More autumn leaves on the Gruffalo trail.

Pulling faces with Fred in selfie mode.

Our huge pile of toilet roll.

The beautiful autumn leaves and low sun.

Fred. When he smiled and laughed with me.

And when he walked into the glass door.

Looking at my nine growing tomatoes. And telling the Remainers about them.My big pile of sewn vulvas. I’m getting there.Mum sending me a photo of vegan coffee cakes. I feel a bit bad about not wanting to go this weekend after that. She loves seeing us and she loves feeding her family.

My cousin came to the Period Party. I’d totally forgotten she was coming.

Sarah’s talking vulva.

People leaving, saying such lovely things about learning new information and how much they enjoyed it.

Seeing the wooden planter steaming gently in the sun, as the water evaporated off.

The Sound Bath with Sophie. Really relaxing and dreamy.

Linking arms and walking along laughing.

Granny. Little willies.

Watching Fred enjoy my present.

My holiday anniversary present from Han.

Going for lunch in the park and thinking that it doesn’t matter what time I go back to the office.The park with Soph after work. Turns out I didn’t need her to cheer me up as much I thought I would.High fiving the dog.

A delicious Bakewell pudding from Bakewell

The textile museum

A walk along the river

Paint splatters

Taking a moment to sit in the park before going back into the office

Dinner at the Wild Food Cafe with Soph, discussing guys who should totally be into us but aren’t.

My boobs illustration! Looks amazing.

Going for a walk along the railway line in the sun

Going for a second walk and smelling the grass

Yoga. For courage. Perfectly timed.

Freddie smacking himself in the head with a wooden spoon whilst playing the saucepans

All the birds outside on the tree as I had an early Saturday breakfast

Making Fred laugh and smile and feeling his solid little tummy

Bluebells and a walk in the woods

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.

The conservatory at the Barbican.

Delicious pasta dinner with Holly.

The photo of my parents looking in love in amongst the plants.

Listening to my podcast.

The squirrel that was right beside me as I walked through the estate.

Having mum and dad in London, walking along the canal in the sun and lunch on a canal boat cafe.

The Paper Man. Such an amazing play that I just wasn’t expecting.

And dad telling me they’d watched 100 Vaginas

Walking through the park and over the grass at lunchtime. It felt so wonderful to be on grass with the sun shining. I felt so connected to nature.

The beautiful delicate flowers that have popped up. One was picked so I carried it around for a while.

My brother. My loving, wonderful, brilliant brother.

The Female Persuasion. I read over half the book today and finished it. So good.

Cross legged Freddie in the bath.

An almost sunny day when it was supposed to rain a lot. I got to be outside, listening to new music. And discovering an song that I really needed: My Name Isn’t

Freddie is playing with the blocks I made him.

The Period Party! Lots of money, lots of fun, lots of pads, lots of glitter. Another super successful event!

He wants to see me again. He’s confusing the hell out of me but I guess it’s fair enough.

Another day of lots of listening to Sustainababble whilst walking round the borough.

Decided to take a route back through the park. Even though I was exhausted.

My nephew licking his mates head.

A walk up to muddy bottom with some sheep.

Bird watching with dad, by the peaceful sea

Bananagrams. And I won!

The photo of me and Ben from Nan’s house, up in the pineapple frame in their kitchen.

Freddie’s badger bum trousers.

Helping with bath time.

Cuddles with Fred

Feeding him, burping him and manoeuvring him around

When he shook his head at being asked if he wants to wake up

My parklets. So pretty. Even if it was too rainy for anyone to actually sit in them…

Another tweet with my face in from the Mayor. Mum will be happy!

Pizza with Jo and her family. Much more fun than I expected and a free meal too!

Meeting baby Freddie for the first time!

Seeing Ben with him.

Lying on the sofa with him asleep on my chest.

Fred photos from my brother. Sort of.

Free honey when I literally ran out of honey this morning.

Delegating to Adam.

I’m an auntie! Freddie is here. He’s massive. They are all happy and healthy.

Hearing about how great Ben was throughout it all. As I knew he would. And also chatting to him more.

I really enjoyed Bake Off this week. And it was fun to watch with Jonny.

A beautifully hot day. Really truly like summer is still here. So another lunchtime in the park.

Jen for dinner. But not for ages. I respect a friend that doesn’t stick around for hours.

And most importantly, my nephew is on the way! After pooing in the womb.

Quiet sunny lunch at home after some work in a different, prettier office

Feeling happier and chattier. Talking to Sarah and doing a bit of mental health championing.

Chatting and poppadoms with my cousin

I tried an Ofo bike. It was pretty exhilarating to cycle to work!

Feeling my nephew do a mini kick in Han’s tummy

Chatting to Granny. She’s such a superstar.

Chris telling everyone to stop discussing every damn baby thing in baby bingo.

A day on the boat with my parents. So so lovely to be cruising along on the countryside.

Stuart chatting more to them both. It was so much better this time.

Feeling mega close to Stuart, for a second day in a row.

A day in the garden down at my brother’s, eating homemade pizza from the pizza oven.

Touching the bump and feeling my nephew move for the first time.

More good sex in the morning.
