Jen. Lovely Jen. And her genital warts.

Reading in the pub before she arrived, with a wanky kombucha and barely anyone else around.

“Hole stapler”

The chihuahua with the tiny head and big lab body. And friends that send silly photos to cheer me up.

Having lunch on my own. Eating my bento lunchbox, wearing my silver top and reading.

Cooking and baking. Banana pancakes, oaty banana biscuits and broccoli cakes.

Walking along the River Lee, spotting two herons and eating blackberries.

My Vulva Gallery book arrived. It’s wonderful.

Dinner with Jonny and Dom, talking about drinking wee and living in caves.

Day three. Still so beautiful. The glacier, the meadows, the bright blue sky. The thousands upon thousands of butterflies.

Crossing the river by horse.

Nice guesthouse buddies! The Scottish couple and the Irish and Chinese couple.

Leorgie wedding with all the Eggs:

Doing a reading, and then being told all evening how great it was!

Wearing glittery socks

Their adorable speeches

Seeing them so happy together and watching their first dance

A hug

Walking in the woodsLols with some of the eggsFleabag. When she drops the award. When she stands up in the Quaker meeting.

After work drinks. I thought it might be shit but actually it was lovely. Chatted to Roger and Melissa and didn’t drink anything at all.

Fancy dinner to celebrate the wedding. Delicious delicious food. Totally worth not being vegan for.

The muscavado tart. Oh my god. So light.

Did the crow in yoga for the longest I’ve ever done it (still not long but still)

I was on TV. Talking about being raped. And my friends were just the loveliest about it all.

Just walking around, in the sun, at lunchtime feeling badass in my denim jacket.

The morning smoothie from Roger.

Saying nice things to my friends.

Texts. Finally. I know I shouldn’t be so dependant on it but that feels like a legit excuse and it feels like the date actually will happen tomorrow.

Scrambled tofu on toast for breakfast. With tomatoes and kale.

Vietnamese aubergine hotpot.

Dinner at Ed and Laura’s. Plus Laura’s brother. Who doesn’t eat fruit.

(Plus my new bag and print)

Lying on the grass at lunch time, wearing a jumper and jeans but still feeling the sun warm on my face.

Made a delicious dinner for friends and didn’t get stressed about it.

Watching the sunbathing blackbird at lunchtime. And discovering that that is what she was doing.

Good Eggs stupid photos. Mainly of Alec. Really made me laugh.

Finishing the day with a phone call from Eric, who wants to help me get more street art in the borough. I like it when people want to help you.

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!

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!
