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

in Today...

  • Yesterday
    baby was back to being a good baby again, having fun with grandparents, napping, finishing his dinner, letting me wipe his nose, and brushing his own teeth. Might take him to see Father Christmas tomorrow then.
  • Saturday, 20th December
    baby woke up extra late, at 10:30am, and screwed up his schedule for the day, ending up going to bed at 5:30pm, skipping dinner and bath.
  • Friday, 19th December
    we were left alone at home when grandparents went out for dinner. We watched The Fall and Black Mirror on tele.
  • Thursday, 18th December
    baby was excited to wake up at grandparents' and had a great time playing with granny. He even started crawling!
  • Wednesday, 17th December
    we packed and rushed and arrived at Peter's parents' before baby's dinner time.
