Climbing with Jonny. Hot men everywhere. Also I just got on with it and did some of the ones that scared me.

Making dinner, two lunches and a breakfast. When I almost bought a pizza.

Touching two fluffy dogs at the anti idling event. One was called Bear. Very appropriate.

Cooking and baking. I made vegan pâté.

Made a big fabric box for my winter stuff. Quick sewing.

Dinner with Jonny. Plus cakes and Bake Off The Professionals. I gasped too much.

Reading in bed, by the window with the newly leafy tree outside.

Cooking cooking cooking all day. I made so many new things and today!

Looking up stuff to do in Georgia. Including a stay in a fancy spa with its our aquarium?

The softness of my shirt as I put it on in the morningSmiling at the pretty man on the way to work, wearing a similar blue waterproof coat to meTwo new recipes for dinner. Vegan macaroni cheese with no fake cheese. And chocolate and peanut butter chia pudding with oat cream and raspberries.

A day by myself. Reading loads of my big heavy book on the sofa.

Finishing my silver top for the wedding.

Cooking three new recipes.

Yoga. Plant pruning. Sunny walk.

Dusk, with its pinky clouds and lovely light and birds singing

A recipe dinner. Broccoli cakes. I forget how good recipes are.

Cooking new things

A night in cooking with real ingredients and recipes.

Doing yoga at home.

I just feel so much more bouncy and energised. I don’t know if it’s period, Stuart or this new diet. But it feels good.

My first food processor. What an adult and lovely thing to buy. And hello first soup I made with it!

My period started. Two weeks late and totally out of the blue.

Honestly. Thinking about Stuart. I don’t know what to do but I enjoyed the daydreams today.

Lying in the park at lunch time.

Cooking lots of veg and making meals. I feel very organised.

Painting the yellow bits on the chairs.

Having Stuart round, planning our cottage getaway. 

I made a ridiculously delicious dinner. I’m so proud of it. Squash, leek and spinach gratin.

Finally getting round to writing the rules for BOW. Felt good to get something achieved. 

A day of cooking all together. I made vulva mince pies. Obvs.

Pizza oven pizzas for Christmas Eve dinner. Sitting out by the fire with dad and Ben was lovely.

Reminiscing about nan at dinner. Her terrible driving, her sneaky cigarettes and her penis chats. And watching Ben laugh so hard about wing mirrors. 

Bright autumn leaves on the walk home.

Being good at interviewing. I like being on this side of the table.

A big veggie stew on a baked potato with Bivan for dinner. Plus some wine. In front of Bake Off. 

And the smell of lavender in the fresh evening air.


Realising I’m good at chatting to people. Like Ben.

Chatting to Will. Bit weird but still nice.

Peanut butter in dhal. 

Did a bit more carving on my bowl. It’s smoother now. And I finally got to use a curved knife.

Set up OKCupid. And currently don’t feel bad about any of it.

Made a great soup. Yes to Sunday cooking.  


Sunday baking.

Organising my birthday. Maybe I do like birthdays afterall. 

The cricket and the glass frog on Planet Earth II


Visited a recycling centre. I’ve wanted to go to one for years. It was so interesting. I loved it. And I got paid to go!

Homemade pizza night with Ivan’s pizza oven. So delicious. 

Alec’s music recommendation. Vagina themed.


Bake Off!

Actually managed to cook a nice dinner for someone with minimal freak outs. 

SnapChat filters. I got the giggles

A successful dinner. Even if I was cooking the most middle class thing on BBC recipes.
Our funny messages in Matt’s birthday card.

I made another dinner. And it was something new and delicious and healthy.
Andrew: Is that it, five minutes? Thanks for popping in!
Just being back to my normal self, sans hormones. So much calmer and nicer.

A day of food smell memories. Red wine-y bolognese, coffee and smoked salmon. Mum’s cooking, camping holidays and dad.
A free slice of cake.
My flatmate walking past my work and sticking his tongue out at me.

I made a pretty impressive book cake for my flatmate.
I woke myself up by laughing this morning.
Walking down to the market together, being silly and singing songs.
