Accidentally taking a sneaky photo of a colleague with the flash on. Thank god she didn’t notice.

The sun came out at lunch again. Another sunbathing-in-the-park lunchtime.

Making four pairs of pants in the beautiful studio.

Hot summer lunchtime in the park, tanning my legs

Linking up and getting a fabulous new venue for the next Period Party

Making a dress in the evening and not even making a single mistake. A lovely quiet evening of making.

Making a collar with Will. It’s fun to have something to make.

Lying in the park, reading and watching the clouds.

Discovering the extractor fan switch! Please god let it sort out the damp.

Free croissant for breakfast. I forgot how tasty a really good croissant is. So flakey.

A walk with Jen up the old railway line after work.

Making another pair of pants. I can’t believe how quickly and easy it is!

Parcels started arriving with things for our new flat. Hello new toilet brush.

Vaaaaaangie. Can’t stop saying it. Can’t stop watching it.

A walk in the park when the sun came out. It felt good to leave the house.

Sewing a cute bib for my nephew. Hopefully this one will be the right size.

Embroidering alone to a podcast.

Lunch in the park, reading a great book.

The cardboard VR headset game about pollution. I liked watching Libby turn around and around in her seat.

A night on my own, at my house. Tax return (hello £900 rebate!), replying to emails, picking up pills, making reusable face pads, salads ready for lunch and a face mask. It felt so so good to just get things done and be at home.

Going for a walk around the park in the sun at lunchtime.

Spending a lot of the day chatting to Adam and Libby. No managers, no ‘adults’.

Coming home and sewing. Finally. I’ve been wanting to do it for days.

Waiting for the bus in the brilliant sunshine. So lovely after weeks of grey.

Pressing the final curtain lining. Thank god! Now I can start sewing.

Voice messages from the Good Eggs. Especially Alec singing chinbone.

The beautiful sky on the walk to work this morning.

New Muji stationery. Whoops. Couldn’t help myself.

Pressing the curtains seams in the living room and hanging out with housemates.

Wearing eye makeup and feeling pretty.

Went to a machine embroidery class. It was fun! I like doing things.

And it was nice to chat on the phone whilst waiting for my bus after too.


Baked some cakes! To apologise to Stuart for ruining his birthday yesterday. 😬

Teaching Jo how to embroider.

Watching Stuart play Assassin’s Creed after he helped me go through the job description. 


A wonderful letter and bad ass card from Han to cheer me up, telling me all the amazing things I’ve done and why she loves me. Plus some great photos of the fun times! She’s so lovely.

Finishing mum’s embroidered Christmas present. Now they both have a top with their boat logo on!

A night out for Stuart’s birthday. We went to Shep’s, ate delicious food, chatted to James, got free cocktails and shots and a discount too! Then some extremely drunk but very good sex when we eventually got home. From what I can remember anyway


A day of embroidery and podcasts by the radiator. I’m so proud of the boat logo on dad’s t-shirt. 

Becky’s 30th. Mainly chatting to Robyn about poo stories and her throwing up in her sleeve at a wedding. So funny.

Mum’s videos of the ducks, sliding about all over the ice.


The squirrel outside the gym, pulling chips out the newspaper.

Had a really positive morning. Sent off a job application, had a conference call where I found out we’ll be paid for WOW and then I went to the gym. All before 10am.

Spent the afternoon sewing more vulvas.

Then I met another great feminist at Corinne’s leaving party. It was really fun to talk to her. Whilst texting Stuart about cheese. So much cheese.

Finding the perfect bedside table. Secondhand. Wooden. White. Cheap. I knew I was waiting for a reason.

Starting the campsite research. And not being immediately put off. Maybe it could happen.


Ovary embroidery workshop! Nice to spend a day with a needle in my hand.

Fresh hot roti at lunch.

Walking to the pond in the sun. The butterfly that almost brushed my face. The almost fearless squirrels playing in the secret part of the park that I hadn’t discovered before.
Sewing a dress. Sort of no mistakes.

Turkish and two walks in the park with Jonny. A minthy drink and a hunt for an ice cream in the Tesco’s I’ve not been in before.

The perfect pubes on this embroidered vulva.

Watching 20th Century Women. The perfect IWD date with Jo.
