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!

Turning 28.

Well. It happened. I turned 28. You know, ignoring a manic depression which lasted all of 20 minutes, I'm pretty ok with it. Rather than shy away from the fact that 30 is just around the corner, I've decided to confront it. Head on. "How?" I hear you ask. Well I have decided to celebrate the final years of being a twenty-something by embarking on a '30 things to do before I'm 30' challenge. I've been working on it for weeks. My friends here in Edinburgh have been really encouraging and I think together we have compiled a pretty mega list. Here we go (in no particular order)
1)Read the BBC top 100 books
2)Bungee jump (I should mention here I'm afraid of heights)
3)Go zorbing
4)Learn a new language
5)Visit the Sistine Chapel
6)Make a quilt (I've always wanted to. I blame Winona Ryder)
7)Visit Tiffani in Utah
8)Parachute Jump with Agata

9)Raise money for charity
10)Do the Great Scottish Run (ugh. The idea pains me.)
11)Sell something I've created
12) Publish somet…

Life of Lu 7/6/2012

I love Edinburgh.
I think you should know.
I love it truly.
Every day I feel more settled.
Every week I feel new friendships grow deeper.
I really am content.
So content that I sing. Poorly.
I should apologise for that.I really like my new job.
Sometimes I feel my head may explode with information.
Then it digests and I feel capable again.
It is nice to use my brain again.
It does help that I have wonderful colleagues.
They make it easy to love the job.
I will be working with them for at least 7 more weeks.
Then I finish my training.
After that... who knows?Euro 2012 fever has taken over our wee flat.
It bores me terribly but the boy loves it,
so I pretend.
I pretend quite well.
I predict Russia to win. He reckons Portugal.
I hope I win! I have a new cousin! And one on the way.
I wish I could meet them soober than October.
Hurry up October!
I should mention that we're popping over in October.
Pints? Anyone?Lastly,
I received an amazing gift at the weekend.
A tea gift box!
I love …

2020

I have started this blog post four times now.
I think that is a new record for my procrastination.
I didn't do a New Year blog, and my previous versions of this were a look back on 2019.
I'll be very honest, I don't want to look back on 2019.
I want to put it in a box, and seal it away forever.

There were some fabulous moments. Of course there were! I got engaged to the most wonderful man I have ever known. I witnessed the weddings of some of my best friends. Babies were born. There was an abundance of soft play, cuddles and karaoke.

For me, 2019 will mostly remind me of being ill. It was a huge part of the year. The worry consumed me for the majority of the latter half. I now know more about hypertension, blood pressure, kidney function and kidney failure than I ever thought necessary.

It sucks being ill. It sucks knowing that you have an illness that will never go away. It doesn't feel fair. If I am very honest with myself I went into a little bit of a pity pit for a w…
