Flowers on my way to work

Spoken word night for feminists. Some incredible women and amazing poems.

Running for the bus down the middle of the road afterwards.

An email from a women on Friday, thanking us for what we did and saying she’s now signed up for therapy. Such an incredible feeling.


Even more sunflowers popping​ up.

Coffee in the sun with Jo. I needed hugs and sympathy after last night.

Walking around Gillespie Park. The bit I haven’t been to before. Flowers and bees and beautiful things. 🐝🌺🌼🌷🌻

Two of my sunflower seeds are sprouting! I’m so happy!

The free plant giveaway by the cute community group. Got me a chilli plant and some salad leaves. 

The delicious food at Holly and Al’s BBQ. Of course. 

A perfect sunny breakfast at Blighty. In the garden, with a gorgeous puppy.

Walking round the reservoirs in the beautiful sunshine.

A night with Jonny on the river. And getting hit on. Totally unexpected and really quite nice. 

Going lambing! I was so excited. And by far the oldest child with their parents on the farm.

The smell of my haircut. 

Wine, wine, olives, wine, kissing.

Final event is done. No more storage units. No more weekend work. No more clothes rails. Roll on time off.

Walking home through the park after dropping the van off. The sun was still out and everyone looked happy. I had a little sit on a bench to shake the day off.

I really enjoyed my jumper and scarf ensomble today. I love that scarf.

Breakfast with Jonny.

Driving the van. With Jonny. And talking about him moving in with me. Or at least moving north.

The beautiful sunny weather. I love London in the sun. 

A bloody brilliant dog photo.

This hilarious article about asking the irish parliament their views on Beyonce.

Being outside in the sunshine and blue skies, delicious coffees and kiwi cafes. What a perfect day.

P.s. and an unexpected but fun WhatsApp phone call about British reservedness

Sunny garden coffee mid pack with Bivan. 

Beyonce came on the radio as I was driving the van in the sun. The perfect moment.

Walking home with that lovely spring smelling air, the light fading. The light has just been everything today.

Waking up to a room full of sunshine. The sun actually felt warm on my face today. Every year you forget what it feels like and every year it’s a joy to experience again.

Going to two exhibitions in the afternoon. Sticks with Dicks and Slits was funny and the Museum of Transology was really interesting. Also just having time to myself to go was super lovely.

The tube driver. ‘There is no need to rush. I will be driving that tube too. As long as we all cross the platform, we’ll get there together.”

I’ve finally got the avocado emoji!

Chatting to Jonny in Phnom Penh. He sounds so happy!

I got my tattoo! And it was done by a lovely woman in a bright studio. Joy joy joy!

(Also, because it was a lovely day, there’s more than 3.

The beautiful light coming through the window. The fresh air and the smell of spring. 

Texting Joff in Lidl. And him trying out baking. 

Dinner and cocktails with Rosie. Coconut oil lols. Sharing stories. )

The beautiful blue sky. And the warmth with it. 

Jen talking me through everything. 

Dinner with Jana. Japanese, beers and some Big Chat. 


Pink blossom.
Smiling while swimming, remembering Alec’s airport queuing comments
A day at LCR. ‘Meetings’ outside in the sunny garden, Andy and Rochelle and a BBQ.


Swimming through the sunlight.
A quiet morning to myself. Breakfast in the garden, a little nap and an orgasm by a sunny window.
The carpet warming party.


The different coloured blossoms on the walk home
A hoovered room
Smooth legs


A day with people I like. Away from the estate.
A sunny lunch with Bradnam in the park.
An evening on the Southbank and London nighttime walking.


Breakfast in the garden. Toast, fresh coffee, a magazine and sunshine.
Cutting the grass with the strimmer.
Lee Miller: A Women’s War at the Imperial War Museum. The cycle powered hairdressers made me smile. And the production of Vogue in the 1940’s.  And just what a badass she was.


It felt like it was suddenly light late enough to walk home after work. So I did. And it was lovely.
Flights booked for our holiday to Chamonix. Hurrah!
Drinking a lot of milk. A LOT.


The Riwaka Resurgence, a beautiful spring with clear cold water and set in some stunning scenery. We watched a family jump into the deep Crystal Pool, squeaking at the temperature.
A lunch stop in hippy Takaka. Tons of beautiful food, a coffee and some fresh raspberries.
Leaping around the van trying to squish all the mosquitoes. It took two of us 10 minutes to get them all. It was a massacre.


Doing pore strips with my male housemates. One of them had the most disgusting black bits on his.
Deciding that neither of us wants to get married. Ever. And we’re more than happy as we are.
I wore shorts outside for the first time this Spring. The sky was so blue, the air was warm and my legs were free.


Spring is coming.
A day of giggles and conversations about willies.
Spending the evening with some feminists.


The pink blossom swirling around in the wind outside the shop

37 things you’ll only find funny if you’re British

I was supposed to do something after work but it got cancelled so I could just come home instead. Which was exactly what I wanted.



This happy tree

Going for a slow walk in the warm breeze

Doing some yoga again for the first time in ages. A really nice way to make me feel like I’ve stopped working for the day and can think about me and nothing else


Walking in the sun and feeling warm

Watching the giant pillow fight in Trafalgar Square

Trying on the most purple trousers you’ve ever seen, laughing at them with my friend, and then buying them. This may have been a mistake.

The sun came out! Briefly. But I saw it.

A tickle fight on the sofa

My boyfriend brought home a box of Malteasers. They didn’t last long.


It’s spring. Everything is about to get beautiful.

An evening of blueberries, grapes and loads of veg. Oh and cake.

Warming up, walking in the sun


I started feeling a bit sad listening to a slow song on the tube this morning. I skipped on a track and was blasted with Check It Out by Nicki Minaj and Instant smile and the blues were gone.

Looking up at the blue sky and feeling warmer. It feels like spring is coming.

Spending all afternoon at my sewing machine.
