I have been thinking a lot recently about the good parts of this year and, in part, I feel like this is because I have had to for my sanity’s sake. Come towards the end of December we all tend to get a little bit nostalgic and wonder what exciting things the new year will … Continue reading From Tier-d to Grateful
I read something today which annoyed me. It’s not a new thing to annoy me, but its re-sparked annoyance in me. An online newspaper article which was in regards to the increasing number of men using rough sex as an excuse, defence and get out of jail free card for murdering women. I won’t go … Continue reading The Sex Defence
Lately, I have been obsessed. A woman possessed with a mission. ‘A mission’ you say? Yes. A Mission. Not a death defying, James Bond epic mission but a mission none the less. I, Leah, am stopping my non-apologetic ass from saying Sorry. All. The. Time. I don’t know if it is just because it was … Continue reading Sorry Seems To Be The … Easiest Word?
Picture the scene. It’s two in the morning. Storm Francis is ‘blowing a hooley’ as they say. I am stood watching it. I had just had a weird dream which had included an ex-partner of mine. Not a recent one, but one from about 12 years ago. He’d come to see me in hospital and … Continue reading Breaking the Blockers

No. It’s not even a word, which is unfortunate considering it sums up so easily how … Continue reading A Little Bit of Ergh.
I needed to write something as I have really struggled these last couple of weeks, and from what I have heard I am not the only one, even if we are all struggling for different reasons. My brain has been like Tigger. On speed. And then cocaine. (Can you tell I have zero concepts of … Continue reading Positively Anxious
Well, apparently, we are starting to see a light and the end of this locked down tunnel. I say apparently, seeing as things are opening back up and if social media is anything to go by, not a lot of people are bothering with social distancing anymore. I’m not judging you if you’ve indulged … Continue reading Learning in Lockdown
Well. Apparently we all upset 2020. I am not sure what we did to hurt you, but we are sorry and you can calm down now. We get it. I have written a blog post numerous times over the last two disastrous months and nothing I wrote was ever able to say what I wanted … Continue reading Sorry, 2020.
What a year it has been! It feels like it has been a very quick one – nearly over in the blink of an eye. Apparently, this is how it goes as you get older – each year running quicker and quicker. Not an overly comforting thought but I do think it reinforces the need … Continue reading And the clock struck 12
