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.

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!

A meditation moment. I’ll get there.
The walk that I wanted suddenly appeared for me. A much nicer start to the morning.
A slow walk and a nice chat with a good friend.

When the bus comes over Waterloo Bridge in the morning and the sun shines right in. I still love the view down the river to Big Ben, the London Eye and Southbank.
“I’m just putting it out there”
The sound bath. Exactly what I needed.

My boss telling me to go and meditate in the sun for 10 minutes while she finished setting up. I got paid to meditate!

Getting up before everyone else and sitting in the sun meditating and reading.
Driving into Wellington on SH2 and seeing the beautiful city glimmering in the sunlight, just like it did nearly a whole year ago when we arrived.
The whole flat together, eating and laughing and laughing so much that eating is difficult.

Rubbing heads with the cat.
Meditation.
Feeling part of the house.

A lovely last meditation, picturing previous holidays in France.

Watching Jinkx Monsoon lip sync for her place in the final three of RuPaul’s season 5. She is hilarious!
Everybody singing loudly in meditation. I finally felt comfortable singing and it felt really good.
Watching the weather move across the city from my window. And feeling warm and dry inside.

Finishing the mats for our van.
Looking through our plans and itinerary for our travels last year. We did so much stuff!
I had a realisation in meditation this evening that led me to a clearer idea and plan for what I want to do work and life wise. It’s all about confidence.
