My little cousin got my best friend’s book for Christmas. And I told everyone that he wrote it. And then she read some to me.

Getting home. Hello flat. Hello London. Hello peace and quiet.

Texting Alex.

I can use the funding for Vagina stuff! Hurrah!

The Winter Crafts Wellbeing Hour. Lots of people came along and they really liked it!

An evening with Jonny. Eating dinner together. Watching shit TV. Eating too much.

Beautiful wooden things and coffee with Bivan.

Christmas decorations with Jonny. Yes, in November.

Our pub and then Bridget Jones with too many cheesy balls.

Oh and Nat sending me a recording of him playing a Christmas song on the tuba. That actually really made me smile for a long time.

A day with Jonny – Assassin’s Creed, organic shopping and sewing

New table

Cooking new things

These words about me, from a best friend.

Wearing my skinny jeans and boots and listening to music and waking with confidence, feeling like a fabulous woman.

Dusting my room and feeling homely and tidy again.

Basically a whole day with Jonny and it was lovely:

Shopping together.

Changing his pennies into pounds at Metro Bank.

A pub night, trying a new pub and then going to an actual nice pub.

Delicious carrot cake from Libby’s mum. Two slices.

Andrew: Well done to Libby for finding the pen after Adam lost it.

Sitting on a bench in the sun at the top of the park, reading.

And Han is here! I forgot how fun I feel with her.

Playing with Mrs Edwards

Getting home

Food shopping with Jonny

Worked from home. So obviously I watched Netflix, booked hotels in Japan, did some vagina work, baked cakes and did some washing.

Jo came over and it was nice to have some company and eat dinner with someone and chat about stuff.

New toothbrush head and mouthwash. Mouth feels fresh.

Picking the right seat, facing towards the fun team. Meaning I got to join in conversations with Matt and Keith and get a toffee crisp out of the deal.

Cheese and onion pasty. First day of my period calls for hot cheese and carbs.

Night of lolz with Jonny. Pizza, mice, TV.

Getting an appointment so quickly. It feels a bit like it was meant to be.

Lying on my bed after work reading, with the sun shining through the tree and onto my bed.

Just having Jonny around. Listening, making me laugh, talking. I’m glad he’s here.

Playing the animal noises game with Libby after Andrew left.

A night with Jo. Petek and chats. Lots of good chats. About sex and babies and the future and housemates. It was exactly what I needed.

Having a shower before bed. Washing off all the suntan lotion and sweat and having clean feet and soft skin in bed, with nothing else on.

Japan flights are booked!

A couple of posters for the competition. Thank god.

New pub with Jonny. I’m glad we go out still. And play dominoes

My period started

Jonny’s response to my period starting

Hunt for the Wilderpeople

A great dog.

Walking through the park in the evening.

The pub with Jonny. Talking about new house stuff.

Putting a deposit down on a flat. A nice flat!

An evening with Jonny, planning the new house.

Stuart telling me he misses me.

A free, proper iced tea at a fun meeting.

I bought a mooncup. This is it. It’s going to happen.

Being in the pub with Jonny. I’ve missed him.

I’ve been invited to pitch for a £5k grant!

Writing up BOW stuff and calming myself down after a frenzied afternoon.

Half a pub quiz with Jonny in the quiet pub.

Being out and about rather than in the office. Especially when it stopped raining.

New insoles. It’s like walking on jelly! It’s so comfy.

Petek with Jonny. Free dessert again. They love us. And new flat chat.

Finally going into the fabric shop. It’s got some utterly beautiful material in. Can’t believe I haven’t been before.

Discovering a beautiful flat that we can afford. And we’re visiting it tomorrow!

Drinks with Jonny. Planning our new lives in the flat!


Working on BOW. Getting the manifesto done and feeling happy with doing something and shaking off the low mood. It’s nice to get compliments about your writing too.

A night with Jonny, eating at Rasa and talking about moving in together. Plus he gave me my birthday present. Hello perfect Muji mugs! 😍

Stuart phoning me during Matilda by Alt-j live in Madrid.


A wonderful letter and bad ass card from Han to cheer me up, telling me all the amazing things I’ve done and why she loves me. Plus some great photos of the fun times! She’s so lovely.

Finishing mum’s embroidered Christmas present. Now they both have a top with their boat logo on!

A night out for Stuart’s birthday. We went to Shep’s, ate delicious food, chatted to James, got free cocktails and shots and a discount too! Then some extremely drunk but very good sex when we eventually got home. From what I can remember anyway


Sticking it out and meeting Kieran to hear about the waste management work. Not what I want, but interesting. And a good chance to feel like I’m good at something.

Lino printing vagina Christmas cards.

A classic date night with Jonny. Too much alcohol, some penis chat and Peteks. Perfect. 


Walking around Soho with Jonny, planning what we’ll do and where we’ll live when we’re rich.

Wearing my new charity shop shirt.

Jonny saying he would move in with me. Yay, he’s not planning on leaving!


My amazing charity shop haul. I got some great clothes for hardly any money at all! New trousers for £2 and a lovely man’s woollen jumper for £2 too. Yes please.

An evening with my boo, Jonny. I haven’t seen him for ages. So we went to Petek. Obvs. 

Jen gossip and a Britney-esque photo. What a plum.

D
ay one of the Influencing Change course. It was so exciting to feel excited about it all again. And to distill my ideas down into something more focused.

Talking to Joy about the project. And all the other people that came up to me to talk about vaginas. It was a subject that so many people wanted to talk about. It was a real boost. 

Beers with Jonny, making me see the good in the day again. 


Yak and Yeti takeaway and RuPaul in bed.

All the foxes on the way home. One was like ‘yeah, and what’. So ballsy. 

Perving on hot men trying on great suits in M&S


Spending the day with Naomi, chatting about all things feminist, life and work.

The Rachael Whiteread exhibition at Tate Britain. And talking it through with Naomi as we walked round. I never do that.

A few hours with Jonny in the evening but not drinking. Then going to bed at 10.


Getting an apology and getting my TOIL.

Beers and pizza with Jonny.

An evening slightly drunk shower. Warm soft feet and sweet smelling skin in bed afterwards.
