It’s been a month since I last wrote a blog and a lot has happened within that time. Some good, some bad, some both. I have learnt a lot over this past month, particularly over the last couple of weeks.A selection of sad events as well as events which whilst not sad were less than … Continue reading Tsunami
We are at the half way point of 2021 and how are we looking? On New Years Eve last year I wrote myself a letter to my future self to open on New Years this year, and I have been trying to remember what I wrote to myself to try and gauge how I’m doing. … Continue reading It Takes Time.
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.

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
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
