Putting a deposit down on a flat. A nice flat!

An evening with Jonny, planning the new house.

Stuart telling me he misses me.


Clean clean shower. Actually properly clean.

I Got Life. Making me feel better about the no kids decision again.

Cuddling up on the sofa with Jo and Jonny. With Jonny looking like E.T.

A free, proper iced tea at a fun meeting.

I bought a mooncup. This is it. It’s going to happen.

Being in the pub with Jonny. I’ve missed him.

Snowy walking today. It got a bit too snowy at some points but it was lovely.

I did it! I won us £2,000 funding for BOW! I can’t believe it! So pleased!

Seeing Jonny this evening. It’s been ages and it was so nice to see him.

I’ve been invited to pitch for a £5k grant!

Writing up BOW stuff and calming myself down after a frenzied afternoon.

Half a pub quiz with Jonny in the quiet pub.

A proper cake sale with 50p cakes.

Laughing on the phone with Stuart. It reminded me that we do have fun. Maybe it’s not as bad as I’ve been thinking.

Pizza and beer at Jo’s, plus Jonny. That cheered me up.

Being out and about rather than in the office. Especially when it stopped raining.

New insoles. It’s like walking on jelly! It’s so comfy.

Petek with Jonny. Free dessert again. They love us. And new flat chat.

Finally going into the fabric shop. It’s got some utterly beautiful material in. Can’t believe I haven’t been before.

Discovering a beautiful flat that we can afford. And we’re visiting it tomorrow!

Drinks with Jonny. Planning our new lives in the flat!

Working on BOW. Getting the manifesto done and feeling happy with doing something and shaking off the low mood. It’s nice to get compliments about your writing too.

A night with Jonny, eating at Rasa and talking about moving in together. Plus he gave me my birthday present. Hello perfect Muji mugs! 😍

Stuart phoning me during Matilda by Alt-j live in Madrid.

The quiet pub, where the barman recognises me. I think.

Accidental Rowan’s for New Year’s Eve. Complete with a Mario Kart, basketball, dancing, air hockey and pool.

Going for cheesy food and then deciding to go back into another pub for a gin. And a chat with a Spanish man that couldn’t speak English. 

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!

Waking up next to him and the stupid morning conversations that you have.

Chicken and bacon.

An afternoon/evening with Jo and Jonny in various combinations and with various drinks. The walk with Jonny, the sexual awakening talk with Jo. The pub with the two of them. The generosity of my friends. Today has been a really lovely day.

Sticking it out and meeting Kieran to hear about the waste management work. Not what I want, but interesting. And a good chance to feel like I’m good at something.

Lino printing vagina Christmas cards.

A classic date night with Jonny. Too much alcohol, some penis chat and Peteks. Perfect. 

Waking up to funny stories with my cousin.

Matilda was at our house again! Lots of strokes.

Going for a walk around the park as the sun set and the hangover slightly receded. 

Remembering when Jonny and I were Mr and Mrs Bones. We made great incredible skeletons.

A goodbye dinner with Hol. Such a lovely evening. I’m really going to miss her. But she said some lovely things this evening that made me feel so good. I really feel like I can do this. I can achieve these things and I make this work. I have the skills. I just need to do it.

The food at Som Saa. Oh my god, so delicious. When that fish came out I almost died. 

Walking around Soho with Jonny, planning what we’ll do and where we’ll live when we’re rich.

Wearing my new charity shop shirt.

Jonny saying he would move in with me. Yay, he’s not planning on leaving!

First day at my new freelancing job. Making time capsules with recycling materials. FUN! Basically being paid to chat to kids, cut up paper and occasionally pick up bits of cardboard.

Probably got paid more today than I’ve ever been paid in one day before.

Jonny’s giant sharpie penis.

My amazing charity shop haul. I got some great clothes for hardly any money at all! New trousers for £2 and a lovely man’s woollen jumper for £2 too. Yes please.

An evening with my boo, Jonny. I haven’t seen him for ages. So we went to Petek. Obvs. 

Jen gossip and a Britney-esque photo. What a plum.

ay one of the Influencing Change course. It was so exciting to feel excited about it all again. And to distill my ideas down into something more focused.

Talking to Joy about the project. And all the other people that came up to me to talk about vaginas. It was a subject that so many people wanted to talk about. It was a real boost. 

Beers with Jonny, making me see the good in the day again. 

Yak and Yeti takeaway and RuPaul in bed.

All the foxes on the way home. One was like ‘yeah, and what’. So ballsy. 

Perving on hot men trying on great suits in M&S

Going to the V&A with Jonny and looking at all the amazing ceramics. And seeing the new entrance. So beautiful and peaceful. Well done London.

Baking some cookies. It was nice to bake. It always reminds me of mum. Plus they were delicious.

Watching TV all evening with Jonny. Especially the final Educating Yorkshire with Musharaf overcoming his stammer. I cried. 

Spending the day with Naomi, chatting about all things feminist, life and work.

The Rachael Whiteread exhibition at Tate Britain. And talking it through with Naomi as we walked round. I never do that.

A few hours with Jonny in the evening but not drinking. Then going to bed at 10.

A moment of normality walking with Jonny to Jo’s new flat.

Rewatching Grace and Frankie.

Checking out the farmers market. It was a bit crap but it was nice to go to. 

Getting an apology and getting my TOIL.

Beers and pizza with Jonny.

An evening slightly drunk shower. Warm soft feet and sweet smelling skin in bed afterwards.

Not caring at work. This is probably going to be an unproductive four weeks…

Smiling all the way to Soho.

Sweaty ping pong, dancing and racing with Jonny.

The beautiful Weir Gardens. The river, the wooden play park, the drying onions, the walled garden.

Dinner and half pints with Jonny. Even though he made me nearly cry.
Coming home and sitting by the fire in the garden with my housemates. And then playing Rag on the Wire. Excellent new game.

It’s not rocket séance.

A night with Jonny. Talking about something I’ve wanted to talk about for weeks and all the lols. I’ve missed him. He makes me laugh so much.

Going to a lesbian bar to end the night. On a Tuesday evening. And being checked out by a couple of hot women. Excellent Tuesday night!

Ovary embroidery workshop! Nice to spend a day with a needle in my hand.

Fresh hot roti at lunch.

Pizza and beer with Jonny. The perfect thing to get me off to sleep early ready for my 4am start tomorrow. 

Tony’s leaving party. Cheese, clotted cream and James’ brilliant quiz.

Flesh light chats with Alec and Jonny.

Someone is getting a tattoo of my vagina design. So weird but so cool. 

Breakfast on my own at Blighty, reading in the corner and making slow day plans.

Tackling the weeds at the back of the garden. They all came out and I tried to save as many snails as I could. We have a lot of snails. 

Jonny came over. We walked to the beautiful park, played cards at the pub, had noodles and watched SatC. Then he rescued a gigantic moth from my room before bed. #besties
