Lying in the park. Again. Reading and thinking about ideas.

Not wanting to work with the deodorising wipes people but thinking I could do what they suggest without them. It feels like another career is possible.

Cutting up the HUGE cardboard box from Jonny’s bike. With knives.

Some gentle yoga.

Video calling Jana and Charlie. But never really seeing their faces…

A run! I ran ran ran along the parkland walk in the sunshine.

Actually getting some work done today. Felt quite good to have stuff that needed to be done and actually got done.

Iced tea. A really good iced tea.

WFH with Sean. Lunch out, cuddles and sharing problems.

Sorting out a CRT problem. And getting praise from Andrew for it.

Jana and Charlie’s recycling.

Nalini’s leaving drinks. Chats about politics with Keith and Sarah.

Just generally feeling happier about stuff. Happier at work, happier because of Sean, happier because it was warmer today. I’m reading a better book, I’ve made lunch for myself. Just lots of nice good simple things.

The happy dog barking as I ran to work. Just before it started snowing!

All the lovely comments from people on my Sex Education series. It really feels like I’m making a difference!

Feeling impressive and respected at the canal meeting. Plus it was nice to be in the sun even though it was very chilly.

Having some parents say thank you to us for being there outside their school.

More free sex toys. And it started off a fun conversation with Sean.

Laughing with Jo, Jonny and Corinne in the pub with the candles and takeaway pizza.

Going out and doing the idling event actually distracted me more than I thought it would and I forgot about being sad for a while.

The light in the afternoon and the cool dark clouds. I took this lovely blurry photo… 🤦

A message from Kulbinder after I assumed he wasn’t interested.

Running to work for the second time.

The DLR ride with Tom, Charlotte and Stuart. And it being like mates rather than professionals.

Funny messages with both Joe and Meredith.

Our work Christmas decorations. They’re getting better and better.A fun first date with Jack.Finding £5 on the floor in the way home.

Lebkuchen.Planning our work Christmas decorations.Hearing that James is getting better.

Coming back into the office and seeing the Emergency Planning team have gone all out on Christmas decorations.

The meeting with Simone about the counselling and support for nine months. I’m so glad I didn’t sack it off. It was great! I love her.

Fanos telling me he’s gone vegan. Well, almost.

Mint tea with James. And lots of texting too.

Getting rid of the survey for the canal project. I hated it and I was totally stuck on it.

Meeting and planning with Hani for s vulva exhibition.

The smell of the tomato plant.

Pastel de nata from the MacMillan’s coffee morning.

Sitting next to the Corporate Director. I think it’ll be good that we’ve chatted and got on well.

The good mood at work continues.

I smashed the presentation at the scary canal meeting.

Edith Piaf on the way home.

Being in a good mood at work! Goodbye Car Free Day, hello not being stressed!

Reliving Japan, one year ago today. The great coffees and the incredible savoury pancake thing.

Rich roast peanut butter.

The happy resident, who thanked us for being here and wanted us to do it all the time.

Watching Barry’s arms load up the van.

It’s over. It’s all done. Pizza and bed.

Stupid old Richard not falling for my new email trick. The email back made me laugh too much.

Talking to Adrian and finally feeling like I’m getting somewhere with this canal project. Despite the fire alarm going off half way through.

Watermelon.

Meeting John Thorne and he told me lots of helpful things.

Getting an answer right (totally by accident) on University Challenge.

Headache yoga with Adriane.

My four plants in front of the fire place. They make me so happy.

Finishing my embroidery.

Everybody getting involved in the Barry situation.

The man on the bus who told me we were in Finsbury Park because he’d overheard me asking when I got on. So sweet I wanted to cry.

Ruby’s pleasure talk. Meeting a woman who had seen me at WOW, in both capacities. And a woman who had drawn me naked. And realising I don’t need to be like Ruby, I can be by myself.

Walking along the canal in the sun after work. Sitting on a bench, watching a cat watch me from inside a canal boat.

Discovering new storage areas in the basement. And the creepy Scottish puppets dolls down there…

Flurries of emails at the end of the day. The exciting bit of a project when everything feels possible!

Going to lie in the park after work, reading in the sun.

An evening of watching Jonny play Assassin’s Creed and messing about on Instagram, singing stupid things to each other.

A banana bitmoji.

Active office work – lots of stairs, basements, moving and chatting.

Daydreaming and remembering last night.

Talking to Andrew about vulvas, penises, willies and dicks.

Deciding to come home and relax rather than go to the talk.

Being helpful to Andrew when Claudia was being a complete dickhead. It felt good to be needed and to be able to help.

The thick, proper hot chocolate from Camden Passage. Drunk whilst walking the sun on the way back to the office.

Leaving the office just after 2.

The sky, walking home.


A butterfly in the station.

Being good at training. I enjoyed today. I did a good job.

A few pints and some Thai with Jonny. It’s nice to walk to a pub for a casual evening. And then be home and in bed early.

A walk along the canal. For work. Obvs.

A quick fix from the neurologist.

Vegan sausages and an early bedtime. I’m glad I bailed. I needed this time alone.

Sitting in the park at lunch, reading in the sun with a breast feeding woman next to me.

Feeling like I’m pushing for something at work. It was a long old day but it was good.

Walking back from the pool after work, through the park in the evening sunlight. I’m glad I went.

Doing a great job presenting to the U3A.

New make up. Organic make up.

(Vegan) buttery pasta

The long awaited canals meeting is over! A big smile of relief to tick that one off.

Delicious bread with olives in. I love olive bread.

A massage with Joy

Getting shit done. Three documents that I was sort of dreading but were actually pretty easy.

Meditation class. My feet on the ground and relaxed breathing.

Quietly giggling with Jonny before during and after meditation. Gold nipples, the hot beardy guy and kneeling for Jesus.
