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

What is happiness?

Last night, instead of doing my Life of Lu for the week (how bold, never fear, I'll do it after this) I met up with an old friend of mine. It is always  nice to meet up with someone who you can just pick up with as if you met them yesterday. Anyhoo, The conversation got very philosophical as can happen after a couple of cold ones and the question came up "what is happiness?" Profound huh? Well we decided that happiness is not a continuous feeling merely something that happens in a moment and we have to ensure that we get plenty of those moments in our lifetime  for it to seem happy. Deep I know. This is what we came up with as an answer to  What is happiness? -Getting a big hug from someone who puts all their heart into it. -James added the first time his little niece Emma came to sit on his lap for a cuddle (it was the start of a lovely little friendship) -The first time you kiss that person you have dreamt about kissing and it tingles your toes - The moment when you f

2020

I have started this blog post four times now. I think that is a new record for my procrastination. I didn't do a New Year blog, and my previous versions of this were a look back on 2019. I'll be very honest, I don't want to look back on 2019. I want to put it in a box, and seal it away forever. There were some fabulous moments. Of course there were! I got engaged to the most wonderful man I have ever known. I witnessed the weddings of some of my best friends. Babies were born. There was an abundance of soft play, cuddles and karaoke. For me, 2019 will mostly remind me of being ill. It was a huge part of the year. The worry consumed me for the majority of the latter half. I now know more about hypertension, blood pressure, kidney function and kidney failure than I ever thought necessary. It sucks being ill. It sucks knowing that you have an illness that will never go away. It doesn't feel fair. If I am very honest with myself I went into a little bit of a pit
