On a day when I have seen more posts titled “freedom never felt so good” than I would ever have liked to have done, I am not feeling the same buzz of excitement that everyone else seems to be fully embracing. Quite the opposite. The last couple of weeks have been difficult for me and … Continue reading Are Happy Endings a Myth?
If you are reading this, chances are you know me, even if it’s just to the level of having read a few of my blog posts. Maybe even all of them if you have stamina. In either case, I thank you for sticking around. I really enjoy writing this blog so I appreciate you taking … Continue reading Love and Other Stuff
I wrote my last post just before the turn of the new year asking you all to be unequivocally yourselves in 2021. I asked you to embrace the real you and all that weird-ass shit that you do. On this same path, over this last month I, like many others I suspect, have been watching … Continue reading A Lesson in Being Yourself
As per usual I like to write a little something at the end of the year, despite as you know, I am not one for the “New year, new me” nonsense and I have already done a post about looking back throughout this year to find the things that we are grateful for. However, I … Continue reading Behind Your Mask
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 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
As we throw ourselves into August, I have to say it’s been an interesting couple of weeks for me. I’m taking a few weeks off of dating. I realised it wasn’t sparking joy so Marie Kondo style, I got rid. I have taken some learnings from it, as I endeavour to with all that I … Continue reading Tinder, Trauma and Tree Stumps
I actually wondered whether it would be grammatically okay to start this with the word ‘ergh’. For someone with an English degree, my grammar is really quite appalling (technically it’s English Literature so I can read really well...). Answer? No. It’s not even a word, which is unfortunate considering it sums up so easily how … Continue reading A Little Bit of Ergh.
