These are a few of my favourite things....

I was thinking today about how I have some really talented friends.
And how so many of my friends don't realise how talented they actually are.
So today my blog is dedicated to those friends.
It also allows me to share with you the talent that I am lucky enough to enjoy regularly.

1) Brianán.


Brianán is a one of those people who you spend with time with and then smile for about two days afterwards. I don't know how she does it but I adore spending time with her.
She also has started making her own cards and notepaper. From SCRATCH! How cool is that?
Would you like a look?
Of course you would!




Yup. Isn't she talented?
Why not click HERE and let her know what you think?



2. Tiffani


I met Tiffani about four years ago in a little city called Tallinn. (see photo above)
We became really good friends and her friendship is one that I have really treasured in the last few years.
We send each other letters and parcels.
We talk about everything and anything.
We shared happy times, sad times, tears and laughter
She's fabulous.
Not only is she a fabulous friend she is a fabulous photographer.
This one is my favourites



She has such a good eye for a shot. I love looking at all her photos. Especially some of the photos she took in Russia. They are beautiful. Stunning even.
You should have a look at her work.

3. Eibhlín




 Eibhlín is also a fabulous photographer who is based here in little old Galway.
Not only is she a ridiculous amount of fun to be around she also manages to catch the mood of every event she attends through the lense of her camera.

If you fancy having a look you should.


4. Patrick



Patrick is my baby brother. Ok, he is not a baby anymore but in my head he will always be classed as my baby brother.
Not only is he one of the kindest people I know he is also an amazing poet.
His poetry can be quite controversial but it is all quite current.
I must admit that I am quite envious of his talent on paper.
Have a look HERE if you want to read some of his work.
It is a treat.


 There are many other people I can include and I will do it again.
Alas my other half now wants to check the soccer results so I'm being bullied from the computer.
I hope you enjoy my talented friends as much as I do.
Until the next time....

Let's talk about mental health

I must admit I am a little bit nervous about writing this blog today.
I am afraid that I will get a little too emotional when writing about a topic that is very close to my heart.
I will apologise now for if I ramble or get lost in a stream of consciousness. I hope you can make sense of what I am about to write.

This week, another life was lost to the tragedy that is suicide. I should correct myself, a famous life was lost to suicide. I have no doubt that this week, many families around the world are grieving and trying to figure out why one of their own has taken their own life.

The reason that I want to write this post is simply down to the number of horrible and ignorant comments that I have read on social media about Chester Bennington's death. For me, it highlighted the lack of understanding of mental health in this day and age.

I'm going to take you back on a wee journey with me and tell you why this is such a personal topic and why I feel that it needs to be spoken abou…

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…

Moving on.

I realised something the other day. That is not nearly specific enough or dramatic enough for this story. Let me start again...
I had a startling realisation the other day. I think Scotland and I are starting to go our separate ways (and I am not talking about Brexit) I was in Glasgow a few weeks ago, and I went on a tourist bus tour. I actually went on it twice, and I loved it. I got to see all the attractions I have wanted to see over the years: The Cathedral, the Necropolis, The Transport Museum, The People's Palace. It was very similar to something I did just before I left Edinburgh, my own little way of saying goodbye. When I got on the train home, I realised that in my own wee way, I was saying goodbye to Glasgow. Other than a course there on the 11th of May, I have no idea when I am going to be there next. I have no gigs booked, my upcoming flights to Ireland are all from Edinburgh.  I feel rather sad that my attachment to Glasgow has severed. In my head it was where I would…
