Barry in Archway. So bloody lovely and helpful. Took me right out of my bad mood.

Clicking my back at the end of yoga. That felt very needed.

Knowing I have the flat to myself for a week and a half. Perfect timing as my PMT was outrageous today and now I can live exactly as I want until it goes away.

Meeting John Thorne and he told me lots of helpful things.

Getting an answer right (totally by accident) on University Challenge.

Headache yoga with Adriane.

Adam getting a Drive Now car and driving me home because it was raining too damn hard.

I’m going on holiday in a few days time! Goodbye shitty rainy June weather!

Yoga in the living room. Green tea. Dark chocolate. And a whole evening of reading my book.

Talking to Andrew about vulvas, penises, willies and dicks.

Deciding to come home and relax rather than go to the talk.

Being helpful to Andrew when Claudia was being a complete dickhead. It felt good to be needed and to be able to help.

Tried a new porridge ‘recipe’. Hello turmeric breakfast.

Realising that I was further up the stairs that I thought I was.

Matt walking two hours to work because I told him it was Walk to Work day. And he sent me photos of the walk and everything. He’s such a sweetheart!

Dinner and drinks and walks along the can at night with Sophie.

How neat and smooth my bed looked this morning

My flowers from Roger

A funny date with Chris

Using my delicious Christmas moisturiser again. I forgot how lovely it smelt.

Japanese cheesecake from Adam.

Deciding to walk home in the rain. Watching it bounce off the pavement and catch the light.

The morning smoothie from Roger.

Saying nice things to my friends.

Texts. Finally. I know I shouldn’t be so dependant on it but that feels like a legit excuse and it feels like the date actually will happen tomorrow.

Adam being back at work.

Spending the day booking Japan accommodation.

A Cos dress in a charity shop for £15.

Breaking news.

Singing on my own in the house.

Sitting and watching Adam record his football soundbite. Weird but funny.

Spending my lunchtime back in the park. Hello nice weather.

I got a ‘lol’ in an email from Simon. Can’t believe it.

Spending the day next to Adam, chatting away.

Drinking coffee and listening to music with Adam and generally not getting much done.

Playing Would You Rather on the train.

Some funny M&S packaging

Hot chocolate. I’ve been craving one for weeks.

Potatoes and butter.

Adam running down the stairs after me shouting ‘wait for meeee’

Having Adam back at work

Thinking about next holidays. And staying in my parents lovely flat.

Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again. SO GOOD. I even clapped at the end. I never clap at the end of films. I loved it. It was perfect.

Watching the sunbathing blackbird at lunchtime. And discovering that that is what she was doing.

Good Eggs stupid photos. Mainly of Alec. Really made me laugh.

Finishing the day with a phone call from Eric, who wants to help me get more street art in the borough. I like it when people want to help you.

Relaxing in the sun at lunchtime. It was a lovely temperature today. You could sunbathe a bit without being too hot.

Sitting next to Keith. Such a positive and lovely guy. He really made today nice.

Swimming. Swim swim swimming.

Delicious almond croissant courtesy of Adam for elevensies.

A quiet haircut reading my book where the hairdresser did not make my mole hurt or bleed. And for only £25!

A delicious pizza.

Accidentally taking a sneaky photo of a colleague with the flash on. Thank god she didn’t notice.

The sun came out at lunch again. Another sunbathing-in-the-park lunchtime.

Making four pairs of pants in the beautiful studio.

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.

Andrew ‘but let’s go back to the most important thing, me finishing my story’.

A mini nap in the park at lunchtime.

The squirrels running around. Especially the one that looked like it was doing a body builder pose.

Another tasty meal from Roger. This time, his notorious breakfast salad.

Cutting things out at work.

Having a night out with Jonny where it felt like it used to. And going to see Sam’s new signed band play. I didn’t like the music but going to a gig was fun and seeing friends was nice.

Sitting in the park bench at lunch time, reading. Letting my eyes readjust to the green and blue of the park.

Realising that I’ve actually got a lot organised for Clean Air Day.

Having a long old chat with Libby at work.

A free lunch from a colleague. And it was bloody delicious!

The smell of shampoo coming out of a neighbour’s house that reminded me of summer holidays.

I made semi-vegan cupcakes and they were actually really yummy.

Speaking to someone about having me and my vulva in a documentary about being a woman.

A fun day with Adam. He was on better form today and it was really nice.

Packing everything up. Bit weird. Bit sad. Very exciting. Can’t wait for the new place tomorrow.

Sitting around the corner with Adam. Talking about shingles.

Coming home in the afternoon and cracking on with the job application.

RuPaul on a Friday night. You get a pickle! You get a pickle! You get a pickle!

Staying late and chatting to Adam

Hearing about the recycling job. It sounds good. Not really sure what to do now though.

Penis straws

Telling Adam I didn’t really rate New York as a city. And watching him be outraged.

A bath.

Dark chocolate peanut butter cups. Getting me through the jetlag.

Mega dog walking group.

Getting to walk around, have a free coffee and be out the office for a long time today. Plus Aesop freebies and buying dollars!

Emailing Adam all day. We’re very similar workers.


Making friends with Hannah. For the one day we’ll work together. But she’s lovely. We had a really nice, if a little chilly, lunch together.

Being offered another time for the second interview. It’s nice to be chased. And I think I might want it a bit more.

Feeling quietly accomplished today. I took in lunch – a healthy delicious one in. I worked hard. I made another proper dinner (using a whole variety of pans) and then set up an invoice and tax tracker. 


Coffee with Jen. She was nice to me and didn’t tell me off.

Going to the WOW campaign workshop. So lovely to meet more fabulous women. And be asked for help on a project by someone who was facilitating it! Such a buzz. 

Lottie’s party. Alec’s stories, seeing Ciaran, drunk Jonny, inflexible Doug and hanging out with Will. It was a really fun night!
