musings...

I should be fast asleep, getting ready for my 4.30am wake up call in the morning. It shall not be pleasant.
Tonight I was given some very sad news about a man who I have grown to love dearly over the past few years. That coupled with my dad's departure back to Ireland today have had me thinking. There are a few things I have been pondering on in particular. 

1. Our health is our wealth and I am very fortunate to have been able to spend quality time with my dad over the last week without worrying about his health or his abilities. 

2. Life is short
More accurately time to spend with others is limited. Enjoy it while you have it. More importantly save your time for people who want to spend it with you. How does this translate into real life? Well, at the top of my head I can think of a couple of friendships where I feel like it is only I who makes the effort. Why am I wasting my time and feelings on those who don't feel the same? Life is too darn short.

3. While my dad's quest to find me a husband was unsuccessful he did get me thinking about my job etc... After eventually convincing him that I not about to move back to Ireland it did get me thinking about what is next for Lu. Watch this space!!!

Tbc... (I nodded off! )

  1. Poo. I posted a comment on this and then for some reason it got deleted?

    It is a comfort to know our parents are well, as they age I often forget that I'm aging too. It's all such a strange realization. I don't feel the age I am and I don't feel like my parents are ready to start aching, or losing their hearing,... health is wealth, for sure.

    I wish we would've had more time in Tallinn. I will always treasure your friendship, no matter near or far. You're wonderful, Lu!

    Tell me more about what is next for Lu.

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…
