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!

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…

Tis the season of the 30s

It has been a little while since I've blogged. Not for any particular reason other than I have been stupidly busy with life and work. Those of you who read my blog regularly had the joy of having to witness me going through a roller coaster few months. The good news is that the roller coaster has stopped, I have survived the ride and I am looking forward to stepping on to the next few fairground attractions! Thank you to everyone who propped me up and supported me along the way!

We are getting into the difficult time of the year now. November. Ugh, how I hate November with a passion. The only positive is that my job is so busy it keeps me distracted from all the tough days and the month moves faster than any other month of the year.

This year, the November lull has arrived in mid-October. Two of my friends turn 30 at the start of November. My little sister should be turning 30 in early November also. Today I was ordering cards and getting together their gifts for their birthdays an…

Happy 30th birthday Marguerite

Dear Marguerite,
In an alternative reality we are preparing ourselves for the weekend of a lifetime this weekend, you turn 30 on Friday! Whoop! Happy birthday little sister! Where have the years gone? I have no doubt that we would be hitting a European city for a few cocktails and a spa weekend or I would be back in Ireland for a party to end all parties. If there was one thing you could do by the tender age of 17 it was throw a party. 
I wish more than anything that we could have that weekend together. A weekend of gossip, of laughter and probably over indulgence. No doubt you would still disapprove of my style, my ability to put on make up and my hair. No doubt your insistence on getting ready for a few hours would still drive me insane. 
I often wonder what your life is like in that alternative reality. Are you a wife? Are you a mum? Are you a career driven woman with plans of world domination? Are you a wanderer with an insatiable lust to see all the world and explore it's wo…
