New boots.

Staying at Hannah’s.

Travel man

Shopping on SN high street in all the bougie shops, buying expensive wooden toys that won’t be that well liked. With Jonny, of course.

Making the fox for Alfie. It’s so cute!

Dinner and cocktails with the Lads. Amazing Indian food, nightmare dinner guests and Cambodian Christmas plans for 2023.

Still so much snow!

Homebase. I love all the smells and things.

Shopping! I so rarely do it. It was so fun to buy lots of face things and do pretty much all my Christmas shopping in one go.

The heron at Camley Street.

Shopping in Waitrose.

Chatting to Louise and Alison more

Getting almost everything I needed in the hardware shop that I didn’t realise was there.

A shower after work.

My vulva in a national sex education campaign!

Last minute charity shopping – hat, dress and three books.

HOLIDAY! Hello Palermo!

Boob.

Eating lunch with Jen in the sun on the terrace at the wetlands. Such a beautiful day.

Wilko’s and using the scan gun. I’ve ALWAYS wanted to use one of those.

Making silly reels.

Making myself a croissant for breakfast and feeling very smug that I booked today off work.

My new waterproof jacket arrived. And I like it.

More watermelon. Because why not. I deserve it.

Beautiful skies at sunset.

Bought sexy new things for myself.

Listened to strong woman music as I bought groceries.

Made a vegan cheesy pasta sauce.

Dom was here and it was nice to sit and chat.

Teasing Jonny about Alex.

Online shopping! I haven’t bought anything for sooooo long and today I bought a recycled bag, organic bedsheets and some Wild deodorant.

Lunch with Jo at Big Jo.

Going into the fabric shop again. I got to touch fabrics!

Sewing Bee with biscuits and Jonny.

Making unicorn headbands.

Poundland. I didn’t realise it was open!

Watching the live band on the bench in Highbury Fields. Really fun and reminded me what London is actually like.

Shopping when it’s quiet in the morning. I was able to stare at the cereals for aaaaages with no one walking past or making me feel like I need to hurry.

Sewing all day, mostly by memory. More jeans and another jumper.

Another HelloFresh meal. I love lemony minty things. I need to use those flavours more.

I got the puffer jacket for even cheaper.

A meeting with Mark and Tom. Both of whom I fancy.

My brother, randomly sending a naked photo of himself with a washboard covering his penis. I have no idea why but I laughed a LOT.

Getting lots of shit done today. Lots of shopping for little bits. Itch relief cream, tissue paper, envelopes, elastic, clay. It feels very successful.

Having lunch in a cafe again. And eating a shit ton of veg followed by a great hot chocolate.

The ridiculous Christmas setup I found at one house today. There was even a big manger scene on the side of the house, along with a snowscape in the shed.

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.

Eating my gross looking but delicious, if crumbly, vegan cakes, covered with peanut butter and butter icing that is mainly butter.

Treating myself to some new things. All from Japanese shops. Including lunch.

& Juliet. I CAN’T STOP SMILING.

Sewing the cute little animals on Freddie’s present.

Being ID-ed for buying scissors in Poundland.

Buying lots of craft stuff and knowing that it’s not my money.

Oinks from Han.

Meeting my neighbour on the street as Trump’s helicoptors circled round and round and us both swearing up at them and calling him a prick. Plus this news story.

Bag shopping at Cotswolds.

Dinner with Jen. Laughing so much I leaked period blood everywhere.

Green tea mini kit kat from Japan.

Decathlon. Buying everything. Trying everything on. Big empty shop with no stress.

Evie Oddly’s second face.

Buying a new phone. Just like that.

Pizza and drinks with Rochelle. It’s been about two years but it was fun.

He text me at lunch time. I know I shouldn’t get so excited but I like him.

Not really sure what day it is again. But from the last 24 hours…

Lovely shower

Finally made it to a Uniqlo

More new KitKat flavours

Having a seat between us on the flight. It’s so much nicer when you can lie down

Buying our way into the fancy lounge at Ho Chi Minh. ‘Free’ watermelon for daaaaaays

Basically a whole day with Jonny and it was lovely:

Shopping together.

Changing his pennies into pounds at Metro Bank.

A pub night, trying a new pub and then going to an actual nice pub.

I get to look after Penny, the tiny dog that is more eyes than face, next weekend!

Board games. Winning at board games.

Sitting in the sun in the park again.

Also, shopping quietly and on my way, being nice to myself was lovely too. And I deserve four nice things today.

All the white butterflies that are around right now. They’ve been fluttering past me for weeks and I keep forgetting that they are one of the things that make me smile. But they always do.

Feeling relaxed and horny in the park, sunbathing, with a nipple poking out my bikini to see what’s happening.

A little wander around the SGR shops and getting this new plant. Please don’t let me kill this one.

A bigger Tesco. With so much choice! And so much less busy than Lidl. Dreamy.

Eurovision with Jonny.

Finishing the sewing for mum and dad.

Shopping during work hours. Stripes for days.

Ivan’s chocolate biscuits.

Sewing the fire mitt for mum and dad.

A new water bottle. From a beautiful design shop.

Realising how cool it is that I’ve been asked to be on a panel.

Bright blue skies today.

Carrie Bradshaw’s house (underwhelming), the Friends apartment (also underwhelming), Ground Zero, taking a ferry to Williamsburg, delicious Mexican food, new rings, a carrot cake doughnut (so delicious), the view from the roof and a really great coffee.


Discovered a local department store. The jeans still weren’t right but I ordered what I need. It felt good to explore a bit, even after being here for two years.

A couple of the pieces at the National Portrait Gallery. The moving portraits by Julian Opie were cool. Physically moving I mean, not emotionally.

Jo came round with my P45 and cuddles after work. Really nice to have a mini catch up for about 45 minutes.
