Kew Gardens

Jen

Sexy badger

Ranking swear words with the volunteers.

Watching butterflies dance together.

Talking about periods and vulvas for a students project.

The squirrel at lunch.

Elvie is actually quite cute.

Garlicy, cheesy, courgette rice. With freshly picked courgettes.

Chucking the squirrel a tomato at lunchtime.

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.

Repotting plants.

Discovering the nature garden at the other end of Parkland Walk. It’s so beautiful.

Being in the beautiful tiny wood, with all the birdsong and flowers and sunlight falling down through the trees.

Finishing my first basket.

A spider plant baby from Sally.

The seedlings have grown enormously. Especially the courgettes.

The busy bird activity outside my window this morning – blackbirds and blue tits all diving into and out of the ivy.

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.

Back to bed for a morning nap after we went for a poo walk. The sun shining in on the bed was so lovely.

A huge big brunch with Rosie at the Turkish place. Plus a free Turkish coffee after.

Saving the toad from sycthing.

Saying penis and vagina in a tree walk with the teenagers.

Dogs! The dog at the hairdresser’s, getting to look after my hairdresser’s dog next weekend and Penny coming to stay!

The ducks on the veranda at work.

A trip to the plant nursery with Caroline.

The cheese and potato pie at Jen and Fiona’s.

The dementia friendly walk. We had a young guy come along and it was nice to show someone new around the park.

I bought my first shares! Felt like a total baller!

Funny tiktoks on the sofa.

Snow!

Ducks!

Ciaran’s amazing investing presentation. He’s such a lovely guy!

Listening to Sally do the nature walk. She knows so much!

A successful nap on a sunny afternoon.

The balldo. The sex toy that makes your balls into a dildo. I really want to see it on someone because it looks ridiculous.

A lovely sunny volunteer day with no stresses.

The random tiny bubble floating along my road.

Speaking to a woman for her dissertation about vaginas and having a lovely feminist rant.

New dish. Cauliflower and grape salad.

Reading in the sun at lunch time.

Seeing two people initially disagree in the comments of my hymen post but then nicely come to an agreement and even start to follow each other.

Talking to Sally and seeing her big fat toad.

Searching for woodlice.

Hearing that Ben, Chris and Priti all told Sally how much they love me and want to keep me at the centre after October.

Sitting on the sofa with Jen and Fiona, under a blanket with my legs across Jen’s lap.

Morning cuddles with Tash.

The bright blue sky and the blossom appearing.

Linking arms with Jonny and walking down Oxford St together. I love it when we’re like that.
