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...

  • Today
    we took baby to nursery again, and he cried again. But when he came home, he was super happy all afternoon.
  • Yesterday
    we stayed home and played with baby all day. I was exhausted and ill and went to bed early. Also had teething pain from my wisdom tooth, need to steal baby's Sophie!
  • Wednesday, 25th March
    baby went to the nursery again, and was happier than before. In the afternoon we went to Lizzy's for playdate, and he was a happy baby again. We also went to view another house. I really should learn to mentally unprocess wide angle lens illusion on properties photos.
  • Tuesday, 24th March
    baby kept us up all night, and worn me out again. In the evening Peter went out to an infant first aid course while I stayed home. Quite refreshing actually.
  • Monday, 23rd March
    baby was unhappy and clingy when we took him to Baby Sensory, and I was also feeling miserable and tired and coughing a lot.
