So... what's going on?


1. I can't believe it is 2012 already!
Happy New Year everybody!
I hope you all had a super celebration.

2. I can't believe that I haven't written on this in nearly a month.
Shame on me.
Shame on me.
But in my defence I do not own a computer
or a laptop
or anything that connects to the internet.
But hopefully I will soon.
Donations will be welcome!

3. Scotland is going super.
I really love it here.
Have you ever arrived at a place and instantly thought "Home"?
Well that is kinda what has happened.
Our little flat is really cute.
(I had to resist the urge to write "wee flat" there... jeez)
and as James and I have no entertainment other than books, the radio and each other's company
we've really been spending some quality time together.
And are practically inhaling the words off the pages of our NEW books!
Yes! New Books! We've started to restore our library.
It is heavenly!

4. James is reading a super book at the moment.
I got it for £3 in a shop called fopp (or something similar)
It is about the gypsy way of life and their culture.
There is a review of it HERE.
I had a sneaky look at a few pages and I got hooked.
You should read it if you have time.
It looks mega!


I found a wonderful collection of Ernest Hemingway stories and novels for a whole £2.
I have never really read much of his work before.
I'm already in love and I'm only half a novel in!

Oh! I've forgotten what number I am on...
5? I found out something that interested me greatly this week.
Do you know the song "The Lion Sleeps Tonight"?
Well, in the French version,
he doesn't sleep.
He is dead.
Look...

I don't know why I found that so erm...
significant that I felt I should mention it
but I did.
And
I've been telling everyone I meet also!

6.There are two more songs that are featuring greatly in the lives of Lu and James at the mo...
Red Solo Cup

and
an adorable song about a donkey!


Though for a while there James thought
Dominic the Donkey
was actually called
Dominate the Donkey.
I asked no questions.

So folks!
My time has come to bid adieu
but I will say,
Send me your addresses
and get writing some letters!
I want post!!

Let's talk about mental health

I must admit I am a little bit nervous about writing this blog today.
I am afraid that I will get a little too emotional when writing about a topic that is very close to my heart.
I will apologise now for if I ramble or get lost in a stream of consciousness. I hope you can make sense of what I am about to write.

This week, another life was lost to the tragedy that is suicide. I should correct myself, a famous life was lost to suicide. I have no doubt that this week, many families around the world are grieving and trying to figure out why one of their own has taken their own life.

The reason that I want to write this post is simply down to the number of horrible and ignorant comments that I have read on social media about Chester Bennington's death. For me, it highlighted the lack of understanding of mental health in this day and age.

I'm going to take you back on a wee journey with me and tell you why this is such a personal topic and why I feel that it needs to be spoken abou…

Life of Lu - thankfuls 10/09/2017

Today is the first official day of my holidays from work, and truth be told they couldn't come at a better time. I am tired, exhausted even and full of doubt about what my future holds for a number of reasons. So, I thought to myself, what a perfect time to write a list of thankfuls to remind me of all the truly wonderful things I have in my life.

1. I am thankful for my team at work. I have a store team of about 50 and a management team of 6. I don't particularly enjoy talking about work online, as it isn't really appropriate but I am so thankful for my team. Every day they are a fountain of support, and their enthusiasm never ceases to amaze me. They are my reason for going to work every day, and I count my lucky stars that I have been given the team that I have. They make the tough days better and the good days great.

2. I am thankful for my Cambridge Consultant, Claire. 4 weeks ago I started on a rather scary journey of self improvement. I found Claire, spoke to her ab…

Moving on.

I realised something the other day. That is not nearly specific enough or dramatic enough for this story. Let me start again...
I had a startling realisation the other day. I think Scotland and I are starting to go our separate ways (and I am not talking about Brexit) I was in Glasgow a few weeks ago, and I went on a tourist bus tour. I actually went on it twice, and I loved it. I got to see all the attractions I have wanted to see over the years: The Cathedral, the Necropolis, The Transport Museum, The People's Palace. It was very similar to something I did just before I left Edinburgh, my own little way of saying goodbye. When I got on the train home, I realised that in my own wee way, I was saying goodbye to Glasgow. Other than a course there on the 11th of May, I have no idea when I am going to be there next. I have no gigs booked, my upcoming flights to Ireland are all from Edinburgh.  I feel rather sad that my attachment to Glasgow has severed. In my head it was where I would…
