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!!

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?
