Sally is back! Lots of chatting and being able to check things with her and then getting them off my to do list!

Doing another Instagram post.

I feel like I noticed lots of little nice moments today. I think maybe I was looking out for them.

Waking up with James.

Breakfast with Rosie – she made me feel so much better. And I love our rude conversations in public places.

Choosing a sweet breakfast for a change.

The delicious coffee.

Walking along the canal in the sunshine and spotting the birds popping up from diving.

Bumping into Louisa on the walk through the park and we walked slower together and took photos of the beautiful icy morning.

Someone bought me a coffee on ko-fi.

Walking to work through the park and spotted several birds that I can now recognise and I just felt so happy to be back in the park.

A penis mask.

Got my booster jab! Bonded with the jabber.

Finally felt slightly more normal.

Chatting to Sally and knowing that I’ll have my job until October at least.

People loved the lanterns.

And the candle lit walk through the park was really sweet.

Exploring PW with Louisa. And a little bit of moaning about Syd.

Texting mum throughout the Bake Off final.

The bright yellow tree and it’s dropped leaves on the walk to work. It felt like walking through a ray of sunshine.

Accidental bad driving to open up the woods. I felt like I hadn’t laughed out loud in days.

Glue gunning the lanterns together.

Making lanterns at work. FOR WORK.

Someone had graffitied a crude jizzing cock on the pavement and it tickled me as I walked home.
