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
    baby woke me up every 2 hours in the night, and also I was too excited about house hunting to sleep, so I was exhausted all day.
  • Thursday, 26th February
    I admitted that my sweet little baby has become a demanding shouty toddler. I've also got him some colouring pencils, and was a bit disappointed that he couldn't draw yet.
  • Wednesday, 25th February
    I was so sleepy I didn't get baby when he woke up in the morning until 50mins later (he played in bed), and didn't take him to messy play.
  • Tuesday, 24th February
    we went to Zenah's house for our weekly NCT lunch. In the evening I hunted for houses online until very late.
  • Monday, 23rd February
    we left Peter's parents to go home just when baby was having such a great time with them.
