I saw James again.

Meeting the Gynae Geek and being on her Instagram.

My period started. Way early. And pretty timely, coming home from. Period event.

Have I Told You I’m Writing A Play About My Vagina.

The women coming up to talk to me afterwards.

The period box in the toilets. 😍

Lots of texts. Lots and lots of texts about good things.

My phone knowing I only talk about big watermelons or big personalities.

My period started! I knew it works, I felt so much happier just before bed last night.

Being at the video bit for the photoshoot.

Meeting my neighbour on the street as Trump’s helicoptors circled round and round and us both swearing up at them and calling him a prick. Plus this news story.

Bag shopping at Cotswolds.

Dinner with Jen. Laughing so much I leaked period blood everywhere.

A super easy smear test with a brilliant nurse.

Liv ringing me because Vera started her period!

A fun date with Veli where I didn’t notice the time passing. Lots of chats and laughter and flirting.

Rewatching Fleabag

My period starting! Just as I was starting to lose hope that tomorrow would be awful!

The spinach banana ginger dessert smoothie. It’s so delicious. I’m obsessed

My period started!! I so thought it wasn’t going to happen this month and I was dreading having to wait for the PMT to drain away on its own. But it’s here!

Going to a seminar about air quality and following loads of it and finding it useful and understandable. And being asked for advice!

Derry Girls

A lie in. I slept till 9 and it was wonderful.

A lovely walk around regent’s park and seeing Primrose Hill for the first time.

Period. End of Sentence. So uplifting. We are the creators of the universe.

Napkin origami

Vulva socks

Changing Freddie’s nappy

Getting my period

A delicious iced coffee that someone else paid for and I drank during a work meeting.

Kissing Stuart.

Blood blood bloody blood.

My period started

Jonny’s response to my period starting

Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Getting a Bloody Good Period pin badge in the post from Han.

My new Tiger mug/bowl.

‘I got an interview for a job writing about patios’

Oh and bonus one – the funny photos from my friends when I needed them.

Emptying my mooncup for the first time. I absolutely loved it. I hope it continues to not leak. It’s great! (UPDATE: it did leak)

A big supermarket.

Lying on the sofa at Han’s, eating pizza and watching Love.

Spending all my money at Neal’s Yard. Lovely lovely Neal’s Yard.

An evening with Jen in her sickeningly beautiful house.

First mooncup insertion. It’s only been 5 minutes but it’s going fine.

A free, proper iced tea at a fun meeting.

I bought a mooncup. This is it. It’s going to happen.

Being in the pub with Jonny. I’ve missed him.

Leaving work early.

Group chat about menstrual chunks and goddess rituals. Great in spag bol.

The play. Rejoicing at her wondrous vulva the young woman applauded herself. So good. So emotional in a way I didn’t expect. But really good. I love seeing feminist things. It makes me feel stronger.

A super productive morning. Thanks sunshine and period!

Anal sex and pegging chat with Jo over a hot chocolate.

A film and a beer with Alec. Love that guy.

So much blood. I’m so happy my period is here. Please fix my mood.

The beautiful sunshine. I love love love a bright blue sky.

Listening to Keisha ‘Woman’. Really hit me today.

Mum’s blood test results are back. It’s pretty much certain that she doesn’t have ovarian cancer!

I might be in WOW twice! Vulva workshops are being considered!

Actual period blood. Please let this be the end of the hormone mayhem.

A night with Sarah. Lumiere and chips in a gay pub.

Free hat with the big tampon and pad deliveries! Yay! #freeperiods

Having to cut off a conversation with dad because 3600 tampons were arriving on my doorstep. When I text him to apologise he said not many dad’s would hear that story from their daughter and he was proud of me for helping a good cause. He’s such a babe. 

Stuart came round mine and drunk weird strawberry gin with my housemates and it was lovely. I like having him here to stay.


Meeting Cordelia and hearing all about how the workshops work. And the period burlesque.

Second date. He’s funny.

Kissing. Lots of kissing.


Period! And without all the usual hormones and pain. Very bizarre. But right on time. Can’t believe it’s finally settled into a pattern.

Still walking to work with a smile on my face. Especially over that bridge in the sun. I think I might be my favourite view in London. Can’t believe I’m enjoying working with children so much.

Watched The Martian with Matt and Scarlett. Can’t believe I liked another film.

MRF. Geeking out on recycling.

A woman on Instagram telling me she has decided to do menstruation related art work because of my vagina Instagram account. All the feels.

Jo. For phoning. For her Facebook stats. 

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. 


My period started. Well that sure explains a lot. 

An evening with Jonny. Beers and Korean food. And bitching. I love him. I love him so much.

I’n on holiday! And the air smelt like holiday! 


The Period Party! Everything about it was just so amazing! The unexpected friends, the love, the laughter, the vulvas, the glitter, the donations and the pub quiz.

Not to mention the accidental anal sex talk in front of my boss, sharing the vulva book and having people tell me that I’m hilarious. Guys, stop…

What an amazing evening! I’m totally buzzing and so proud of myself. 


Wearing my new CHOOSE LOVE t-shirt, doing my teeny tiny bit for the refugees

Not needing any concealer, not wearing any mascara (mainly because of sneezy eyes) but still looking like a total babe. Really feeling myself today.

Talking Period Parties with Binti. I’m excited to be doing something!

A ride in the rickety van to Bristol.
A walk over Clifton Suspension Bridge, through Deer Park followed by delicious Turkish food at SouKitchen. 

Got my period!


My gurl Aunt Flo turned up. 🍅🎈🎟♥♦🖍📌🚩⭕💯🔺
