Sharing my vagina pot news in the team meeting. Getting a high five.

Singing ‘The Greatest’ walking home. 

Feeling good in Serious Adult dress.


Fishy walls. Crusty curtains. Actual big lol in the street.

Shopping with Jonny.

Got me a new coat.

​All the new clothes through the post.

Funny conversations with the housemates about Torture Garden, piss water fights and Glass Bottom Boats.

Wearing my new vagina T-shirt to work. Loving that look.

New bra.

Making the house look pretty with flatmates. Organised the DVDs, did more gardening (well, hacking) and discovered an insane amount of old remotes.
Sitting in the sun, in our new chair, drinking coke from a glass bottle. It’s just like being on holiday.
A perfectly lined-up stripy top and a new way of hemming necklines.

Finally getting a lunch break and being able to go outside in the sun and be away from everyone and everything.
A warm evening, walking through Shoreditch.
Dressing up. It feels good to feel good.

An afternoon of sewing in the sun
Homemade ice tea
Accidental Indian dinner out. All the food.

The dream team. Me, Froggy and Rochelle setting up the hub. They make me laugh so much. Andy with his drill and Rochelle’s slippers. The place looks amazing, I’m so proud of myself.
Uniqlo date night with Jonny. It was SO. GOOD. That is the best Uniqlo ever and I spent £100 and I don’t even care.
Icco pizza. Oh god I could eat a hundred in one go. I wish it never ended.

Basically just such a great day. So positive. So buzzed. I’m actually doing this.

image

Steam cleaning. My first time. And so much to steam.
Spur of the moment trip into the charity shop by my house and I walked out with four new tops for £13.50. So happy.
Fancy afternoon tea (for dinner) with Al. So much sugar.

My Hiut jeans arrived, FINALLY! It’s been a few months of waiting but they are here and they fit and I feel good.
Feeling the blood and the energy rushing around my body at yoga.

Mixing friends
Swishing

‘To paint a picture of Fanny’
Coming out of my first shift at work and putting my headphones on to listen to Fuse ODG.
My outfit tonight. I felt good.

image

New bamboo t-shirts from Rapanui. And they came with a cute note, some sweets and packaged up in a biodegradable bag. Such a wonderful company.
The Great British Sewing Bee. I love this programme.
Playing on the Wii.

Being home. Seeing the countryside and beautiful villages. Smelling the fresh air and wood smoke. And feeling bizarrely Christmassy.
Seeing my dresses and clothes that I left behind. My wardrobe has just quadrupled in size.
Just being in my childhood house. So much stuff is the same. I move around the house in the same way. It’s really comforting.

We’re in Melbourne! Beautiful, sunny, cafe filled Melbourne.
Uniqlo.
The delicious salmon rice dish for lunch. So yummy.

image

Haircut. At a fraction of the usual price.
The Welsh landlord from the Welsh pub recognised me on the street and said hello. I’ve only been into the pub three times.
I bought even more fabric. Whoops. And then spent the afternoon sewing. I made another T-shirt and turned a big top into a vest.

image

A sunshine message from mum.
I made another T-shirt.
This video about the creepy things that men say. Kind of not funny but an entertaining video.

Geordies in the New Zealand national newspaper.
Morning messages across multiple timezones about S Club 7, Pat Sharp, a semi famous werewolf and sausages.
Wearing nice pants.

image

Getting to try my new coat (which is slightly waterproof) on a cold and rainy morning. Perfect timing, coat.
Big bits of brownie edges too nibble on at work.
A big group of people came into the deli for food and the three of us immediately started working perfectly together to get everything done. After a quiet, quite stressful morning it was good to all be on the same team again. Plus it was exciting to serve a big group.

image

My new jumper. It’s not itchy, it’s not saggy, it’s the perfect color and it only cost $8 from the charity shop.
Remembering something slightly embarrassing that I said when I was a bit drunk the other night. Woops!
Spending some time alone in our room doing a hair mask, having a hot shower whilst listening to music and then putting on warm comfy clothes and feeling clean and relaxed. Perfect for a dark, rainy evening.

image

Being told in my meditation class that a great way to feel happier is to smile.
Having a giggle with my boyfriend just being silly and talking about nothing important.
Wearing a beautiful white, smoothly ironed top. I don’t often iron things but when I do I remember how lovely it feels.

Buying a handmade floral dress from Newtown Festival
Making a delicious dinner that I haven’t made before. Something different is always more exciting but it’s even better when it actually tastes nice too
Sitting chatting with our housemates about the meanings of our names and just having a giggle together

The new Good Magazine
Someone telling me they liked my dress
Catching sight of my new haircut in the mirror and thinking ‘yeah, I like that’

Finding a scarf in a vintage shop with a dog on that looks just like our old dog, Dingo.
Big woolly socks. God I love big woolly socks.
Having lunch in Martha’s Pantry – a girly, floral cafe filled with cakes, pastels and all sorts of twee things.

My boyfriend bringing me toast and painkillers to ease my hangover as I lay pathetically sprawled on the sofa trying to work

And then buying biscuits, ice cream (twice) and French cakes

Wearing a nice outfit out in the evening and feeling really happy in it

Listening to Ben Howard, wearing my purple rain coat I bought in Cornwall and walking along in the slight rain reminded me so strongly of everything about our holiday in Cornwall last summer. Our first real holiday together, my favourite place and the moment we decided to go travelling together for a long time. Who knew walking in the rain would bring back such happy memories

I tried on all my clothes I’m taking travelling when I was supposed to be working. Exciting and much more fun

My boyfriend had a meat free lunch today because its National Vegetarian Week. I’m sure he’s doing it for all his own reasons but I feel a little bit touched, like he’s doing it because he knows it will make me happy. Either way, it’s great.
