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

and 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!

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…
