Life of Lu 28/06/11

- I read a little piece during the week called an empty jar and two cups of coffee. I posted it on here almost as soon as I read it. Well it got me thinking about priorities and what not. So I've spent the past few days evaluating  things and I have reached some conclusions and formulated some mega plans.
-I want to begin a whole "lets be real neighbours and drop in to each other" thing with my mate Eibhlin. She lives next door and shamefully I have NEVER been to her house, nor she mine.
-I'm going to start spending more time with my grandmother. She doesn't live that far away and I haven't been making enough time for her. She is a super super lady, and unfortunately the first time I've spoken to her in about two months was tonight from her hospital bed. Why is it that it takes something like that to give you the kick up the bum that she should never in all honesty have needed to do something.
One of the perks of visiting my grandmother is that I get to spend time with all my little cousins.
Like these guys







-I'm going to be a better letter writer. I don't mean that I am going to practice the content of my letters I mean I am going to improve the frequency of my letters. I am so good at writing them but so terrible at sending them! I have my wonderful friend David's letter in my handbag as I write with a stamp on it and everything! I WILL post it tomorrow. Yes. I will. If you would like a letter send me your address and I will write to you too. In the hope that I get one back of course. I love opening and reading letters! 
- I have started getting up at six am and walking the prom. It is tough but I am really falling in love with it. I am also 3 whole days off cigarettes. But this is a secret. Not a secret in that I don't want you to know. But a secret in that I don't want you to mention it around me. EVER. It is like those stop smoking ads on the television. Have you ever actually watched one? For someone who is fighting the cravings it is a killer. They show you slow-mo shots of someone lighting up and exhaling with a total look of euphoria on their face while drinking a cup of coffee or something similar that goes perfectly with a cigarette. Or they'll have an ex-smoker talking about how much they loved smoking (which I will openly admit I love too) before they quit. It is horrid! It just makes me want to smoke more! Has anyone else ever felt this way?? Ever?? 
- I also want to rekindle some friendships that I have left to simmer out a little. I think it is important to spring clean your friend closet every now and then, but sometimes you just have to rearrange it. That is one of my jobs this summer. Re-arranging all those hanging friends. Gosh, that sounded way more morbid than intended! Whoops!
-I have decided that some things are being down graded from pebbles to sand.
Do you want to know what they are?
You might laugh a little if I tell you.\
1) Money. My wages cover my healthcare, rent and food. I don't think I should be worrying about anything else. I'm tired of worrying about money. So I'm not going to anymore.
2) Work. I know it pays the aforementioned necessities but I am done with worrying about it. I work to live, I don't live to work. It is time that I start to remember that.
3) Worrying in general. Meh. What is the point. I'm only stressing myself out.

-To finish on a more fun note! Last Saturday we had a little session for our little student.
I made him a cake that fell to pieces but tasted yummy! And we had a lovely little group of friends over to share in the fun. The camera came out in the early hours of the morning so you'll have to forgive the resulting photos. But it was a fun night so I'm going to give you a sneak peek. I'll even show you my dodgy cake! Enjoy until next week!

Missing Marguerite. 14 years later.

On this day, 14 years ago, the world lost a little bit of its magic, when at 11pm, my little sister took her final breath and life changed as we all knew it. She was only 17 years old. 17 years and 19 days to be exact. As I sat here today reading all the lovely messages written about her, my heart soared with pride in the fact that in her short time with us, she managed to have such a big impact on so many people. Marguerite Mary O'Dwyer, an ambassador for mischief, mockery and for having a marvellous time. I miss her so much.

It is funny how every year there is something different that I focus on for the anniversary. I never choose my train of thought, I think the year since the last anniversary chooses it for me. Last night, I got fairly plastered on wine and when my other half went to his bed, I sat and sang along to every sad song I could think of. I had a wee chat with Mags before I went to bed and woke up this morning well rested and ready to seize the day. 
I got quite sad a…

Not many people are aware of it, but I had a bit of a health scare last week. I went for a regular 15 minute check up with my GP and spent the following 5 days in hospital going through every test imaginable to man. I am still in the middle of tests but the prognosis is so far positive and I have been allowed home for rest which is fabulous, but good god did I get a fright. And if I am honest I'm not sure Stuart is quite right after it all either!


I have been joking how I would love a good old MOT (NCT for the Irish amongst us), for a while now. They say mocking is catching, and I have fairly gone through the MOT process this last week. Oh boy has it been a fast week! In that time I have had more blood taken than was shed in the Game of Thrones. My hand is so bruised it looks like I have my first tan! I have seen my pancreas, liver, kidneys and an ovary (very cool scan if I say so myself!), I have had my pee collected in little buckets/bottles for 24hrs, and I have pretty much eith…

It has been a long, long time since I have written a blog post.
I don't know why, it has taken me so long, nor shall I apologise for it.
I could give you a thousand excuses and reasons, but I guess the main reason is that I didn't feel like I had an awful lot to say!

That is not true, I always have a lot to say. The topics that have been on my mind however are quite emotive (mostly Brexit related, and let's be honest we have read and heard more than enough about that shite), and it is very difficult to write something when you yourself don't even understand how you feel about it.

For me it is mostly disappointment, and nobody wants to read a whole blog piece about me feeling disappointed. So tonight, I am writing a much more positive one. I am writing some thankfuls.
I have spent the last few months reading and writing. I have spent some time with my family back in Ireland, and spent some wonderful time with Stuart, his family and my friends here in Aberdeen. I was ref…
