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!

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 …

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 …

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…
