My booklets arrived!

I managed to photograph, make and put my vulva hearts online. And sold one immediately.

The beautiful blue skies and a brief walk along the old railway line.

And a peanut butter egg.

Cutting out the pieces for Jana’s pregnancy dungarees. Feels nice to be sewing again.

Listening to Jo trying to retell the story of when Jonny got so high he cut himself out of his shoes. Her laughter makes me laugh so much.

Getting out the house for a walk, even though it was a bit rainy still. I’m enjoying a different season on the parkland walk.

Jana’s fabric arrived, and in such beautiful packaging!

A walk immediately after work, managing to catch the last of the daylight. And walk along the quietest parkland walk I’ve ever seen.

Yoga nidra. Instead of TV.

Learning how to make a block pattern to my measurements.

Spending the afternoon (and evening) doing the illustrations for the booklet.

Got a letter asking me to book my colposcopy. Which is great. Because I thought it might be postponed due to covid.

Sarah’s reaction to the soft sleep suit I made for her baby.

Watching the video of Fred opening the things I made him. He really liked them!

Coming up with a book idea that might actually work. And even Jonny thought it was good!

I finished the jumper, with a little alteration that I’m quite proud of.

The rainbow out the window as I sewed.

The banana and peanut butter smoothie.

Happily sewed a pair of pyjamas, making them nice because I wanted to. And just knowing how to do it.

Seeing Jo for a dusk walk to Boots.

Dipping Yorkshire puddings into a mug of almost-gravy.

Talking to Kevin about making clothes. It’s really nice when someone is genuinely impressed.

Watching the fireworks out the window.

Winning the boob cast that I’m obsessed with!

Planning a Christmas day with Sean and organising all the food. Making crackers and felt hats and wrapping presents. Buying Christmas scented candles and batteries to make the fairy lights brighter.

Changing my dungarees into comfy trousers.

A bath, with candles, a face mask (dropped off by Libby today) and a sound bath.

Our pegging stuff arrived!

Finished Fred’s adorable penguin jumper.

Meet Sean for lunch and even though it was absolutely pissing it down, I felt much better afterwards. AND I saw a broccoli growing in the park on my way home!

Making some clay mushrooms for Sean. Not sure they turned out that great but it was fun to try something new.

Finished dad’s present.

Started making an adorable penguin jumper for Fred.

Old friend chat on Zoom. Surprisingly fun!

Finished finger puppets!

Sewing Ben’s present and it looking pretty good.

Learning how to sew gussets and it actually not being that tricky!

Chatting to the guy in the hardware shop about magnets and velcro for ages.

Seeing a fox outside Tash’s house. Middle of the day, fairly busy road. Not bothered at all.

Did some sewing – finished Ciaran’s felt breakfast, made some more bags and masks and started Han’s bag.

Cauliflower cheese. Yeah it looks like cat sick but it was exactly what I needed.

Talking to Jo. And drinking tea on a bench, sharing a cinnamon bun.

Sewing. Just getting on with it and doing it. And enjoying it. With nice music on.

A felt waffle and egg for Ciaran.

Jonny being in a better mood and playing Valhalla.

Buying a few courses for next year.

Waking up to cuddles.

Listening to the WEP conference discussions whilst sewing vulvas.

Another bao bun for dinner. Two actually.

I went for a bloody run this morning whilst the sky was pink!

Getting everyone to send me GIFs about how they’re feeling. I’m feeling really happy today!

Sewing up the pouches. Only finished a few but they look good.

Walking around the reservoirs.

Sewing the vulva pouches.

The smell of wood chips and fresh air.

A really fun birthday brunch for Jo. Featuring breast milk chat and olive oil.

I got home in time to buy zips….

To make my first vulva pouch!

Mainly spent the day sewing vulvas.

Sat at my desk for the first time to do creative things and draw vulvas.

Finally in the mood to put up and change around the artwork in my room around the new desk and lamp.

Saw Jen for an impromptu lunch. Not at all vegan but very delicious.

Sewing vulvas and listening to funny podcasts.

GBBO lols from Twitter

Being in Brighton and Hove for the day, walking in the sun, playing with the stones on the beach and feeling my family roots.

Chatting to Lydia about vulvas, imposture syndrome and feeling like you’re in competition. I feel reinvigorated again!

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.

I saw a heron at the park after work. And watched the big cygnets swim into the green algae, one after another.

Doing some sewing of vulvas. I haven’t done any in a long while.

Silly conversations with Jonny in the evening before bed.

Watching the Drag Race finale. I love Jujubee.
