Life of Lu 07/07/14


Happy Monday folks!
I am sitting in a wee cafe here in Edinburgh, hiding my ginger pale skin from the most fabulous sunshine. I know, I know, I should be out enjoying the rays and getting my share of Vitamin D but truth be told I wasn't expecting it after our golf ball hailstones yesterday and I'm sunscreen free. Oh! The woes of the freckled folk!

So, what is happening in the life of Lu?




I am enjoying my home life so much right now. My new housemate is a darling, and his other half is rather adorable too. There is nothing better than living in a comfortable house, with a friend you adore. We sing terribly together, cook dinner together (when our schedules match), act like idiots together and laugh nearly all the time. I love it! I think everyone needs a Johnathon in their life. If you don't have one, you should get one. 





Work is going well, really well. The hours can be long but overall I am really enjoying myself. There are times when I wonder if I am really cut out for the world of retail. It can be a very thankless career, but I do like it. 

The big news is that my pal Claire and I are going to Ireland next week! Whoop! Claire and I have been talking about doing this since we met, and finally we are doing it. We are heading to Galway for 2 nights, then I am heading to see my lovely pal Dearbhla and her beautiful family for a night before heading back west for the wedding of my bestest Edel. I can't wait. My Da is my date for the wedding and I know that the two of us are going to be emotional wrecks! One of my favourite people, well two of my favourites actually are coming back for the wedding from America! How exciting! It is going to be an epic week!!!


I am looking forward to showing Claire the beauty that is the west of Ireland. There will be a bit of this


some of this


lots of these 


and the craic will be mighty!
The scenery will be too...




If anyone is free to meet us send me a facebook message. It will be great to have a wee catch up!!


Every post needs to have that burning question. 
I tend to always have a burning question... maybe I'm just a drama queen at heart.
This weeks question is: When does platonic stop being platonic?


Oh, we all know the answer. It stops as soon as you begin to wonder 'hmmmmm?!'

Anyone who has followed this blog knows that I am a serious/serial over thinker.
I think too much, I over-analyse too much.
I am doing it again and it is driving me insane.
I seem to have an inability to just be forward and to speak my mind. 
For someone who is not particularly shy, it is a weird trait to possess.

What happens, what always happens, is I get too wound up about something, don't approach it properly and then I run away from it with my tail between my legs, wondering why it all went wrong. 
Maybe someday, I'll get it right. 
Maybe when it is right, I'll get it right. 
Or maybe, just maybe, he will?
Cryptic huh?

Two of my favourite people got engaged recently! They are having an engagement party this weekend and I can't wait! It is so lovely when you see true love blossom and flourish between two people you like. May they have a life of happiness ahead of them and many beautiful memories to create along the road.

This weekend I am going to the Sainsbury's Summer Series in Glasgow.
I can't wait!
It will be such an amazing experience to watch great athletes taking part in the games before the Commonwealth Games in July. Eeek!!


Have a good week amigos,
Hopefully, I will manage a catch up soon!

Lu xx

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…

Day 2 - 20 facts about me

I always struggle with challenges such as these, where I have to give some facts about myself. Can I think of 20 things and if so will they be any good? Pressure! Well... here goes....

1. I love letters. Not bills and what not, I mean real, news filled letters. I have a handful of people whom I write to, and they write back in return. Alas, I am not very good at replying in a timely manner! I have had penpals since I was about 11 years old. Two of which were from Belarus. Their names were Tatiana and Irena. One of the highlights of their letters were the wee boxed stationery that they used to write on. I loved it so much.
2. I dislike sheep. Immensely.
3. I have 2 tattoos. One of a fairy, and one of a fox.
4. I love ducks and foxes. And Hairy Coos.
5. I think puns are severely underrated.
6. My favourite book is Jane Eyre.
7. My favourite author is more difficult... maybe Jasper Fforde... though the compilations of Irish tales by Sinead DeValera have a special place in my heart as do …

Farewell 2017! Farewell!

Where did 2017 go? Is it just me or did 2017 just fly by like a whirling dervish? Tomorrow we celebrate Hogmaney in all its glory and I can't wait. I am leaving 2017 on such a high, and I can't wait to see where 2018 takes me.
I got an email today from myself. It was an email I sent to myself 5 year ago via a website called www.futureme.org . You should go and have a look, it is a very peculiar thing to send your future self an email. Anyway, I digress. The email told me where I hoped to be five years ago. Some of it I have done, some of it I have not but what I found very interesting was how my perception of happiness and contentment have changed in the last five years. That got me thinking. It is amazing how much my perception of happiness and contentment have changed in the past year!

2017 was for me a year of growth and a year of self discovery.
I feel I found myself a lot this year. I found comfort in myself and a confidence in my capabilites.
It was a rollercoaster year …
