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
    a childhood friend found me on Facebook and brought back memories of those wild and idealistic days.
  • Wednesday, 29th July
    baby slept badly all night and woke up at 5:20am. Poor me. But he's very cute and been trying to stand up on his own quite well.
  • Tuesday, 28th July
    we went to the solicitor to get the papers signed for the new house, and baby slept through all of it.
  • Monday, 27th July
    Peter took care of baby all day as I had to go to Oxford for some errands. I spent 3.5hrs in total waiting for buses!
  • Sunday, 26th July
    it rained all day, and we stayed home all day. I was so sleepy, I napped twice.
