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!

Let's talk about mental health

I must admit I am a little bit nervous about writing this blog today.
I am afraid that I will get a little too emotional when writing about a topic that is very close to my heart.
I will apologise now for if I ramble or get lost in a stream of consciousness. I hope you can make sense of what I am about to write.

This week, another life was lost to the tragedy that is suicide. I should correct myself, a famous life was lost to suicide. I have no doubt that this week, many families around the world are grieving and trying to figure out why one of their own has taken their own life.

The reason that I want to write this post is simply down to the number of horrible and ignorant comments that I have read on social media about Chester Bennington's death. For me, it highlighted the lack of understanding of mental health in this day and age.

I'm going to take you back on a wee journey with me and tell you why this is such a personal topic and why I feel that it needs to be spoken abou…

Life of Lu - thankfuls 10/09/2017

Today is the first official day of my holidays from work, and truth be told they couldn't come at a better time. I am tired, exhausted even and full of doubt about what my future holds for a number of reasons. So, I thought to myself, what a perfect time to write a list of thankfuls to remind me of all the truly wonderful things I have in my life.

1. I am thankful for my team at work. I have a store team of about 50 and a management team of 6. I don't particularly enjoy talking about work online, as it isn't really appropriate but I am so thankful for my team. Every day they are a fountain of support, and their enthusiasm never ceases to amaze me. They are my reason for going to work every day, and I count my lucky stars that I have been given the team that I have. They make the tough days better and the good days great.

2. I am thankful for my Cambridge Consultant, Claire. 4 weeks ago I started on a rather scary journey of self improvement. I found Claire, spoke to her ab…

Moving on.

I realised something the other day. That is not nearly specific enough or dramatic enough for this story. Let me start again...
I had a startling realisation the other day. I think Scotland and I are starting to go our separate ways (and I am not talking about Brexit) I was in Glasgow a few weeks ago, and I went on a tourist bus tour. I actually went on it twice, and I loved it. I got to see all the attractions I have wanted to see over the years: The Cathedral, the Necropolis, The Transport Museum, The People's Palace. It was very similar to something I did just before I left Edinburgh, my own little way of saying goodbye. When I got on the train home, I realised that in my own wee way, I was saying goodbye to Glasgow. Other than a course there on the 11th of May, I have no idea when I am going to be there next. I have no gigs booked, my upcoming flights to Ireland are all from Edinburgh.  I feel rather sad that my attachment to Glasgow has severed. In my head it was where I would…
