Why 2012 was simply fabulous...

There are so many negative end of year comments being made today that I felt the need to try to counteract them. This is my list of why 2012 was a fabulous year, both personally and in general.
I know that there was also a lot of loss but I would rather focus on the positive heading into next year and start with a positive outlook!

1. Queen Elizabeth became a bond girl.


2. I witnessed one of my best friends marry the man of her dreams


3. I met my little cousin Adam for the first time

4. My best friend got engaged to her wonderful boyfriend

5. My baby brother met and fell in love with his fiancé Kate
6. My cousin Nicola FINALLY got engaged to her lovely boyfriend Eoin
7. My mum graduated from university after spending three/four years studying

8. James brother-in-law graduated in nursing.
9. My aunt Olive received her masters
10.I started my current job, a job which I love
11. I helped set up the store newsletter for my area. How fun!
12. I made some fabulous friends, some of whom have really made a huge impact on my life in a really short space of time.
13. Lily-Mae became a national treasure, and Ireland united in support for one poorly wee girl.
14. Over here, X factor were kept off the top of the charts this Christmas as another charity single hit number one. Whoop.
15. I learnt how to make paper


16. James' brother John and the fabulous Lorraine got engaged!

17. I saw Amateur Transplants and fell in love with the act.

18. The Lionel Richie teapot.
19. James and I had our first real anniversary on February 29th!

I've just realised that this list can go on for a few more hours. Help me out.... what are your favourite memories of 2012?

Happy New Year 2013!!

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

Life of Lu 7/6/2012

I love Edinburgh. I think you should know. I love it truly. Every day I feel more settled. Every week I feel new friendships grow deeper. I really am content. So content that I sing. Poorly. I should apologise for that. I really like my new job. Sometimes I feel my head may explode with information. Then it digests and I feel capable again. It is nice to use my brain again. It does help that I have wonderful colleagues. They make it easy to love the job. I will be working with them for at least 7 more weeks. Then I finish my training. After that... who knows? Euro 2012 fever has taken over our wee flat. It bores me terribly but the boy loves it, so I pretend. I pretend quite well. I predict Russia to win. He reckons Portugal. I hope I win! I have a new cousin! And one on the way. I wish I could meet them soober than October. Hurry up October! I should mention that we're popping over in October. Pints? Anyone? Lastly, I received an amazing gift at the we

January

I found out yesterday that I was one of the winners of the photography competition that I entered as one of my 30 before 30. My photograph will now be used in a calender as the January image. How exciting! What do you think?
