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

  • Yesterday
    baby was sent home early from the nursery as he was poorly and had a temperature. He cheered up immediately when home and played with his new toys. We think he faked his illness.
  • Thursday, 16th April
    was baby's birthday! He was poorly and had a bit of temperature. In the afternoon, we went to view a house which I loved and couldn't wait to buy!
  • Wednesday, 15th April
    poor baby had to go back to nursery again, and was very unhappy.
  • Tuesday, 14th April
    we went to see a mortgage adviser, and baby was in a really good mood in the afternoon and was very cute.
  • Monday, 13th April
    was unusually quiet at the baby group and lunch play date. We later found out he had a temperature. Poor baby.
