The chihuahua with the tiny head and big lab body. And friends that send silly photos to cheer me up.

Having lunch on my own. Eating my bento lunchbox, wearing my silver top and reading.

Cooking and baking. Banana pancakes, oaty banana biscuits and broccoli cakes.

Wearing my new dungarees to work. I love wearing them!

First lying on my back lunch in the park of the year.

Chatting crap dating profiles with my old friends.

Organic fairtrade bananas without the plastic bag! Dilemma over.

I finished my dungarees!

Two half pints in the pub with Jonny after swerving on the busy new bar opening.

A free bunch of asparagus. So of course I immediately ate an entire bunch.

Starting my dungarees

Evening with my old mates. Didn’t leave feeling sad or embarrassed and regretting anything. I’m in a much happier place.

The ladybird that hitched a ride on my skirt

Walking through the park

Making my own hummus

Free Love Bar for using my Monzo card. Not because I was extra polite to the guy like I thought…

The sun felt genuinely warm on my face when I wasn’t in the wind. I feel so excited for Spring.

Showing off my skirt to an impressed Sarah via a dirty mirror working toilet selfie

The sky on the way to work. Hello clear sky.

My ring that I made has arrived! So shiny.

The penis apple.

Trying out the new vibrator. Woke up early because I was so excited to try it.

Drag Race Holi-Slay. I mean, too much. But funny.

Cooked quinoa for the first time. Smashed it.

A queer fayre with my first mulled wine of the season.

Jam with silver bits in. Hello glittery poo!

Carving a ring.

Accidentally taking a sneaky photo of a colleague with the flash on. Thank god she didn’t notice.

The sun came out at lunch again. Another sunbathing-in-the-park lunchtime.

Making four pairs of pants in the beautiful studio.

Making a collar with Will. It’s fun to have something to make.

Lying in the park, reading and watching the clouds.

Discovering the extractor fan switch! Please god let it sort out the damp.

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.
