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...

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…
