Life of Lu 30/05/11

Hey there folks!
It is that time of the week again!
I've just realised that it has been a whole week since I last wrote a blog.
That is very slack on my behalf.
I promise to do better!
So what has happened in the last week.

Well most of it has been consumed with sickness I'm afraid. I've been pretty flippin' sick. And I'm still not fully better though I am starting to feel more alive.

 I'm not the best patient in the world, but thankfully I have SUPER housemates who have really taken care of me with lashings of tea and hot water bottles. Thanks guys!


Today however was quite an adventure!
I had the day off work and went to post an over due parcel to my lovely friend Tif
My house mate Joey came with me.
On our journey we met a boy.
He was drinking this



Apparently he had bought it in Galway.
Sick stomach or no I had to find the supplier of this delicious cherry cola flavoured delight.
So he directed us to a brand spanking new shop on Abbeygate Street that sells lots of sweeties.

And these

I have never been so excited about some chocolate in my life!
Now, the Tim Tams are ridiculously expensive.
About 4euro a pop.
But as a treat once in a while I think that can be justified.
They're frickin' Tim Tams!!!

At the moment, our life is revolving about the thing of nightmares.
If you've done it, you've probably dreamt of it.
You know what I'm talking about!

The Leaving Cert!
My nightmare is always about Maths Paper Two.
Strangely, it is the paper I've been able to help James with the most.
Weird huh?

So, we've had to accept that until these exams are over romance is more or less dead.
But never fear
It has been replaced.
By this

Next Tuesday is Leaving Cert Eve.
I will be quite curious to find out what I have to say then!!
Have a good week guys!

  2. I feel much better today thanks!
    Yay!
    I hope you like your parcel... it was wedding orientated so you must forgive the pointlessness of some of the items now that you are married!!
    It is REALLY hard to get cherry cola over here... I go on a serious cherry cold overload when I go to the UK. I love the stuff! Hence my excitement at the can of wild cherry pepsi!

12 years and counting....

It is that time of the year again, my sister's anniversary. 12 years since we bid her farewell.
Well, tomorrow is her anniversary but I am having a very lazy morning and as a result I am writing this today.

For the past 11 years, the entire month of November has been a struggle for me.
In the beginning it was a raw struggle. Every single day from the 10th (her birthday) to the 29th (her anniversary) was like a hot blade slicing through my heart.
I think it is because the loneliness of not having her with us to celebrate her birthday is intensified by the fact that her anniversary is so close, and there is an awareness and an emotional surge in the three weeks between that just lingers in my subconscious.
Now, I definitely do become very low for those three weeks, but it is much easier to bounce out of it as we approach the anniversary and I realise that my irrationality of the last three weeks was simply bottled up emotion from the remaining 49 weeks of the year.

This year was a t…

The day I got a little sister.

Last night, as I got the bus home from work, I got really choked up as the clock turned midnight. Perhaps because I'd been checking product dates all day, I was painfully aware of what date I was stepping into, or perhaps because I had just returned from a trip to Ireland I was painfully aware of it all. I don't know. It's not important.

When I went to bed last night, I started to think about my sister a little more. A lot more. I remember the day she was born. Isn't that weird? I was only 3 years old but I remember. Mam was on the phone from the hospital to Da, and he asked my brother and I if we wanted to speak to our mammy. Naturally we both jumped at the chance to say hi. Our telephone at the time was in the hallway and was a few feet from the ground, so my brother and I had to stand on a chair to speak into it. As the eldest I went first and gushed and oohed as I thought was appropriate. I hopped off my chair and gave the floor to my brother. I was unprepared for…

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…
