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.


It’s not rocket séance.

A night with Jonny. Talking about something I’ve wanted to talk about for weeks and all the lols. I’ve missed him. He makes me laugh so much.

Going to a lesbian bar to end the night. On a Tuesday evening. And being checked out by a couple of hot women. Excellent Tuesday night!


Breakfast on my own at Blighty, reading in the corner and making slow day plans.

Tackling the weeds at the back of the garden. They all came out and I tried to save as many snails as I could. We have a lot of snails. 

Jonny came over. We walked to the beautiful park, played cards at the pub, had noodles and watched SatC. Then he rescued a gigantic moth from my room before bed. #besties


Jonny opening his present. He was genuinely so happy.

Jonny’s birthday, generally. But specifically:

Winning air hockey at Rowan’s.

Playing ping pong. With my secret smug look that was not so secret.

Ring of Fire until half 4. With card tricks.


Texts from Jonny. Being his drag mum. Wanting to be his soul sister. 

Breaking the surface at work in the afternoon and smiling and joking. It felt such a relief to feel almost normal again.

Meeting Jo after work for a hug and a fresh mint tea. It was nice to be out of my head and thinking about someone else for a while.


New series of Master of None.

Lauren making me laugh and making me feel less of a moany twat. 

Five minutes of texting Jonny. Five minutes of feeling loved and liked and funny. He’s my rock and my happy place. Some days I need him more than others. Today was one of those days. 


Even more sunflowers popping​ up.

Coffee in the sun with Jo. I needed hugs and sympathy after last night.

Walking around Gillespie Park. The bit I haven’t been to before. Flowers and bees and beautiful things. 🐝🌺🌼🌷🌻

Coming home to see that Jonny had left my room looking immaculate. Minimalist mates forever.

Getting the budget. Or a bit of it at least.

Facemasks and vulvas.


My period started. Well that sure explains a lot. 

An evening with Jonny. Beers and Korean food. And bitching. I love him. I love him so much.

I’n on holiday! And the air smelt like holiday! 


Impromptu easter egg hunt at work this morning.

Feeling back on track with Hannah

Yoga. For the first time in a long time. And feeling so blissed. There was a moment of just pure joy. Which was made even better because when I first arrived I was pissed that it was a yoga teacher I previously didn’t like. But it was a really great class. Must. Be. More. Open minded.
