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....

Let's talk about mental health

I must admit I am a little bit nervous about writing this blog today.
I am afraid that I will get a little too emotional when writing about a topic that is very close to my heart.
I will apologise now for if I ramble or get lost in a stream of consciousness. I hope you can make sense of what I am about to write.

This week, another life was lost to the tragedy that is suicide. I should correct myself, a famous life was lost to suicide. I have no doubt that this week, many families around the world are grieving and trying to figure out why one of their own has taken their own life.

The reason that I want to write this post is simply down to the number of horrible and ignorant comments that I have read on social media about Chester Bennington's death. For me, it highlighted the lack of understanding of mental health in this day and age.

I'm going to take you back on a wee journey with me and tell you why this is such a personal topic and why I feel that it needs to be spoken abou…

Life of Lu - thankfuls 10/09/2017

Today is the first official day of my holidays from work, and truth be told they couldn't come at a better time. I am tired, exhausted even and full of doubt about what my future holds for a number of reasons. So, I thought to myself, what a perfect time to write a list of thankfuls to remind me of all the truly wonderful things I have in my life.

1. I am thankful for my team at work. I have a store team of about 50 and a management team of 6. I don't particularly enjoy talking about work online, as it isn't really appropriate but I am so thankful for my team. Every day they are a fountain of support, and their enthusiasm never ceases to amaze me. They are my reason for going to work every day, and I count my lucky stars that I have been given the team that I have. They make the tough days better and the good days great.

2. I am thankful for my Cambridge Consultant, Claire. 4 weeks ago I started on a rather scary journey of self improvement. I found Claire, spoke to her ab…

Moving on.

I realised something the other day. That is not nearly specific enough or dramatic enough for this story. Let me start again...
I had a startling realisation the other day. I think Scotland and I are starting to go our separate ways (and I am not talking about Brexit) I was in Glasgow a few weeks ago, and I went on a tourist bus tour. I actually went on it twice, and I loved it. I got to see all the attractions I have wanted to see over the years: The Cathedral, the Necropolis, The Transport Museum, The People's Palace. It was very similar to something I did just before I left Edinburgh, my own little way of saying goodbye. When I got on the train home, I realised that in my own wee way, I was saying goodbye to Glasgow. Other than a course there on the 11th of May, I have no idea when I am going to be there next. I have no gigs booked, my upcoming flights to Ireland are all from Edinburgh.  I feel rather sad that my attachment to Glasgow has severed. In my head it was where I would…
