Coming home and sewing and eating gyoza.

Seemed to spend the day buying things – elastic, photo frames, desk chairs and then lots of soft fluffy fabric for kids clothes.

… Which I then turned into a dinosaur jumper for Fred.

Getting an answer right on University Challenge. It was about female comedians. Of course I knew.

Spending the morning sewing vulvas instead of working

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.

Now I have the internet in my room I can sew vulvas on my bed when it gets too hot upstairs, and still be ‘working’ on my laptop.

The dungarees I made for people arrived today and they got lots of love.
