About Me

^This is me^


I am Lucy, better known as Lu or sometimes Lulu, depends on how the mood takes me. I am a 36 year old, single mother, to one daughter, who is about to leave school. I live in the UK right in the middle of the country, where the sun rarely shines and rain is a common feature.

This is not my first blog. I have been blogging on and off for over 10 years. I maintained my last blog for over 5 years but now it’s time for a new start. Over the years my thought processes and writing have evolved. I now feel it is time to reflect this, in this new Blog.

The title of this blog “What Is Hoped For” is inspired from one of my favourite scriptures found at Hebrews 11.1. I needed the title to reflect my new found hope in the future. I have spent enough time in the past crying over things I will never be able to change. It is now time to smile, accept my life for what it is and enjoy it.

I have never considered myself to be a “narcissist” but this blog is going to be about me, all about me. Thinking about it like that is a little disconcerting. I am going to try and entertain you all with my thoughts, plans, hopes, dreams, lists, reviews and more likely than not misadventures – if I pluck up the courage and share. I have no theme, at the moment no plan (big blogging no no right there), lets just see where it takes me.

As I mentioned earlier I have an obsession with making “lists”. I make lists about everything. According to something I read, making lists is a sign of a productive person, however I am one of the biggest procrastinators I know.

My biggest goal for 2016 – Is to get fit and lose weight. It is happening, very slowly due to being unwell but the pounds are disappearing slowly. I am also going running. My stamina is shockingly bad, but it is improving.

I love to read. I will read most things except anything that may make me lose sleep. I value my sleep, so anything that will scare me is out of the question. I am a big fan of classical literature and my favourite go to author is Jane Austen. Due to this I am drawn to reading the spin offs, sequels and prequels to her work. I don’t always enjoy them though.

My biggest love however is Disney. This year I am fulfilling a life long dream and going to Walt Disney World in Florida.I enjoy experiencing new things and plan on doing more travelling over the next few years, if finance and circumstances allow.

I am quite eclectic and take enjoyment in a variety of things, if I explained it all on this “About Me” page, you would be reading for a very long time and no doubt get very,very bored. I could go on… but if I do what will I have to blog about? I’m sure anything else you might want to know about me will appear on this blog at some point.
