During Menstruation

Fat Fridays: Off the Mark 28.05.2021

This week has been challenging, though it started well. History came zapping through my phone and pinging on WhatsApp with a ‘Hey, Unique…’ the innocence of the opening-line opened up that tiny door in my heart. Then blasted through with a missile, forcing my eyes to focus on reality. In short? There is no short.Continue reading “Fat Fridays: Off the Mark 28.05.2021”
