Glasgow Lu

I am writing this from my very comfy hotel in Glasgow, four days into my week here.
I found out yesterday that I will only be here for one week, yet again Lou is on the move!

I have a weird love for this sprawling city.
Perhaps it was home in a past life, or something. I don't know.
What I do know is that I always seem to feel rather tranquil here.
I always feel at home.
I love it.
I really do.

I think this week has been badly needed.
I have slept so much, walked so much, and spent time with my friends.
I have missed that lately. My lifestyle has left a lot to be desired.
I adore my new job.
It gets better with each day.
It is by no means perfect, but I love learning new things,
and this is a constant lesson in a whole different side of retail.
The team in the store have been so kind, and supportive.
They are more proof that the people are what make Glasgow great.

I recently read a book recommended to me by my pal Craig.
It is called the 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effect People'
I found it sitting on a filing cabinet in Elgin and asked to borrow it.
The book was inspiring. Thought provoking.
One of the habits is 'Sharpening the saw'
It was rather tough to admit it, but I have allowed myself to get quite blunt.
So I decided, while here to join Slimming World.
If I want to be the best that I can be, I need to care of myself in the same way I take care of my career.
I need accountability. That is why this is such a good idea for me.

SO, I'm away to my bed. Work in the morning.
The life of Lu is finally starting to come up trumps.
As I like to say, ;If it is meant for you, it won't pass you'
and I am very excited to see what ends up at my feed.

Until the next time amigos...

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

Life of Lu 7/6/2012

I love Edinburgh. I think you should know. I love it truly. Every day I feel more settled. Every week I feel new friendships grow deeper. I really am content. So content that I sing. Poorly. I should apologise for that. I really like my new job. Sometimes I feel my head may explode with information. Then it digests and I feel capable again. It is nice to use my brain again. It does help that I have wonderful colleagues. They make it easy to love the job. I will be working with them for at least 7 more weeks. Then I finish my training. After that... who knows? Euro 2012 fever has taken over our wee flat. It bores me terribly but the boy loves it, so I pretend. I pretend quite well. I predict Russia to win. He reckons Portugal. I hope I win! I have a new cousin! And one on the way. I wish I could meet them soober than October. Hurry up October! I should mention that we're popping over in October. Pints? Anyone? Lastly, I received an amazing gift at the we

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 pit
