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!

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…

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…

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…
