Colour week! Day 1 - Red!

Red is one of those colours that I don't really pay attention to.
I guess it is because of my red hair...
I never thought I could wear it!
But some of my favourite things are red...


Old Spice!
I know it is the present we buy our Dads and Grandads for Christmas.
Me? I buy it for James! I just love the smell!
I remember him wearing it when we first met.
I was so impressed that he wore it!


My phone box money box
I love it!
It came as part of a gift, I don't remember what was inside.
Now I keep my UK coins in there.
I think there might be a five pound note too!
Whoop!!!

I love my bed!
I love my red sheets!
I love my floral duvet set!
mmmm... sleep....


This is a book that I am reading at the moment.
It was recommended to me by my friend's dad.
It is very witty.
Very much full of puns...
I love it!


I love my scarf!
Though I don't think my scarf loves me...
Generally when I wear it to someones house it stays behind when I leave.
Thank you everyone who has returned it to me safely!


I had to get House in here somewhere!
We've just finished season three.
Which is wonderfully red!


One of my favourite books.
This is the copy given to my by my friend Andy when I went travelling.
Inside I have a log of where the book went and when.
This book has been to Auschwitz, Bosnia, the Dalmation Islands.
It reminds me of some wonderful times
It reflects my sometime longing for a wanderlust life :)



I hope you enjoyed my red Monday!

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…

Life of Lu: Thankfuls 29/10/17

I had a moment yesterday.
I cried.
The tears were unfortunate and a manifestation of forgotten memories and regurgitated feelings from years gone by.
The foundation of those tears were this blog, and the content of this blog.
I sometimes forget that there is a little part of the internet that holds my feelings, my deepest darkest moments and my anxieties, as well as my triumphs, delights and fond memories.
The blog was read, and it's contents had the potential to spoil a very important relationship in my life.
I got upset.
As I said, I cried.
For the first time in many years, I remembered the many people who turned their backs on me not because of anything I had done but because of situations in which I was merely an affected bystander. 
The mind is a wonderful thing in that it can hide these moments from memory. It is also a cruel master who can cut you with these moments when you are at your most vulnerable. At this time of the year I am at my most vulnerable. In reality I will…
