Picking the right seat, facing towards the fun team. Meaning I got to join in conversations with Matt and Keith and get a toffee crisp out of the deal.

Cheese and onion pasty. First day of my period calls for hot cheese and carbs.

Night of lolz with Jonny. Pizza, mice, TV.

Bears Vs babies. In the hairy box.

MOUSE! REDCHAIR! Games night with Jen.

Watching a documentary with Libby and Adam at work. With biscuits.

I just feel mega proud of all the things I did today for Clean Air Day:

Giving out free breakfasts to cyclists and making people happy on their way to work.

Doing the walk with the Mayor in the sun, feeling so proud that this was my idea and I did it all myself.

Packing up after the final event and walking back to the office with Laura, who is much funnier than I thought, and Stuart, who came down to help.

Plus me and Stuart had a fun evening like we used to have.

A tiring but great day!

Another free lunch from Roger. Salmon and plantain today.

The Fish guys, cheering me up after a teary evening.

A couple of fun chats at work. I like my team.

Ice cream at work. Love a Mars icecream. Especially on the first hot day of the year.

School trip out the office to see pollution themed exhibitions at Somerset House and the Barbican.

Sitting outside the Barbican in the sun with a beer and my fun colleagues.

Anti-baby shower chats with Victoria, general pointless chats with Adam.

Going up on the roof on a sunny day to get the monitor down.

Telling the Good Eggs about my penis snake, strangling dream.

Andrew telling me that other people have told him how good I am. That’s so lovely. I’m glad I’m making a good impression.

The idling event being cancelled tonight. Thank goodness. It’s absolutely freezing.

Drag Race All Stars. Ugh, so good.

Standing on the roof – almost looking at a London skyline. Always feels rebellious being on a roof.

More colleagues bonding. This time in a van.

Mildred’s. Finally. Very yummy.

Going for a walk around the park in the sun at lunchtime.

Spending a lot of the day chatting to Adam and Libby. No managers, no ‘adults’.

Coming home and sewing. Finally. I’ve been wanting to do it for days.

Lots of housemates in the kitchen. And I told them about BOW.

A team lunch for Anthony’s birthday. It was a nice bonding experience.

Free Fortnum and Mason bits. Hello yummy ginger biscuits and fabulous face oil.

Morning sex.

The whole team chatted about stupid shit like coffee and cheese. Felt like a bit of bonding.

He met my friends and it was fine!


Another £150 for chatting to friendly Northern Irish people.

Meeting Fran.

Hanging out with Gusty and Jen. Just like old times.

Last day at work! All the cake, all the carbs, all the chips, all the beers and all the vagina related presents.

They made me a cake decorated with vaginas, they bought me a cunt colouring in book and they made me a lovely card with vaginas, Rizo’s and beautiful goodbyes. 

And then in the middle of the night out, I got offered another job! And I got a place on the Influencing Chance course! Weeeee! Not doing so badly after all. 


Pizzas and beer downstairs in the office for my pre leaving leaving drinks

Gust being sweet and saying he’ll miss me.

Sharing the poo knife story.


Having someone to message on OKCupid.

Getting things done. When I’m busy I get a bit frantic but I enjoy it. Mostly. Me, Gust and Jen had some good moments today, getting our training ready together.

Ciaran’s story about the woman who drank soap. And wants to feed her kids conkers.

This beautiful garden, walking home in the sun. Serious garden envy.

Fun at work. Mainly in the morning before the Serious People got in. 

Just full of good vibes today. Remembering the fun of last night, making future plans, being full of energy. It’s been a good day!


Being surprised by the beautiful beach near Blackpool. It actually reminded me of being in Australia. And missing it. 

Wandering along it, litter picking in the sun.

Walking from the beach to the pub with Gust and Rose.


Shared Indian lunch, courtesy of Sabina. So yummy. 

A super intense yoga class. I like doing the crab.

Sitting in the garden at night, smelling the watered flowers and the evening air. It smelt beautiful. I wish I could have breathed more of it in.


Jen: Who’s Orangina is this?

James: DONT TOUCH IT

“Who’s Jen flirting with?”

I went for drinks with my colleagues after work. I LAUGHED. I TALKED. I FEEL NORMAL AGAIN. It’s ridiculous how different I feel. 

I bought the organic washed cotton duvet from Muji. For Jonny. And for me. I spent all my money in there. I’m so happy. I’ve dreamt of this moment for so long.

NEW PUPPY IN THE OFFICE!

Hanging out with Jen. I have some good colleagues. 

Boxfit. Punched the fuck out of shit.


“Are you laughing at ‘otter’?” 

“Yes”

Knuffle with Jen.

Crashing my brother’s band practise. Sitting outside the shed he built, listening to him play, drinking a beer. What a perfect evening. 

Work drinks. Lots and lots of drinks.

Hearing that people liked my vagina pot. And that Bob’s eyes almost popped out of his head. I guess I’ll be remembered.

Chips. Hot, salty, mayonnaise covered chips.


Lols with Jen on the train.

Talking about vagina bowls with new colleagues. Didn’t exactly go down brilliantly but it was funny to laugh about later.

Beer on the train on the way home. Virgin Train beers….


The sun, the birds, meditation. General happiness. I feel like the happiness could just burst out of my chest today.

You Can Call Me Al on the tube. Remembering Al’s wedding.

Conference giggles. The adorable old lady, stroke poo, texting Jen. And Joff. And Danny.

The view down the river. The lit up bridges. The shard. It still takes my breath away.

Silly work lols with Jen. Bulldog clips. Si senior.

Wine and Vietnamese with Holly. She almost cried when I explained the tattoo. She’s a babe.

Office duck chat.

Realising that I have done most of the things that I needed to do for the events. 

A fun lunchtime crossword. Bearcats and tablelands. 


My hands.

Lunch with Rose and James. A little quiz and a nice chat. It was a nice quiet, calm work day and I got loads done. I made an excellent to do list.

Coming home. Home home. Parent hugs. Familiar smells.


Joining the GAP team for lunch.

Leaving work for Christmas. YAS! I love Christmas, I love walking through sunset-y London, I love going home and I love being on holiday from work. Weeeee! 

Being at home, going to a big supermarket with my parents, talking about recycling and FairTrade things. 

Me, James and Rose reading the advent calendar jokes. And them both liking my sushi joke so much they both text it to their friends.
Delicious Japanese food from Tokyo Diner. And I didn’t eat meat!

Walking through Chinatown. I still love it.


She got my flowers. It’s nice to make people smile.

After work drinks with my colleagues.

I got through the day. It started off badly but I did it. And it wasn’t so bad. It’s not as hard as I sometimes think it is.
