Life of Lu 14/11 2011

Hello hello!
How long has it been since I've done my life of Lu?
Too long! That's how long!
But never fear! It means I've loads of news!

The main news is that at 12pm today
I will be getting keys to our flat!
Whoop!
It is a lovely little one bedroomed flat.
And I can't wait to get stuck in and put my our stamp on it!
Would you like a sneak peak?



Isn't it pretty!
And a wonderful blank canvas!
There is also one bedroom but there was no picture of that on the letting agency's website!

We spent the weekend with James' family.
Due to the ridiculous amount of overtime James is doing over the next few weeks he doesn't know when he's going to get back down there for a weekend next.
It was an interesting weekend.
We were staying in the retirement complex in which his parents are living where we were introduced as man and wife... that was a shock! 
I was also given advice about how I should care for James
which was insightful... ahem....
What was really a shock was on Saturday night after we had arrived back from a night with James' siblings we went to the local garage to get a drink of fizz before bed.
We could hear sirens as we walked down the hill back to complex.
When we got there we were greeted with two fire trucks, a car park full of sleepy residents and many more introductions as hubby and wife. So much for sneaking in discretely!
All and all it was a pleasant (if not so subtle) weekend.

Non-Scotland related.
I saw this on Facebook today.
So I clicked and had a listen.
And I loved it!
What do you think?


Last night we watched a film with a friend of ours Steve.
I had seen trailers for it before but didn't really pay much attention.
I was wrong.
I should have paid attention.
The film was super.

Watch it.

To finish, I heard of something on Saturday which sounded minging.
It is a pizza crunch.
So I went googling.
Or is it google-ing?
I never know.
Anyway.
Pizza Crunch.
For those of you who are alien to this erm... experience
the pizza crunch is a deep-friend battered pizza
Honestly it exists.
Look.

Missing Marguerite. 14 years later.

On this day, 14 years ago, the world lost a little bit of its magic, when at 11pm, my little sister took her final breath and life changed as we all knew it. She was only 17 years old. 17 years and 19 days to be exact. As I sat here today reading all the lovely messages written about her, my heart soared with pride in the fact that in her short time with us, she managed to have such a big impact on so many people. Marguerite Mary O'Dwyer, an ambassador for mischief, mockery and for having a marvellous time. I miss her so much.

It is funny how every year there is something different that I focus on for the anniversary. I never choose my train of thought, I think the year since the last anniversary chooses it for me. Last night, I got fairly plastered on wine and when my other half went to his bed, I sat and sang along to every sad song I could think of. I had a wee chat with Mags before I went to bed and woke up this morning well rested and ready to seize the day. 
I got quite sad a…

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 …

Day 3 - My favourite quote

This is a tough one because there are a number of quotes and phrases that I try to live my life by, or reflect upon. I am not sure if I have a favourite.
My life  mantra I picked up many years ago, but I don't know where it came from.
That is 'Fuck it or Fix it'.
I use it all the time. If I have a problem then fix it. If I can't fix it then fuck it. Move on.
That is sometimes easier said that done but it does help me out a lot sometimes.

I also really like a quote by Thomas Edison.
'I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that it won't work'.
It is a very comforting sentiment sometimes.

I read a book years ago called 'The Art of War' by Sun Tzu. I highly recommend it.
In that book he says 'The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting'.
I have always like that outlook.
