Signets swimming outside Decathlon

Book Smart

Kissing on the tube stairs. It’s what I would hate other people doing but it’s lovely when it’s happening to you

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.

My new plants. Especially this little pink one.

Aaaand the bit silver one outside the kitchen window. It makes me smile whenever I go in there.

Dinner with Jana. Where I left feeling happy and not at all like I needed to compare my life to hers. Also the working truffle pigs. 😂

Black tulips!

The tree outside our house has sprouted out all green leaves since we’ve been away.

Walking down to Southwark. And then back up to almost King’s Cross.

The birds singing as I meditated on self love. They started right on cue, singing the love into me.

A text from Simon. I’d actually almost forgotten about him.

A successful community engagement project at St Luke’s. Friendly people, a beautiful centre and lots of people happy to see what we’re doing.

The idea that I might be able to buy a house. In Islington.

The abundance of blossom everywhere. Fleeting and beautiful.

Not listening to anything. Just silence

My boobs illustration! Looks amazing.

Going for a walk along the railway line in the sun

Going for a second walk and smelling the grass

Yoga. For courage. Perfectly timed.

Freddie smacking himself in the head with a wooden spoon whilst playing the saucepans

Reading in bed, by the window with the newly leafy tree outside.

Cooking cooking cooking all day. I made so many new things and today!

Looking up stuff to do in Georgia. Including a stay in a fancy spa with its our aquarium?

All the birds outside on the tree as I had an early Saturday breakfast

Making Fred laugh and smile and feeling his solid little tummy

Bluebells and a walk in the woods

The little yellow bird that visited the tree outside the window as I had breakfast.

The way the light fell across the plants.

A slow, headphone-free wander along the New River Walk at lunchtime. Tiny moorhens, blossom and sunshine.

The blossoms and colours in the bushes

After work drinks. Much more fun than I expected

Parklets near my house. Maybe. And just getting confident at my job again. I got a lot done today, including some things that I thought would be too difficult last week. I felt like I impressed Andrew again today.

Going back to my old office and getting hugs

The squirrel squeezing its way through the chain link fence

The light as the sunset on the way to the library after work. Totally made up for the terrible weather today.

The ladybird that hitched a ride on my skirt

Walking through the park

Making my own hummus

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.

A squirrel bounding across my path on my way to work

The escape room with the fun team

Slightly drunken pizza watching The American Office

The morning sky

The squirrel I spotted hopping along the train line wall, high up and silhouetted against the sky

TEN portions of fruit and veg today. And a day of being totally vegan.

Packaging up leaflets into envelopes. A nice mindless task for a Monday.

Lots of people saying yes to donating stuff for the Period Party.

The big fox lying like a dog on the field by my house as I walked back from the date.

The curly tree

The walk with Jen

The sky at sunset.

The sky on the way to work. It was nice to have a break from exclusively grey skies for a bit.

Yoga at home. Inner smiles. Head bowed almost to the floor.

David the chimpanzee and David the Attenborough.

The bird on the tree outside the front window

More Nicki Minaj. Making me strut and feel better.

A handstand at yoga.

Walking alongside the bounding squirrel.

Finding my favourite kids Christmas books in Oxfam and buying them for Freddy.

Cuddling the baby at Liam’s party. Which is never what I do. Or enjoy. He was cute though.

The squirrel on the path at lunch time (and then this image)

Seeing Jana when I wanted to go home

Red wine in a not-pub and not-bar

Koyasan. Beautiful red temples against an unexpected blue sky. Wandering around in the afternoon was pure joy.

Our home for the night – a monestery with a beautiful garden, real paper doors and staffed by monks.

Discovering vegetarian snacks at the 7/11

Our elaborate vegetarian dinner. Numerous bowls of delicious things.

The beautiful onsen. The big wooden bath, the wooden stalls and the bamboo bowls. It’s all lovely.

The sound of frogs and crickets and wildlife in the garden just outside. It feels so lovely and quiet and still up here.

Kamikochi

Japanese badger

Monkeys. Lots of monkeys. And two of had sex right in front of us.

A walk through the forest and alongside the river.

Laughing at Han tripping up

Managing to swap buses effortlessly. Everything is so damn easy here!

Getting excited about the book with Liv.

Telling her the fox story and seeing her laugh.

Going for a little walk at lunchtime and spotting the squirrel on the tree, looking at me. (Not this squirrel but this is also very joyful).

Watching two foxes play fight and hang out near my house. They seemed so unbothered. And much bigger than normal city foxes.

Being more me and funny in the meeting with all the boring men.

New book idea stuff. Talking to Liv and getting the blessing from Naomi.

Watching the sunbathing blackbird at lunchtime. And discovering that that is what she was doing.

Good Eggs stupid photos. Mainly of Alec. Really made me laugh.

Finishing the day with a phone call from Eric, who wants to help me get more street art in the borough. I like it when people want to help you.

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.

Walking down New River Walk. So beautiful.

We spotted some turtles sunbathing in the river.

Doing a puzzle together in the evening.

Walking along the canal, for work, and seeing the moorhen balancing on the ropes before launching into the water.

The rainbow at work, when one side of the building was sunny and the other side had heavy rain.

Muji brown post-it notes. Ohmygawd.
