I'm going to be honest.
I've been really bad updating this baby for the past few weeks.
Really bad!
But I am here now.
That is what is important.

This week has been mental. James and I are well on our way to being ex-smokers. I took the plunge first and James is following suit. Though I will admit that he is finding it worse than I am at the moment. Simply because he has gone on patches and I have gone cold turkey. Seeing what the patches is doing to his body is quite scary to be honest. It drives it home better than any advert what nicotine does to the body. That is not to say that I will ever stop loving it! But the time has come to stop this phase of my life.


The weather here has been mega!
So warm and there is really sunshine! In Galway! Miraculous!
So we've been taking advantage of it.
Forgive the grainy photos. I took them with my phone.





Embarrassingly I'm not wearing white leggings in this one.
These are my pasty white legs!





There were so many pretty flowers around too!



And James found a scooter to play with...


And Siobhan and I found cake.


My walk to work introduced me to some wonderful window displays


But the best thing I found this week?
A mysterious blue couch...
Fabulous!

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?
