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.

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.

I got given flowers as a leaving present from a lovely customer at work. It was such a surprise.
And then I got given a bottle of wine 2 minutes later by another customer. I was so touched.
I put my flatmates bed together all by myself.

image

Finding a piece of foam the perfect size for our camper bed in a craft shop and the woman selling it to me for just $10. It’s like it was meant to be.
Singing XO at the bus stop, surrounded by the smell of some beautiful flowers.
Having the car registered to my name. It’s fully ours now.

Flowers from the sweetest customer.
Taking a moment to myself, looking up at the stars and enjoying the fresh air on the way home from work.
Stacking cards on top of the cat and our sleeping housemate.

Having my parents here. So lots of smiles. Way too many to pick just three.

Crawling through the huge metal Antony Gormley sculpture with them

Spotting the four people high up on the Shard

Watching dad peer out the windows of the DLR with excitement

Mums face as she finally got to see the Gormley exhibition

The beautiful daffodils they bought me

Seeing the bold fox in the car park again

Showing them the Olympic stadium

Just having them here, near me, spending time together.
