Made a new jumper.

Walked back through Gillespie Park.

A lie in. Until 10.30!

Everything I wore today, except my socks, I made myself.

Deciding to walk through Gillespie Park.

Seeing Jo breastfeed. And looking happier.

I tried Jo’s breast milk.

Made a bra.

Noah’s little farts.

Shopping when it’s quiet in the morning. I was able to stare at the cereals for aaaaages with no one walking past or making me feel like I need to hurry.

Sewing all day, mostly by memory. More jeans and another jumper.

Another HelloFresh meal. I love lemony minty things. I need to use those flavours more.

Finally posting Fred’s Dino tail. I can’t wait for him to see it.

Sewing a little frog onto a pocket for his matching trousers.

This passage in the Spinster book.

Making the dinosaur tail for Fred.

A big veggie pasta bake.

Chatting to Sarah and hearing her sound normal again. Also hearing little Aster noises.

Sarah’s reaction to the soft sleep suit I made for her baby.

Watching the video of Fred opening the things I made him. He really liked them!

Coming up with a book idea that might actually work. And even Jonny thought it was good!

I finished the jumper, with a little alteration that I’m quite proud of.

The rainbow out the window as I sewed.

The banana and peanut butter smoothie.

Happily sewed a pair of pyjamas, making them nice because I wanted to. And just knowing how to do it.

Seeing Jo for a dusk walk to Boots.

Dipping Yorkshire puddings into a mug of almost-gravy.

I went for a bloody run this morning whilst the sky was pink!

Getting everyone to send me GIFs about how they’re feeling. I’m feeling really happy today!

Sewing up the pouches. Only finished a few but they look good.

Walking around the reservoirs.

Sewing the vulva pouches.

The smell of wood chips and fresh air.

A really fun birthday brunch for Jo. Featuring breast milk chat and olive oil.

I got home in time to buy zips….

To make my first vulva pouch!

Seemed to spend the day buying things – elastic, photo frames, desk chairs and then lots of soft fluffy fabric for kids clothes.

… Which I then turned into a dinosaur jumper for Fred.

Getting an answer right on University Challenge. It was about female comedians. Of course I knew.

Seeing Jana and Rosie in the park. Especially when Jana told her story about her anesthestic. ‘When’s this guy coming out?’

Loling with Charlie in the car on the way home.

Spending the morning sewing vulvas instead of working

Finishing my trousers and making little dungas for Coop.

Going for a walk through the trees along the parkland path. No music, no podcast, just me and my thoughts. And I was kind to myself this time.

Buying another plastic box to sort my vulva making stuff into. I like organisation.

Now I have the internet in my room I can sew vulvas on my bed when it gets too hot upstairs, and still be ‘working’ on my laptop.

The dungarees I made for people arrived today and they got lots of love.

Chatting to dad as I walked to Londis in the sun. Feeling brighter and happier today.

Some really lovely messages from women on Instagram who said I’ve made a difference to how they are their vulvas.

Sewing Sophie’s dungarees really quickly.

Benoit’s flower shame.

Some work, some reading, some chatting with my brother about our eco centre plan.

I made trousers.

My yellow wallet arrived from Ming.

Han sent a little care package.

(also TikTok)

Making a new thing. Sewing a stripy jumper from stretchy fabric.

Walking up to Highgate Woods and seeing all the trees and light and leaves. Two hours of walking. I really needed it.

Seeing Eileen loving Zoom.

Buying a fan and putting it together.

Seeing my mum in the dungarees I made for her.

A nap under the blanket, by the window, with the sunlight peaking through the leaves.

Making my new rusty coloured linen dungarees.

Finally getting back to the Parkland Walk.

Hearing Grandma and Granddad’s story by all of us on Zoom.

Aaaaand a conversation about orgasms with Sean on the phone before bed.

Embroidery. For the quarentine quilt.

Seeing my adorable little nephew and sis in my dungarees. They look great!

The video intro that Georgie made for the Eggs quiz m

Three pairs of toddler dungarees. Very adorable.

The parkland walk. Again. And this time taking my old sewing machine to give to a pal. It felt so nice to be back outside in the sun and the greenery.

A healthy dinner that felt different and was something I’d made. I know I make all my food but this felt more made.

Snacks for the holiday.

She said yes to a date!

Realising I had the energy so I edited my dungarees for hopefully the last time.

I made my dungarees fit.

I did a beautiful screen print.

I had a really funny evening celebrating my birthday at Bonningtons with the London Eggs.

The adorable tiny dungarees that I’m making for Fred for Christmas.
James text me. And so did Will. A nice message, thanking me for helping him become a better person during our relationship.
Grumpy face photos from Jo.

Selling loads more vulvas.

Making origami ninja star advent calendars. The colours are lovely and it’s nice to do nice things for other people.

Getting a super lovely message from a woman about my page and how it’s helped educate her. So nice to hear.

Setting up an Etsy shop and selling 6 out of 9 items within the first hour.

Face timing Jen.

Walking through London, crossing the river, bossing the meeting and talking about pink hippo milk.

Autumn leaves. So bright and colourful.

Walking through the park on the way home. Smelling the nature smells, looking into the pond and feeling quiet.
