Yay! It is eurovision time!

Eurovision brings out a strangeness in all of us.
Six months ago people threw their eyes up to heaven if they heard the name Jedward
Now they swell with pride 
Well done boys!

Here is hoping Jedward do us proud this Saturday night! 
They were great at the semi-final! (See below)

If you want to know the words
then these are for you...

You say you're on it but you just don't know 
You're spending money like you're on death row 
You must be mis-educated 
By all the guys that you've dated 
You think I'll take the bait but I don't think so 

Am I headed for a car crash? 
Just about to meet my match, she takes the 
I'm about to fall in head first 
Sisters let me tell you how it works 


She's got her lipstick on 
Here I come, da da dum 
She's got her lipstick on 
Hit and run, then I'm gone 
Check my collar, collar, hey, hey, ey 
Check my collar, collar, hey, hey, ey 

Oooohh, Oooohh 

You look at me and I got you in mind 
I come on over see what I could find 
No appetite for delusion 
How can I win when I'm losin' 
You're saying yes when it is no, no, no, no 

Am I headed for a car crash? 

Just about to meet my match, she takes the 
I'm about to fall in head first 
Sisters let me tell you how it works 

(CHORUS x2) 

It's not that I don't wanna play (play, play) 
And then I didn't look your way (way, way) 
It's not like every girl's the same (same, same) 
You gotta know just how to treat this miss 
Or she will be dismissed 


(CHORUS x2) 

Here I come 
Here I come 
dum da dum da dum da dum 

Hit and run 
Hit and run 
dum da dum da dum da dum 

Then I'm gone 
Then I'm gone 
Gone, gone, gone, gone

Irelande douze points s'il vous plait!

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 …


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…
