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!
