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.

Bright autumn leaves on the walk home.

Being good at interviewing. I like being on this side of the table.

A big veggie stew on a baked potato with Bivan for dinner. Plus some wine. In front of Bake Off. 

And the smell of lavender in the fresh evening air.

Going for a walk and picking up a conker. A beautiful, not quite perfect conker. 

Watching a toddler playing in a puddle. He was so happy and so engaged. 

Holly got me two jobs. In about half an hour. That’s a good friend. 


A huge bumblebee on my sunflower. 🐝🌻

Conversations with Hannah about spaff and blowies. Just really tickled me.

Which gave me the energy to clean the house. Which made me feel loads better.

Got heaps of work done today. Really easily too. Just smashed it out.

And evening of drawing.

And then laughter with Lauren in the kitchen.

Oh and the squirrel up above me, almost within arm’s reach at the park on the way home.


A lovely walk in Epping Forest with Jonny

Remembering the Malteasers incidence in NZ outside the place with all the mosaics.

New (to me) stretchy trousers. *SO* STRETCHY AND COMFY.


Walking to the pond in the sun. The butterfly that almost brushed my face. The almost fearless squirrels playing in the secret part of the park that I hadn’t discovered before.
Sewing a dress. Sort of no mistakes.

Turkish and two walks in the park with Jonny. A minthy drink and a hunt for an ice cream in the Tesco’s I’ve not been in before.

Plus some chats with Lauren in the living room and seeing the solar fairy lights all lit up in the garden. 


Put my house plants out with my window plants for a bit of a holiday. Still enjoying having plants on my windowsill.

Washed, sun dried and remade my bed with my Muji covers. Love it when you can do it all in one day.

Pottery. I was so much better at coning this week. A huge improvement! Now I just need to be more daring.


Walking off the day through the park on the way home.

Feeling pretty good about my application.

Watching RuPaul clips. Still can’t get over ‘Category is’. Sickening.


Dozing in the sun, in my parents garden.

A walk along the seafront in the afternoon. With obligatory ice cream break.

Watching the bat flit about in the darkness.


Cutting the grass.

Decaf iced coffee in the sun at Blighty, reading my book.

Beautiful clouds.


Going to the White Cube. That place is so damn shiny and​ reflective. I love it. Also the room with all the semi reflective glass rooms – so good!

Going for a walk through the little park and sitting by the pond for a while, watching the slow tadpole prosession. I felt like I couldn’t get enough of smells of the plants into my lungs. And there was a nice man who stopped too see if I was okay.

Coming back and doing some gardening. To think I almost stayed in bed. It turned out to be a really lovely afternoon.

Oh and then Matt and I watched a brilliant volcano documentary with a hilarious voiceover. Plus ice cream. 


Even more sunflowers popping​ up.

Coffee in the sun with Jo. I needed hugs and sympathy after last night.

Walking around Gillespie Park. The bit I haven’t been to before. Flowers and bees and beautiful things. 🐝🌺🌼🌷🌻
