Not much happened in July. It was summertime and the weather was fine...
It was a food festival though, and a music festival in our town, and we had a small party during the music festival which was a lot of fun :)
In early August my mom, dad and brother came for a visit. I celebrated my birthday, and my brother and grandmother's birthdays in Oslo, and we took a cruise to Kiel.
In early September my bestie, Live, came for a visit and we had another epic "fangirl" weekend :D Mom and dad came for another visit, and we celebrated TJ's birthday :)
In October I visited my folks, filmed my music video "Vampire Rock Song", had a check-up at the hospital before my hip surgery, celebrated Halloween, my hair got 90% blonde, and I had the very much awaited hip surgery.
In November I just tried to endure the worst pain after the operation, being on crutches and having limited movement. My mom and dad came and stayed for a while, helping me out. I managed to get out of the house to se "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald" at the movies, and just tried my best to chill and recover from the surgery.
In December my grandmother and grandfather came for a visit, I had a check-up at the hospital since it was six weeks since my surgery, and we did a lot of Christmasy stuff, chilling and watching a lot of movies, and of course; celebarated Christmas and New Year's :)
2018 started rather eventless, but my bestie, Live, came for a visit in late January, and we had one epic "fangirl" weekend with lots of movies, good food and drinks, and stayed up all night talking. She's my sister by choice and I love her to bits <3
February: My hubby and I visited my folks and saw Operation: Mindcrime and 'Till Death Do Us Part live. We also celebrated Valentine's Day.
March was rather uneventful, slowly coming out of winter hibernation. But we went to Bergen at the end of the month and did some shopping and "fine wine and dining".
In April my album "Bloodlust" was released. On April 9th, and was welcomed by metalheads around the world.
In May we celebrated Norway's Constitution day, and my grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary.
In June my grandparents came for a visit, and my hubby, mother-in-law and I went to Oslo and saw Megadeth and Judas Priest live. I met a few people from Instagram, and not to mention the Metal God himself; Rob Halford. And Ian Hill, David Ellefson and Kiko Loureiro, and Dave McRobb.
We also went on holiday towards the end of June, starting with a check-up at a hospital regarding my hip. We also saw Helloween - Pumpkins United at Tons of Rock (it was the only band worth seeing the day we had tickets), and spent most of the vacation in Sweden shopping, eating good food and relaxing.
My name's Marita. I'm a musician and songwriter from Norway. I'm interested in music, books, movies, clothes and more.
