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.

Walking down New River Walk. So beautiful.

We spotted some turtles sunbathing in the river.

Doing a puzzle together in the evening.

A night of 60% cuddle sleeping. I didn’t really sleep much but it was so lovely. And I keep thinking about it today.

Walking the quiet way to work after my opticians appointment. Beautiful trees.

Free breakfast to celebrate our walking win. Warm pastries!

Yoga. For the first time in ages and I’m so glad I actually made myself go to start strengthening my shoulder.

A veggie sausage, egg and cheese toasted sandwich for dinner. It was perfect.

Today has been a good day so forget the three things, have five instead.

All the white butterflies that are around right now. They’ve been fluttering past me for weeks and I keep forgetting that they are one of the things that make me smile. But they always do.

Feeling relaxed and horny in the park, sunbathing, with a nipple poking out my bikini to see what’s happening.

A little wander around the SGR shops and getting this new plant. Please don’t let me kill this one.

A great dog.

Walking through the park in the evening.

The pub with Jonny. Talking about new house stuff.

Walking through the park doing the pollution tubes and finding lots of squirrels.

Han’s long eyebrow hair.

Limmy.

A new water bottle. From a beautiful design shop.

Realising how cool it is that I’ve been asked to be on a panel.

Bright blue skies today.

Watching the rain fall.

Getting a lovely comment from someone who appreciates all the vulvas and has found it helpful for their life. That’s always so amazing.

The blossom tree outside the office. It’s beautiful. And it’s been raining pink blossom down and up and all over.


My new plants. Hai fella.

Having him help me pick a chocolate bar from Seville.

Free comedy night in Angel. It was good to get out and do something.

The trees outside my bedroom window, orange and yellow against the blue sky in the morning.

The weather was so beautiful today. I went for an autumn walk to clear my head.

Walking around the gallery with Stuart, acting like a couple and being a bit drunk. 

A walk around the resouvoirs. Chilly but beautiful.

Watching Notting Hill. What a film. 

Just general housemate lols.

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. 


A big squirrel hoping about our garden like it’s an assault course.

Lovey helpful Trish at the workshop today. She was so great and hands on! 

Reading, again. 


A walk in the woods. With the sun shining and on the look out for deer.

Waitrose bread and Président butter for an in car picnic lunch before the train back to London.

Hot cross buns. 

A beautiful long walk around the Cotswolds. The colours of autumn are everywhere.

Eating an apple, left in a basket outside a cottage.

A cream tea after the walk.


A walk through the little park, to get out the house.

Flirting with Brian.

The house party! Dancing with Alec. Howling into the wind. The fire. Laughing with Lauren.
