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.

A night out with Jo and Jonny.

Bumping into my favourite cousin on said night out.

DELICIOUS food. Momos, thali, the whole lot. So good.

Vietnamese with my cousin.

I’m really enjoying reading my book at the moment.

The photo of me aged 13 that mum sent today. So funny. Great bandana and purple knitted shoulder bag combo.

Coffee and catch ups with my cousin at Tate Britain.

Walking through Green Park, arm in arm. And taking photos for her Bumble.

Going to see a musical last minute for £4. The fight scenes were hilarious!

Coming up to the boat to see my parents. Watching the Vicar of Dibley. Sitting by the fire.

Christmas! 

Presents, cooking together, all the food, Jane and Tony coming over, all the cheers-ing, chatting to Stuart on the phone, my new DMs, Stick Man, skyping with the Fems, sitting in front of the fire, playing with Alexa, a feminist book from my brother, Alec’s weird melting video, playing the piano, Soph getting the body mop, Snapchat and naming a gravy boat after Stuart. 

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. 


Discovering Hyrrs (feminist hymns) and doing a couple of hours volunteering for Bloody Good Period, sorting out tampons and pads and eating mince pies.

Travelling around London and everyone is happy and smiling and carrying big bags full of presents to take home for Christmas. 

Everyone together for Christmas in B&H’s house. Indian food, fire, family. So lovely. Let Christmas begin!

Werk werk werk werk werk. It’s nice to be useful for a day. 

Lots of lovely messages online about my vagina clothes. Including a sweet one from my dad. So exciting!

He called me his girlfriend. And we just had such a nice evening together. I smiled the whole way home. 

Waking up to funny stories with my cousin.

Matilda was at our house again! Lots of strokes.

Going for a walk around the park as the sun set and the hangover slightly receded. 


Learning about parliament and the government and finding it so ridiculously interesting.

Rowan’s – Mario Kart and kareoke with my cousin’s friends.

Having my cousin come to stay afterwards. Via cheesy chips. Very drunk cheesy chips.


Travel Man. Silly. Funny. 

Seeing Toby and Jane and Granny at the theatre. 

Watching Han’s incredible students perform The Tempest. It was so good. I was so proud of her and all her kids. I’m glad I made the effort to go down for it. 


A sunny autumn walk around the park. With the leaves and the blue sky and no headphones on.
Baking ginger biscuits. Eating a lot of the dough before any baking actually happened.

Lino printing some gold joy cards. 

Also family whatsapp lolz with vegetable faces.

A day with family for Eileen’s 90th birthday. Cousin cuddles.

Coming home to Dolly, the most calm and beautiful dog. I sat on the floor and cuddled her for ages.

Getting into bed at half 8. 

This vulva. It makes me smile. It looks a bit like a potato but in the loveliest way. It was this image I chose to share my story. 

The bright green fields on the train up to see my family. 

All my family, on the boat. 

A card from my parents. The artwork is so similar to mine from uni.

My lovely doctor. I really liked him.

I went to the gym. Operation positive is on.


A giant sunflower

Going to Fulham Palace with my cousin

Food of the future! 


A little four person pub quiz team. It was nice. 

Delicious pub pizza.

Mum listening to my whole story and not interrupting.


A sad day but reminiscing about funny Nan stories.

No Such Thing As A Fish on the train home. It was just such a funny episode. Shoelaces, brown diamonds and international listeners.

Watching Bake Off in the lounge with Bivan. Rather than sitting alone in my room all night. That was a blessing in disguise.


Seeing my parents new flat for the first time. And giving them my handmade bowl as a housewarming gift. And it being fun. And nice. And no arguments.

Going for a drink at their local, cool pub. It’s nice here.

Okja. Sad but funny too. I want a big pig best friend.


Dinner and drinks with Soph. Beers and Korean food.

Telling someone who gets the Helena story and feels indignant and outraged on my behalf. 

Being calm and confident in my one to one. Saying how I felt and asking all the questions I needed to. 

The wedding as whole was lovely. Reena looked beautiful.

The shoe pile during the dancing. Even the uncles shoes.

Making the table laugh at dinner with my vagina pottery.
