Where I disappeared to!

If anyone had been wondering why it has been so long since I last posted on there I would like to apologise and say I have way too much going on. I had a minor accident in my car with a Lorry about 2 weeks ago, no one was hurt thankfully but I’ve been really busy and a little stressed trying to sort it out. Basically the lorry came over in my lane on a roundabout and clipped the front of my car, however the driver did not want to accept liability so I’ve just been trying to sort everything out with my insurance, car repairs and getting a curtsey car. The good news in that the driver’s insurance has accepted liability so it’s one issue I’m not worried about.  My work is getting busier and busier, we are taking about 1000 calls daily between 6/7 of us. So I’ve been really bogged down with work and I’ve had to stay after work sometimes to catch up with every thing that I needed to do.  I am now looking for a new job so I’ve completed some applications which again has taken time away from reading. To be honest in the last 3 weeks I have one read 3 books and 2 of those were a reread. I have literally no time at all to read.

I have decided I do need to make more time to read and blog though because it helps me to relax. I’m looking forward to catching up on what blog posts I’ve missed.

I am currently reading The Jewel by Amy Ewing. I just started it and am 6 pages in, because I got my Kindle out to read at lunch and I forgot it at work when I came home. I do live 15 mintues away from work but I couldn’t manage to go pick it up before my office shut. So i’m reading a paperbook. I am glad I picked The Jewel up though as it seems intriguing.

If I’ve missed anything important happen in the blog/book world then let me  know 🙂


Update and What I’m Reading #3

I am back from holiday! It was good, I went to Saudi Arabia (we visited Madinah & Makkah to be exact) for 7 days and then was in Dubai for 3 days so had 10 days of loads of sun! I did not actually get much reading done in this time because I went to Saudi Arabia for a pilgrimage and to pray so did not read there. I’ve added a picture from my time in Madinah, this is me after the afternoon prayer. It was about 30 degrees!


I did read some books in Dubai and so expect those reviews up soon.

What I’m currently reading is Ignite by Lily Paradis. It’s good so far but I’m only about 7 chapters in so we’ll see how I feel at the end of it. Though I have to say wow to Dean Powell, I want to give the book 5 stars based on how much I love him so far. I included the book synopsis incase anyone wants to check it out too!


After her father’s untimely demise in a mining accident and her mother’s abandonment, Lauren Lindsay is no stranger to loss. She’s used to living life for one person: herself. That is, until another family tragedy thrusts three children into her care and uproots her life in ways she could never imagine.

Lauren’s first instinct is to run, until she meets their striking, mysterious neighbor Dean Powell. Their immediate chemistry and his connection with her late father just might be enough to keep her in town long enough to uncover pieces of her past that she never had answers to. Dean’s shady past and her reluctance to trust him could cost her the life she’s always been searching for, but will she run back to her old life?

Or will she choose to stay and live the life her father always imagined for her?
