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. 


Bonding with Jen and Lizzie. 
Walking through China Town and Piccadilly circus. I forget how exciting London can be when you stop trying to force your way through the crowds.

Delicious ramen from Ippudo with Holly and Sal. 


Walking with Hannah. Canals, parks, trees, scones.

Beautiful autumn leaves.

Wiseman. 


Going to the Tate. Watching the construction guys descend from the roof. The beautiful new galleries. Stepping into the cubes. Being alone in the room with the lights. Writing with a coffee. The views from the top floor. The wonky sculptures. The bubbling tubes. Lying in the cage. The beautiful concrete staircases.

Drawing birds and listening to guilty feminists.

Jonny, beers in the pub, a brilliant tart, jam tarts that burnt our mouths, cigarettes, GBBO in bed and gay chat. A brilliant Wednesday night. 


First time at Maltby St Market. So lovely.

Amazing coffee. Made me realise how bad other coffees have been recently.

The beautiful warm sunshine, walking back home through central London.

The White Cube gallery in Bermondsey. God that gallery is beautiful.

Plus the art work was really cool.

Walking along the river with Jonny. All the way from Greenwich to London Bridge.


An evening in the park and along the canal with Jonny. And ice cream.

AAAALL the babes in Victoria Park

E.M Cocks


A day trip to Battle with Jonny. Where we meet Dazzle.

Walking through sunny London.

A slow wander around Boots on my own. 


Being back at LCR

Going to the volunteer women’s group, chatting to new people and making music in the sun

An sunny afternoon walking with Rachel and Smokey.
