Walking to work through the park in the morning sun. It cheered me up more than I thought it would.

Mum is fine! Thank god.

Watching a film by myself in the living room. Plus a couple of chocolate biscuits.

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.


Ate lots of vegetables.

Had nice conversations with mum, Jen and Jo. Which pulled me out of my slump.

Having wonderful Naomi to explain my feelings to, and having her be so immediately understanding. 

Photos of me and mum wearing my vulva t-shirts.

A beautiful, sunny walk with them.

Telling them all about Body of Women. A big moment and it went well. And then mum gave me a big hug again before bed and told me how proud of me she is and she was sorry for being rubbish when it all happened. It feels good to have told them.


Going to the V&A with Jonny and looking at all the amazing ceramics. And seeing the new entrance. So beautiful and peaceful. Well done London.

Baking some cookies. It was nice to bake. It always reminds me of mum. Plus they were delicious.

Watching TV all evening with Jonny. Especially the final Educating Yorkshire with Musharaf overcoming his stammer. I cried. 


A little four person pub quiz team. It was nice. 

Delicious pub pizza.

Mum listening to my whole story and not interrupting.


SnapChat on the coach with Peach. 

Shit tits.

Dinner and drinks in Bristol wit

The clitoris animation.

Walking and talking to mum on my way to my haircut. I was in a really good mood.

Getting a different hairdresser. He didn’t miss bits like Maria does.


Spending the day with mum and dad. And getting my jars back.

Cream tea in the park.

Chatting boys with Lauren and Scarlett in the kitchen.


A massage, facial and head massage. Whilst the snow storm raged outside. 

Discovering I had a massage at the same time as mum. Random.

Hearing a hat and headphones. 

I got some of my pottery back today. They look so good! I’m so proud of myself! Plus I got to see the kiln which was cool.
A phone chat with mum and then, later, a phone chat with dad.

Remembering when I made a cake for Steve’s birthday and accidentally wrote Happy birthday Seve! ūüôą

Kicking through the leaves.

Petting some sheep.

Watching mum and dad jiving in the kitchen.


Exploring the huge country house that we’re staying in for the weekend. It has a WELL. INSIDE the house.

Seeing my family. Hugging mum.

Having a calm moment at the train station.

Listening to mums recording from last of Fairytale of New York.
A day with Jonny. Beautiful photography by Malick Sidib√© (plus soundtrack) at Somerset House. Planning ice skating. Red wine in a quiet pub, then ramen. 
Itchy bears on Planet Earth II. I laughed so hard.


Feminist art and tea with my cousin

Christmas food at Lidl. 

Ed’s birthday. With his mum there until 3am, helping Oh Annie Oh play Drake on the decks. What a babe.


Mums talcum powder

Walking to the next village, singing loudly in the sun. I never get to sing out loud anymore.

Purple potatoes from Abel and Cole. They made the water turn blue.

A walk along the river.

Lighting a fire. Kind of badly it turns out. And smelling that fresh countryside air in the evening. I love it so much.


A raspberry pastas de natas.

A mum hug

There’s no such thing as a fish podcasts
