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!!

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…
