Have I Told You I’m Writing A Play About My Vagina.

The women coming up to talk to me afterwards.

The period box in the toilets. 😍

Lots of texts. Lots and lots of texts about good things.

My phone knowing I only talk about big watermelons or big personalities.

My period started! I knew it works, I felt so much happier just before bed last night.

Being at the video bit for the photoshoot.

Cumbersome womb crown. 😂

A comedy night with James. Russian songs, a giant calculator, wet food and daddy.

The rest of the night with James. Ridiculously good.

Meeting my neighbour on the street as Trump’s helicoptors circled round and round and us both swearing up at them and calling him a prick. Plus this news story.

Bag shopping at Cotswolds.

Dinner with Jen. Laughing so much I leaked period blood everywhere.

A super easy smear test with a brilliant nurse.

Liv ringing me because Vera started her period!

A fun date with Veli where I didn’t notice the time passing. Lots of chats and laughter and flirting.

Rewatching Fleabag

My period starting! Just as I was starting to lose hope that tomorrow would be awful!

The spinach banana ginger dessert smoothie. It’s so delicious. I’m obsessed

My period started!! I so thought it wasn’t going to happen this month and I was dreading having to wait for the PMT to drain away on its own. But it’s here!

Going to a seminar about air quality and following loads of it and finding it useful and understandable. And being asked for advice!

Derry Girls

Napkin origami

Vulva socks

Changing Freddie’s nappy

Getting my period

Lots of walking through London, listening to music. I really liked the song about the black Atlantis.

Period book launch. Photos, red blobs and tons of freebies.

Taking photos in the period photo booth with Jo

My first food processor. What an adult and lovely thing to buy. And hello first soup I made with it!

My period started. Two weeks late and totally out of the blue.

Honestly. Thinking about Stuart. I don’t know what to do but I enjoyed the daydreams today.

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.

The light through the trees outside the office this morning.

Another jumpery, sunny lunch in the park.

Pizza and avocado. Perfect first day of period dinner.

A delicious iced coffee that someone else paid for and I drank during a work meeting.

Kissing Stuart.

Blood blood bloody blood.

I just feel mega proud of all the things I did today for Clean Air Day:

Giving out free breakfasts to cyclists and making people happy on their way to work.

Doing the walk with the Mayor in the sun, feeling so proud that this was my idea and I did it all myself.

Packing up after the final event and walking back to the office with Laura, who is much funnier than I thought, and Stuart, who came down to help.

Plus me and Stuart had a fun evening like we used to have.

A tiring but great day!

My period started

Jonny’s response to my period starting

Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Emptying my mooncup for the first time. I absolutely loved it. I hope it continues to not leak. It’s great! (UPDATE: it did leak)

A big supermarket.

Lying on the sofa at Han’s, eating pizza and watching Love.

Spending all my money at Neal’s Yard. Lovely lovely Neal’s Yard.

An evening with Jen in her sickeningly beautiful house.

First mooncup insertion. It’s only been 5 minutes but it’s going fine.

A free, proper iced tea at a fun meeting.

I bought a mooncup. This is it. It’s going to happen.

Being in the pub with Jonny. I’ve missed him.

Leaving work early.

Group chat about menstrual chunks and goddess rituals. Great in spag bol.

The play. Rejoicing at her wondrous vulva the young woman applauded herself. So good. So emotional in a way I didn’t expect. But really good. I love seeing feminist things. It makes me feel stronger.

A super productive morning. Thanks sunshine and period!

Anal sex and pegging chat with Jo over a hot chocolate.

A film and a beer with Alec. Love that guy.

So much blood. I’m so happy my period is here. Please fix my mood.

The beautiful sunshine. I love love love a bright blue sky.

Listening to Keisha ‘Woman’. Really hit me today.

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.


Meeting Cordelia and hearing all about how the workshops work. And the period burlesque.

Second date. He’s funny.

Kissing. Lots of kissing.


Period! And without all the usual hormones and pain. Very bizarre. But right on time. Can’t believe it’s finally settled into a pattern.

Still walking to work with a smile on my face. Especially over that bridge in the sun. I think I might be my favourite view in London. Can’t believe I’m enjoying working with children so much.

Watched The Martian with Matt and Scarlett. Can’t believe I liked another film.

All the art. None of the money. Thanks borrowed Tate Card.
Cortado. Delicious, delicious cortado.

An evening with Matt, menstruating, eating ice cream and watching a weird film. Then having some good discussions with Mike. 


My period started. Well that sure explains a lot. 

An evening with Jonny. Beers and Korean food. And bitching. I love him. I love him so much.

I’n on holiday! And the air smelt like holiday! 

Accidental loud fart. Very loud.

Yummy, moist carrot cake.

Becoming an official volunteer and having my skills very highly sung in the WhatsApp group.


Wearing my new CHOOSE LOVE t-shirt, doing my teeny tiny bit for the refugees

Not needing any concealer, not wearing any mascara (mainly because of sneezy eyes) but still looking like a total babe. Really feeling myself today.

Talking Period Parties with Binti. I’m excited to be doing something!

A ride in the rickety van to Bristol.
A walk over Clifton Suspension Bridge, through Deer Park followed by delicious Turkish food at SouKitchen. 

Got my period!


My gurl Aunt Flo turned up. 🍅🎈🎟♥♦🖍📌🚩⭕💯🔺

Packing up the office. 

Girl’s night at Holly’s.
