I baked a carrot cake!

Spotting the little squirrel curled up in the tree outside. That you can’t really see in this photo.

She bought me flowers. Even if we didn’t end up hanging out today.

Mark checking up on me and telling me that a solution will be found. I love him.

Walking along the New River path. Twice. Watching the ducks and seeing the leaves change colour and being reflected in the water.

An eco Grand Designs I hadn’t seen.

Stripey tree.

I’m allowed to get a new desk. Project beautifying my room has started.

Succession – what are you waiting for? A kiss? Fuck off.

Visiting Lewes with Jo. It’s so bloody beautiful!

The views of the south downs between the buildings.

The Scandinavian style houses along the river.

The tree penis.

And Jo making me feel like I can actually do the creative thing.

Walked to Londis at lunch time. I haven’t been there in a whole.

The huge sunflowers near the shop.

A first date with Tash, especially taking about sexualities and how we feel.

I saw a heron at the park after work. And watched the big cygnets swim into the green algae, one after another.

Doing some sewing of vulvas. I haven’t done any in a long while.

Silly conversations with Jonny in the evening before bed.

Got a personal best on Sudoku.

Stopping to watch the squirrel on my walk.

Deciding to be present on my walk, and not try to think too much. And the sun came flickering down through the trees.

Silly jokes with Jonny.

An actual proper hug from Jonny.

Lying in the park reading. And not the park right next to my house.

Seeing Jo, if only briefly, to return library books and eat a patis de natas and hug.

I also ate half a watermelon and took myself out for a Turkish lunch.

My body wants cheese.

The ladybird that landed on my trousers.

Having a big salad lunch at the café with the hot waiter.

A walk in the rain.

The robin outside my window.

An email from Mark about Lewes.

The beautiful tree exhibition at the Hayward Gallery.

A delicious Japanese lunch on my own.

Yoga nidra, home alone and listening to the rain

Walking in the forest and through the grass.

Getting my calves wet and cool on the river by the ruins.

The beautiful houses in Minster Lovell.

Being on holiday, and away from the flat.

The tiny deer venturing out into the field as we had dinner.

Sky. Lots of sky.

Getting to work from this beautiful garden.

Watering the garden with a hose. I love using a hose.

Jonny came home.

Also our sunflower is here 🌻

Spotting the butterfly on the beer can. And going back to photograph it.

Having lunch at a cafe. A bloody massive salad from the cute guy.

My first tomatoes are ready.

A long walk on the heath with very changeable weather.

Tiny dogs with teeny legs.

Organising my fabric and folding and stacking it all neatly.

Lying on my bed in the afternoon sunshine, with a hot water bottle and a book and trying to relax. No work today.

A butterfly on the parkland walk.

Petek with Jonny. Actually IN the restaurant. And the owner came over to talk to us and see how we are. And he obviously sent us over the free baklava at the end too!

I took myself out for a walk along the Parkland Walk to make sure I moved and breathed.

The branding call with Liv and Oddbox. It helped make me feel more creative again.

Deciding to not do work in the afternoon and put together a pattern for a top I want to make.

Our beautiful tree pits on the street.

Mum telling me that another boater called out to ask after my cyst as they passed by.

Reading in the sun after work in the park.

Going out for a walk in the evening.

And ringing Jo whilst I was out.

Ultimate Beastmaster.

Finishing my trousers and making little dungas for Coop.

Going for a walk through the trees along the parkland path. No music, no podcast, just me and my thoughts. And I was kind to myself this time.

Buying another plastic box to sort my vulva making stuff into. I like organisation.

Having work to do.

The beautiful artwork Becky has made for me. Can’t wait to get my hands on it!

Making a new thing. Sewing a stripy jumper from stretchy fabric.

Walking up to Highgate Woods and seeing all the trees and light and leaves. Two hours of walking. I really needed it.

Seeing Eileen loving Zoom.

Watching the trees blow in the wind and hearing the leaves rustle.

Remembering that we’re having a takeaway pizza tonight!

The patterns from Jim arrived. So quickly too! Now I can get on and make things this weekend.
