The Bedroom Hour
I attended a gig recently at the Night & Day Café to watch a band I know well fromTwitter, Facebook and YouTube the band are The Bedroom Hour. The gig took place on Saturday the 10th of August 2013 at the Night & Day Café. I have to give a shout out to Harriet and Jules on the bar that evening. Thanks girls you worked hard that evening
The Night & Day Café is an intimate venue in The Northern Quarter in Manchester and well worth a visit. It is situated on Oldham Street.
I arrived at the BarCa on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in Castlefield, Manchester. Eager to meet people and listen to the live music.
The event was organised by Mancunian Promotions and called#OneDayOneLove Festival of Live Music. Mr Peeps was there to lend a hand. It started at 2.15 and ran 'till late.
Product Description for Second Nature on Amazon
Nature it’s all about us. There is the common stuff we see every day and thus hardly notice and then once in a while from somewhere, a new form of nature springs up. It is this latest new form that by a very personal introduction enters the lives of a number of ladies, for example Jasmine and Michelle; life throws them together as nature arrives unbidden and only by adapting can they hope ride out the adventure. One thing is very certain no one that comes in contact with Second Nature will ever be the same again.
Product Description for Lone House on Amazon
Sometimes a job offer can lead you in a new and wonderful direction, sometimes it can leave you screaming in the dark. Is there such a thing as an offer that is too good to be true? Or is it merely that one needs to adapt and look for the pleasures it may bring.
Kate is a single woman in a dead end job; she dreams of changing her life’s direction, but until now she has done nothing about it. When she finally does, her desire to switch paths brings her to Lone House. Its name does this building no justice at all - only ‘Lone’ is accurate. The house stands isolated and empty; no one remembers ever seeing the owners and they have arranged for house sitters to live there. But these house sitters never seem to stay very long.
What secrets does the house shelter within its grounds? Will the next sitter go the way of the previous ones, where-ever that was?
Kate is to be the next resident at Lone House and soon finds things are not always as they seem. Some things are even better. The old house harbours secrets and lustful desires of its own. The question is: Will Kate adapt to her new life, taking advantage of what it offers, or will she flee back to the life she had before? One thing is for sure; everyone in contact with Kate and Lone House will find their lives changed for ever.
Coralli Restaurant and Apartments
As many of you know I have recently been on holiday to the beautiful Island of Rhodes. Therefore, I
feel this is the ideal opportunity to review some of the places I visited whilst there.
I stay at a lovely apartment complex called Coralli Restaurant and Apartments
Coralli is situated between Lardos and Pefkos and boasts stunning vistas. Famous for it's traditional Greek cuisine and also sporting a large pool (including an area for toddlers). There is also an area where there are computers that are pay as you go for a small charge and free Wi-Fi available.
This Blog post is a book review of a short story The Army of the Night and this short story is available to download for FREE. So a major bonus for you all there.
This is the short description from Smashwords.
It’s 1813. Napoleon’s army has to retreat from Spain to France, but the main pass across the Pyrenees is within reach of the British forces. In his search for an alternative route, Alaine Bellanger discovers more than just an ancient mountain trail. High in a cleft between two peaks, he finds something very strange — and someone even stranger. But who can he tell? And who would believe him?
I recently stayed at The Velvet Hotel on Canal Street in Manchester and this place is amazing! The staff are always especially lovely and obliging. The room I stayed in was one of their Velvet King Rooms, which was fantastic. We had our breakfast served in bed the following morning, for just an extra charge. Well worth it and the breakfast was brilliant.
The Velvet Hotel's thirteen King Rooms are by no means standard. They are decadent individually designed rooms. Incorporating en-suite bathrooms and king or over- sized king beds with exceptional quality bed and bathroom linens.
This week I am including a review of an absolutely fabulous restaurant I visited very recently called Grenache. This restaurant is situated in Walkden, Manchester.
This is a fine dining restaurant that uses fresh local produce as they say "without the toys"
Their lead chef is Mike Jennings and he is a Michelin trained chef. Having worked for Shaun Rankin, Gary Rhodes and Nigel Howarth.
As promised I have read and reviewed this wonderful book by Vanessa Wester and really can recommend this I gave it a well deserved 5 stars
This book is introduced with a prologue, which initially I didn't understand, but it really helped once the main story began to unfold
The opening chapter of Hybrid begins with our introduction to one of the main protagonist, Caitlin, and gives a narrative about her first semester at University and attempts to settle in on campus. We also begin to meet quite a few of the other minor characters and these fill out the narrative rather nicely.
