Boules with the greenspace team.

A much more successful Insta post. Finally.

A new coat pattern. And it’s zero waste.

Cleaning the work kitchen and starting to chuck things away out the back.

Sewing some more coasters.

Hanging my dried flowers on the wall.

The big courgette from the Spanish woman.

Doing crafts with kids and making butterflies on sticks.

Coming home rather than going on a date. Watching tiktoks in my pants and washing my dresses.

The moon is slow low and bright and beautiful.

Lunch with Jo and Adam. Plus seeing Adam first for the goss.

Weaving after work and seeing how much I’ve improved in a few rows.

Long belly flat cat.

New trousers. Balloon shaped. And the denim seems to be the perfect weight for the pattern too.

Bright blue sky.

Fleabag with Tash.

Make a pair of trousers from a new pattern. Undid the mistakes. Altered the legs.

Watermelon.

Face mask.

Seeing Jonny down in South London and it being a really nice afternoon together.

Arriving back in time to buy fabric for my new trousers.

James came over for sex and cuddles. And he bought grapes.

Spending the day mainly making lanterns.

A first date with Linus.

Doing buttonholes!

Bubbles from the washing up bottle.

I made a new dress!

Having the day off! Sewing – making my cool t-shirt stain-less again and trialling a skirt pattern for Jo. Buying plastic boxes to organise my craft stuff.

The sunset.

Getting my illustrated vulva!

Sewing again. Four little pairs of dungarees.

Cleaning the stairs, cutting back the hedge and sorting out the recycling bins.

A big creamy daal. With sweetcorn. And two sausages. 🤦‍♀️

Sitting leaning against the tree in the park in the sun.

Speaking to Jen and Fiona and realising I was waiting for them to tell me to take the job. So I will.

Sewing Bee. And Patrick losing his shit over the pussy dress.

Making dumplings from the kit Sean sent me.

Making vulva hearts and listening to Women’s Hour.

Making unicorn headbands.

Poundland. I didn’t realise it was open!

Watching the live band on the bench in Highbury Fields. Really fun and reminded me what London is actually like.

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.

Jonny doesn’t have covid.

Vegan pigs in blankets. Post bath.

Painting my clay things with glue.

Also it was such a sunny day.

Finished Fred’s adorable penguin jumper.

Meet Sean for lunch and even though it was absolutely pissing it down, I felt much better afterwards. AND I saw a broccoli growing in the park on my way home!

Making some clay mushrooms for Sean. Not sure they turned out that great but it was fun to try something new.

Finished dad’s present.

Started making an adorable penguin jumper for Fred.

Old friend chat on Zoom. Surprisingly fun!

Starting the cute little finger puppets for Fred.

Chatting to the guy in the hardware shop about magnets and velcro for ages.

Did some sewing – finished Ciaran’s felt breakfast, made some more bags and masks and started Han’s bag.

Made some masks and put some vulva artwork together.

Did two lots of yoga.

Spoke to Ailsa about my gynae problems.

I took myself out for a walk along the Parkland Walk to make sure I moved and breathed.

The branding call with Liv and Oddbox. It helped make me feel more creative again.

Deciding to not do work in the afternoon and put together a pattern for a top I want to make.

Making a new thing. Sewing a stripy jumper from stretchy fabric.

Walking up to Highgate Woods and seeing all the trees and light and leaves. Two hours of walking. I really needed it.

Seeing Eileen loving Zoom.

Yesterday I gave the kids across the street a bag of my old scraps of material. Today they sent me photos of the things they’ve made, including an old dress remade into a new dress for one of the little ones.

Working with Gerry. He’s funny. And sweet too.

Finishing two more pairs of dungaeees after work.

I made a boob pot. And I added my freckles and moles.

Walking past the beautiful homes in Hornsey, as the sun shone.

Baking and cooking. A nut loaf and some biscuits. It’s nice to have a Sunday afternoon alone in the flat and to finally feel like I’m cooking someone good again.

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)
