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!

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

January

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?
