Three years and counting!!!!

This weekend 3 years ago James and I started seeing each other.
How exciting!
The reason I say this weekend is because our actual anniversary is the 29th February.
Which doesn't exist this year,
so we decided to have an anniversary weekend to celebrate!

It all started in Vilnius, Lithuania.

I was travelling through Eastern Europe and after a very long journey arrived at my hostel.
Which at the time was going under the name of VB Sleep Inn.
I remember being really tired and cranky after my 12 hour bus journey from Vilnius and 
when I arrived at the hostel there was this man sprawled on the floor of my dorm asleep.
Little did I know as I cursed him for being in my way that I would be dating him six months later!

Anyhow....
To fast forward a few months....
I started to suspect that James had a crush on me...
Like the time he dragged me across the dancefloor...

But he denied it, so I ignored it...
Then people started to comment on what a lovely couple we made...
even though we weren't a couple...




Then one evening....
We realised that we have a lot in common

and
we kissed and decided to give things a go 
to see if anything happened...
We tried (poorly) to keep it all a secret
But
Everyone knew.

Very quickly.
Which became very apparent when we went away with friends for a weekend.
And they kept calling us boyfriend and girlfriend
despite our constant denials

So we came clean...
And shouted it from the rooftops.
And danced in the street 
because we were so happy

Soon the time came to pack up and leave.
So we came to Galway
and settled down for a while.
We made some new friends

Got some new jobs 
and settled into the world of boyfriend-girlfriend.
It has been a great world!
Full of fun

.Full of travel

Full of romance

Full of strange sightings
Like flying cows

And plastic children that look like they could be our children

But the thing we've had most of all over the  past three years.
Is cake.
Definitely cake





But hey,
Three years is definitely worth celebrating.
So, here is to more cake!

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…
