27!!! How did that happen?

I am very well aware that age is just a number. I am also very aware that you are as young as you feel. I am also aware that the more saucy of you out there believe that you are as young as the man you feel - as this suits my needs most I think I will go with this line of thought for a while.

Now 27.

What do we know about 27?

Well the number itself is the number that follows 26 and precedes 28. Simple. Nothing too horrid there.
But the age, well that is a different story.
Now I am reaching the territory of  "Oh! Nearly 30!" -say this to me and I may kick you. Be warned.
And let's not forget "So! Will we be getting a big day out of you soon? You're pushing on!" - again, say it at your peril.
But surely there has to be something MEGA that came out of this dismal number.
So I went exploring.
And at first the results weren't exactly heartwarming. 

I learned that these people died aged 27.





 
That really wasn't a good start...
But then I remembered...
There is a song I really like by the band Biffy Clyro called... you guessed it! 27
And in Bingo
 the number 27 is called GATEWAY TO HEAVEN

There are other cool facts too...

There are 27 moons that orbit Uranus
There are 27 letters in the Hebrew alphabet

So does anyone have any cool facts about 27?
I would love to know them.

  3. 27 is a perfect cube! 3 x 3 x 3

    Also, 27 cubed (so 27 x 27 x 27) is 19,683. 1 + 9 + 6 + 8 + 3 = 27!

Let's talk about mental health

I must admit I am a little bit nervous about writing this blog today.
I am afraid that I will get a little too emotional when writing about a topic that is very close to my heart.
I will apologise now for if I ramble or get lost in a stream of consciousness. I hope you can make sense of what I am about to write.

This week, another life was lost to the tragedy that is suicide. I should correct myself, a famous life was lost to suicide. I have no doubt that this week, many families around the world are grieving and trying to figure out why one of their own has taken their own life.

The reason that I want to write this post is simply down to the number of horrible and ignorant comments that I have read on social media about Chester Bennington's death. For me, it highlighted the lack of understanding of mental health in this day and age.

I'm going to take you back on a wee journey with me and tell you why this is such a personal topic and why I feel that it needs to be spoken abou…

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…

Moving on.

I realised something the other day. That is not nearly specific enough or dramatic enough for this story. Let me start again...
I had a startling realisation the other day. I think Scotland and I are starting to go our separate ways (and I am not talking about Brexit) I was in Glasgow a few weeks ago, and I went on a tourist bus tour. I actually went on it twice, and I loved it. I got to see all the attractions I have wanted to see over the years: The Cathedral, the Necropolis, The Transport Museum, The People's Palace. It was very similar to something I did just before I left Edinburgh, my own little way of saying goodbye. When I got on the train home, I realised that in my own wee way, I was saying goodbye to Glasgow. Other than a course there on the 11th of May, I have no idea when I am going to be there next. I have no gigs booked, my upcoming flights to Ireland are all from Edinburgh.  I feel rather sad that my attachment to Glasgow has severed. In my head it was where I would…
