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
    I wore my pyjamas all day.
  • Thursday, 23rd October
    I stayed in to nurse the hyper overtired baby who just wouldn't nap.
  • Wednesday, 22nd October
    baby was overtired and cried so much at swimming class that we had to end early and take him home. I slept in guest room so baby and Peter can have a good night's sleep undisturbed by my cough.
  • Tuesday, 21st October
    baby got overtired and turned into an evil gremlin, squealing drunkenly, pinching, and biting.
  • Monday, 20th October
    baby woke at 6am and refused to nap, and was hyper happy all day, high from tiredness. When he finally slept, I finsished reading Elizabeth Pantley's The No-Cry Sleep Solution.
