Sprout, my teeny, tiny niece or nephew. 😍

A massage with Joy.

Picking up a flower on the way to work and having it, bright and happy, on my desk all day.

Flowers on my way to work

Spoken word night for feminists. Some incredible women and amazing poems.

Running for the bus down the middle of the road afterwards.

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.

A walking meeting, circling the park in the sun.

Walking home as the sun was setting across the park, watching birds up in the sky.

I bought the flowers. It’s done. It’s over.


A walk through the little park, to get out the house.

Flirting with Brian.

The house party! Dancing with Alec. Howling into the wind. The fire. Laughing with Lauren.


New brunch place. Delicious and cheap Turkish breakfast. 

Gardening. Cut the grass, did some weeding, moved a few plants around. I like that the garden is my little area. I feel proud of it.

Seeing Crispin and dancing to Hot Dub Time Machine. I especially loved the glitter canons, balloons and confetti! 

This beautiful garden, walking home in the sun. Serious garden envy.

Fun at work. Mainly in the morning before the Serious People got in. 

Just full of good vibes today. Remembering the fun of last night, making future plans, being full of energy. It’s been a good day!


Put my house plants out with my window plants for a bit of a holiday. Still enjoying having plants on my windowsill.

Washed, sun dried and remade my bed with my Muji covers. Love it when you can do it all in one day.

Pottery. I was so much better at coning this week. A huge improvement! Now I just need to be more daring.


Sewing. For someone else. 

Gardening together. 

Having a window box full of flowers.

It’s been such a peaceful day. Really quite perfect.


It happened yesterday but this Aja gram still makes me laugh.
Buying two long flowerpots for the windowsills. Plants are happiness.
Coming home to a mars ice cream in the garden. I’d been thinking about that ice cream for a good few hours.


The Nova Joy plant has flowered! New beautiful joy here we come!

Sitting in the garden, picking weeds with Lauren.

Then chatting to her for quite a while. Looking up Russian dating sites, talking about garden plans (mostly solar powered fairy lights). It was exactly what I needed. 


Shared Indian lunch, courtesy of Sabina. So yummy. 

A super intense yoga class. I like doing the crab.

Sitting in the garden at night, smelling the watered flowers and the evening air. It smelt beautiful. I wish I could have breathed more of it in.

I got my necklace fixed. Finally. My beautiful necklace that I wear everyday.

Nan’s pressed flowers. They worked and they look beautiful. They’re up in my room now.

I loled a few times today at No Such Thing As A Fish. And I listened to a new one.

**UPDATE** My cousin is here for the night. And she makes me lol. “UPDATE. I only went for two sanitary towels”


Even more sunflowers popping​ up.

Coffee in the sun with Jo. I needed hugs and sympathy after last night.

Walking around Gillespie Park. The bit I haven’t been to before. Flowers and bees and beautiful things. 🐝🌺🌼🌷🌻


Two of my sunflower seeds are sprouting! I’m so happy!

The free plant giveaway by the cute community group. Got me a chilli plant and some salad leaves. 

The delicious food at Holly and Al’s BBQ. Of course. 


Flower delivery. For being an Independent Woman.

Visiting Wiseman’s new flat and sitting on the balcony, drinking beer and talking about boys

Bibimbap. So delicious! And the after party too.

When the sun came out in the garden

Being all together at Ben and Hannah’s

Hearing his band play


Crouch End Broadway. It’s like a little village or rural town. So adorable. 

Going through some woods… FOR WORK. I touched dogs!

Sewing. I forgot how much I love you.


A valentine’s card from my favourite person.

Having someone to text. All evening.

Boxercise. Smashed it.

(Also, Leightor and his travel bracelet)


She got my flowers. It’s nice to make people smile.

After work drinks with my colleagues.

I got through the day. It started off badly but I did it. And it wasn’t so bad. It’s not as hard as I sometimes think it is. 


A relaxing, if slightly weird, yoga class. It’s fun to do shoulder stands and back bends.

A bath. With pink salts and flowers in. Because why not.

Ringing to cancel boxercise and discovering it was cancelled anyway. Yay! 

Just my beautiful garden. And a ghost balloon. And the sun. The sun is back.

Shopping with Jonny. 

And then watching him play a pretty computer game. With stealth killing, not shootings.

Aww it was my last day at work and it was so lovely. The big Bring and Share lunch in the garden, the Rinkoff pastries, Andy showing up with donuts, Charlie bringing me flowers, the presents and card and money, the drinks in the pub, laughing with Rochelle and Andy, the deep throat story, people turning up that I didn’t think would come, getting a hug from Andy. Everything was lovely. I’ll really miss them.

Pink blossom.
Smiling while swimming, remembering Alec’s airport queuing comments
A day at LCR. ‘Meetings’ outside in the sunny garden, Andy and Rochelle and a BBQ.

The different coloured blossoms on the walk home
A hoovered room
Smooth legs

The daffodils in my room
A new job? Maybe.
But also being told that I stood out as a brilliant, clever and quick thinking person in the interview for my current job. It was nice to hear that.

Hannah. Mirror photos and just generally.
Trying on glasses with mum
Walking through all the bluebells with dad.

Beautiful flowers.
Clarkenwell. So pretty.
A bit normality.

image

Daffodils. Just because. And they remind me of mum.
The sun.
Delicious salmon.

Purple dick men
Dinner with an old friend in her beautiful house
The buskers on the tube. A bit of funky saxophone never hurt anyone.

Seeing an old friend for the first time in 20 months. And she bought me flowers, chocolate cake and wine.
Going for a walk around the village. Splashing through mud and ambling down windy country roads.
Finding the perfume I made. I smell lovely again.
