Drag Race final. I love watching Graham seat dance and clap. He makes my heart smile. Plus I love this suit.

Booked the cottage in Wales for January.

The donkey guys that own thebrexitparty.com. GENIUS.

Being in a good mood at work! Goodbye Car Free Day, hello not being stressed!

Reliving Japan, one year ago today. The great coffees and the incredible savoury pancake thing.

Rich roast peanut butter.

Granny. Little willies.

Watching Fred enjoy my present.

My holiday anniversary present from Han.

Walking round the Old Town, taking photos of the beautiful, crumbling buildings.

A sexy moment in MoMa

Carrefour. I love a foreign supermarket.

Home home home.

Wandering around Old Town in the not so hot heat.

The scrub and bubble massage at the sulphur baths.

Face masks and funny animal videos instead of going out

The weather being lovely so we could fly back to Tbilisi in the teeny tiny plane and see all the amazing views on the way.

Our lovely new apartment. And doing some yoga in it.

Exploring the Old Town – cable cars, Mother of Georgia, the 4th century fortress, fruity iced tea and steep cobbled roads.

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.

Day two of the hike. So damn beautiful! Wildflower meadows, butterflies and incredible views. Plus lovely weather.

Doing Oliver jumps and Sound of Music frollicking in the meadows.

Exploring the tiny old village of Adishi. Towers, run down buildings and cows.

The walk from Mestia to Zhabeshi.

The meadows, the clouds, the views, the pigs, the quick river crossing in a car, the jumping nipples. All of it.The cute guesthouse with mad shower. It has buttons for lights and even a telephone.

Finishing an expert sudoku. With minimal accidental cheating.

Piglets and cows along the road on the way up to Mestia

Our beautiful guesthouse

Views of the mountains when the sun came out and the clouds cleared briefly. I’m quite excited about tomorrow.

Another pool day

Cheering the man who stuffed all our bags into one locker

The night train. First class. Well, technically.

The tiny kittens

Doi, the beautiful dog at our guest house in Sighnaghi

The view

The lovely man who we booked our day trip with, and his mum. Both of whom fed us wine, bread and cheese. Not long after we’d just eaten a massive khachapuri. #sofull

Exploring the old town. Blue tiled houses, dusty old cracked building and so many balconies.

A long delicious lunch in the hidden courtyard.

Getting a Georgian Uber back from the cool bar. He spent most of it reversing and it only cost 68p each.

Sunbathing and swimming in the sun. Floating in my back in the warm water.

Wandering the steep cobbled streets towards the funicular railway.

The cheese egg bread thing. So good. And the huge storm that happened half way through. And then the double rainbow that happened afterwards.

Our ridiculously lovely apartment in Tbilisi. With indoor hammock swing.

Hipster brunch

Learning Georgian – Arseybobs.

Incredibly first dinner. All the cheese, mushrooms dumplings and walnut sauce.

Making him come.

Lying on my bed with the dappled sun on the pillows, sort of napping whilst waiting to leave for the airport.

Weeeee we’re off to Georgia!

Last day at work before two weeks off! There’s nothing better than bragging about holidays.

“See. We’re made for each other.”

Drinks at Shep’s, food at Mildred’s and sex at mine.

Adam getting a Drive Now car and driving me home because it was raining too damn hard.

I’m going on holiday in a few days time! Goodbye shitty rainy June weather!

Yoga in the living room. Green tea. Dark chocolate. And a whole evening of reading my book.

A walk around the park, touching trees, peeling bark and singing out loud.

My new suitcase arrived. I think I’m maybe ready for Georgia?

Finally made good humus.

Being by the sea, in a cute cabin. With a secret garden. And it’s own yoga platform.

The pub quiz. Best pub quiz I’ve ever done. Oily Muirs.

Seeing a shooting star as we walked home from the pub.

I felt so happy this evening. Really calm and peaceful, by the sea, walking in the dark.

Booking all of Georgia.

The sneeze website.

Dancing to Whitney at home alone.

Walking around Pisa on my own

The Pisa tower fail photo

Getting home and unpacking and washing

Going for a walk up the hill and seeing the baby goats, the old shepherd and run down buildings.
Yoga with Adriane outside with everyone.
Lucca. Pretty. And with an ominous yellow sky above the church.
Naked bath with the Fems. Including candles, face masks, cheese and crisps.

Wine tasting and the beautiful olive groves

The egg hunt back at the villa

Hot tubbing with the mountains in the background

The name game plus bonus behind the curtain round

That tiramisu

Ciaran: “I only lasted 2 minutes”

Cinque Terra

Climbing the big hill and looking out over the village

Plus messaging two guys at once in the evening. That was a nice boost

A day of sunbathing by the pool, diving, BBQing, playing ping pong with Han and Jonny, eating everything and yoga outside with a view of the Tuscan hills.

The dinner in the little cafe at the bottom of the hill.

Walking down the hill at sunset.

Not being at work when everyone else is at work.

Driving a nice car in Italy on quiet roads. And listening to ‘That’s Amore’ as our first car song.

The beautiful villa. The pool. The hot tub. The views.

Texting Jonny at the table.

Packing for Italy and feeling good about my clothes choices.

The incredible looking apartments in Tbilisi.

Ming sending me this, the Sheela Na Gig.

Making it to Liv’s branding workshop for WEN. I felt useful. And I didn’t feel intimidated by Katee. Quite the opposite in fact.

The smell of cigarette smoke taking me back to holidays in France with my parents, falling in love with gay men and smoking in the toilets.

Reading in bed, by the window with the newly leafy tree outside.

Cooking cooking cooking all day. I made so many new things and today!

Looking up stuff to do in Georgia. Including a stay in a fancy spa with its our aquarium?
