Scotland

I don't know if I have ever mentioned it
but I am moving to Scotland in a few months with my lovely boy.
I was thinking about Scotland a lot today
as I am very very very excited about the whole thing.
I have been to Scotland loads of times and I do love it.
So I began to think
Just to get myself all excited
Because I think it is important to keep excitement alive
what it is that I am looking forward to most.
This is what I came up with.

1. I am really looking forward to getting to know James' family a bit better.


A lot better really I guess considering I know next to nothing about them and they know next to nothing about me!
I have met most of his siblings and they all seem quite lovely so I'm not particularly nervous about being so close.
He also has the most adorable niece and nephews in Glasgow and it will be lovely to get to know them too.

2. Kilts.
I will be really disappointed if I don't see some Kilt action.
It may be dashing kilt action

or bold kilt action

I'm not fussy as long as I see some kilt!


3.
The land of jack daniels ribs and free refills.
Yum!

4. Exploring the highlands!

5. Visiting all the places made famous by my favourite Scotland(ish) movies




6. I'm looking forward to opening the next chapter in the story of Lu and James.

Who knows where this wonderful journey will take us!

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…

Tis the season of the 30s

It has been a little while since I've blogged. Not for any particular reason other than I have been stupidly busy with life and work. Those of you who read my blog regularly had the joy of having to witness me going through a roller coaster few months. The good news is that the roller coaster has stopped, I have survived the ride and I am looking forward to stepping on to the next few fairground attractions! Thank you to everyone who propped me up and supported me along the way!

We are getting into the difficult time of the year now. November. Ugh, how I hate November with a passion. The only positive is that my job is so busy it keeps me distracted from all the tough days and the month moves faster than any other month of the year.

This year, the November lull has arrived in mid-October. Two of my friends turn 30 at the start of November. My little sister should be turning 30 in early November also. Today I was ordering cards and getting together their gifts for their birthdays an…

Happy 30th birthday Marguerite

Dear Marguerite,
In an alternative reality we are preparing ourselves for the weekend of a lifetime this weekend, you turn 30 on Friday! Whoop! Happy birthday little sister! Where have the years gone? I have no doubt that we would be hitting a European city for a few cocktails and a spa weekend or I would be back in Ireland for a party to end all parties. If there was one thing you could do by the tender age of 17 it was throw a party. 
I wish more than anything that we could have that weekend together. A weekend of gossip, of laughter and probably over indulgence. No doubt you would still disapprove of my style, my ability to put on make up and my hair. No doubt your insistence on getting ready for a few hours would still drive me insane. 
I often wonder what your life is like in that alternative reality. Are you a wife? Are you a mum? Are you a career driven woman with plans of world domination? Are you a wanderer with an insatiable lust to see all the world and explore it's wo…
