Beautiful Islington. God I love it here.

Going for a coffee and a pastéis de nata at lunchtime on my own, reading my book in the sunny cafe.

I had a proper to do list and actual things to do. It felt good.

My flights to New York are booked! I have amazing friends.

I built my website. Finally.

A good, productive day where I spent a lot of time out of my chair. I felt confident and in control today.

Being out and about in the van and the sun, not the office.

Brew Crew. Being paid to have a coffee and a chat. That was nice.

A hot water bottle, a bowl of fruit and Love.

A walking meeting, circling the park in the sun.

Walking home as the sun was setting across the park, watching birds up in the sky.

I bought the flowers. It’s done. It’s over.

I’ve been invited to do a podcast.

A day of doing no actual work but lots of WOW thinking. I can’t believe it’s next weekend.

Lots of tea chat at work. I now know how many litres of water my office goes through a year (12,000), how many cups of tea that is (80,000) and how many that is a day (307). Useful.

Andrew telling me that other people have told him how good I am. That’s so lovely. I’m glad I’m making a good impression.

The idling event being cancelled tonight. Thank goodness. It’s absolutely freezing.

Drag Race All Stars. Ugh, so good.

Going for a walk around the park in the sun at lunchtime.

Spending a lot of the day chatting to Adam and Libby. No managers, no ‘adults’.

Coming home and sewing. Finally. I’ve been wanting to do it for days.

BOW website is live! It’s happening.

Two nice meetings. One drinking coffee and walking around the park, mainly just getting to know each other. And one with two cool architects designing a fun project I want to do.

Dinner with Jana. In a beautiful Japanese restaurant.

Another good upcycling workshop. Such fun easy money.

Alec coming along and making a flower. And then going to the pub together and having lots of chat. And celeb spotting.

Heaps and heaps of custard.

Getting some projects. And the freedom to think of creative new ideas for them.

The Darkest Hour. UP YER BUM!

Hair.

Working at the swish and hanging out with Jen. It was such an easy job. And nice to chat to people for a few hours whilst doing some sewing.

Seeing Matt in the evening. I like Matt.

Stuart reading MVO to me when we got home.

Morning sex.

The whole team chatted about stupid shit like coffee and cheese. Felt like a bit of bonding.

He met my friends and it was fine!


Being out and about in the world, having a job for a day.

Having dinner with Rosie. Talking about depression and anxiety and jobs and just having a nice evening. 

Coming home to a few minutes of pencil dick chat with Lauren and Becky. I love Lauren. 

Werk werk werk werk werk. It’s nice to be useful for a day. 

Lots of lovely messages online about my vagina clothes. Including a sweet one from my dad. So exciting!

He called me his girlfriend. And we just had such a nice evening together. I smiled the whole way home. 

I got a day’s work tomorrow! So glad I asked.

Set up a vagina tshirt shop. Got five orders already. Check it out.

Prahmas. All the food, all the present and, randomly, all the singing. 


Another £150 for chatting to friendly Northern Irish people.

Meeting Fran.

Hanging out with Gusty and Jen. Just like old times.


First day at my new freelancing job. Making time capsules with recycling materials. FUN! Basically being paid to chat to kids, cut up paper and occasionally pick up bits of cardboard.

Probably got paid more today than I’ve ever been paid in one day before.

Jonny’s giant sharpie penis.


Doing better than I thought I would today. An interview down, a lovely description of me to Nick and she wasn’t as bad as yesterday. Maybe I can stick this out.

Shep’s for Jo’s birthday dinner. Delicious korean food!

Telling him about BOW. I didn’t expect him to cry. 


Making friends with Hannah. For the one day we’ll work together. But she’s lovely. We had a really nice, if a little chilly, lunch together.

Being offered another time for the second interview. It’s nice to be chased. And I think I might want it a bit more.

Feeling quietly accomplished today. I took in lunch – a healthy delicious one in. I worked hard. I made another proper dinner (using a whole variety of pans) and then set up an invoice and tax tracker. 


Having someone to message on OKCupid.

Getting things done. When I’m busy I get a bit frantic but I enjoy it. Mostly. Me, Gust and Jen had some good moments today, getting our training ready together.

Ciaran’s story about the woman who drank soap. And wants to feed her kids conkers.


Having a meeting at work where I knew the most. It felt good to be the one that had experience. 

A day of doing things. They were mostly boring things but at least I wasn’t just sat around doing nothing. 

Watching Gavina and Stacey. Too much in the end, but some was funny.


Maybe got a job at WOW. 

Got heaps more Instagram followers after a mention on Buzzfeed (it had some slightly negative repercussions. But also I love that woman who came to my rescue. Bye trolls).

Finally saw Dunkirk. Brilliant, so intense.


Getting an apology and getting my TOIL.

Beers and pizza with Jonny.

An evening slightly drunk shower. Warm soft feet and sweet smelling skin in bed afterwards.


A headless flasher on the way to work.

A fun day at the office. Fun conversations, everyone was happy, I was working on things that I knew about. It was good.

Dinner with Liv. A possible plan for the campsite. 


Having a dog snooze on my bed. I miss having a dog around.

A better day at work. Calmer, more productive, less ‘I can’t even’.

Watched the slow mo video of Alec opening the prosecco again. Still makes me laugh.


Weird, bizarre but strangely entertaining acrobatic theatre. With a penguin mask.

Funny lunchtime. We haven’t all sat together in ages so it was nice. And the crossword wasn’t too bad for a change. Plus we all bullied each other which was fun.

Being back in the office, catching up with people, talking about Anna with Gust. 


Pizza and beer at Crate to welcome home Bivan.

The sky as we came home.

Doing a pretty good job at my training in Leytonstone. I’m proud of myself. 

Coming home to see that Jonny had left my room looking immaculate. Minimalist mates forever.

Getting the budget. Or a bit of it at least.

Facemasks and vulvas.


Impromptu easter egg hunt at work this morning.

Feeling back on track with Hannah

Yoga. For the first time in a long time. And feeling so blissed. There was a moment of just pure joy. Which was made even better because when I first arrived I was pissed that it was a yoga teacher I previously didn’t like. But it was a really great class. Must. Be. More. Open minded.


Boobs song from Jen. “My vagina… Which is somewhere on my stomach”

Getting the report done. Almost there.

A night with Matt, watching pottery and doing online dating on the sofa.
