Cutting out the pieces for Jana’s pregnancy dungarees. Feels nice to be sewing again.

Listening to Jo trying to retell the story of when Jonny got so high he cut himself out of his shoes. Her laughter makes me laugh so much.

Getting out the house for a walk, even though it was a bit rainy still. I’m enjoying a different season on the parkland walk.

Learning how to make a block pattern to my measurements.

Spending the afternoon (and evening) doing the illustrations for the booklet.

Got a letter asking me to book my colposcopy. Which is great. Because I thought it might be postponed due to covid.

Learning how to make big Japanese pancakes with the Eggs.

Jen coming to meet me on the way home for a 10 minute chat. That was nice of her.

Looking good in my new jumper.

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.

Winning the boob cast that I’m obsessed with!

Waking up to cuddles.

Making a sleepsuit for Jo’s baby.

Our first takeaway for a month. Delicious Nepalese food.

Being inside as the rain fell so heavily.

Making my dungarees. I feel so so proud of myself and I just love that feeling of wearing something out the front door that literally didn’t exist that morning.

Yoga with Adriene before bed.

Roast parsnips, again. Can’t stop, won’t stop.

Tidying and organising. Finally got a spice rack (of sorts), my cupboard looks so neat and tidy and I have things in neat boxes everywhere you look.

Packing my bag for tomorrow’s run (slow jog) to work. I’m really quite excited!

Deciding to cancel the social plans for today and stay in to do the above.

(This is lots more than three but I was happy a lot today and I want to celebrate that)

Bright yellow leaves. With little dogs sniffing around in them.

Yellow pillowcases, being dyed in my sink.

Pillows of cut offs and bits of felt from the vulvas. A mini (slow) production line.

The happy squirrel on the scaffolding this morning.Got to complete the butterfly trail stickers. You know, just to make sure it worked…Making a curry from scratch. Something warming and delicious for this cold day.

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…

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.
