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
    I woke up angry, and thinking I didn't want to be the kind of person who wakes up angry. Funny how just last year I had been so smug about being unfairly happy.
  • Monday, 1st September
    was an awful day, everyone was cross, even baby, and milk supply seems to have reduced by quite a lot.
  • Sunday, 31st August
    Ed and Caroline came to visit with baby William. In the evening baby was very cute and we bathed him, and read him bedtime story, and there was plenty of breastmilk.
  • Saturday, 30th August
    Uncle Pete and family dropped by to see baby, after they had gone I didn't do much but feed baby all day.
  • Friday, 29th August
    we took baby to have a look at the nursery he would be attending next year, and he was all smiley and cute.
