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

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?
