1. I can't believe it is 2012 already!
Happy New Year everybody!
I hope you all had a super celebration.
2. I can't believe that I haven't written on this in nearly a month.
Shame on me.
Shame on me.
But in my defence I do not own a computer
or a laptop
or anything that connects to the internet.
But hopefully I will soon.
Donations will be welcome!
3. Scotland is going super.
I really love it here.
Have you ever arrived at a place and instantly thought "Home"?
Well that is kinda what has happened.
Our little flat is really cute.
(I had to resist the urge to write "wee flat" there... jeez)
and as James and I have no entertainment other than books, the radio and each other's company
we've really been spending some quality time together.
And are practically inhaling the words off the pages of our NEW books!
Yes! New Books! We've started to restore our library.
It is heavenly!
4. James is reading a super book at the moment.
I got it for £3 in a shop called fopp (or something similar)
It is about the gypsy way of life and their culture.
There is a review of it HERE.
I had a sneaky look at a few pages and I got hooked.
You should read it if you have time.
It looks mega!
I found a wonderful collection of Ernest Hemingway stories and novels for a whole £2.
I have never really read much of his work before.
I'm already in love and I'm only half a novel in!
Oh! I've forgotten what number I am on...
5? I found out something that interested me greatly this week.
Do you know the song "The Lion Sleeps Tonight"?
Well, in the French version,
he doesn't sleep.
He is dead.
I don't know why I found that so erm...
significant that I felt I should mention it
but I did.
I've been telling everyone I meet also!
6.There are two more songs that are featuring greatly in the lives of Lu and James at the mo...
Red Solo Cup
an adorable song about a donkey!
Though for a while there James thought
Dominic the Donkey
was actually called
Dominate the Donkey.
I asked no questions.
My time has come to bid adieu
but I will say,
Send me your addresses
and get writing some letters!
I want post!!
