I made so many bowls today.

Editing my vulva booklet. I’m so excited for it!

Having a weekday off. It feels so much more relaxing.

Friends again with Tash.

A friend date that turned into a date date.

A new bowl in 26 minutes.

Finished the wall hangings and bags.

Did some yoga.

Coconut oil, a mirror and two toys.

The dress. It took forever and I fucked it up so many times but I love it.

WATERMELON.

Jen and Fiona came round and it was nice and I cooked nice food and I was fairly relaxed.

The pound shop man sawing the bamboo up for me and giving it to me at a discount.

A nice first date with Tess. She was so chatty and lovely.

Trying a new stitch.

Gary and Alison for volunteer day. Plus getting to pull out grass.

Making a little pair of shorts for Noah.

Tasty aubergine. Finally cooked it.

Took myself for a coffee in the sun.

Finished my dress.

And read a book in the sun.

Waking up and seeing my new wall hanging. And Sally seemed genuinely impressed.

A morning outside repotting plants, planting out garlic and sweeping.

Leaving therapy feeling lighter than I went in.

Spending the afternoon sewing and listening to podcasts.

Finally putting up some artwork that’s been hidden away for ages and properly cleaning and tidying the flat. It looks so nice.

Three orgasms before breakfast.

Finished the basket.

Recognising leaves on my little walk.

A quick reel.

Tackling a hard topic in therapy and being glad I did it.

Deciding to make proper pancakes for dinner.

Seeing Sam’s niece wearing my dragon tail for St David’s Day.

Doing buttonholes!

Bubbles from the washing up bottle.

I made a new dress!

I made two pairs of dungarees.

Photos of sad cats from Tash’s cat book.

More Below Deck.

Sewing dungarees again. Mama and daughter ones too.

Lying in the shade in the park with Jo.

Hackney gelatto. From Weezy.

Silversmithed a ring!

Solo momo’s.

Fancy gelatto, made infront of me and eaten in the park.

Giving Jo the trousers I made her and seeing how happy she was with them.

Started writing more for the book.

Reading Motherhood and napping on the sofa

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
