That Friday Feeling!

You know, this week was a rollercoaster of a week.
But thankfully it has gone out on a good note!
For no particular reason
it just feels good!
Scratch that! I know the reason!
I'm off all weekend!
Whoop!!!!

Scotland was hit by a whopper of a storm last night.
Thankfully no major damage was done our side of the tracks.
But it was a perfect excuse to cuddle up under the duvet!
These early starts (5.30 am for me and 7am for James)
are not doing our internal clocks any favours
Last night we were both asleep by 7.45.
We're like an old couple
and we're still in our flippin 20's!

I've decided to revive my fuck it or fix it mantra.
I was so mopey and down during the week.
I annoyed myself so I'm sure the rest of you didn't appreciate it one bit.
Today I'll say it loud and proud.
Fuck it or fix it!
If you can't fix it, then fuck it!
If you can fix it then stop complaining and get on with it!
It is amazing how empowering a little swear word can be every now and then.
Though I have to be really vigilant here when I talk...
I didn't realise just how colourful (Irish style) my language had become!
I'll have to clean my mouth out with soap and water one of these days!!

Christmas is around the corner.
It really crept up this year didn't it!
It is going to be a busy Christmas for James and I workwise.
But it means that we will have a nice start to the new year.
So I'm not going to complain!
Once I can get a bit of turkey in me I'm a happy camper.
And bacon of course.
And brussels sprouts.
You've got to have sprouts.
Yum!

So folks!
Enjoy the weekend,
I hope it will be super!

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?
