Someday I'll fly away


I have, yet again, been consumed with wanderlust.
It is a curse. 
An addiction
My greatest desire.

I have been getting quite settled in Aberdeen.
Everyone has been so great, so welcoming, so kind, so fun.
There have been a few hiccups along the way,
and that is to be expected.
but all of a sudden that itch has come upon me.
The itch to roam

Those of you how suffer from bouts of wanderlust will understand exactly what I mean
Will understand how it feels to want to live each day at a time by adventure at a time

I am going to America in a few weeks.
I will see so many things that I can't wait for...

Temple Square in Salt Lake City

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir


Zion National Park


I am hoping that helps scratch the itch.
There is quite a possibility that it will worsen it.


A huge part of me is telling me that i need to settle.
I need to start saving for a flat
I need to find a man to cuddle in to on a cold winters night
I need to have a garden to grow vegetables
I need a fixed abode

A slightly lesser part, though increasingly louder part
Is telling me to go see those things I have always wanted to see
Life is short
Take the road less travelled
Travel the world
Learn its stories
Learn its lessons
Maybe my future is to be found in the nomadic life

I love Scotland

It has such a huge place in my heart. 

I have some amazing friends here.
The move to Aberdeen really highlighted the strength of those friendships.
Unfortunately it also highlighted the fragility of others.
I don't doubt that those who care for me will make an effort to see me 
wherever the wanderlust would take me.
And I would do the same in return

I am at my happiest when on an adventure.
Perhaps, it is time I start looking for a new one.
If  I am brave enough to start all over again that is....

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 …

Day 3 - My favourite quote

This is a tough one because there are a number of quotes and phrases that I try to live my life by, or reflect upon. I am not sure if I have a favourite.
My life  mantra I picked up many years ago, but I don't know where it came from.
That is 'Fuck it or Fix it'.
I use it all the time. If I have a problem then fix it. If I can't fix it then fuck it. Move on.
That is sometimes easier said that done but it does help me out a lot sometimes.

I also really like a quote by Thomas Edison.
'I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that it won't work'.
It is a very comforting sentiment sometimes.

I read a book years ago called 'The Art of War' by Sun Tzu. I highly recommend it.
In that book he says 'The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting'.
I have always like that outlook.
