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.

in Today...

  • Yesterday
    Owen was very happy to see me after work, and was very cute and cuddly. He even wanted me instead of Peter to read him his bedtime stories. After he went to bed we watched Great British Bakeoff final.
  • Tuesday, 25th October
    Owen refused to nap again though he was clearly tired from the soft play. Perhaps we have broken him by making him skip naps too often. I was especially irritable all day.
  • Monday, 24th October
    Owen woke up at 9:30am in the morning but did not nap in the afternoon. I was started knitting a new cabled jumper for Owen.
  • Sunday, 23rd October
    relatives visited us enroute back home from a wedding. Owen had a great time playing with his cousin and not napping.
  • Saturday, 22nd October
    we took Owen to the library in Witney to borrow books about volcanos.
