Japan flights are booked!

A couple of posters for the competition. Thank god.

New pub with Jonny. I’m glad we go out still. And play dominoes

New York Public Library, Grand Central Station, finally finding a pretzel, the beautiful hotel bar full of plants, yoga and the crazy yogi, navigating the subway on my own, the beautiful Muji, the brilliant celebrity cookies and a pizza slice.

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.

A bagel. Walking over the Brooklyn bridge. The sunny day. Cheesecake with Helen. Discovering Brooklyn. Listening to the voice messages we sent Stuart. Black coconut ash ice-cream and condensed milk. The huge ubers. The feminist shop.

Day one in New York. The Highline, getting into the Whitney and the Guggenheim for free, walking through central park, meeting amazing dogs, cheesecake, seeing lots of American things and going on the subway for the first time. With Holly hustling us on and then immediately off, saying ‘was there a shit in there?!’

Staying up till 5am by mistake, sending Stuart lots of voice messages and talking about sex for an hour in the bathroom before bed.

Wearing a plastic bib and gloves to eat boil in the bag shellfish for dinner.

Emails went down. So we went to buy biscuits instead.

Jana managed to upgrade our seats to the ones with extra legroom and made absolutely sure that there are no babies in the vacinity. What a travel partner!

I’m in New York!

Bodiam castle. Kissing in the ruins.

Singing along to Noah and the Whale in the car.

Launching my website.

Throwing stones at other stones on the beach.

The photos from the pier.

Recreating Sam and Ming’s photos.

The funicular railway.

Willy Wonka making an appearance in the 1066 castle video.

Telling the poo smear story in the pub.

A walk around the lake, with heaps of dogs (including one wearing a waterproof jacket) and the sun and cuddles and sits on benches. It was so lovely.

Tapa Tapas. Delicious food. Nice chats.

Going to the pub after and watching boxing and chatting to three random guys.

Plus running away from waves, nice showers, great parallel parking.

Holiday! Our first holiday together. It started off really well. The place is pretty even though it’s been a bit of a shambles. But we handled it together. It’s been really fun!

Driving. I love driving. Especially in the countryside.

Poo conversations. It felt like a big step.

Walking around in the sun, changing pollution tubes. And walking past our new road, the vaginal canal.

Talking to Adam about NYC. He looked so excited and he’s not even going.

Going to the pub with Jonny after work. “I get a boner every time I think about those shelves.”

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.

A final walk through the gentle snowfall and the big piles of snow. Bye Oslo, you’ve been fabulous.

Getting my pitch written at the airport. I feel a lot happier now that I’ve done that.

Getting home and Stuart coming over for food and cuddles. It was lovely to sleep next to him. For a change!

A delicious French bread breakfast full of fruit, thanks to Alec.

A lovely calming art gallery. With some amazing huge lead books.

The male choir singing in the sauna. Also the sauna. And jumping in the bucket of ice water. Twice.

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.

Delicious mini truffle things at the walking conference. I had a lot.

OSLO!

Snow snow snow snow.


Getting switched to the suite with the piano, the double sinks, the bidet, the swivelling TV and the huge bath. 
Wandering around Berlin, not needing to think about anything because Ciaran just took care of it all for us.

Beers, pizza, chips, chats, Cards Against Humanity and meatus talk. A really fun night out in Berlin. Coming home to play the piano at 3am.


Made it to the gym! 

The softest jumper ever. EVER.

Gutentag Berlin! And gutentag cool hotel with a DJ and vagina carpet! Drinking beer on the street and eating chips is also much appreciated.

Having Stuart round, planning our cottage getaway. 

I made a ridiculously delicious dinner. I’m so proud of it. Squash, leek and spinach gratin.

Finally getting round to writing the rules for BOW. Felt good to get something achieved. 

Listening to Touch by Little Mix on the train. It puts me in such a good mood!

Reunited with Han, Jonny and Jo!

The beautiful little cottage for my birthday. Within 10 minutes of being inside, the fire was going, the PJ’s were on, the snacks were open and the beers were started. It was perfect!


Wearing my new DMs out and about. I love this look.

The family deciding that, despite us all agreeing to split the money if we won, that I should get the £20 from the Christmas scratch card. 

Yay, Stuart agreed to go on holiday. And soon! Hello cute cottage with a fireplace.


A walk in the woods. With the sun shining and on the look out for deer.

Waitrose bread and Président butter for an in car picnic lunch before the train back to London.

Hot cross buns. 


Our beautiful cottage for the weekend. A weekend away from my house, in the countryside and with nothing much to do except read, relax and eat.

A little walk along the water as the sun set, followed by a little explore in the an old small church.

A delicious pie and mash, in my tracky bottoms and big socks, on the sofa. Let the relaxing weekend begin.


The half a slice of cake with a cup of tea after lunch. That was nice.
Staying home. Rather than making myself go in. That was the right decision.

Booking a weekend away. This weekend. I need a break. 


Coming home to discover one of my sunflowers is now ENORMOUS!

Watching the slow mo video of us jumping into the pool again. And still laughing.

Doing some gardening. It felt good to be back out there, pulling up weeds and cutting the lawn.


A day in the sun.

My brown tummy

Seeing shooting stars with Sarah


Slow mo videos, jumping into the water.

Laughing in the pool with Sarah

Dinner on the castle rooftop. Beautiful, delicious, drunk. Spoke French with the Spanish taxi driver. Laughed a lot. 

And the gecko in the pool.


Beautiful Ronda. Big bridges, great views and reading in parks.

Singing Taylor and Justin together as we drove back to the finca. Happy women vibes.

Ping pong spaff. 


Lying in the sun with my boobs out. 

Not getting burnt.

Getting completely lost in my book.

A day by the pool. This beautiful pool.

Jumping in photos.

Beers, cards, feminist chats.
