Colour week! Day 4 Green!

Being Irish I felt I had to go a bit overboard with Day 4!
I had so many wonderful ideas.
And then I realised that I forgot to but a memory card into my camera.
Silly me.
I did however find lots and lots of green today!

For example,
We had spinach with our dinner today.
It went into a lasagne.
Yum yum yum!


Both James and I feel that it is important to relax
and take time to let your mind sort out what is going on after a day of working.
I find that some incense, music and a dim light do wonders for the mind
and the soul.


James got this t-shirt in Lithuania.
It is of one of their national beers.


James' beautiful (and talented) nieces Katie and Emma made some fabulous Christmas cards.
James refuses to take them down.
Aren't the gorgeous!

My friend Erin came to visit us in Lithuania and she brought these mugs with her.
I love them!



The woods in Menlo.
They are so unspoilt, so green and so beautiful!


Our press full of green tea.
I kid you not, we have about 15 boxes of herbal teas.
Ridiculous.


I teach a Polish girl English and this is her homework!
I really should correct it rather than take its photo!



One of my most prized possessions.
.It is one of the symbols of Galway 
and the first gift that James ever bought me.
I love it so much.
The heart symbolizes love
The hands symbolize friendship
and the Crown symbolizes loyalty.
How you wear your ring reflects on your relationship status.


My house is full of maps and atlas' 
James loves them.
It is great as it makes gift buying a lot easier!

I hope you enjoyed the wonderful world of green!

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

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 pit

What is happiness?

Last night, instead of doing my Life of Lu for the week (how bold, never fear, I'll do it after this) I met up with an old friend of mine. It is always  nice to meet up with someone who you can just pick up with as if you met them yesterday. Anyhoo, The conversation got very philosophical as can happen after a couple of cold ones and the question came up "what is happiness?" Profound huh? Well we decided that happiness is not a continuous feeling merely something that happens in a moment and we have to ensure that we get plenty of those moments in our lifetime  for it to seem happy. Deep I know. This is what we came up with as an answer to  What is happiness? -Getting a big hug from someone who puts all their heart into it. -James added the first time his little niece Emma came to sit on his lap for a cuddle (it was the start of a lovely little friendship) -The first time you kiss that person you have dreamt about kissing and it tingles your toes - The moment when you f
