Going for a walk along the railway line in the sun

Yoga. For courage. Perfectly timed.

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

Using the ULEZ as an opener on Hinge. And it worked!

Evening plans cancelled. Hello sofa and pyjamas.

Bizarrely, listening to chat about feminism in The Archers on Women’s Hour.

Women sharing their love letters to their vulvas.

Giving myself time to put everything away calmly and as slowly as I wanted.

Smiling in the Uber on the way home, feeling proud of myself for raising another £302 for Bloody Good Period and for bringing sex and vulva positivity to another room of people.

An evening watching RuPaul with Jonny. Do, do, do, do the moves! 🤦

The International Women’s Day networking event at lunchtime.

Marmite on toast and a London Fog when I got home after a long day.

A lie in. I slept till 9 and it was wonderful.

A lovely walk around regent’s park and seeing Primrose Hill for the first time.

Period. End of Sentence. So uplifting. We are the creators of the universe.

My beautiful new plant. Big and green and beautiful. Carrying her back from the shop in the sunshine, with her leaves in my face was pure joy. Worth every penny.

Recording the podcast this morning. It made me feel much happier and more positive and really proud of the things I do.

Music in the sun.

Going to the Galentine’s day brunch, when I didn’t really want to. But it took me out of myself which was great. Also got to hang with Buster, this big, beautiful dog.

Discovering new music by women, singing about feminism and getting oral sex and it made me feel so much stronger and happier.

Our quiet flat back to me and Jonny for the night. Homemade pizza and silly TV.

The cup of tea. Feeling grown up and in control.

The sky between the building as the sun set. It was better than this photo. By about a million.

Meeting the Maya Centre and agreeing to volunteer for their art sessions to encourage body positivity. I feel *so* good about this. It brings together so many facets of my life and my skills and my passions. Vagina education, reclaiming your body, being proud of your genitals, fighting mental health, recovery from sexual assault, helping women, being part of the sisterhood, art and crafts and how they can help with healing, using my facilitator and trainer skills and doing more volunteering. This just feels so good. I’m so proud of me.

The Winter Crafts Wellbeing Hour. Lots of people came along and they really liked it!

An evening with Jonny. Eating dinner together. Watching shit TV. Eating too much.

Going to the library for the first time. And coming out with four brilliant books by women.

Doing some more Japlanning. Hello veggie restaurants in Tokyo.

Lying on the floor and reading a book in one sitting. Then another.

This tweet.

Holding a meeting at work about ideas and feeling in charge and creative. And learning about the ULEZ stuff and just feeling like my boss really likes me and is happy I’m there.

Dinner party with Alec and Jo. Especially chat about Jo’s big feet.

Another sweet message about This is a Vagina.

A flake turned into a free evening all to myself. It was total bliss.

Doing a bit of project work. I updated my teemill store and eventually figured out how to make an Instagram story.

A lovely coffee in the sun with Jo and deciding to set up Bloody Women. Or something similar.

An afternoon with Jen. Sun walks, a picnic in the park and Floundering with Maria.

Getting this message from someone on This is a Vagina. So lovely.

Yep. Four today. It’s been a lovely day.

An email from a women on Friday, thanking us for what we did and saying she’s now signed up for therapy. Such an incredible feeling.

Talking about Body of Women and feminism with Pete. He’s a sweet guy.

Reminiscing about Mike with Lauren and Bivan as she cleaned out the gross fridge.

When his socks matched the floor of the Tate. And the woman next to us laughed too.

Getting hyped up on coffee and going to see the fatberg. And the cat memes that helped to get women the vote.

Meeting Mary.

Getting it all done ready for WOW tomorrow. And having a little dance. And feeling like I’ve really properly smiled for the first time in a few days.

My new plate. Whoops.

Leaving work early.

Group chat about menstrual chunks and goddess rituals. Great in spag bol.

The play. Rejoicing at her wondrous vulva the young woman applauded herself. So good. So emotional in a way I didn’t expect. But really good. I love seeing feminist things. It makes me feel stronger.

The face licking battle on the sofa.

He bought me Mary Beard’s Women and Power book.
