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...

  • Thursday, 31st July
    my iPad Pencil arrived in the post, and I made a sketch of baby. We also went to view a house in Woodstock.
  • Wednesday, 30th July
    we went to the bank in Witney and had lunch at Cafe Nero. Baby slept through most of it. At home I introduced baby to the metronome, he seemed to like it.
  • Tuesday, 29th July
    we took baby for a walk to visit our alpaca neighbours and he didn't fall asleep this time.
  • Monday, 28th July
    we tried giving baby some expressed breast milk but he refused to drink from the bottle and quite upset. Uh oh.
  • Sunday, 27th July
    Peter had a bath with baby, and I had a nap with baby afterwards, skin to skin.
