, ten things I'm thankful of
I haven’t done one of these in a couple of months. I’ve been so busy with so many things I haven’t had time, so excuse my absence.
For starters, thank you to my wonderful partners. They have been amazing as always and they put up with me being a dick.
Thank you to my family. I’ve gone back up to Scotland for a couple of weeks and as well as spending time with them, I have been able to fuss baby owls.
Thank you to the NHS, because they have been pumping me full of painkillers and medication whilst I have been on and off ill.
Thank you to the random stranger who asked me to do a review in exchange for a free e-copy of there book. Whilst I didn’t like it personally, it was still a great offer and I appreciate it.
Its difficult because the rest of the news hasn’t been great lately, especially with the terrible result of the EU vote. So I would like to thank the people who actually voted to remain. We tried.
Thank you to all the people who will be affected by this news. Thank you to all the people of colour for putting up with this shit news. The members of Europe who live here and are now getting abuse. I’m sorry that you are getting abuse. You don’t deserve this.
Thank you to the people who have supported me lately when things got shit.
And finally thank you to all my readers. Without you, I am nothing

I spent a long time not wanting to write about the EU vote. I wanted people to educate themselves as to why we needed to stay, but alas I woke up this morning to the news that we have left the EU.
It hurts because the people who voted for us to leave are the people its not really going to affect or people who have been lied to.
The moment we got the news on the exit, wanker Farage backtracked and denied that they said that £350 million could go to the NHS. The moment that it was called the pound suddenly fell. In under 24 hours, the country fucked its own currency.
The leave campaign was based on lies, fears and racism. We are not going to get our jobs back, we are not going to get our money back. Those immigrants you have been bitching about, didn’t choose to live in this shit hole of a country, they had to. They have been doing the jobs we don’t want to do.
We had maternity leave, sick leave, holiday pay and actual work laws to stop discrimination and unfair dismissal because of the EU. Those jobs you have been fighting for, no longer care about your health and well being. Hell they are probably going to be sold on overseas.
Violence towards people of colour and queer people have and will continue to rise. UK born POC have been assaulted and abused because right wing cunts think they shouldn’t be in their country. Guess what, white people are not the only people who have a right to be here.
I’ve already had to unfriend and block a few people who I considered as friends. Not because they voted to leave but the racist bullshit they spewed after “they won”. No one fucking won, the people who are happy about this are the people who fucked our country up in the first place.
Now Cameron has resigned (which is the only fucking plus to this) we are going to be stuck with Boris. That stupid idiot is going to be running what remains of this place. Scotland wants out, Northern Ireland will want out, and I don’t blame them. Boris couldn’t even run London let alone the rest of the UK.
Within the next few days and weeks we will finally find out how this is going to pan out for us, but until then stay safe people. This is going to be a bumpy ride.
