Life of Lu 31/05/14

I don't have much time for an update today as I am working later, but considering how long it has been since I've had access to a computer to do this, I felt it was time to post something.

The life of Lu has taken a few unexpected turns since my last post.
It has taken many unexpected turns if I am honest.

The biggest one is probably the fact that I am no longer in a relationship. 6 years on I am single again. Ouch for the ego and even more ouch for the fact that I just turned 30.
 30!
Not only did I turn thirty, I turned thirty with style. 

And with a slight mental breakdown of heading in to a new decade and literally starting my life all over again.
But I got over it.
I'm smiling.
I'm wearing pink.
I'm twirling.
It is pretty ok.

I did have the trauma of my best friends wedding invite arriving with a plus one option. 
I now understand all those comedians/ movies where this is an issue. 
I always thought it was a bit naff, a bit overblown. 
Nah. It isn't. It is pretty flippin' traumatic!


I was given my own store to run.
Not bad huh?
Two years with the company and it is going pretty well.
Soon, I will be CEO....
Watch this space......


I got a new housemate...

I guess the most important thing of all is that Edinburgh is treating me well.
I have formed some amazing friendships, especially since the break up with James.
I have more people I consider friends than I could possible have hoped for and I love waking up in the morning and remembering how lucky I am to be where I am.


I also decided that I needed to restructure my life plan slightly.
It kind of has to happen when your world goes belly up.


I decided that I want to travel more.
I want to start dancing.
I want to go out for dinner and wine rather than go clubbing.
I want to go to the theatre
I want to have fun
Any takers?

I decided that I wanted to find a man. Not a boy. But a man.

It isn't a priority but I did make some rules.

1. Has to work for a different company
2. Has to be older than me
3. Has to be taller than 6ft 3
4. Can't be involved with anyone
5. Has to make me laugh.

Within about 2 days of setting these rules I broke the first 3. 


So those rules have evolved.
The other two remain the same.
The evolution is however shall remain under wraps as some things need to be kept discreet.

So, what is happening in the life of Lu?
Loads.
And I need to get back to documenting it.
I will have to go old school and pick a day, perhaps a Tuesday where I force myself to go and update it.
Until the next my amigos...

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?
