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
    Peter's mum came to visit and it was lovely to see Owen having such a great time with her. Cheeky monkey.
  • Saturday, 28th November
    I had a terrible headache from my sinus. In the afternoon we took Owen to watch The Good Dinosaur. It was quite boring, but he sat through it. Good boy.
  • Friday, 27th November
    I drove to and from work, and wasn't too bad at it. Owen was very fussy in the evening, and throwing tantrums quite a bit.
  • Thursday, 26th November
    I worked from home and was still feeling miserable, and Owen was still very happy and had an insatiable appetite for stories (not very good for my sore throat).
  • Wednesday, 25th November
    I was too ill to work, and Owen was very happy all day, and excited to be back at the nursery after boring days at home with two sick parents.
