It’s my 30th birthday!

A cake with me and mum in vulva tshirts on, a commissioned vulva painting, a silver ring making kit, a machine embroidery workshop, the flask from Waitrose, a donkey sanctuary, creepy caves, a cream tea, Alec coming down, kareoke, games, big sparklers, a midnight walk to the drawbridge, two generous donations to Bloody Good Period in honour of me,w a drunken chat with Stuart and just all the fun birthday love and joy that I wanted!

The woman dressed up as a daffodil with her dog at Holborn, raising money for Marie Curie.

Leaving work when it was still light. Such a happy heart.

Going to the sauna. So sweaty.


Getting a Thank You letter and a tea bag from the Alzheimer’s Society for helping raising £109,000 by doing the Ben Nevis Midnight Challenge. 

Baking some gold glittery cakes for Ming’s Gold Party. Not quite as gold as I wanted but it was nice to bake again. 

Chatting to my friend’s at the party. I haven’t spoken to Al properly in a long time, Harry was really interesting and it’s always so nice to see Sam DJ so intently. 


Super strong, sticky bubbles!

The lovely man who came to our yard sale and bought things he didn’t need and then donated more money just because. So sweet.

Brunch with Sophie. I love Sophie hugs.

Starting the midnight climb up Ben Nevis. So exciting.
Reaching the half way point up the mountain.

Arranging for any leftover food at work to be donated to the women’s refuge down the road.
Someone took the coffee grinds I put outside of work for their compost heap. It’s working! Recycling and waste elimination is coming to the Deli.
An email from one of my best friends back home.

My mum organised a leg and bikini wax for me before I go away. Just what I needed.

Going to a funding night for a friend’s project. The atmosphere was great, loads of money was donated and I discovered three more amazing projects doing fantastic things. People are brilliant.

My boyfriend came home after a weekend away

New job. First day. Champagne and a party in the new office.

My new boss (and good friend) is going to give money to the orphanage I worked at in Ghana to make sure Richard has a carer every month. So amazing. And completely blown away.

Kim complaining that thin chips were worse than chunky chips because they’re more work. To much lifting involved.

A slightly guilty trip into the charity shops on my lunch break. But £6 on a work top and a lovely salt shaker isn’t going to set the savings back too much

Going to see Hemingway’s Fiesta (the sun also rises). A brilliant, brilliant play at Trafalgar Studios.
