Life of Lu 13/09/11

Hey ho!!

It is that time of the week again, time to listen to the ranting and raving of Lu!
This week has been a pretty mega week.
James and I have been trying to help each other out health wise this week.
He has me crying through feckloads of kilometres on the exercise bike and lifting weights

while I have him eating fruit and vegetables.
Yesterday he sampled goat's cheese, smoked salmon and mango.


I was very impressed by his efforts!


The Scotland plan is coming along nicely.
I can't figure out where our money is disappearing to so rapidly at the moment.
There always seems to be another flippin' bill
but we'll be fine come Scotland time!
I only have 2 and a half weeks left of work.
Probably 4 weeks left in Ireland.
I am so excited.
I have a wonderful image of me, sitting in the Grassmarket sipping a chai latte, staring at hairy men in kilts.


Honestly, the image gets me through all the cantankerous customers at work at the moment!


I'm not getting much time online unfortunately
Poor Leroy our laptop had a terrible fate.
Our old housemate was sleep walking one night
and mistook our room for the bathroom.


Alas, Leroy was caught in the subsequent stream
and drowned.
It was heartbreaking!


Though on a happy note we're going to the UK soon for a baby's birthday party!


We've got the card, not the pressie
and it turns out James is a TERRIBLE pressie picker!
So it looks like I'm going to have to spend the next week shopping for a gift.
Tough work, isn't it!

Until the next time!

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 I've created
12) Publish somet…

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 weekend.
A tea gift box!
I love …

2020

I have started this blog post four times now.
I think that is a new record for my procrastination.
I didn't do a New Year blog, and my previous versions of this were a look back on 2019.
I'll be very honest, I don't want to look back on 2019.
I want to put it in a box, and seal it away forever.

There were some fabulous moments. Of course there were! I got engaged to the most wonderful man I have ever known. I witnessed the weddings of some of my best friends. Babies were born. There was an abundance of soft play, cuddles and karaoke.

For me, 2019 will mostly remind me of being ill. It was a huge part of the year. The worry consumed me for the majority of the latter half. I now know more about hypertension, blood pressure, kidney function and kidney failure than I ever thought necessary.

It sucks being ill. It sucks knowing that you have an illness that will never go away. It doesn't feel fair. If I am very honest with myself I went into a little bit of a pity pit for a w…
