Watching the Sewing Bee with Jonny.

Doing the New River Walk at lunchtime in the sun that actually felt warm.

The beautiful sky by the Thames.

My beautiful new plant. Big and green and beautiful. Carrying her back from the shop in the sunshine, with her leaves in my face was pure joy. Worth every penny.

Recording the podcast this morning. It made me feel much happier and more positive and really proud of the things I do.

Music in the sun.

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.

A squirrel bounding across my path on my way to work

The escape room with the fun team

Slightly drunken pizza watching The American Office

Discovering peanut butter in porridge. (Not a photo of my actual breakfast but it looks good)

Meeting Diarmuid for a long and very chatty first date. He’s nice.

Wandering aimlessly around Hampstead Heath.

Another day of lots of listening to Sustainababble whilst walking round the borough.

Decided to take a route back through the park. Even though I was exhausted.

My nephew licking his mates head.

The morning sky

The squirrel I spotted hopping along the train line wall, high up and silhouetted against the sky

TEN portions of fruit and veg today. And a day of being totally vegan.

Packaging up leaflets into envelopes. A nice mindless task for a Monday.

Lots of people saying yes to donating stuff for the Period Party.

The big fox lying like a dog on the field by my house as I walked back from the date.

The light, walking home at half 2. It’s so beautiful in winter.

Talking masturbation with an unknown Irishman on Hinge.

Dance aerobics. Smiles throughout.

Aaaaand playing Dobble and Floundering with Dom and Jonny

The curly tree

The walk with Jen

The sky at sunset.

The sky on the way to work. It was nice to have a break from exclusively grey skies for a bit.

Yoga at home. Inner smiles. Head bowed almost to the floor.

David the chimpanzee and David the Attenborough.

The bird on the tree outside the front window

More Nicki Minaj. Making me strut and feel better.

A handstand at yoga.

Watching a big leafy wind swirl on the way to work. Plus some pretty flowers too.

Feeling so energetic and happy today. When I should be ovulating. I really hope this means the diet is working.

He text!

Walking alongside the bounding squirrel.

Finding my favourite kids Christmas books in Oxfam and buying them for Freddy.

Cuddling the baby at Liam’s party. Which is never what I do. Or enjoy. He was cute though.

Walking to a meeting listening to music and looking at the beautiful blue sky and autumn leaves.

A day of successful meetings that buzzed me up. The students, the Car Free Day one and the asthma nurse one.

Chatting vulvas with Michael at the air quality event within minutes.

The leaf, stuck into my window frame and waving out at the world.

Finishing the building blocks for Freddie’s Christmas present.

Walking around the park in the sun, looking at the coloured leaves and enjoying the warm weather and no headphones. And flirty texts with Nat.

Getting off the bus early and walking along the canal.

The beautiful autumn leaves everywhere.

Leaving work early and going to bed early. Finally. What a long week.

The park was surprisingly warm at lunch. Reading my book in the almost sun with the hazy sky was bliss.

Flirting with Nat.

Crafts with Sarah at the Southbank. And the fireworks on the balcony at the end. Best of all the world’s.

New plants on my windowsill

The surprisingly delicious aubergine brownie

Starting. Starting the building blocks for Freddie, starting the idea of selling the embroidered vulvas and starting the planning for my next vulva party.

This tree, looking almost in flames in the afternoon sun.

Doing the crow for the first time in yoga!

An afternoon of slow shopping for healthy ingredients for food that will hopefully make me happier. I felt really calm and grown up and happy. And discovering the bulk buy store was incredible.

This beautiful tree near my house

Seeing my name graffitied on a bin. It was just so bizarre. It’s not a name you usually see anywhere.

Kissing

The squirrel on the path at lunch time (and then this image)

Seeing Jana when I wanted to go home

Red wine in a not-pub and not-bar

Two walks in the park, amongst the autumn leaves

Seeing my plastic free menstrual product sticker up on the toilet doors. I love seeing them.

The hairdresser’s. The ASMR of the scissors, the woman next to me who told me how much she loved my haircut and wants the same, having an hour where I just sat. No book, no phone, no screen. Just sitting.

AND finding my new favourite tea in the Japanese shop near my house.

Koyasan. Beautiful red temples against an unexpected blue sky. Wandering around in the afternoon was pure joy.

Our home for the night – a monestery with a beautiful garden, real paper doors and staffed by monks.

Discovering vegetarian snacks at the 7/11

Our elaborate vegetarian dinner. Numerous bowls of delicious things.

The beautiful onsen. The big wooden bath, the wooden stalls and the bamboo bowls. It’s all lovely.

The sound of frogs and crickets and wildlife in the garden just outside. It feels so lovely and quiet and still up here.

Blue skies! So blue.

Our walk through the valley. Along the river, through the ancient forests and via a beautiful beautiful pond that I think might just be one of my favourite places in the whole world. It was so peaceful and perfect.

So grateful for the weather being perfect today.

First onsen. Definitely needed after a 5 hour walk.

Ice creams and boiled egg snacks.

Laughing at Han tripping up.

Kamikochi

Japanese badger

Monkeys. Lots of monkeys. And two of had sex right in front of us.

A walk through the forest and alongside the river.

Laughing at Han tripping up

Managing to swap buses effortlessly. Everything is so damn easy here!

Getting excited about the book with Liv.

Telling her the fox story and seeing her laugh.

Going for a little walk at lunchtime and spotting the squirrel on the tree, looking at me. (Not this squirrel but this is also very joyful).

Watching the sunbathing blackbird at lunchtime. And discovering that that is what she was doing.

Good Eggs stupid photos. Mainly of Alec. Really made me laugh.

Finishing the day with a phone call from Eric, who wants to help me get more street art in the borough. I like it when people want to help you.

The ladies pond. Oh it was so lovely. Swimming next to ducklings and with herons swooping along next to us. Getting over my fear. Being in a women only space. Sunbathing with my boobs out. It was perfect.

Sunbathing in the park with Jonny followed by showing him the delicious organic shop. And just spending time with him like normal.

Doing the puzzle and listening to the radio with Jonny in the evening. Everything felt relaxed and lovely. Exactly how a Sunday should feel. Even if Claudia didn’t read out our boring message.
