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.


The squirrel outside the gym, pulling chips out the newspaper.

Had a really positive morning. Sent off a job application, had a conference call where I found out we’ll be paid for WOW and then I went to the gym. All before 10am.

Spent the afternoon sewing more vulvas.

Then I met another great feminist at Corinne’s leaving party. It was really fun to talk to her. Whilst texting Stuart about cheese. So much cheese. 

A walk around the resouvoirs. Chilly but beautiful.

Watching Notting Hill. What a film. 

Just general housemate lols.


A big squirrel hoping about our garden like it’s an assault course.

Lovey helpful Trish at the workshop today. She was so great and hands on! 

Reading, again. 


The anti hen party chat from Jana and Hol. Glad to see we’re all on the same page!

Matt inviting me down to watch Africa.

And then actually watching Africa. I like watching Attenborough shows with Matt. We do good commentary.

Bright autumn leaves on the walk home.

Being good at interviewing. I like being on this side of the table.

A big veggie stew on a baked potato with Bivan for dinner. Plus some wine. In front of Bake Off. 

And the smell of lavender in the fresh evening air.


A huge bumblebee on my sunflower. 🐝🌻

Conversations with Hannah about spaff and blowies. Just really tickled me.

Which gave me the energy to clean the house. Which made me feel loads better.

The most perfect day on the canal on their new boat.

All the wildlife. The kingfisher, the dragonflies, the greedy swans.

Dipping my toes in the water, sitting in the sun at the front of the boat.


Walking to the pond in the sun. The butterfly that almost brushed my face. The almost fearless squirrels playing in the secret part of the park that I hadn’t discovered before.
Sewing a dress. Sort of no mistakes.

Turkish and two walks in the park with Jonny. A minthy drink and a hunt for an ice cream in the Tesco’s I’ve not been in before.

Plus some chats with Lauren in the living room and seeing the solar fairy lights all lit up in the garden. 


Walking off the day through the park on the way home.

Feeling pretty good about my application.

Watching RuPaul clips. Still can’t get over ‘Category is’. Sickening.


Dozing in the sun, in my parents garden.

A walk along the seafront in the afternoon. With obligatory ice cream break.

Watching the bat flit about in the darkness.

Spotting deer out the window of the train.
Banging pots at midnight with confetti canons.

Singing, dancing and having an actual good New Years. Until 4am. Happy New Year! 

A ride in the rickety van to Bristol.
A walk over Clifton Suspension Bridge, through Deer Park followed by delicious Turkish food at SouKitchen. 

Got my period!

A frosty walk around the Devil’s Punchbowl with my family, jumping over fallen trees and scrambling up steep paths.

Den asking me questions. Listening to what I had to say. 

Planet Earth II. AGAIN. Birds riding birds. Field mice. Jumping birds.


I was early for my meeting so I went for a wander along the river. Next to a swan.

Housemate chats in the kitchen. Tattoos, a shared dinner and the continuing shower saga. It’s almost over. He almost bought a shower rail.

The horrendous fish scene shower curtain. 


Sunday baking.

Organising my birthday. Maybe I do like birthdays afterall. 

The cricket and the glass frog on Planet Earth II

Planet Earth II. The lizards on iguanas made me chuckle.

A quick trip to Bristol. 

Mark and Kate’s ridiculously beautiful bathroom


Fuck off Wheetabix. Today is a crumpets kinda morning. 

The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards.

Boxercise. And making exercise friends. 


Finding a feather in my egg box.

A beautiful walk in sunny West Sussex.

The influx on ducks at lunch.


Beautiful plants at the Eden Project

Taking a different route through the park on the way home. More water, more ducks, more deer. More happiness.

Another night of beer, all the Turkish food and ping pong with Jonny.

The office fox.
Mary Berry and Jonny. Plus Gu.

Just some casual deer on my walk to work.
Remembering the ridiculousness of last night with him and how utterly self involved he is. I probably shouldn’t have laughed in his face but….so ridiculous!
Another puzzle! This time with a time lapse camera.

The squirrel with a conker in it’s mouth.
Corinne.
Scattergories. Testicles, trousers and teeth.

Today was a fucking awful day. If you’re reading this W, I miss you. I should never have let you leave yesterday.

Going for a walk in the mist this morning.
Spotting deer and rabbits and eating blackberries from the bushes for breakfast.
Sitting in the sunshine after lunch. So ridiculously warm. I love September.

Kangaroos! In our campsite! And a whole heap of them hopped past including a tiny baby one. So exciting.
Swimming in the pool. It is so hot here now we’re not in the wind.
A podcast on bliss. The presenters were just having such a good time.

Driving John’s massive car along the empty straight roads of Western Australia.
