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...

Thankfuls 31/05/2019

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…

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…

Ah November. You have returned.

I woke up this morning with a dullness in my heart that I normally don't have in the morning.
On my mornings allocated to sleep in I resemble a sloth blissfully unaware of life in a cocoon, but on a normal morning I wake up with a bit of a bounce. I start my day with a bit of shower time karaoke. I dance around the bedroom as I get dressed for the day. I have a great time. ( Jeez, as I write this I suddenly appreciate Stuart's morning patience a little bit more! Ha!)  Anyway, the point being, despite a very early bed time last night I woke up a wee bit deflated.

Then I remembered  that my old nemesis November has returned.
I did a quick calculation. Marguerite would be 32 next week.
32! Being 32 was one of my favourite times.
Another quick calculation, Marguerite will be gone 15 years this month. 15 years. 2 more years and she will be gone as long as she was with us.
Every November is a little bit easier than the last. Of course it is. Time is a wonderful healer.
But every cal…
