Feeling the hot sun on my legs in the park

Slow walking in the sun

Relaxing in the sun at lunchtime. It was a lovely temperature today. You could sunbathe a bit without being too hot.

Sitting next to Keith. Such a positive and lovely guy. He really made today nice.

Swimming. Swim swim swimming.

The ladies pond. Oh it was so lovely. Swimming next to ducklings and with herons swooping along next to us. Getting over my fear. Being in a women only space. Sunbathing with my boobs out. It was perfect.

Sunbathing in the park with Jonny followed by showing him the delicious organic shop. And just spending time with him like normal.

Doing the puzzle and listening to the radio with Jonny in the evening. Everything felt relaxed and lovely. Exactly how a Sunday should feel. Even if Claudia didn’t read out our boring message.

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.

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.

Home baked cinnamon swirls for breakfast with fruit and Jo.

Being in the water at the lido. Floating on my back and staring up at the sky.

The Instagram of puppies falling down stairs. Can’t stop laughing.

Playing the animal noises game with Libby after Andrew left.

A night with Jo. Petek and chats. Lots of good chats. About sex and babies and the future and housemates. It was exactly what I needed.

Having a shower before bed. Washing off all the suntan lotion and sweat and having clean feet and soft skin in bed, with nothing else on.

A lovely coffee in the sun with Jo and deciding to set up Bloody Women. Or something similar.

Volunteering at BGP. I wasn’t really looking forward to it but it was actually really nice.

An afternoon with Jen. Sun walks, a picnic in the park and Floundering with Maria.

Getting this message from someone on This is a Vagina. So lovely.

Yep. Four today. It’s been a lovely day.

Going out in the glorious sun to measure pollution levels in adventure playgrounds. Which obviously included going on a zipwire and climbing up some huge wooden climbing frames.

More park sunbathing at lunchtime. Will this ever not make me happy?

Sacking off my evening plans and coming home to wash and wax and sit in my PJs on my own. Total bliss. Plus a background of Liam Gallagher live.

Spending the morning on my own, taking down the exhibition. A nice quiet start to the day.

Leaving work early because the adults had all gone. So I sat in the park reading for a few hours.

Hanging out with Stuart, Matt and the Greeks for Bill’s birthday picnic. They are fun and it was lovely to have a fun evening with Stuart again.

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.

A day off. Hello lie in!

Lying in the park, just living my best sunny life.

Potato and egg salad. God is there anything more delicious?

Watching the England match in Alec’s garden, with a delicious BBQ and funny friends.

Lying on my bed, with the sun glinting through the tree outside my window, reading.

Silly jinx conversations.

Putting up unicorn birthday bunting in the new living room for Jonny’s birthday.

Birthday breakfast with Jo. Fruit, eggs and friends.

Lying in the (new) park in the early evening, watching the clouds.

Gardening. A day in the sun. Relaxing. I’m glad I took today off too.

The smell of shaving foam.

Our new compact Hoover.

Another day of lying in the sun. The (slightly overgrown) garden in the morning and the park in the afternoon with Will.

Being in the sun all day but not getting burnt. So grown up.

That feeling of being freshly washed after a day of suntan lotion and sweat and getting into a clean, white bed.

The shadows playing on my towel, drying in the breeze. I love summer.

Sitting in the park with Stuart’s friends.

Reading in the sun in the garden.


Giving out ice pops in the office.

An evening at home. Picking up parcels. Food shopping. Chatting to Scarlett and Matt in the garden for a few hours.

Wearing Becky’s dress with the slit. I always feel good in this dress.


Beers in the park after work with Holly

A Ben and Jerry’s ice cream sandwich

Community. My community.


Dozing in the sun, in my parents garden.

A walk along the seafront in the afternoon. With obligatory ice cream break.

Watching the bat flit about in the darkness.


Doing weights at the gym. Turns out all the intimidating men don’t go to the gym on a Saturday lunchtime. Also sweated out all the beer from last night.

Enjoying the sun. In the garden. In the park. In the sky.

This cool face on the toilet door.

Lying in the sun in the park, reading my book and getting a tan.

Basement Tapes. Will came. It was fun to see him. And to dance.

Sam. Being wonderful and brotherly and supportive. Hugs and advice.


Being out in the garden. Putting my sunflowers outside and planting up some runner beans. Hanging my washing on the line. 

The drumming at the park.

That smell of summer. Having the windows wide open. Feeling the warmth of the sun. Lying in the park reading my book. It was a good day. It was a calm and peaceful day. 


Making the office go to the park at lunch time to enjoy the sun. And then going down the curly yellow slide.

Making a wicked awesome 3D bat card for my colleagues birthday. Complete with her marrying a kayak on the front. It makes sense in context.

Jonny’s elephant Nelly. Big and gentle, not grey and wrinkly.


Did a good interview. Pretty proud of myself.

A day working in the garden.

A picnic with Holly in the evening sun.


A Mr Freeze to cool down. Retro.

The grandma and grandson holding hands and walking in the park.

Beers in the garden (and on the stairs) with housemates, talking Bumble, first dates and milking cows. 


An evening in the park and along the canal with Jonny. And ice cream.

AAAALL the babes in Victoria Park

E.M Cocks


Mint Magnum

Alec and Ciaran’s Good Eggs argument

The yoga instructors voice. Off-putting but also funny. Reeee. Laxed.

​More beers in the sun

Strangely, a night with Zoe that made me feel better. Fuck all that shit.

Walking through central London alone on a hot night. Being offered £5 to slap someone. I love London. Its so beautiful.

Oh and then coming home to another hilarious Good Eggs conversation involving drunk me and new fonts.

(And actually, considering that this morning I was sad and crying and now I’ve got 4 good things, this has been a fantastic turnaround of a day)

​Such a ridiculously beautiful day. So sunny.

Making that paper. Yes to cleaning.

Liv said nice things about my writing.
