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...

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…

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 I've created
12) Publish somet…

2020

I have started this blog post four times now.
I think that is a new record for my procrastination.
I didn't do a New Year blog, and my previous versions of this were a look back on 2019.
I'll be very honest, I don't want to look back on 2019.
I want to put it in a box, and seal it away forever.

There were some fabulous moments. Of course there were! I got engaged to the most wonderful man I have ever known. I witnessed the weddings of some of my best friends. Babies were born. There was an abundance of soft play, cuddles and karaoke.

For me, 2019 will mostly remind me of being ill. It was a huge part of the year. The worry consumed me for the majority of the latter half. I now know more about hypertension, blood pressure, kidney function and kidney failure than I ever thought necessary.

It sucks being ill. It sucks knowing that you have an illness that will never go away. It doesn't feel fair. If I am very honest with myself I went into a little bit of a pity pit for a w…
