Hobbles and my day and pictures of yummy cake. A chat about CDs vs digital tunes.

I work up super-early looking at my novel and trying to write the end. Then I dragged myself out of bed, showered and found a library book which had been missing. However the worse thing was I forgot to renew my library books so I got fined.

I still want to know why the council can't send alerts for renewal. I bet fines are a income source in their accounts. Went to visit the new Waitrose in Kings Cross. It's very flash. Posh but doesn't have much in it. What I mean is that you can't do  real shop for food. It's kinda like a flagship window display. I'd say my local one has more variety in terms of shopping for families.

However it had a brilliant bakery, the cook school is located there and a juice bar. I'm not sure the target market however my local Waitrose shall not be losing me to it.

Next thing was I was pondering about the advice given in the self-publishing conference and the best way to go marketing one's self. I think I need to focus on the things I like.

Mainly food, talking about food, taking pictures, a bit of drawing and other odds and ends. Not sure yet. Will see. I like taking pictures of cakes and food in general.



This was at afternoon tea at Sketchies off Regent's Street, a send off present from my colleagues at my former place of work. I had a fabulous time because I saved it to celebrate a special occasion.


This is a Chinese cream sponge cake. I get this for every birthday.  I just love it!


This was a delicious looking red velvet cake however was too stale so I returned it. It was sold in one of those trendy cinema bars (which shall remain nameless) and just didn't justify the price. I think because they wanted to be trendy the kept the cakes out which made them stale very quickly. Haven't been back since.

Back to my day. Bought a nice slice of chocolate cake from the new Waitrose - my phone went flat so no pictures. Shared that with family. Family gave me a new CD player. Yes, I'm still using CDs - they are master copies, according to Sharon Osbourne and don't get corrupted or deleted in error. I'd rather by a CD than an iTunes MP3. I do buy MP3s but only for singles.

The problem is when one changes or upgrades devices or open new accounts. It's hard to keep track. Give me CDs any day. I even have some records vinyl knocking about. Digital gets corrupted. I know  CDs get scratched as well. Anyway people do what they want.

However I do like ebooks - I have many - I buy many  however for technical books if I really use them, I get the print version. I know. I know. I know. I need to get with the times.

That's it.

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
