Opening my blind to find a fox in the garden.

My flowers are growing.

Deciding to go swimming. And deciding to be happy at the same time.

Buying a beautiful swishy skirt. 

One on one with Matt. And watching Planet Earth together. Cute polar bear cubs and baboons that don’t like the water.

(Today started off as quite a bad day. So I’m enjoying that the second half had lots more smiles in it. So there are more than 3)

Sitting in the park at lunch, reading in the sun with a breast feeding woman next to me.

Feeling like I’m pushing for something at work. It was a long old day but it was good.

Walking back from the pool after work, through the park in the evening sunlight. I’m glad I went.

Swimming.

Walking through the park on the way back home. Everything is green and it wasn’t cold.

Looking at my vulva and taking sexy photos of myself. I never do that but it felt good and confidence boosting.

A day of sunbathing by the pool, diving, BBQing, playing ping pong with Han and Jonny, eating everything and yoga outside with a view of the Tuscan hills.

The dinner in the little cafe at the bottom of the hill.

Walking down the hill at sunset.

A green tea KitKat with a cup of green tea.

Swimming. It’s been too long.

I did all the things on my to do list. Even the things I didn’t want to do. I love a Monday off work.

Swimming in the sea.

Letting the chicken loose at breakfast.

Playing games after dinner. The animal game and consequences. I especially loved Ming’s jellyfish-eagle.

Going swimming. Especially after I almost didn’t.

Taping up the mouse holes in the bathroom. It was quite therapeutic to just focus on tape and holes.

Getting 50% off some great, personalised vulva artwork. Can’t wait!

Spotting this adorable bit of Street art.

Finding a ten pound note. And spending it on delicious drinks and custard straws for my colleagues.

Watching the clouds change in the park at lunch.

A kind email from John.

Having the swimming lane to myself. Calm water and slow moves on my back.

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.

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.

A day by the pool. This beautiful pool.

Jumping in photos.

Beers, cards, feminist chats.


Picking up Hannah – no more solo. And someone to tell my hilarious jokes and comments to.

Our beautiful finca for the week. It’s so gorgeous!

Going for a swim and then eating bread and cheese on the sunbeds. Bliss.

A morning swim. Really thought I wouldn’t do it but I did.
Cracking on and starting the job application. Pretty productive for a Friday afternoon.
A Bumble message.

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.

image

A morning swim. I like the getting ready for work in the changing rooms too.
My colourful breakfast of organic porridge and loads of fruit (that’s not actually my porridge because 1) I was too hungry to even think about pausing to take a photo and 2) I did not make mine look nice at all. I just wanted to eat the thing)
The orange light on the landing.

Chatting skiing and cheese with Andrew.
Swimming after work. I was really looking forward to it.
Hannah’s poo stories.

The cute note from my housemate
Getting up and going for a swim at a new pool.
A day with Alec. Lots of laughter, Vietnamese food and photographs.

A moment to myself on the bench in the park, with the sun on my face
The colour of the sky as I left the office. With the beautiful sliver of moon hanging there.
Swimming in the lido after work, under the beautiful dark sky. It was amazing to look up and see the night above you.

A day with Jonny. Stressfields, corduroy and an M&S roast chicken
Making myself go swimming and then feeling really good about it.
High kicks on video.

The ridiculous outfit my friends put their poor dog into.
Sunbathing lemurs
Swimming 52 lengths. Two of them just floating along slowly on my back, hearing nothing but gentle splashes.

image

I swam 50 lengths.
Doggy massage.
Staying up watching Beyoncè videos with Jonny.

Puppies!
Trying out my new goggles. I live being able to see underwater!
Swimming 40 lengths. I’m getting better.

Nicki Minaj tweeted an article my friend wrote about her. Also I really want this shower curtain.
Hanging with Ryan in the afternoon.
Still finding space to do some floating in the busy pool after work.

Sitting like mum
Getting an interview
Floating on my back

image

Getting the interview over and done with. I can relax again!
Floating on my back.
His towel falling off on the stairs.

My iced tea in the fridge this morning. It had a really cool two level effect and the teabags were floating totally upright.
Swimming and floating on my back, blocking out all the noise and all the people. It’s so nice to be in water.
Three desserts at dinner.

Lying in the sun on the edge of lake Wanaka, relaxing after the days of walks.
Swimming in lake Wanaka.
The lovely mocha. Great coffee, lots of chocolate.

Skyping our best friends.
‘What I want is a face that can pick up a cup of tea’
Running across all the inflatables in the pool and landing in the blow up sofa.
