Happy birthday Marguerite

I have been down in the dumps a lot lately haven't I.
Surprisingly so considering how much I love my new surroundings.
Last night I said to James that I felt that unemployment
was turning me into an awful moaning Mary
(sorry any Marys out there)
and he gave me a little hug
and said
"Its your sad time of the year Silly
this happens every year"
and then I remembered that Marguerite's birthday is tomorrow.
November 10th.

She should be 24.

Happy birthday Marguerite
 I stole this cake photo.
I 'm not that good! 


I spoke about her a lot last night.
And it was really nice
but emotional.
I find it hard to believe that she is gone 7 years at the end of the month.
Where has that time gone?
I also find it hard to believe that the emotions I drum up when I think of her can still be so raw.
Oh shite, I'm getting bleary eyed in the Internet cafe....
Give me a moment....


I spoke a lot about growing up.
Thats what you do right?
Remember.
How can I not miss this...
That is her posing to the left of the photo

Or that adorable little smile
or those blasted roller skates!

Anyhoo....
I found this poem that represented how I feel today
Happy birthday beautiful sister.

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

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 we

January

I found out yesterday that I was one of the winners of the photography competition that I entered as one of my 30 before 30. My photograph will now be used in a calender as the January image. How exciting! What do you think?
