I've made a dress from it, following the pattern from the Japanese sewing book, Stylish Dress Book (vol 1), Dress E.

  • Yesterday
    I still feel horrible. And poor Owen got his foot caught under the door and had a nasty cut.
  • Monday, 23rd November
    we were both still horribly ill, and Owen seemed really happy.
  • Sunday, 22nd November
    Peter and I were both very ill, but Owen seems to have gotten better. I'd finally cured Owen of his computer addiction by hiding my laptop and reading him loads of stories when he pointed to the laptop table and threw a tantrum.
  • Saturday, 21st November
    it was very cold, and we were miserably cold when we went to the shops in town, and Owen was very fussy. Peter and I were also miserable and ill.
  • Friday, 20th November
    Owen was back to normal and I had a nice relaxing evening knitting, eating mince pies, and watching telly.
