Today I’ve decided to reignite my blogging life! Writing is something I really enjoy, but it’s not easy. I am dyslexic, and while the words might flow from my head in a steady stream, when I read them back they are often jumbled and riddled with mistakes. Comments like ‘You should have proof-read this’ were common in my academic life, even though I re-read everything I write at least three times. Those mistakes have been a source of embarrassment and shame.
Today I’m giving myself permission not to care. I’ll still proof read everything, and hope that the odd mistake won’t distract to much from your pleasure in reading.
It’s brilliant to be back and sharing my life in making with you. Thank you so much for being here.

Looking forward to reading more from you, Leigh! I’m not good at commenting but I still enjoy reading them on Feedly.
And who cares about spelling mistakes on personal blogs 🙂
