My favourite characters

I was thinking this morning about books.
Not so much about books, more about the main characters.
Some of them I have loved, some of them I have loathed (but loved because I loathed them so much), and others I have just never believed in enough to care either way.
So I'm going to list five of my favourite characters.
If I can choose five!
Click on the pictures for more info.
Here goes:

1)Heathcliff

I don't know why I love him so much.
He is a horrible, horrible man who destroys three young lives to get his revenge on his foes.
But I always find myself defending his actions as understandable, which they obviously aren't.
Hmmmm.... Heathcliff...

2) Professor Snape



I have always loved the character of Snape in Harry Potter. Then book seven was written and I fell in love with the character even more. I don't want to ruin the story for those who haven't read it so I won't go into details, but I loved it, I loved how Snape's personality was fleshed out, and I loved his reasons for being the character he was.

3) Edward Cullen


I think every girl who has read Twilight has a love for Edward. Every girl who has watched the movies and not read the book has a love for Jacob. I am an Edward girl. I loved the Twilight books but I'm not at all a fan of the movies. Edward Cullen is I guess every girls perfect gent.
He is kind, compassionate, very hot (!), vulnerable, and protective. Why wouldn't you love? I wouldn't be overly struck on the idea of someone (especially a boy) being able to read my thoughts, or wanting my blood I guess, but other than that I love him!


4) Akkarin


Akkarin is a character from the Black Magician series by Trudi Canavan (click picture for link).
Looking at the characters I've already picked I guess I love the underdog and Akkarin is most definitely that. I would highly recommend this series of books to any avid reader. They are the series that led me to the belief that not all fantasy sucks!


5) Edmund



Edmund from the play King Lear is a great character.
He makes the play in my opinion!
Again, the underdog but he is like the Heathcliff of the play I guess.


Now, my leg is cramping so I have to go.
I have enjoyed this!

Let's talk about mental health

I must admit I am a little bit nervous about writing this blog today.
I am afraid that I will get a little too emotional when writing about a topic that is very close to my heart.
I will apologise now for if I ramble or get lost in a stream of consciousness. I hope you can make sense of what I am about to write.

This week, another life was lost to the tragedy that is suicide. I should correct myself, a famous life was lost to suicide. I have no doubt that this week, many families around the world are grieving and trying to figure out why one of their own has taken their own life.

The reason that I want to write this post is simply down to the number of horrible and ignorant comments that I have read on social media about Chester Bennington's death. For me, it highlighted the lack of understanding of mental health in this day and age.

I'm going to take you back on a wee journey with me and tell you why this is such a personal topic and why I feel that it needs to be spoken abou…

Life of Lu - thankfuls 10/09/2017

Today is the first official day of my holidays from work, and truth be told they couldn't come at a better time. I am tired, exhausted even and full of doubt about what my future holds for a number of reasons. So, I thought to myself, what a perfect time to write a list of thankfuls to remind me of all the truly wonderful things I have in my life.

1. I am thankful for my team at work. I have a store team of about 50 and a management team of 6. I don't particularly enjoy talking about work online, as it isn't really appropriate but I am so thankful for my team. Every day they are a fountain of support, and their enthusiasm never ceases to amaze me. They are my reason for going to work every day, and I count my lucky stars that I have been given the team that I have. They make the tough days better and the good days great.

2. I am thankful for my Cambridge Consultant, Claire. 4 weeks ago I started on a rather scary journey of self improvement. I found Claire, spoke to her ab…

Moving on.

I realised something the other day. That is not nearly specific enough or dramatic enough for this story. Let me start again...
I had a startling realisation the other day. I think Scotland and I are starting to go our separate ways (and I am not talking about Brexit) I was in Glasgow a few weeks ago, and I went on a tourist bus tour. I actually went on it twice, and I loved it. I got to see all the attractions I have wanted to see over the years: The Cathedral, the Necropolis, The Transport Museum, The People's Palace. It was very similar to something I did just before I left Edinburgh, my own little way of saying goodbye. When I got on the train home, I realised that in my own wee way, I was saying goodbye to Glasgow. Other than a course there on the 11th of May, I have no idea when I am going to be there next. I have no gigs booked, my upcoming flights to Ireland are all from Edinburgh.  I feel rather sad that my attachment to Glasgow has severed. In my head it was where I would…
