A morning message from James asking how I am. That was really appreciated.

A short self love yoga with lots of massaging of shoulders and feet. Plus some freestyle yoga afterwards.

Lizzo.

Very hot park at lunch.

Cycling home on a Jump.

Cutesie texts from James that made me happier than it really should have.

The vulva workshop. Such a lovely small group with really great conversations and some good laughs.

The beautiful pink clouds and blue sky as I walked home.

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.

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.

Panda lamp 😂

Pho for lunch

The launch of Womenhood. The book that has my vulva and my story in it. I loved seeing Liv’s mum talking, hearing the cunt poems and being part of something quite great.

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

I can use the funding for Vagina stuff! Hurrah!

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.

A brilliant feminist who wants to be a part of the vulva workshops!

Smiles in yoga. I really needed the yoga today.

Lots of walking through London, listening to music. I really liked the song about the black Atlantis.

Period book launch. Photos, red blobs and tons of freebies.

Taking photos in the period photo booth with Jo

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.

Trying the tiny community cafe in the church. And sticking around when I realised I would have to talk to people. It was something different.

Getting a room of senior men in a meeting to realise I knew what I was talking about with one sentence. Suddenly they started looking at and talking to me, rather than just Andrew. That’s always a good feeling.

A massage for my neck. Minimal talking and some good advice for stretching my muscles.

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.

Volunteering at BGP. I wasn’t really looking forward to it but it was actually really nice.

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.

Hot summer lunchtime in the park, tanning my legs

Linking up and getting a fabulous new venue for the next Period Party

Making a dress in the evening and not even making a single mistake. A lovely quiet evening of making.

Being filmed for a documentary. The artist was so lovely and I felt so proud to have been there and taken part.

Having photos of my vulva taken too.

Shuffleboard at the pub.

I spoke on the panel for Vagina Day at the Feminist Library. It was fun!

Doing my vulva making workshop afterwards and getting to chat to some really interesting women, and a 9 year old girl.

Wearing a dress and trainers and no legggings.

Winning a prize for coming second to last at the pub quiz with the old housemates.

Bright blue skies today.

An evening with Rosie, sacking off the Happiness Festival for wine and chats instead.

Wagamama. I forgot how delicious it was.

This email from a friend/colleague. What a lovely thing to read.

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.

Discount Suit Company. Cocktails and chats.

We took BOW to WOW. And it was amazing.

One woman told us it was the reason she bought a ticket for WOW.

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.

Putting up an image of me on Instagram from BOW. It felt scary but exciting. It’s happening now. Happy International Women’s Day.

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.

Having almost 2,500 likes on my latest Instagram post. That’s so many more than I’ve ever had!

Mum’s blood test results are back. It’s pretty much certain that she doesn’t have ovarian cancer!

I might be in WOW twice! Vulva workshops are being considered!

Actual period blood. Please let this be the end of the hormone mayhem.

A night with Sarah. Lumiere and chips in a gay pub.

The Life of Trees exhibition at the V&A. And going there for a general wander around to look at things I wanted to see. It was tough at times but I loved this photo by Bae Bien U.

The condom workshop. Money, free condoms and strong women. 

This goat(?) His nose makes me smile.
