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

  • Sunday, 21st September
    I was exhausted from tending to baby's blocked nose in the night.
  • Saturday, 20th September
    baby was loud and noisy at 7am laughing and shouting at birds while we were trying to sleep.
  • Friday, 19th September
    Peter went out in the morning, and I was left alone with baby, and this was surprisingly rare.
  • Thursday, 18th September
    we took baby to a musc class and had a lovely lunch with our NCT group friends.
  • Wednesday, 17th September
    we took baby to swimming class where he cried, but he didn't cry when we bathed him in the evening! Baby's new cousin was born, and he's not the youngest baby in the family anymore!
