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!

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…
