Becoming The Sims

Yesterday I was a little upset.
No, upset is the wrong word.
I was down hearted.
Sometimes little things just take an awful lot of effort.
So James came up with a cracker of an idea.
He decided to turn our lives into a real life Sims game.

So last night over dinner we set out the levels.
And in true Sims fashion we both wanted to focus on the leisure levels first.
But being realistic the Home levels are more important.
It was so much fun!
And it just threw a bit of magic back into a stressful situation.
Not only that, it gave us both a skip in our step.
To add to our good news,
James has found out that while he is working in Edinburgh from the 4th Dec.
He is actually working in Dunfermline until then so we do have an income!
And the company that are leasing the flat that we loved
have contacted us to see if we are still interested 
and are offering to put a bed in for us!
Well. I probably shouldn't get too excited just yet!
We still have to apply for it! 
But surely if they've contacted us that is a good sign!
my favourite bit of news!
I found a cafe that do a toasted bagel with smoked salmon and cream cheese
with a POT of tea for £3.80.

This is such a good day!

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…

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…
