Lying in the park, texting James.

Hearing that 100 Vaginas made the young women feel much happier with their vulvas. 😍

Also my plant has the beginnings of tomatoes and I went out for lunch on my own again. Hello vegan food and silence.

Camden Arts Center. One if my favourite galleries in London. So calm and beautiful and never ever busy.

A nice message from Andrew.

The man on the bus who told me we were in Finsbury Park because he’d overheard me asking when I got on. So sweet I wanted to cry.

Ruby’s pleasure talk. Meeting a woman who had seen me at WOW, in both capacities. And a woman who had drawn me naked. And realising I don’t need to be like Ruby, I can be by myself.

Walking through the park and over the grass at lunchtime. It felt so wonderful to be on grass with the sun shining. I felt so connected to nature.

The beautiful delicate flowers that have popped up. One was picked so I carried it around for a while.

My brother. My loving, wonderful, brilliant brother.

Did the crow in yoga for the longest I’ve ever done it (still not long but still)

I was on TV. Talking about being raped. And my friends were just the loveliest about it all.

Just walking around, in the sun, at lunchtime feeling badass in my denim jacket.

My beautiful new plant. Big and green and beautiful. Carrying her back from the shop in the sunshine, with her leaves in my face was pure joy. Worth every penny.

Light on my living room wall

Lots of walking around the neighborhood in the bright blue sunlight, snuggled up in my coat and scarf, looking at beautiful houses. I can’t describe how lovely it felt to be outside and be walking. It made my heart feel light and fast.

Dinner and drinks for Becky’s birthday and making friends with Emma. Feeling like I could actually help with something. I like being open about sexual assault. It feels like a helpful thing to be open about.
