Canoeing up the canal towards the Lee Valley. The sun was out, it was really warm and it was all so bloody beautiful! I had such a lovely time!

Spending time with Will.

Talking about Noel’s House Party.

Beautiful sunny London. It’s so perfect when it looks like this.

Meeting a woman who organises WOW and pitching two ideas to her. She loved both of them! I’m so proud of us for pitching so well. Fingers crossed we make it into the festival. 

Buying a new bag. It was tan. I had to.

And a fourth, dinner at Jo’s with her brother and fiancé. It was really nice. Maybe a friend extension.


A giant sunflower

Going to Fulham Palace with my cousin

Food of the future! 


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. 

Getting half way through my very delayed commute, in the rain and deciding to just enjoy the walk and forget about being annoyed because it doesn’t matter. That was a good feeling.

Having all the housemates together in the living room. For possibly the first time since Christmas. Lauren bullying Mike for being a t-shirt stained mess. Ivan sneezing into Becky and pulling a muscle. I made a great cereal protest joke. 

GIF-ing with Jen and James instead of doing any kind of work whatsoever. 

Also I just loved this vagina image from @rudooles 


My homegrown,multicoloured sunny tomatoes

Buying fabric for my dresses.

Live music. It’s nice to hear live music.

London. 

Dinner and rooftop drinks with Alec Han and Sarah.

Reach around mummies and other old pots


Being all together as a family, having lunch in the garden for the last time.

Watching Ben laugh so hard retelling the new Dad’s Army film that he cried.

Coming back to Lauren. And my garden smells. Someone who can commiserate with me and a nice place to sit before the week starts again. 


Sharpened a pencil for the first time in ages. So satisfying.

Leaving work early and walking across the bridge in the sun, smirking at graffiti.

The woman next to me on the train gave me her spare Orangina. I gave her the book I finished. #trainfriends


The sky this evening. It looked like it didn’t belong in London.

My massage. Sorting out my shoulder and being clicked every which way.

Leaving work early. Even though I started late. I wanted to be in the sun and sit in my garden and read my book. So I did. 


Breakfast in Barcelona, lunch in Paris and dinner in London. Which makes my looooong train journey home sound a lot more exotic.

The photo of tired Alec and the angry looking guy behind him getting on the plane. We all did pretty well considering we had so little sleep.

Watching RuPaul in bed with Jonny. Again. 


Free haircut. With the possibility of more free haircuts. 

That stupid photo of Alec being excited by his present. It made me lol twice on the walk to the pub.

Alec’s birthday drinks. I chatted to lots of people which I don’t normally do, there was a dog and I got three hugs! Plus I walked there through sunny sunny London.

Sitting in the garden in the sun, reading nan’s diary from the year I was born. It was lovely to feel connected with that nan again. My nan.

Early evening in the park with Holly, drinking a beer and looking at the flowers. In the bloody incredible sun. I love sunny London.

Feeling excited and ready to be on my own again. Feeling happy. As just me. Nothing else.


Sunny London

Halloumi fries and sourdough bread. So bloody delicious. 

Going for a walk at lunchtime. 

All the art. None of the money. Thanks borrowed Tate Card.
Cortado. Delicious, delicious cortado.

An evening with Matt, menstruating, eating ice cream and watching a weird film. Then having some good discussions with Mike. 

The sunlight shining through the bathroom mist this morning.

Green green leaves above the buses on the Strand.

Walking through a new bit of the woods on the walk back home.


Vegan lunch plus iced coffee

Discovering new bits of Greenwich Park with Jonny. And perving at the topless men. The weather was just perfect today.

Accidentally finding Mudchute farm whilst exploring more green London. Goats, donkeys and lambs.

A hug from my boss. For running those events like a fucking boss!
Deciding to finally walk through the tiny gate into the secret park on my way home. It felt like nan was guiding me in there, to enjoy the greenery, the sunlight and the beauty. It was exactly what I needed after today.

The sun the sun the sun. 


Breakfast with Jonny.

Driving the van. With Jonny. And talking about him moving in with me. Or at least moving north.

The beautiful sunny weather. I love London in the sun. 


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.


Women chats with Holly over breakfast. Well, willy chats.

A day at WOW. As inspiring and eye opening as ever. I just love being there.

Having some time alone, in London. I really enjoy having a day off during the week. It feels really good. 

Georgie came all the way to Barnet for me.

Singing in the van, driving through new bits of London whilst the sun shone. Especially coming up over the hill and seeing Ally Pally up ahead.

Another good event. Happy people. Lovely comments. Even managed to sit down and eat some Turkish bread and hummus.

The view down the river. The lit up bridges. The shard. It still takes my breath away.

Silly work lols with Jen. Bulldog clips. Si senior.

Wine and Vietnamese with Holly. She almost cried when I explained the tattoo. She’s a babe.


The clouds, the light, the view. I’ll never tire of looking out that window.

Then the eerie orange light than made us feel like we were in some strange apocalypse film. The pollution apocalypse.

Delicious Korean food and I did it without eating meat.

Walking over the bridge and stopping to admire my beautiful city in the winter sun. Deciding to take a photo to capture the moment for the blog…

…then looking at the photo inside later on and realising my glove is in it. Like always. But it made me smile again. So I’m keeping it. 

Dinner with my home friends, at Jana’s beautiful house. 


Joining the GAP team for lunch.

Leaving work for Christmas. YAS! I love Christmas, I love walking through sunset-y London, I love going home and I love being on holiday from work. Weeeee! 

Being at home, going to a big supermarket with my parents, talking about recycling and FairTrade things. 

Me, James and Rose reading the advent calendar jokes. And them both liking my sushi joke so much they both text it to their friends.
Delicious Japanese food from Tokyo Diner. And I didn’t eat meat!

Walking through Chinatown. I still love it.


Hampstead is beautiful. Like, REALLY beautiful.

My vagina pot is really coming along. It’s so much fun!

All the sausage chat at pottery. 


Going to see my brilliant friend’s beautiful pop up shop, selling all the ethical, sustainable and genuinely beautiful things. That’s pretty much all my Christmas shopping done. (It’s called This Because and it’s on Broadwick Street, Soho. You should go.)

Wandering around And Other Stories.

Discussing knitting out your vagina with my housemates.


The trees outside my window have changed colour, seemingly overnight.

The huge Turkish meal we had exploring a new bit of London. And the very friendly staff. 

Got my necklace fixed. I love being able to wear it again.
