No Books Allowed (#15)

Welcome to No Books Allowed. This is a new monthly feature hosted by me, used to  discuss things things in life which aren’t connected to books. This post can be used to talk about days out, music, TV, video games, films etc for all those book bloggers out there who do occasionally do stuff other than read and go to book events! The feature is usually posted on the last Thursday of the month unless that coincides with a blog tour/other book event.

April 2014 
April has been and gone and all I can say is that I barely saw it. In between my social life, reading, work and family I honestly don’t think I’ve stopped at all this month and it looks that might be continuing for some time yet. 

This months post is a bit late because I struggled to actually sit and write anything last week. Easter weekend was not a fun one for me and top it with a crazy busy working life at the moment I don’t think I could tell you where I even was last week, my head was up by backside I think! 

This months post will be a bit short too, I thought I’d share with you a pic of a tiger wanting a belly rub from Chester Zoo and an awesome night out that me and my friends had for my friends Hen Weekend. I can’t believe that one of my close group of friends who I met at uni is actually getting married, it seams crazy to think about considering she met her partner at the same time I met mine and it seams like yesterday some of the time! I had such a great weekend in Chester though and I really hope Kim did too, I can’t wait to see her get married next week! 

Brand New at Manchester Academy

Then Good Friday saw a trip into Manchester to take my stepson to his first gig as part of his 14th birthday present. We went to see Brand New who were incredible as always but L did complain a lot about his ears ringing, being too hot and his legs hurting. I told him that if you come out of a gig and your legs don’t hurt, your voice isn’t shot and you’re not sweating like a pig you’ve done something wrong! 

And then just cos the crazy wasn’t enough I went to see my parents over Easter weekend. They have been in the country since my Nana’s 80th last month in the hopes that the doctors here may be able to find out whats wrong with my mum as she hasn’t been well for a while and Bulgarian doctors couldn’t do anything for her. Unfortunately I arrived in the North East on the saturday morning to find that she had been taken to hospital, where she has been ever since. Basically her lower body decided to stop moving so they took her in and they are doing tests etc. We’re waiting to hear more but it would seam that my parents are on their way back to live in the UK which will be nice – its just a shame its under these circumstances. 

So as you can see, it was already pretty hectic. Throw in my bosses deciding that our office could be moved in a weekend, the weekend after a magazine went to print and before the new website (which I’m running) will launch and various goings on at work and I honestly can say its not surprising that I’m so tired when I get to bed that I zonk out. If it wasn’t for Game Of Thrones coming on soon (at the time of writing this post) I would be there already. 

Thanks for listening to my gable and hope you all had a great April! 
  • I’m sorry to hear your mum isn’t well Raimy, I hope the doctors are able to figure out what the problem is & get her fixed up ASAP. I bet it’ll be nice to have them living closer again but it’s a shame it’s because she’s not well
