Selling Sunset and watermelon.

I made it back to work and everything has grown huge and green and flowery!

A night out at the pub with the LEGGS, following an amusing selfie with an awkward bag.

Dancing in the toilet at Liverpool Street Station with my headphones on, trying to make the toilet flush.

Leaving work at 4pm and watching two episodes of Succession. Whilst texting Jonny saying things like: Logan DIES?! Shiv is PREGNANT?!
