It is time for another sporadic catch up on the Life of Lu!
We have finally hit the six months in Edinburgh mark and what a six months it has been!
The city is getting more and more beautiful the closer we get to summer.
I especially love all the cherry blossoms!
Our little flat is so full of books and clutter as though we have been there for years
(it is the curse of the AMAZING charity shops that Edinburgh keeps shoving in my face. 50p books? Bring it on!) and we have even started to get to know our neighbours.
Strangely I don't think I ever really knew my neighbours in Galway, not until the month before we left at least!
The big news of the month is that
I really, really am enjoying it.
Which is super!
My colleagues are fabulously nice (I've been so lucky with colleagues since I moved here)
and the job allows me to use my brain a heck of a lot more than my last job did.
I also get to wear purple daily.
What more can I say?
Last week, I received a private response from the QI elves which not only entertained me but made me giggle like a school girl.
I saw that the uber talented singer Duke Special was in Edinburgh and he replied to my tweet telling me that he was playing in town that night. I don't think I have ever dressed myself so quickly in my life. The boy and I arrived at the gig about 15 minutes before he started and danced our little socks off! It was super. I unashamedly drooled over his unbelievably sexy Northern Irish accent. I think James may have too to tell the truth. For the entire weekend I sang his tunes. How I wasn't hit across the head by I colleague for the sheer trauma of my warbling I'll never know...
I have started writing again. Properly. It feels amazing!
I have a wonderful muse called Amanda who is giving me tight deadlines.
Fingers crossed you'll get to see something soon.
Also, check out these amazing cards!
They are available in ABC Bookshop in Corbett Court and as a firm fan I suggest to get them and then send them to me!! The sunflower one already sits happily on my windowsill!
That reminds me:
Thanks to everyone who has sent me lovely cards and letters!
You know I am a sucker for them!
I promise to reply asap.
Keep them coming!
