Coming home to London at the golden hour.

Seeing all our loo rolls, stacked around the house.

Having a shower in mum and dad’s lovely shower.

The beautiful autumn leaves and low sun.

Fred. When he smiled and laughed with me.

And when he walked into the glass door.

Wine tasting and the beautiful olive groves

The egg hunt back at the villa

Hot tubbing with the mountains in the background

The name game plus bonus behind the curtain round

That tiramisu

Watching the Sewing Bee with Jonny.

Doing the New River Walk at lunchtime in the sun that actually felt warm.

The beautiful sky by the Thames.

The ridiculous sunset. I swear so many people from the office ran to the window to take photos that the building tilted slightly.

Aidan buying a bar of soap. And seemingly genuinely wanting to reduce his plastic buying. Maybe it’s not all down to me but it feels nice to feel a bit part of it.

A fun first date with Ben.

The curly tree

The walk with Jen

The sky at sunset.

Time to myself.

A walk as the sun was setting and the light was beautiful.

Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again. Still makes me laugh

The cup of tea. Feeling grown up and in control.

The sky between the building as the sun set. It was better than this photo. By about a million.

Meeting the Maya Centre and agreeing to volunteer for their art sessions to encourage body positivity. I feel *so* good about this. It brings together so many facets of my life and my skills and my passions. Vagina education, reclaiming your body, being proud of your genitals, fighting mental health, recovery from sexual assault, helping women, being part of the sisterhood, art and crafts and how they can help with healing, using my facilitator and trainer skills and doing more volunteering. This just feels so good. I’m so proud of me.

Yoga

The sound off my feet on pavement and the autumn leaves

The sunset

A walking meeting, circling the park in the sun.

Walking home as the sun was setting across the park, watching birds up in the sky.

I bought the flowers. It’s done. It’s over.

The sunset view from the office. Such a warm glowing light.

My vulva making workshop will be at WOW! Yippee!

Getting food ready for tomorrow. I feel so organised and smug.

Waking up to funny stories with my cousin.

Matilda was at our house again! Lots of strokes.

Going for a walk around the park as the sun set and the hangover slightly receded. 


Our beautiful cottage for the weekend. A weekend away from my house, in the countryside and with nothing much to do except read, relax and eat.

A little walk along the water as the sun set, followed by a little explore in the an old small church.

A delicious pie and mash, in my tracky bottoms and big socks, on the sofa. Let the relaxing weekend begin.


Such a good nap. I didn’t even move. Fresh air, smooth sheets, deep sleep.

Books, beer and Korean with Jonny in the evening. It was such a lovely evening. 

The setting sun, shining off the buildings and turning gold as I arrived home.


The sky this evening. It looked like it didn’t belong in London.

My massage. Sorting out my shoulder and being clicked every which way.

Leaving work early. Even though I started late. I wanted to be in the sun and sit in my garden and read my book. So I did. 

Leaving work when it’s so late for a second day in a row. 

And I have tomorrow off! First day in 11 days. I can’t wait!

Home baked gooey biscuits, just out the oven.


The clouds, the light, the view. I’ll never tire of looking out that window.

Then the eerie orange light than made us feel like we were in some strange apocalypse film. The pollution apocalypse.

Delicious Korean food and I did it without eating meat.


Getting a ridiculously large number of people liking my Instagram post. I’m not sure how it happened but it was nice! (Even though this goes against all my hatred of social media and the Quest for Likes)

Going for a run around the park as the sun was setting. Beautiful sky and a good way to shake off being sat in a training room for two days. Also I did so much better than my last run. Muttering ‘You got this’ clearly helps.

Creative writing in the evening. For work and for a personal project. It felt good to use those skills again.

A day with the cousins.

The walk through the woods to the pub.

Discovering some facts about my childhood that I hadn’t realised. Like the fact that the reason we came back to the same house was because we owned it. Makes sense.


Brilliant Christmas Bake Off Good Eggs chats again. Bonas. 

Walks with dad and finding the solar panels at the end of the village.

Driving around all the roads of my childhood as the sun set, singing loudly. 


Joining the GAP team for lunch.

Leaving work for Christmas. YAS! I love Christmas, I love walking through sunset-y London, I love going home and I love being on holiday from work. Weeeee! 

Being at home, going to a big supermarket with my parents, talking about recycling and FairTrade things.

All the people taking ‘I’m In’ stickers outside Peckham Rye. The people coming back to get one if they accidentally walked past. The people thanking the people giving out leaflets. The wishes of good luck.
Drinks in the sun at Frank’s in Peckham.
The lightening storm as we left.

Walking over the Malvern hills
Volleyball as the sun sets
Sitting round the fire, under the stars, with my cousins. Talking about vaginas, nipples and tit tape.

Fems bracelets.
The yellow sunlight from the sunset shining into the flat.
The curls on the drawing of me.

The view from Frank’s Cafe in Peckham.
Attack of the giggles when we ordered dinner.
Loud Nicki in the Uber on the way home.

The ridiculously bright sunset. The photo doesn’t do it justice.
My period started. Hello happy moods again!
A chatty afternoon with Gavin and the new Ryan.

A cheesy lunch day.
Going for a walk at sunset for some fresh air.
Getting excited about another job I really want and writing a pretty awesome cover letter for it.

Waterworks. The weird water ‘theme park’ in the Coromandel. Loads of fun! Giant hamster wheel, big swings, a flying fox and lots of water inventions that get you wet.
Driving Creek Railway. The teeny tiny train zig zagging it’s way up the big hill over double decker viaducts.
A beautiful sunset over the water.

Sunset down at the beach, jumping around and ruining peoples photos and splashing in the sea.
The amazing house we’re staying in. Huge windows, beautiful kitchen, sea view.
Playing games with the family in the car on the long journey.

The clouds. And the sunset.
The aquarium. The turtles were so cute and the sharks were cool. The rays were funny and the guides were so informative.
My period started. Just like that. No migraine. No days and days of waiting and waking up in the morning expecting it start halfway to the toilet.
