London, wildlife, flowers, vegetables, my allotment star in most of my photos. Oh, and cats, possibly, sometimes, oftentimes

Apologies for the gloom. The stone circle and path foundation are in place. Either side of the path will be deep flower beds Think Dixter (scroll left) . . #urbangarden #urbangardening #flowers #landscapedesign

This is my favourite picture of Wiggins and Mo from when they were kittens. It was taken six years ago today so it pops up annually on FB. They’re much the same today. Wiggins, self-assured and aloof. Mo, a foolish goof . . . #catstagram #wigstagram #catsofinstagram #catsoflondon #blackcatsofinstagram #blackcats #blackcatsrule #rescuecats #batterseacats

Garden update! Stairs are done. Within *seconds* of the builders leaving, Wiggins and Mo walked all over with their muddy paws 🐾 Well done, guys! More fun next week as we move into the gravel path situation. . . . #urbangarden #urbangardener #urbangardening #landscapedesign #landscaper #gardening

It’s my last day working in the Isle of Dogs today before UpRising moves to a new office at Rich Mix in Shoreditch. Looking forward to the new space but will miss my early morning walks. . . . #london #winter #wintersun #wintersunrise #canarywharf #isleofdogs #igerslondon

Beautiful sunshine and long shadows up at the allotment this morning. Planted our new rhubarb crown and did some work laying down weed suppressant fabric in the never-ending Battle of the Couch Grass . . . . #allotmentlife #allotmentuk #allotmentlove #growyourownfood #growyourown #gardening #vegetables #london #lambeth #rhubarb

One of the questions in #yearcompass is Who inspired you in 2018? Well, this absolute hero and sister inspired me in 2018 and always. I’m looking forward to working with her again in 2019. It’s quite clear 2019’s going to need all of us working together harder than ever and that’s exactly what I intend to do. BIG shout out @shaista1465. I’ve got you x

I started my day looking at Michelle 😍 Then had a look back on everything I achieved in 2018, felt good about the good things and let go of the rubbish. And now I feel properly ready to get on with 2019. . . . . #brixton #michelleobama #streetart #yearcompass

The Salt Path by Raynor Winn is the perfect book for New Year’s Day as we turn our faces to the future. I can’t remember who recommended this book to me to read while we were in Lyme Regis over Christmas tackling bits of the South West Coastal Path. Ended up reading Dave Eggers’ What is the What while I was away - also excellent so The Salt Path had to wait. “What would I be, who would I be? I didn’t know, but it was all right not to, the past was on another headland and I was happy to leave it there.” . . . . #southwestcoastpath #swcp #reading #readmore #readmorebooks #walking #hiking #hikingadventures #onefootinfrontoftheother #sea #seaside #dorset #coast

Some fireworks spooked Mo. He came back inside and looked sheepish. Check out his single, white eyebrow 😂 . . . . #catstagram #catsofinstagram #blackcatsofinstagram #catsoflondon

I wanted to do more daily steps this year. I don’t get time before work to go any running any more so walking is my only exercise. Set myself a target of more than 12,000 daily steps. Almost made it to 13,000 but a mid December miserable cold thwarted me. Cant help feeling like a failure for not exceeding a self-imposed target that no one gives a shit about. My 2019 resolution is to try try try to stop setting myself stupid targets. In 2018, I also completed the self-imposed mission to visit all of the EU27 before March 29, 2019. I also beat my target of reading 50 books. I read 54. Plus, turned 50, was elected to public office, raised £1600 in a week to buy a Christmas tree. And zillions of other things. 2019 resolutions: calm the fuck down, grow some flowers, love my friends

Potted up my whole garden a few weeks ago ready for Operation Lucy’s New Garden. Today’s the first chance I’ve had to get out there and check on them. Everything seems to be surviving. Especially the succulents. . . . . #gardening #plants #growyourown #flowers #succulents #urbangardens #landscapedesign #london #stockwell #magicgarden
