Playing with Fred.

Seeing Fred and Dad playing quiet games together.

Fred was wearing the dinosaur trousers I made him.

The beautiful blue sea.

The coastal walk.

Getting to know (and joke with) Andrea, Graham and Doreen. And feeling like an adult with them.

Going for a walk in the sunshine between the funeral and the crematorium.

Having a pizza for dinner.

Lovely photos of all the family. Of Eileen. And Grandma.

Adding peanut butter to my lunchtime noodles.

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.

My parents being at my Labia Lessons. They were adorable.

Tash dropping round my care package – so adorable!

My sexual preference, written on the side of a cardboard box.

Tasty Itto.

Walking with my cousin, both in our raincoats.

Ben’s beautiful bright sunny bathroom.

A BBQ in the garden, in the sun.

Singing out loud on the rail replacement bus on the way back to London.

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.

The beautiful beautiful Thames by Oxford. So peaceful and idyllic.

Ben and Han’s beautiful sunny bathroom. I wanted to shower in there forever.

Going on Twister on the pier in Brighton.

The incredibly aubergine thing from the Japanese restaurant that we were so lucky to get a seat at.

Going to see nan.

Seeing my family again.

Playing with Freddie and he giggles and smiles and trusts me.

Bum bum bum bum bum bum TUMMY!

Putting up my artwork from Becky.

Talking to Ben about our eco centre.

Starting a new pattern. I’m confused but I’m excited to get them made.

Sean arrived!

My parents got to see Fred finally.

Went to the office and spoke to people and saw exciting police things.

Same day smear test.

Accidentally walking the right way home, taking me past the final tube that I would otherwise have missed.

Getting a good response from my family about the BLM information I gave to them

Happy potato.

Next batch of fabric arrived!

Baked what looks like a successful carrot cake! Honestly, non-vegan baking is so much easier.

Foot peel mask with Sean, but remotely.

Also Asian Wang lols with my brother.

Quizzing in the park with Jo, Jonny and Alec.

CrossTown doughnuts.

Officially coming out to my family and them being so bloody lovely about it.

Also watching Becoming. God Michelle Obama is great.

Making a new thing. Sewing a stripy jumper from stretchy fabric.

Walking up to Highgate Woods and seeing all the trees and light and leaves. Two hours of walking. I really needed it.

Seeing Eileen loving Zoom.

Buying a fan and putting it together.

Seeing my mum in the dungarees I made for her.

A nap under the blanket, by the window, with the sunlight peaking through the leaves.

Lying in the park under the sunny leaves with my cousin, eating blueberries.

Accidentally looking up cheap homes in Falmouth and dreaming about moving down there and spending my life making stuff.

Ordering a whole load of fabric for more sewing. Including some trousers for me.

Making my new rusty coloured linen dungarees.

Finally getting back to the Parkland Walk.

Hearing Grandma and Granddad’s story by all of us on Zoom.

Aaaaand a conversation about orgasms with Sean on the phone before bed.

Embroidery. For the quarentine quilt.

Seeing my adorable little nephew and sis in my dungarees. They look great!

The video intro that Georgie made for the Eggs quiz m

Sewing mum’s dungarees. As a distraction but also I’m so happy she wants a pair!

Sunbathing in the park. Not technically allowed yet but reading in the sun for an hour was bliss.

Han sent round two cakes to cheer me up.

My cousin bought me flowers.

I went to the park to read. Even though I know I shouldn’t. But the weather was lovely.

Ming loves her dungarees. And so does Jen.
