Home baked cinnamon swirls for breakfast with fruit and Jo.

Being in the water at the lido. Floating on my back and staring up at the sky.

The Instagram of puppies falling down stairs. Can’t stop laughing.

Putting up the signs for my Clean Air Walk and feeling just so mega proud of myself for having done it all.

Having Han in London and Jo back from holiday. We all hung out at our house. That was nice.

Sharing my bed with Han and having those nice late night chats with the light off.

Another tasty meal from Roger. This time, his notorious breakfast salad.

Cutting things out at work.

Having a night out with Jonny where it felt like it used to. And going to see Sam’s new signed band play. I didn’t like the music but going to a gig was fun and seeing friends was nice.

I went to the gym for the first time in forever. I went an hour before it opened by accident so it was completely empty.

A couple of the photos at the Sony World Photography Exhibition.

A night out in Brixton with the London Eggs.

Sun! Warmth! I think winter might finally be over!

Sitting in the sun outside Somerset House drinking an iced tea.

Really enjoying the birthday bus crawl. Especially as the bus route was on diversion.

Chats with Libby about not wanting to have babies or get married.

Seeing Rosie and Jim at Sam’s birthday. I love those guys.

He told me he loves me.

Carrie Bradshaw’s house (underwhelming), the Friends apartment (also underwhelming), Ground Zero, taking a ferry to Williamsburg, delicious Mexican food, new rings, a carrot cake doughnut (so delicious), the view from the roof and a really great coffee.

My flights to New York are booked! I have amazing friends.

I built my website. Finally.

A good, productive day where I spent a lot of time out of my chair. I felt confident and in control today.

Clean clean shower. Actually properly clean.

I Got Life. Making me feel better about the no kids decision again.

Cuddling up on the sofa with Jo and Jonny. With Jonny looking like E.T.

Out and about, discovering Oslo. Such a beautiful and quiet city. And the sky was so blue.

Playing in the snow on a botty whizzer.

An emotional gig in a church. A bar with loads of plants. General holiday lols.

Waiting for the bus in the brilliant sunshine. So lovely after weeks of grey.

Pressing the final curtain lining. Thank god! Now I can start sewing.

Voice messages from the Good Eggs. Especially Alec singing chinbone.

A proper cake sale with 50p cakes.

Laughing on the phone with Stuart. It reminded me that we do have fun. Maybe it’s not as bad as I’ve been thinking.

Pizza and beer at Jo’s, plus Jonny. That cheered me up.

Morning sex.

The whole team chatted about stupid shit like coffee and cheese. Felt like a bit of bonding.

He met my friends and it was fine!


Ate lots of vegetables.

Had nice conversations with mum, Jen and Jo. Which pulled me out of my slump.

Having wonderful Naomi to explain my feelings to, and having her be so immediately understanding. 

It’s my 30th birthday!

A cake with me and mum in vulva tshirts on, a commissioned vulva painting, a silver ring making kit, a machine embroidery workshop, the flask from Waitrose, a donkey sanctuary, creepy caves, a cream tea, Alec coming down, kareoke, games, big sparklers, a midnight walk to the drawbridge, two generous donations to Bloody Good Period in honour of me,w a drunken chat with Stuart and just all the fun birthday love and joy that I wanted!


Volunteering for the Foodbank. It was a good three hours of smiling and chatting and doing.

Going to see the space at Southbank for BOW at WOW. It’s going to be so good!

Our workshop for BOW in the evening. Lovely feminist friends, coming together to help us and give us ideas and energy and love. We came up with a great idea and I can’t wait to see it happen!


We’re going to be at WOW! I’m so excited!

Going into Liberty for the first time. That place is ridiculous.

The Good Eggs in the pub for Corinne’s return. Such a funny night. Susan, bring in the Hellman’s. 


The bright autumn leaves against the blue sky outside my window in the morning. Again.

The beautiful shadow of my windowsill plants on my wall.

Milf’s on holiday. The sexiest porn I could think of.


Lunch with Alec. He told me he asked me because I’m a good person to speak to if you’re feeling down. Which made me really happy. 

Discovering the cutesy sold in Brixton Village.

Our hilarious but unsuccessful fireworks night. Sneaking into a park, setting off three, they all skidded along the ground, almost hit a house and nearly exploded on Alec. So we ran away and went to a pub instead. We made do with giant sparklers instead. 


Another £150 for chatting to friendly Northern Irish people.

Meeting Fran.

Hanging out with Gusty and Jen. Just like old times.


Dishoom breakfast with my main man. Totally free thanks to my leaving present of dishoom coins. Egg naans and chai all round!

Surprise 30th birthday party for my oldest friend.

Spending the evening chatting with a celebrity. Who then followed me on Instagram. No big deal. 


Chats with Kim. Realising we were seeing Andy’s wife play. And that’s why Andy was there. Not a big coincidence, as I thought. 

Live music. It’s been a while.

Seeing Liv. Even if I accidentally spent a lot of that time crying.


Coffee with Jen. She was nice to me and didn’t tell me off.

Going to the WOW campaign workshop. So lovely to meet more fabulous women. And be asked for help on a project by someone who was facilitating it! Such a buzz. 

Lottie’s party. Alec’s stories, seeing Ciaran, drunk Jonny, inflexible Doug and hanging out with Will. It was a really fun night!


Found a fiver in the leaves on the way to work. Looking at my feet pays off sometimes. Oh and I spent it on a pint.

Office bingo.

Drinks with Hol. Finally being able to talk to someone about everything in person. That was good.

London. 

Dinner and rooftop drinks with Alec Han and Sarah.

Reach around mummies and other old pots


Jigsaw puzzle at lunchtime. Officially a crossword defector. It felt so good.

Texts about books.

Dinner with my oldest girls. Vietnamese, not too drunk and not the one that talked the most!


Picking up Hannah – no more solo. And someone to tell my hilarious jokes and comments to.

Our beautiful finca for the week. It’s so gorgeous!

Going for a swim and then eating bread and cheese on the sunbeds. Bliss.


Kayaking and paddle boarding on the lake. Floating peacefully in the sun until…

MUD FIGHT!

Doug’s incredible fire food. Excellent pepper.

Playing games for Corinne’s birthday. Mini Jenga, body parts and the one where I laughed too hard at ‘hole’.

Good chats and nice moments.


Alec changing into his driving shoes before setting off in the fanciest hire car I’ve ever driven.

The beautiful treehouse on the lake on the alpaca farm for Corinne’s surprise birthday.

Kayaking in the dark, sex pond in the rain and shooting stars.


Grapefruit and tonic.

Bonding with Alirra, Ming and Laura. It felt like actual good chats. 

The white shirts Vs the loud shirts. Our boys looked better.
