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!

Ah November. You have returned.

I woke up this morning with a dullness in my heart that I normally don't have in the morning.
On my mornings allocated to sleep in I resemble a sloth blissfully unaware of life in a cocoon, but on a normal morning I wake up with a bit of a bounce. I start my day with a bit of shower time karaoke. I dance around the bedroom as I get dressed for the day. I have a great time. ( Jeez, as I write this I suddenly appreciate Stuart's morning patience a little bit more! Ha!)  Anyway, the point being, despite a very early bed time last night I woke up a wee bit deflated.

Then I remembered  that my old nemesis November has returned.
I did a quick calculation. Marguerite would be 32 next week.
32! Being 32 was one of my favourite times.
Another quick calculation, Marguerite will be gone 15 years this month. 15 years. 2 more years and she will be gone as long as she was with us.
Every November is a little bit easier than the last. Of course it is. Time is a wonderful healer.
But every cal…

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 I've created
12) Publish somet…

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 pity pit for a w…
