Drawing some figures, did some shopping, watched TV, Saw some American breakfast cereal and twinkies

Work up today thinking about design. So I got out one of my old design books and decided to start with lines. I used to love lines. Everything is made up of a line. So I did a line outline of a picture. Then I made it to a cartoon. See below. He is wearing boxers.








Activated my facebook account again.  So it's there activated. Will be using it for some writing stuff later on. Not fussed at the moment. I just need to join all these groups and make 'facebook friends'. Oh dear. 

Went the supermarket and found the American shelf. I noticed beef gelatine was put in some breakfast cereals. Really? Why? The only animal products I eat with cereal is milk. Dairy. but gelatine? Come on, people. Plus it had a number of food additives I hadn't seen in years! Oats or Oatmeal is the way to go. Finally go to see what a twinkie looked like. I always assumed it was a chocolate bar of some kind. It's cake. Well it was super expensive at £7 nearly £12 but it was buy one get one free. I guess in time for Thanksgiving. Still too expensive to tempt me. So that is the American food Shelf in Tescos.


Outside the shopping centre there was a queue for a dance competition or audition. Lost of kids. Overhead a few conversations mainly about relationship drama. One lady was complaining her partner's friend didn't like her. Okay. Well apparently this lady had invited the friend her birthday only to get totally ignored. Like no show, no excuse, just blanking. How awkward is that? To be fair your partner's friends don't even need to acknowledge you exist. It's nice it everyone are friends but often than not, that's not the case.

Next,  I'm A Celebrity - a British reality show is looking pretty good. I might even watch it this time around. There are some hilarious characters on this time. Not good to be with in the jungle but they make fantastic TV. Shout out to Lady C, Paul and Ballantyne. They were all moaning about a can of soup. 

I watched some XFactor and thought the contestants are fresh, the judges banter is pretty boring - same old sound bits, yawn, yawn. Just because the judges are newish doesn't make it interesting. Still some good talent this time. Also some confusing ones.

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

Searching for office christmas party venue, celebrating Momma AG birthday.

Rang to sing Momma A G happy birthday! Got to work early and did some of my goal work. Also Accounting Guru Boss showed me an easy way of planning. She is a genius. It's that simple so I'm going to practice her method of planning.  I must say I've learn plenty. Working with her is like one long professional master class with private tuition.  Glamorous colleague also gave me tips on completing a goal related task. All tasks are like elephants tackle the largest on in the morning. Red Jumper colleague took the day off for Black Friday. Apparently he's waking up at early to go on the internet looking for deals after which he'll go to the shopping centre. Told him I was going to wait until boxing day to get a new purse. Then after all the excitement he was like 'What am I going to do on Cyber Monday." Glamorous and I went looking for some where for our team christmas lunch. She wasn't having us eat in a pub. She has high standards. She was okay abo

Daily Writing Journal - #6 my urban lit African American romance. Went Christmas Shopping in House of Fraser and John Lewis.

Not much going. Well, it's Christmas! I went shopping yesterday after work to get some presents. I still have plenty more. House of Fraser is a good place to go. I feel it misses a lot of traffic because it's in between John Lewis and Debenhams.  I'm talking about departmental stores on Oxford Street, London. Okay let's talk about writing. Or maybe not. It's the festive season. In John Lewis , they also had the Elton John Experience. That was nice. I feel compelled to show some pictures but that means downloading all the pictures in my phone. I'll get more organised about this as I go along. Then again this is just a journal of my writing. So writing, well I said I'd skip that but I did manage to write another synopsis. What do you think? Synopsis Angelica Washington is a strong woman takes family responsibility seriously, but things aren't always as perfect as they seem .  A bad family ordeal and an impulsive urge leads her to the arms of a h
