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 slept badly again, making me extremely stressed and worn out, and I felt like I was about to explode.
  • Monday, 24th November
    baby napped for so long, we had to skip his Baby Sensory class.
  • Sunday, 23rd November
    baby's grandma and grandpa visited us, and he had a great time with them.
  • Saturday, 22nd November
    Peter did most of the housework so I could feel like I had a weekend, though I still had to wake at 7am with baby.
  • Friday, 21st November
    I worked hard to get baby to follow his nap schedule and fitting in his baby ballet class and it mostly went according to plan! In the evening, he even enjoyed his bath, and had his 3 teeth brushed for the first time, my super cute baby.
