Kamikochi

Japanese badger

Monkeys. Lots of monkeys. And two of had sex right in front of us.

A walk through the forest and alongside the river.

Laughing at Han tripping up

Managing to swap buses effortlessly. Everything is so damn easy here!

Getting excited about the book with Liv.

Telling her the fox story and seeing her laugh.

Going for a little walk at lunchtime and spotting the squirrel on the tree, looking at me. (Not this squirrel but this is also very joyful).

Watching two foxes play fight and hang out near my house. They seemed so unbothered. And much bigger than normal city foxes.

Being more me and funny in the meeting with all the boring men.

New book idea stuff. Talking to Liv and getting the blessing from Naomi.

We won the free breakfast for the waking challenge!

Getting excited about Car Free Day. I feel good about these plans.

Playing guess the animal with Stuart. And then the Austrian national anthem.

A day at the zoo! Giraffes and play fighting bears and elephants and a safari with a scary camel and hungry chimps.

Driving around with the top down in the mini convertible. So twatty but also fun.

Resealable cans of water. Genius.


The bubbles from the washing up bottle.

Doing some gardening in the warm morning. 

Grants Museum of Zoology. Lots of jars of dead things and bones. Not my usual bag but it was fun. Especially this little blown up fish fella.

(Not drinking at either of the two parties which made things a little better. Or at least not as terrible as I thought they would be)


The anti hen party chat from Jana and Hol. Glad to see we’re all on the same page!

Matt inviting me down to watch Africa.

And then actually watching Africa. I like watching Attenborough shows with Matt. We do good commentary.


A walk that took in the coast, a cliff and some of the South Downs Way. Ending in a cafe with a cream tea.

Lounging in the sun with Sophie.

Spotting wild rabbits, a fox and heaps of pigs. 


Funny animal photos.

Booked another pottery course. This time with Wiseman. Quickest £200 decision I’ve ever made.

A ridiculously drunk first date that we accidentally shared with an old American couple. I barely spoke to the date but what a fun evening! 


Vegan lunch plus iced coffee

Discovering new bits of Greenwich Park with Jonny. And perving at the topless men. The weather was just perfect today.

Accidentally finding Mudchute farm whilst exploring more green London. Goats, donkeys and lambs.

A frosty walk around the Devil’s Punchbowl with my family, jumping over fallen trees and scrambling up steep paths.

Den asking me questions. Listening to what I had to say. 

Planet Earth II. AGAIN. Birds riding birds. Field mice. Jumping birds.


Sunday baking.

Organising my birthday. Maybe I do like birthdays afterall. 

The cricket and the glass frog on Planet Earth II

Planet Earth II. The lizards on iguanas made me chuckle.

A quick trip to Bristol. 

Mark and Kate’s ridiculously beautiful bathroom


Fuck off Wheetabix. Today is a crumpets kinda morning. 

The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards.

Boxercise. And making exercise friends. 


Finding a feather in my egg box.

A beautiful walk in sunny West Sussex.

The influx on ducks at lunch.

Just some casual deer on my walk to work.
Remembering the ridiculousness of last night with him and how utterly self involved he is. I probably shouldn’t have laughed in his face but….so ridiculous!
Another puzzle! This time with a time lapse camera.

Kangaroos! In our campsite! And a whole heap of them hopped past including a tiny baby one. So exciting.
Swimming in the pool. It is so hot here now we’re not in the wind.
A podcast on bliss. The presenters were just having such a good time.

Lemonade fruit.
The zoo – did you know how big a pelican is?! Also the signs. And the close encounter with kangaroos. Anne the one day old baby chimp.
Messages from one of my oldest and best friends, Ed.

One of mums Sunday lunches. And it was the best one ever.

Playing Cludo with my boyfriend and dad. No winning.

Sleeping Naked Mole Rats on Africa.

A lazy morning in bed

The small squirrel that came so close to us in the park. It almost came right up to my hand. But he wasn’t quite brave enough.

The dance scene in Silver Linings Playbook.

A mid afternoon hot chocolate and girly catch up

Spotting a fox on top of a car in the car park. And then watching it leisurely stretch and wander off.

8 out of 10 cats.

Today was my birthday. And it was filled with lots and lots of things that made me smile. And as it’s my birthday I’m going to ignore the three things rule. Here are more than three things that made me smile today.

My signed Michael Palin books, with my name in and everything.

20121229-164418.jpg

The windy walk up the hill with my parents.

The lamas feeding in the field.

20121229-164411.jpg

The rainbow above the houses when we got home.

Getting a Skype kiss.

A delicious dinner with my family.

Drinks and laughter at the pub. Including one of my favourite friends who I don’t see enough.

All in all, a bloody good day!

Being complimented on my work by two separate people.

The smell of my freshly washed scarf.

The animal photos on the Telegraph site and their funny captions.

Going to a Life Drawing class for the first time in years.

My hair. It was down and big and curly and smelled lovely.
