I have chosen to call this blog New Leaves for  a number of reasons.

Initially, I was thinking of the name ‘A New Leaf’ but, as so many things in my life are changing and (hopefully) moving forwards, I thought that the plural was more suitable than the singular.

This blog marks a new stage in life for me personally and it is a place where I can be open and honest which I often struggle with. Hence, especially as it is now autumn, it seems like a time where the old leaves of life are being shed and some new leaves are able to grow.
