Life of Lu x

My blogging has been pretty dismal so far in 2013. I guess it is the blogging equivalent of January blues. Well, now February is upon us and the blues have lifted so let the blogging recommence!

My birthday is approaching soon, and as some of you may remember, this time last year I compiled a list of 20 things I wish to do before I'm thirty. Well, I did a quick review of the list today and I haven't really been pulling my weight with this one and I only have a year left! So James and I did some planning and in September we are going to head to the pyramids for a few days, and in October we'll head to Rome for a few days so I can see the Sistine Chapel. I can't wait! That will knock two more off the list.

I also said that I wanted to be on TV.
One of my favourite people, and probably the best friend I have made in Scotland is a girl named Claire. 

She is mighty craic and it turns out a fan of the TV show 'Pointless', as am I. 


Well, long story short, Claire and I decided (drunkenly at first and then soberly) that together we are hilarious and that we should enter to be contestants. The entry forms were accepted a few weeks ago and now we wait with bated breath to see if we actually get to meet the wonderful Alexander and Richard. If you have never watched the show then you are missing out. It is great. You should watch an episode. If we get accepted we will either be fabulously good or horrifyingly bad. I'll let you know what happens and you can decide!

I guess the one thing that has happened so far in 2013 is that I've really started to write again. And I feel good about what I am writing. It is so liberating when the words flood through your fingers yet so terrifying when you realise that this may be you living the dream. Why is living the dream so terrifying? Perhaps because if it doesn't pan out the way you want then where do you go from there? Enough negativity. Think Hollywood blockbuster. Hopefully by the end of 2013 another of my 30 will be crossed off the list.

I also want to do a thirty day challenge. There are so many things out there, photograph challenges, song challenges. I want something different. So I have set my own challenge.Each challenge I will continue over the 6 weeks starting tomorrow 11/02/13

Week 1. No cigarettes.
Week 2. Walk home from work on my early shifts 
Week 3. No fizzy
Week 4. Write for one hour a day.
Week 5. No facebook.
Week 6. Try a vegetarian diet for the final week.


I will keep you updated on how I get one. I imagine some of the next six weeks will be nothing short of torture but I guess that is the point! 

Until the next time, Lu xx

  1. I feel the same way about starting to write again. It is terrifying, isn't it? Good luck on your 30 day challenges!

    1. Thank you! It is weird huh? Something I love so much scares the life out of me! It is good to know I'm not the only one who feels like that! Good luck with your writing!

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…

Not many people are aware of it, but I had a bit of a health scare last week. I went for a regular 15 minute check up with my GP and spent the following 5 days in hospital going through every test imaginable to man. I am still in the middle of tests but the prognosis is so far positive and I have been allowed home for rest which is fabulous, but good god did I get a fright. And if I am honest I'm not sure Stuart is quite right after it all either!


I have been joking how I would love a good old MOT (NCT for the Irish amongst us), for a while now. They say mocking is catching, and I have fairly gone through the MOT process this last week. Oh boy has it been a fast week! In that time I have had more blood taken than was shed in the Game of Thrones. My hand is so bruised it looks like I have my first tan! I have seen my pancreas, liver, kidneys and an ovary (very cool scan if I say so myself!), I have had my pee collected in little buckets/bottles for 24hrs, and I have pretty much eith…

It has been a long, long time since I have written a blog post.
I don't know why, it has taken me so long, nor shall I apologise for it.
I could give you a thousand excuses and reasons, but I guess the main reason is that I didn't feel like I had an awful lot to say!

That is not true, I always have a lot to say. The topics that have been on my mind however are quite emotive (mostly Brexit related, and let's be honest we have read and heard more than enough about that shite), and it is very difficult to write something when you yourself don't even understand how you feel about it.

For me it is mostly disappointment, and nobody wants to read a whole blog piece about me feeling disappointed. So tonight, I am writing a much more positive one. I am writing some thankfuls.
I have spent the last few months reading and writing. I have spent some time with my family back in Ireland, and spent some wonderful time with Stuart, his family and my friends here in Aberdeen. I was ref…
