Potted up the spider plant babies.

Sewed a pair of tiny dungarees after work when I really just wanted to lie on the sofa. I’m really glad I did something.

Photos of mum and dad with Fred and baby Alfie. 😍

Chocolate mousse made with tofu.

New nephew.

Rosie coming round for chats and tea.

Meeting Martha for the first time and hanging out with both the families for Fred’s birthday.

When he called me auntie Jo and held my hand.

Tried a cucumelon.

Pushing Noah through the tube station in his pram. Felt a bit weird but kinda cool.

Everyone together for the awards ceremony, with a new award for Eileen and Maurice.

Being with all the family at Fam Camp. Han was happy to be here, Fred played with all of us, the sun is out.

Sitting around a camp fire laughing with Soph, Holly and mum.

Being in the countryside, smelling fresh air, being in a field with sheep.

Playing with Fred.

Fred was wearing the dinosaur trousers I made him.

Zooming with the fam for Ben’s birthday. And finding out there’s another baby on the way.

The sun shining in the afternoon as I finished Ben’s trousers.

Working on the booklet. And losing track of time because I was so into it.

Feeling more connected to the family chat. It’s silly but having Rob like some things that I like makes me hope he will see me in a better light.

Walking in the sun at lunchtime.

Fred taking off his other trousers and only wanting to wear the Dino ones.

Ordered a new mattress. I can’t wait!

Jollof rice and then a mango.

The new plant from my neighbour.

A walk with Jo. And giving her some flowers. Also the delicious almond croissant.

Getting my very late Christmas and birthday presents from my parents. Opening presents is fun.

My two goals were to write a job application and organise the craft kits. And I managed about 90% of both.

Listening to the family playlist. And being more a part of the WhatsApp group.

Good old rice for dinner. I bloody love rice.

Finally tried the vegan bao buns. Ate the whole lot.

Went to the park and watched the robins fly around, the squirrels scamper over the trees and then found a heart shaped leaf.

Shared WAP with the family playlist and it got some good feedback from the cousin that dislikes me.

Multitasking and doing my day job whilst doing vulva stuff too. I felt so accomplished today.

Seeing the family.

Being outside next to the caravan, sitting in the sun.

Fred’s face when we sang happy birthday to him

Being in Brighton and Hove for the day, walking in the sun, playing with the stones on the beach and feeling my family roots.

Chatting to Lydia about vulvas, imposture syndrome and feeling like you’re in competition. I feel reinvigorated again!

Coming home and sewing and eating gyoza.

Going for the walk when I wasn’t sure I wanted to but it was lovely. And I saw some golden hour graffiti.

Voice notes from Rosie and Jen and a WhatsApp call with the Fems plus one.

Little Ben is veggie!

Swimming in the river, by the cows.

And shooing them off with mum when they came charging at us as we got in the water.
