Life of Lu 27/07/11

Oh what a week!
Really genuinely!
It was fabulous!

On Friday I met two friends of mine who always but a smile of my face, Maria and Donagh and we went for a sneaky pint to Neachtains which is one of my favourite places in Galway. 
I really enjoyed meeting up with them and I'll be honest it put a big smile on my face to see them both.

Then I got a text from a wonderful friend of mine from home Sarah who I considered an adopted sister for years along with the other scallywag Marie. She too was in Galway with her very lovely other half Rossa who I hadn't met before. So we also went for an afternoon pint in the sunshine in Galway.
Anyone who has ever been a resident of Galway will know that an afternoon of sunshine in Galway can be very hard to beat. Everyone is always so happy to be here!

Then on Saturday it was my friend's birthday. So Siobhan and I decided to make a cake. A guitar cake!
I do have photos but my silly laptop charger has died so I can't us my laptop at the moment to upload the photos :( I will show you soon.

But before we could finish the cake. I got a phonecall to say that some friends of mine were in Neachtains  if I fancied joining them. I was soooo excited! I hadn't seen Billy in a long long time (bar maybe 20 minutes at a 30th earlier in the year) nor had I met his very lovely other half Noel. So Siobhan got left with the remainder of the cake and I got to meet the boys! 

How one weekend fitted so many friends I don't know. It was fabulous! And we got to go to Tom's birthday party afterwards which introduced me to rice krispie buns with marshmallow. Genius.

On Monday I read a message from James' brother's girlfriend (are you with me?) to say that they are hoping to come visit in a few weeks! 
I am so excited! I loved when they came last time! They are so so nice!
 Also, his sister Margaret sent an adorable photo of her little kiddies wearing some stuff we sent over in a parcel. It has gotten me even more excited about or impending move to Scotland!

Then last night I got to spend time with two of my amigos who I will miss terribly when I leave.
Mandy and Carolan. But we have decided on regular visits so I will probably see them more then than I do now! 

Have a good week you all!
I hope your week is full of friends too

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…

Day 2 - 20 facts about me

I always struggle with challenges such as these, where I have to give some facts about myself. Can I think of 20 things and if so will they be any good? Pressure! Well... here goes....

1. I love letters. Not bills and what not, I mean real, news filled letters. I have a handful of people whom I write to, and they write back in return. Alas, I am not very good at replying in a timely manner! I have had penpals since I was about 11 years old. Two of which were from Belarus. Their names were Tatiana and Irena. One of the highlights of their letters were the wee boxed stationery that they used to write on. I loved it so much.
2. I dislike sheep. Immensely.
3. I have 2 tattoos. One of a fairy, and one of a fox.
4. I love ducks and foxes. And Hairy Coos.
5. I think puns are severely underrated.
6. My favourite book is Jane Eyre.
7. My favourite author is more difficult... maybe Jasper Fforde... though the compilations of Irish tales by Sinead DeValera have a special place in my heart as do …

Farewell 2017! Farewell!

Where did 2017 go? Is it just me or did 2017 just fly by like a whirling dervish? Tomorrow we celebrate Hogmaney in all its glory and I can't wait. I am leaving 2017 on such a high, and I can't wait to see where 2018 takes me.
I got an email today from myself. It was an email I sent to myself 5 year ago via a website called www.futureme.org . You should go and have a look, it is a very peculiar thing to send your future self an email. Anyway, I digress. The email told me where I hoped to be five years ago. Some of it I have done, some of it I have not but what I found very interesting was how my perception of happiness and contentment have changed in the last five years. That got me thinking. It is amazing how much my perception of happiness and contentment have changed in the past year!

2017 was for me a year of growth and a year of self discovery.
I feel I found myself a lot this year. I found comfort in myself and a confidence in my capabilites.
It was a rollercoaster year …
