The second half of the sound bath. All the twinkly music.

Walking. I did all my steps after barely moving for a week.

Treating myself to a Greek lunch.

The sun’s reflection shining onto me as I meditated in the morning.

Learning about natural dying at a Zoom event. It feels so nice and gentle and lovely.

Taking myself out for a walk without my phone after a migraine nap. The air smelt nice and fresh.

So many birds singing as I meditated this morning.

Having a long cuddle with sleeping Noah and then feeding him a bottle.

Jonny putting my book pitch into InDesign for me. He’s been so helpful and I really really hope this goes somewhere.

Remembered that Jonny was so enthusiastic about my writing sample last night.

Sitting on the doorstep, listening to the birds and looking at the blue sky after my run this morning.

Had an ice cream.

The birds loudly singing during my morning meditation, when I’m listening out for them.

Walking a new way at lunchtime and discovering two beautiful new streets. With some really cool, Dutch style wooden houses.

Talking to Jo. About a shitty thing but it helped, I think.

Jana’s fabric arrived, and in such beautiful packaging!

A walk immediately after work, managing to catch the last of the daylight. And walk along the quietest parkland walk I’ve ever seen.

Yoga nidra. Instead of TV.

Got a personal best on Sudoku.

Stopping to watch the squirrel on my walk.

Deciding to be present on my walk, and not try to think too much. And the sun came flickering down through the trees.

Silly jokes with Jonny.

The birds singing as I started meditating on being calm.

The light shining through the tree outside, as the wind rustled the leaves.

Jen’s vibrating butt plug story.

The sky whilst idling

When he put his hands over my eyes and told me when to breath

Dishoom. Vegan chai. Amazing food. That dessert.

This curly wurly tree.

The Sound Bath with Soph.

Gossiping with her about the two weirdos afterwards as we waited for a train.

A bird tweeting as I meditated and the squirrel that ran and jumped up the fence on my way to work.

The clouds, again, but with a better photo today.

Creating my ‘This is your…’ series. It feels exciting to be doing something a bit different.

Birds singing as I meditated.

Squirrels hopping along fences as I walked to work.

Getting to talk to Jo about what happened with James and being able to fully shout and be annoyed and know the heavy traffic drowned me out and know that I’m right and I’m fine. Sometimes these things are better to do in person.

Also going to a lecture and hearing about menstrual huts.

Cute dog photos.
Floating in a salty pod, in the dark for an hour.
Hungarian Granny’s Favourite tea afterwards.

The squirrel hugging the flower

The view from the 27th floor

The birds singing during meditation again

Birds singing during my morning meditation.

Walking through the park in the sun, my feet bouncing on the compacted mud, looking at the autumn leaves.

A hot chocolate with Adam. Which accidentally made me too chatty.

Sending snorting pig videos to James.

Hearing birds tweeting all through my morning meditation. I haven’t heard them in a while.

The clouds.

Period Party at Colours. Much more intimate and it went really well. Having Rosie’s smiling face in the corner was so lovely too.

Swimming. In a fairly quiet pool.

The woman who lent me 20p for the locker and wouldn’t accept my 50p. And was really surprised when, after the swim, I gave her the 20p I’d found in the bottom of my bag.

Walking back through Clissold Park, with the sun breaking free every now and then, lighting up the clouds and making the trees glow. Meditating in the field, listening to the Soweto Gospel Choir.

A bath shower in the beautiful bathroom with the huge tub and the mirror wall.

A misty walk along the coast.

Church Cove. Sitting in the sheltered bit, watching the sea and the family playing. So peaceful.

Plus the incredible cream tea with the world’s best scone and the nicest possible owners in their adorable front room cafe.

And a little text from James, finally.

Getting shit done. Three documents that I was sort of dreading but were actually pretty easy.

Meditation class. My feet on the ground and relaxed breathing.

Quietly giggling with Jonny before during and after meditation. Gold nipples, the hot beardy guy and kneeling for Jesus.

The birds singing as I meditated on self love. They started right on cue, singing the love into me.

A text from Simon. I’d actually almost forgotten about him.

A successful community engagement project at St Luke’s. Friendly people, a beautiful centre and lots of people happy to see what we’re doing.

Cosy, blanket-y meditation yoga with Adriane

Dusk, with its pinky clouds and lovely light and birds singing

A recipe dinner. Broccoli cakes. I forget how good recipes are.

My rock solid tree pose in yoga. No wobbles today.

100 vulvas on the BBC.

Sex positivity and vulvas in Time Out

Plus hanging out with Jonny in the evening and hearing the birds sing during my meditation in the morning.

The bird that has started singing when I meditate in the morning.

Giggley day at work. Andrew sneaking up on me, Adam’s coffee achievement chat.

Third date with Diarmuid. Listening to old French songs at the beautiful Wilton’s Music Hall. Followed by cuddles.


Meditating to the sound of the birds outside my window

Finding a job I want to apply for. And it pays super well too! Accidentally already mentally spent the first month’s salary. 

Ironing. It’s so relaxing. Such smooth sheets. 

I decided to go for a walk around the park in the morning. And I discovered a beautiful tree. Something about it just spoke to me. I took about a hundred photos of it and sat under it for a while, leaning back on the trunk and having a little chat. The sun was warm and it was quiet and beautiful. It felt so good to be out in the gorgeous blue-skied day.

I took a few of the leaves to do some printing with. They look pretty beautiful too.

A day of boring photos from Stuart in Bath. It made me smile. 


The sun, the birds, meditation. General happiness. I feel like the happiness could just burst out of my chest today.

You Can Call Me Al on the tube. Remembering Al’s wedding.

Conference giggles. The adorable old lady, stroke poo, texting Jen. And Joff. And Danny.

The pop up message from Michael.
The sound bath. The sounds falling on me and washing over me.
Touching Josie Long.

The birds, the heat, the feeling of being on holiday. A really lovely surprise meditation.
A hug from James.

WoW festival press night. I’m so excited for WoW festival. I can’t believe I’ve still never been. This is the year.
Crumpets for elevensies. I love crumpets!
