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.

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.
