So... what's the craic?

I realised today how long it has been since I blogged.
My attempts to keep up have been pathetic.
I apologise.
I'm uafásach ar fad.
Sorry.

So...
what's the craic?

Well,
Edinburgh is going great.
We both are settling in though it is taking longer to find our niche than we thought it would.
We've started to really make friends which is always great fun
and our flat is really becoming our little haven.
You should come visit.
We would love to show it off to you.



Work is pretty ok,
though we're both thinking of heading on the job hunt again.
I'm simply not earning enough so it will be another job for me as well as what I'm doing now and James has done his time with his employers. I think itchy feet have kicked in. Or it could be the fact that one of his co-workers on hearing that he was with the company nearly four years remarked that he must consider it his long term career. He was not impressed.
But 2012 is in a new city, with new opportunities, new adventures and new hopes and dreams. If you want something bad enough you can make it happen so maybe this change is what we need. A change or a good kick up the arse... whichever comes first!

James and I are having a pretty special month this month.
On February 29th we are together 4 YEARS!
And I get my 1ST ANNIVERSARY!
(I should probably say "we" there shouldn't I... oops!)
How exciting!
We had this wonderful plan to go to London to a show and to visit his sister and her fabulous family who we miss terribly but alas due to various fiscal obligations we have had to give up on that idea. So it was a double disappointment.
We have however decided to go on an adventure.
We don't know where.
We don't know how.
But it will be fabulous.
And as long as we're together on the 29th I don't think either of us particularily cares where we go.
If you have any ideas let me know!

Young Love At Beach

It is funny to think back on the last four years.
Without sounding smug
(but you know I do!)
they have been really wonderful years.
It hasn't always been easy ( I think anyone who has ever encountered a man-flu sufferer knows about those little hardships) but it has always been fun.
It is great to find someone who not only appreciates your foibles but tries to out-weird them with their own!
Ah, now I'm getting soppy.
I'll stop gushing.

So here is to a super February folks!
I'll be good again and get blogging.
Chat soon!

Missing Marguerite. 14 years later.

On this day, 14 years ago, the world lost a little bit of its magic, when at 11pm, my little sister took her final breath and life changed as we all knew it. She was only 17 years old. 17 years and 19 days to be exact. As I sat here today reading all the lovely messages written about her, my heart soared with pride in the fact that in her short time with us, she managed to have such a big impact on so many people. Marguerite Mary O'Dwyer, an ambassador for mischief, mockery and for having a marvellous time. I miss her so much.

It is funny how every year there is something different that I focus on for the anniversary. I never choose my train of thought, I think the year since the last anniversary chooses it for me. Last night, I got fairly plastered on wine and when my other half went to his bed, I sat and sang along to every sad song I could think of. I had a wee chat with Mags before I went to bed and woke up this morning well rested and ready to seize the day. 
I got quite sad a…

Day 2 - 20 facts about me

I always struggle with challenges such as these, where I have to give some facts about myself. Can I think of 20 things and if so will they be any good? Pressure! Well... here goes....

1. I love letters. Not bills and what not, I mean real, news filled letters. I have a handful of people whom I write to, and they write back in return. Alas, I am not very good at replying in a timely manner! I have had penpals since I was about 11 years old. Two of which were from Belarus. Their names were Tatiana and Irena. One of the highlights of their letters were the wee boxed stationery that they used to write on. I loved it so much.
2. I dislike sheep. Immensely.
3. I have 2 tattoos. One of a fairy, and one of a fox.
4. I love ducks and foxes. And Hairy Coos.
5. I think puns are severely underrated.
6. My favourite book is Jane Eyre.
7. My favourite author is more difficult... maybe Jasper Fforde... though the compilations of Irish tales by Sinead DeValera have a special place in my heart as do …

Farewell 2017! Farewell!

Where did 2017 go? Is it just me or did 2017 just fly by like a whirling dervish? Tomorrow we celebrate Hogmaney in all its glory and I can't wait. I am leaving 2017 on such a high, and I can't wait to see where 2018 takes me.
I got an email today from myself. It was an email I sent to myself 5 year ago via a website called www.futureme.org . You should go and have a look, it is a very peculiar thing to send your future self an email. Anyway, I digress. The email told me where I hoped to be five years ago. Some of it I have done, some of it I have not but what I found very interesting was how my perception of happiness and contentment have changed in the last five years. That got me thinking. It is amazing how much my perception of happiness and contentment have changed in the past year!

2017 was for me a year of growth and a year of self discovery.
I feel I found myself a lot this year. I found comfort in myself and a confidence in my capabilites.
It was a rollercoaster year …
