often people say to me…

https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/l-ash1 Often people say to me: "Oh, you're brave." It's said lightly, off the cuff but, nevertheless, with some kind of courageous non-gendered machoness about it. I run in the winter?! Yes. Yes, I do. But this is not called brave. There is no bravery in spending 30 minutes out on the road in 2°C... Continue Reading →


i got it!

So I didn't actually think that self-respect was too hard to have. It shouldn't be that difficult and I actually believed that I had a lot of it. I think I did... ...but maybe just not as much as I feel like I have now. It seems crazy and ridiculous (typical me) to suggest that... Continue Reading →

something is happening…

So I didn't really know what 30 days without shaving would bring but I was hoping for some kind of angst-y energy that screamed: F*** THE PATRIACHY! Instead what has happened is something a lot more mild, gentle and kind. And it's towards the women. I've now been shaver-free (yes, my obsession with hair grooming... Continue Reading →

I could have asked myself that... Continue Reading →

Clueless Worker Bee

By 9am I was already thinking that the cheese bagel I had in my bag would be the best part of my day. I was hot. Boiling, in fact. Sweating through my cotton shirt lugging my 10kg HP laptop over the hills of North London, onto a crowded tube and through St Paul's churchyard. There's... Continue Reading →

If You Only Go to Church Once …

Oh goodness! It's Sunday and that meant only 1 thing for me: church time! I absolutely love going to church so much (which potentially sounds strange for everyone that doesn't go to church, but just about right for everyone that does). I love it. Love it, love it, love it! But I didn't always. I... Continue Reading →


Yas! So here I am again, another month down. I can't even believe that it's September. It's insane but also so awesome because autumn is 100% my favourite season ever and though I love the summer, I'm in love with the autumn. Yeah, that kind of love. So so much has happened for me this... Continue Reading →
