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.

  1. Oh the flat looks lovely! And pizza crunch doesn't

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…
