“the sky is so stupid with blue”. Such a wonderful way of describing things.

Reading on the sofa, wrapped in my fleecy blanket from my parents, reading in the sun.

Doing some yoga. Finally doing some yoga. Stretching my body and feeling it need to move. It felt great.

My green tea matched my trousers.Feeling really quiet and calm at lunch. It felt like there was no wind, no noise, just peace. And my book and the sun.Strawberries, peanut butter and yoghurt.

Speaking to someone who also likes my book idea and wants to chat to some publishers for me.

Having a long chat with the gynaecologist. It felt great to be given that much time to talk and to understand.

Feeling a bit excited about the possibility that this new thing might be the answer.

Vietnamese with my cousin.

I’m really enjoying reading my book at the moment.

A lovely email from another woman who has felt so self-conscious about her labia but now feels a bit better thanks to my site and Insta.
