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

Tis the season of the 30s

It has been a little while since I've blogged. Not for any particular reason other than I have been stupidly busy with life and work. Those of you who read my blog regularly had the joy of having to witness me going through a roller coaster few months. The good news is that the roller coaster has stopped, I have survived the ride and I am looking forward to stepping on to the next few fairground attractions! Thank you to everyone who propped me up and supported me along the way!

We are getting into the difficult time of the year now. November. Ugh, how I hate November with a passion. The only positive is that my job is so busy it keeps me distracted from all the tough days and the month moves faster than any other month of the year.

This year, the November lull has arrived in mid-October. Two of my friends turn 30 at the start of November. My little sister should be turning 30 in early November also. Today I was ordering cards and getting together their gifts for their birthdays an…

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…

Life of Lu: Thankfuls 29/10/17

I had a moment yesterday.
I cried.
The tears were unfortunate and a manifestation of forgotten memories and regurgitated feelings from years gone by.
The foundation of those tears were this blog, and the content of this blog.
I sometimes forget that there is a little part of the internet that holds my feelings, my deepest darkest moments and my anxieties, as well as my triumphs, delights and fond memories.
The blog was read, and it's contents had the potential to spoil a very important relationship in my life.
I got upset.
As I said, I cried.
For the first time in many years, I remembered the many people who turned their backs on me not because of anything I had done but because of situations in which I was merely an affected bystander. 
The mind is a wonderful thing in that it can hide these moments from memory. It is also a cruel master who can cut you with these moments when you are at your most vulnerable. At this time of the year I am at my most vulnerable. In reality I will…
