A mossy green walk in the forest.

Group napping in the afternoon.

Made in Dagenham.

Snow! So much snow! Kids of sledges in the park. The squirrels jumping across branches and shaking down snow flurries. Grown men throwing snowballs.

Smiling at strangers because it’s snowing and they smile back.

An M&S pizza.

A walk in bluebell wood. Sans bluebells, obvs. It was frosty and crunchy and beautiful.

Snow! It still makes me so excited to see the first snow.

Dancing and singing to Christmas songs.

Seeing zebras at Fred’s nursery.

Cuddles with him on the sofa.

Walking into the village and seeing a kingfisher, a heron and a water vole.

The cute boy and his very neat colouring in.

Meeting Wendy. She’s funny.

The two new sunflowers growing where the old sunflower got ripped off.

Taking a moment to sit and listen to the birds this morning.

Getting a gynae appointment for tomorrow.

Making a delicious dinner that was a bit different and healthy.

Picking the dried Honesty. It’s so pretty. And it’s nice to walk the streets with a big bunch of flowers.

The smell of the earth after it rained.

A quiet walk in Epping Forest, just me and the trees.

Listening to the rustles in the dry grass.

That first taste of korma. I’ve not had it in so long and the coconut taste is delicious.

The heron at Camley Street.

Shopping in Waitrose.

Chatting to Louise and Alison more

A ridiculous but tasty dinner.

Louise was back for volunteer day. I really like her.

I got to pick blackberries from the secret place I’ve never been to before.

Seeing a slow worm for the first time, as I walked to work.

Watching the fledglings flying with their parents.

Picking tomatoes, courgettes and blackberries from work to eat. #wholesome

Waking up and seeing my new wall hanging. And Sally seemed genuinely impressed.

A morning outside repotting plants, planting out garlic and sweeping.

Leaving therapy feeling lighter than I went in.

The butterfly walk and seeing people so excited by spotting them.

Listening to A British Scandal.

Seeing my living room tidy and hoovered.

The very enthusiastic man who discovered the park this morning and really loved it.

Opening the woods and being there alone for a bit.

Using my company credit card for the first time.

The seedlings have grown enormously. Especially the courgettes.

The fox on the path.

Weaving my basket and thinking about my therapy.

The gentle wood smoke smell in my bedroom.

Orgasm.

Walking home through the park on this beautiful Spring morning.

Kardashians. I know it’s utter shit but I love it.

The beautiful cherry blossom against the blue sky.

The colourful sunset and seeing it reflected on London’s skyscrapers.

The Action for Happiness event. This one felt like it really gave me something.

I got Elliott and she loves dad’s chew toy he made for her.

I saw a baby fox in the park.

I learnt how to weave a basket.

Walking around the park in the morning to check on it and just getting to be out in nature in the morning.

Another day working on my own and getting lots of shit done. My to do list is so much shorter.

I saw a starling on my way to Tash’s

The 7.30am walk with the birds chirping and singing in the trees and no one around.
