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
    we went to Witney to do some shopping and for Owen to feed the ducks. In the evening I started an emergency knitting project for a gift.
  • Saturday, 23rd July
    we went to the Riverside Festival in Charlbury, and Owen had a great time playing in the river.
  • Friday, 22nd July
    I drove to work by myself again, and was definitely better this time. I made venison pie for dinner, and Owen ate loads and loads and loads until I stopped him. In the evening, we watched Spaced season 1 on DVD.
  • Thursday, 21st July
    was finally a little cooler. I worked from home and had nice cold sushi for lunch.
  • Wednesday, 20th July
    I drove to work by myself for the first time since passing. I was horrendous, but it wasn't a disaster.

Just watched
