Getting excited about vagina t-shirts. Again. But for real this time.

Blue Planet II. Amazing colourful rockpools.

Talk of little Sophie.


Being surprised by the beautiful beach near Blackpool. It actually reminded me of being in Australia. And missing it. 

Wandering along it, litter picking in the sun.

Walking from the beach to the pub with Gust and Rose.

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.

A walk along the cliffs to Beachy Head.

Mexican with Jonny. Waaaaay too much food. But it totally got me in the mood for Barcelona.

Watching RuPaul together in bed. We haven’t watched an episode at the same time for ages.


Driving the car through the countryside.

Beautiful Piran. Walking through the cobbled streets and along the waterfront at dusk. The pretty square. The apartment 15 seconds from said pretty square. The super calm water, making me feel so happy and peaceful.

It was my birthday! We went for a beautiful walk along the beach with a clear blue sky and a calm sea.

Sitting outside at the pub in the sunshine, with the sea just meters away.

Dinner with everyone. Amazing salmon. ALL the cheeses. Followed by the parcel game. So much love and laughter.

Bunters. Big night out in Truro.

Lemon caaaaake!

Climbing up the windiest cliff and looking out into the sea.

A beautiful warm walk along the coast

Playing Dobble

Thieves are often old women

Walking on the beach, making animal noises
Head of dicks
The orange with a mini orange inside (yep, it was so cool that this post deserves two photos)


Giggling over big bras with mum. Especially this big bra/little bra combo.
A seaside walk with some old friends. And my complete inability to organise it.
Birthday messages (its my birthday today)


Seeing this view after trekking up hot hill after hot hill.
The seal splashing around in the water below us at Separation Point.
Relaxing in the sun and writing my diary at the campsite at Puponga after a long day of walking and driving.


The sea. Oh the sea. It was so clear, so beautiful.
Being pulled around and floated so it felt like I was swimming really fast.
John’s stories about his teenage years.


Going for a morning walk around the coast and discovering more and more beautiful, empty coves and bays with clear water and soft sand.
Family time on the beach, teasing Hannah.
Zapping my brothers bites. And also his arm, foot and tummy. Just for fun.


Swimming, snorkeling and kayaking in the beautiful clear sea.
Going for a walk around the beach with mum and dad in the evening.
Rizzle Kicks in the car.


Christmas day body boarding at the beach.
Dad as Father Christmas calling Poppy poppy.
Lying about in the pool on our new inflatables, drinking beer and chatting quietly.

The quokkas roaming around the island and getting really close.
Not staying in a hostel.


Body boarding down sand dunes. So. Much. Fun.
Seeing the most northerly point in New Zealand in beautiful weather, driving past really Australian looking scenery.
Wandering around the lovely campsite in the evening sun, spending some alone time together.


Sitting in the peace and quiet by the river and remembering what it’s like to be somewhere with no wind. So calm and still and so silent.
So many beautiful views of the sea as we drove further round the coast.
The cute 70’s kitchen in the youth hostel. Such thick paint, such shallow drawers.


Paddling in the sea and discovering rays swimming along by me. A bit scary but exciting.
The boat trip out to the hole in the rock. The best bit was riding the waves and standing at the front of the boat, feeling how fast we were traveling.
‘Wendy almost fell over in her disbelief at his stupidity.’


Having a shower with the sun shining through the window. It’s nice to have a shower in the daylight but it also reminded me of showering at home in the summer, knowing I had a whole day of being outside in the garden or the countryside ahead of me, with my parents near by and everything being safe and normal.
The weather was beautiful today. The market was full with people buying bags of fresh, colorful good and afterwards I sat on the dock, thinking and meditating a bit and for the first time thinking to myself that maybe I could stay here longer. It’s a beautiful city. And the winters are just so sunny.
The sunlight glittering off the sea. It looked like an elaborate light show just for me.


Getting the bus round to Lyall Bay to enjoy the winter sunshine and watch the surfers with a cup of hot chocolate.
The Lego Movie. Surprisingly good. And funny.
Homemade pizza. And I didn’t make too much and feel sick like I normally do.


Sitting in the sun down at the seafront and just hanging out together.
Going on the bush walk in Te Papa, hugging some super old rocks and knowing that mum and dad did this when they were here.
Getting a text from a mate saying her date went well last night. Drinks, giggles and a sneaky kiss under the stars.


Walking down to there pool and seeing the clear blue sky, feeling no wind and looking out at the flat, beautiful sea. Felt a bit bad that I was about to pay to go into a pool. Although it would have been freezing out there!
Seeing photos of the house we’ll be staying at in Australia in December. Oh my god. It’s going to be so good!
A man doing some stretching at the swimming pool that looked like he was grinding on an invisible partner.
