Walking a new way to the post office, through a park with a squirrel. And through some quiet back streets, with the blue skies and the reflections in the puddles.

The presents and card from Stuart. I’m happy he wrote ‘love’.

Totally and utterly feeling myself this evening. Dancing and singing in the flat. Wearing a crop top and taking selfies. It felt good to feel so good.

Getting a Bloody Good Period pin badge in the post from Han.

My new Tiger mug/bowl.

‘I got an interview for a job writing about patios’

Oh and bonus one – the funny photos from my friends when I needed them.

Sleeping and Grace and Frankie until 12. 

Lauren having to rip herself out of her trousers.

Seeing Stuart for the first time in 10 days. So nice to have cuddles. And plan all the fun things we’ll do together this year. And he gave me this lovely waffle jumper that sort of matches Jonny’s!


Coming home. To this incredible birthday present from my housemates!

A bath and a face mask.

Alec drinking beer with my cake mum.

Volunteering for Bloody Good. Going and setting up their new extra storage unit. I didn’t really want to go out on the rain but it was really good and I’m so glad I did it.

Being interviewed by Jinan about my vulva t-shirts for their Christmas newsletter. After a day of doing lots of vagina and BOW work. It’s great to have this time to work on all this stuff.

The KBT Christmas party. Pizza, cheese, tequila and beer pong. Highlight was chucking around aaaalllll the balls. And my vulva present from Jen.


Getting the Pin the Clit on the Vulva through the post by the fantastic Jo Harrison. Complete with vagina on the tube and a Fanny Power card inside! I love it SO MUCH. Can’t wait to put this up at the Period Party tomorrow!

James giving Gust a ‘new father’ hug. So adorable. 

Weirdly sexy chat about lambs. 


A breakfast date with Holly before her honeymoon. Double coffee and an almond croissant and three hugs.

A hectic but quite fun day, doing four people’s jobs. The caffeine and mystery dessert left by Gust helped. Pretty sure it had alcohol in it. 

My Secret Santa present from my housemate. He knitted me my vulva design! I was completely blown away – what an amazing and thoughtful (and time consuming) gift!


She got my flowers. It’s nice to make people smile.

After work drinks with my colleagues.

I got through the day. It started off badly but I did it. And it wasn’t so bad. It’s not as hard as I sometimes think it is.

A cute little present tucked into my bag from my lovely colleague including this poem.
Waking to work in the early morning and smelling that cold, snow smell that reminded me of home. My family home. And my childhood.
Emailing my friend about vaginas.

A parcel from my mum with my favorite pair of shoes and some Marks and Spencer pants.
Full body hugging.
A really bloody delicious tart for dinner. If I do say so myself.

Watching the stream rise from my cup of tea.
Getting a gift from my housemate. A copy of Alexa Chung’s book that I keep reading bits of whenever I linger in a bookshop.
Finding out my clever boss split my holiday pay over two weeks so I WILL get some money tomorrow. Hurrah!

collage leaving present

My leaving presents. This collage that was created just for me by a brilliant, brilliant man and a promise that my boss will pay for the care for a beautiful, disabled boy I met in Ghana while I’m away and can’t pay for him. Which is the best present I’ve ever received.

The Alan Partridge flag at Glasto.

Singing along loudly to the Glastonbury coverage

My rucksack for traveling arrived!

My old boss told me that my leaving present would be vouchers for buying books on my Kindle. Perfect as I didn’t realise how expensive they were

The sky this evening. I didn’t take a photo but trust me, it looked amazing, beautiful clouds and such a perfect colour.

My wonderful parents bought me a Kindle. And it arrived today!

The warm weather has made seemingly made a load of students appear, laughing and having fun

I got off the tube a stop early and walked back in the warm evening air thinking about how different everything feels when it’s hotter. London suddenly feels like a European city rather than a British city. If that makes any sense

My very own gold ‘feminist’ necklace from my lovely boss. Worn with pride.

Having an armful of glossy magazine to read. For work.

A ridiculously healthy fruit juice courtesy of the blender in the office. It looked grim but tasted delicious.

Today was the day of our second pop up event so lots of things made me smile. But if I had to pick just 3 things…

A uni friend that made the effort to come, despite not living in London

Getting a late birthday present from my old housemates. And it was a pair of shoes I really wanted. Such a generous gift.

One of the cakes we sold was an apple and blackberry crumble cake. And it. Was. Incredible.

Clearing out the loft with the family and discovering loads of old toys, photos and memories

The beautiful teapot from my friend for my birthday. It perfectly matched the cup I bought in the charity shop months ago.

A silly conversation on Skype with my boyfriend.

Good morning cuddles

Finding a Secret Santa present really quickly. And it’s a good one.

Thinking that my boyfriend had shit himself. He hadn’t but it was still funny until the truth emerged.

My boyfriend’s Christmas present arrived and it looks like it will fit him.

Got a lot of work done and felt much less stressed.

Made another cork bowl. This time for a friend for Christmas. Another one ticked off the list and no money spent. Boom.
