Finding two £10 notes on the walk to work.

Sitting in the sun for lunch, by the canal.

Deciding to walk home along the canal too. Just for a bit.

Borrowing socks from Adam and completing my great outfit for today.

I feel happy again today! I chatted to Adam all day, I made jokes, I smiled, I sent a nice message to Stuart. I feel like me again!

I found another £5 note on the floor.

Spotting this adorable bit of Street art.

Finding a ten pound note. And spending it on delicious drinks and custard straws for my colleagues.

Watching the clouds change in the park at lunch.

A kind email from John.

Having the swimming lane to myself. Calm water and slow moves on my back.

Japlanning

Maybe getting a water fountain installed at work because of me. And chatting to facilitaties about recyclable cups. It’s nice to have knowledge.

Pub with Charlie, the words loveliest dog.

Finding a fiver.

Snowy walking today. It got a bit too snowy at some points but it was lovely.

I did it! I won us £2,000 funding for BOW! I can’t believe it! So pleased!

Seeing Jonny this evening. It’s been ages and it was so nice to see him.

Walking to work through the snow. Smiling and being happy after a cuddly night. And happy to be walking to work again.

I’ve been paid! Finally finally finally.

Itsu for lunch. Thanks salary. And another lovely walk. Thanks fixed foot.

Sunny sunny sunny.

Sending off my invoice for the last three Saturdays. Please let her pay me tomorrow.

My outfit today. Stuart’s jumper, my black denim jacket (it was warm enough to ditch the winter coat for a day) and my freshly washed and clean smelling scarf.

The Life of Trees exhibition at the V&A. And going there for a general wander around to look at things I wanted to see. It was tough at times but I loved this photo by Bae Bien U.

The condom workshop. Money, free condoms and strong women. 

This goat(?) His nose makes me smile.


The squirrel outside the gym, pulling chips out the newspaper.

Had a really positive morning. Sent off a job application, had a conference call where I found out we’ll be paid for WOW and then I went to the gym. All before 10am.

Spent the afternoon sewing more vulvas.

Then I met another great feminist at Corinne’s leaving party. It was really fun to talk to her. Whilst texting Stuart about cheese. So much cheese. 


Another £150 for chatting to friendly Northern Irish people.

Meeting Fran.

Hanging out with Gusty and Jen. Just like old times.


First day at my new freelancing job. Making time capsules with recycling materials. FUN! Basically being paid to chat to kids, cut up paper and occasionally pick up bits of cardboard.

Probably got paid more today than I’ve ever been paid in one day before.

Jonny’s giant sharpie penis.


Found a fiver in the leaves on the way to work. Looking at my feet pays off sometimes. Oh and I spent it on a pint.

Office bingo.

Drinks with Hol. Finally being able to talk to someone about everything in person. That was good.


Two hot tub dips

Got me a job. A well paid one too. Japan here I come.

Penguins in high heels. On QI. 

​Such a ridiculously beautiful day. So sunny.

Making that paper. Yes to cleaning.

Liv said nice things about my writing.

Bad Feminist by Roxanne Gay.
Getting to the till and discovering I’m paying way less than I thought.
The guy who might move into our room when we leave sent to the same college on the other side of the world to me. And after snooping through his Facebook friends I find out we know a few of the same people too! Such a small world.

At the beginning of the month we give a free coffee to our regular customers and it’s always a nice day. But today one of my favorite customers, a woman who has been coming in more and more, had her first free coffee from us and was so touched. She said it made her day and that kind of made mine.
Finding out I definitely have a pay rise and it wasn’t just a mistake on my invoice!
Everyone being in good moods at work. It just makes the day so much happier.

Being told my haircut suits me by another customer. One of those things that you can’t hear enough.
The boss leaving us on our own this afternoon. We still worked hard but we also had a giggle and felt more relaxed without her there.
Looking in the bank and seeing both our wages in there!
