St. Patrick's Day!

I know I'm a bit late posting a St. Patrick's Day piece,
two days in fact
but I am a believer in better late than never!

I really enjoyed St. Patrick's day this year.
I was really conscious of the fact that it was my last Paddy's day here for what will be a long time.
So I tried to embrace the whole day as much as I could!

This year we are living just above the parade route so I had a great viewing point from our bedroom window!

I really enjoyed the parade.
It was so vibrant and so full of colour!

With some traditional Irish images thrown in between

And I saw so many leprechauns!

Some of the buildings also got into the Paddy's day spirit

There were street performers drawing in crowds

Balloons galore

and some random visitors to the city

And thought of those in need

The best thing about St. Patrick's day
spending it with my favourite person


Happy St. Patrick's Day Everyone!

Lá Fhéile Pádraig shona daoibh!!

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

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 we


I found out yesterday that I was one of the winners of the photography competition that I entered as one of my 30 before 30. My photograph will now be used in a calender as the January image. How exciting! What do you think?
