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
    Owen refused to nap again, and we left him to scream and cry for 2.5hrs! Why is he so stubborn like me?
  • Sunday, 1st May
    Owen refused to nap again, and was grumpy and difficult all day, making Peter and I lose our temper several times. In the evening he refused to sleep too, and so we left him screaming in bed for hours. What was wrong with him??!
  • Saturday, 30th April
    we took Owen to Witney, and he was getting rather good on his scooter, enjoying it very much.
  • Friday, 29th April
    I cycled to and fro work, and pushed myself harder than usual, though I did eat cake. In the evening I played with my phone until very late.
  • Thursday, 28th April
    Owen was very happy again. I spent all evening trying to decide between 2 phones to no avail.
