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.

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

What is happiness?

Last night, instead of doing my Life of Lu for the week (how bold, never fear, I'll do it after this) I met up with an old friend of mine. It is always  nice to meet up with someone who you can just pick up with as if you met them yesterday. Anyhoo, The conversation got very philosophical as can happen after a couple of cold ones and the question came up "what is happiness?" Profound huh? Well we decided that happiness is not a continuous feeling merely something that happens in a moment and we have to ensure that we get plenty of those moments in our lifetime  for it to seem happy. Deep I know. This is what we came up with as an answer to  What is happiness? -Getting a big hug from someone who puts all their heart into it. -James added the first time his little niece Emma came to sit on his lap for a cuddle (it was the start of a lovely little friendship) -The first time you kiss that person you have dreamt about kissing and it tingles your toes - The moment when you f

2020

I have started this blog post four times now. I think that is a new record for my procrastination. I didn't do a New Year blog, and my previous versions of this were a look back on 2019. I'll be very honest, I don't want to look back on 2019. I want to put it in a box, and seal it away forever. There were some fabulous moments. Of course there were! I got engaged to the most wonderful man I have ever known. I witnessed the weddings of some of my best friends. Babies were born. There was an abundance of soft play, cuddles and karaoke. For me, 2019 will mostly remind me of being ill. It was a huge part of the year. The worry consumed me for the majority of the latter half. I now know more about hypertension, blood pressure, kidney function and kidney failure than I ever thought necessary. It sucks being ill. It sucks knowing that you have an illness that will never go away. It doesn't feel fair. If I am very honest with myself I went into a little bit of a pit
