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!
Whoop!
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!
AND 
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…

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…
