I made some cute as bibs for my nephew. He’s going to look the shit.

Parcels started arriving with things for our new flat. Hello new toilet brush.

Vaaaaaangie. Can’t stop saying it. Can’t stop watching it.

Going for a walk around the park in the sun at lunchtime.

Spending a lot of the day chatting to Adam and Libby. No managers, no ‘adults’.

Coming home and sewing. Finally. I’ve been wanting to do it for days.

The beautiful sky on the walk to work this morning.

New Muji stationery. Whoops. Couldn’t help myself.

Pressing the curtains seams in the living room and hanging out with housemates.

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. 


Went to the gym and did more than I’ve been doing. Followed by the sauna. Felt pretty smug about that.

Finally finished my application and then managed to smash out another one. Very smug about that.

A bit of crafting in the evening. Vagina Christmas cards and homemade envelopes.

Christmas songs, hot chocolate and crafting with Sarah.

We made wreaths!

Dinner at Stuart’s. 

Kicking through the bright yellow leaves on the pavement.

The whole wood working day. The bright blue sky, being outside, the fire, making a bowl, the feminist chat at lunchtime, the end result. It was brilliant.

Smelling like wood smoke


New toaster. She’s a beauty.

Making envelopes. It’s nice to be crafty.

A fun first date. 


The smell of the autumn leaves.

I sewed a bib for my friends new baby. I haven’t sewn in a while so that was really nice.

A massage from Joy.

And watching Blue Planet II with the housemates. 


I grew these! And I ate them for dinner.

I made a dress. 

An evening with Bivan, playing guitar and singing, watching Back. 


Cool egg patterns

A day of doing. Made a dress, mowed the lawn, planted a tree.

Discovered we can watch catch up TV on our TV. Watched Eden with Bivan whilst eating too many nachos.


Walking to the pond in the sun. The butterfly that almost brushed my face. The almost fearless squirrels playing in the secret part of the park that I hadn’t discovered before.
Sewing a dress. Sort of no mistakes.

Turkish and two walks in the park with Jonny. A minthy drink and a hunt for an ice cream in the Tesco’s I’ve not been in before.

Plus some chats with Lauren in the living room and seeing the solar fairy lights all lit up in the garden. 


Crouch End Broadway. It’s like a little village or rural town. So adorable. 

Going through some woods… FOR WORK. I touched dogs!

Sewing. I forgot how much I love you.


Realising I’m good at chatting to people. Like Ben.

Chatting to Will. Bit weird but still nice.

Peanut butter in dhal. 

Leaving work when it’s so late for a second day in a row. 

And I have tomorrow off! First day in 11 days. I can’t wait!

Home baked gooey biscuits, just out the oven.

Did a bit more carving on my bowl. It’s smoother now. And I finally got to use a curved knife.

Set up OKCupid. And currently don’t feel bad about any of it.

Made a great soup. Yes to Sunday cooking.  


The green wood bowl workshop. I made a bowl from a chunk of log using an axe, an adze, a chisel and a knife. It was amazing! And such hard work. But I did it. 

Doing it with Jim. I love him. What an amazing friend to have had for 25 years. He’s one of the most caring and supportive men I know. I’m so lucky.

Watching Happy.

I got some of my pottery back today. They look so good! I’m so proud of myself! Plus I got to see the kiln which was cool.
A phone chat with mum and then, later, a phone chat with dad.

Remembering when I made a cake for Steve’s birthday and accidentally wrote Happy birthday Seve! 🙈


Had a go on the wheel in pottery this evening. So much fun!

Being pleasantly surprised by people. Pauline outdid my clay vagina with her vagina cast.

New face cleaning.

Dad got the job!
I whittled a spatula.
Yes Bitch. K Rizz.

The lovely volunteer that baked a cake and bought it in, still warm, for us to snack on as we painted the hub. Plus tea and fresh coffee.
Joking around with the builders. They are really nice guys.
White walls at work. It looks so much better. We got a lot done today.

Finally feeling like I’m getting through my to do list at work.
My homemade Bircher muesli. It was actually nice!
Winning Shithead four times in a row.

Seeing my brother’s ridiculously awesome new house.
Eating our BBQ dinner off the table he and W made in the afternoon.
Smelling the beautiful fresh air out the window of my old room in my parents house.

These penguins.
Someone bought another one of my oven mitts. So proud.
Going out as a flat for some drinks and some singing in the car.

Homemade apple crumble.
Whizzing through the market super fast.
Getting lots of van stuff done. We’re getting there!

I got a pair of jeans for $18. That’s £9! It was an accident but a happy one. For me anyway!
Clothes smelling off fabric softener. I just kept sniffing myself all day.
Homemade iced lemon tea.

I finished my T-shirt. And it looks so professional! I love the double stitching.
Silly jokes with my boyfriend and loud laughing.
Family Guy.

Homemade apple compot with some cream.
Making flat bread from scratch for dinner alongside my lentil and spinach soup. A whole day of baking and cooking. I made a honey and almond cake too.
His face in the morning. He looked young and sleepy and it reminded me of when we first got together.

My boyfriend’s Christmas present arrived and it looks like it will fit him.

Got a lot of work done and felt much less stressed.

Made another cork bowl. This time for a friend for Christmas. Another one ticked off the list and no money spent. Boom.
