Pret mushrooming all over London, Walk by the River, Goal settings, business plans and eating cake.

This morning I found another sign for Pret. Do we really need another Pret in my area? They are becoming like McDonalds. Then again I think at some point McDonalds had shares in them but then sold them to a private equity firm. Not sure. Anyway it's a very aggressive expansion underway.

Took pictures of the hoardings.






After which I took a walk down Bankside to get to my morning meeting. It was cold and rather crowded. I sort of took the wrong route to where I was going.



At my meeting, I had the good fortune of meeting with two savvy professionals in a super brand. It was great because one of gave me some sage technical  advice. It was like a light switched on, so I was about to see things from a different perspective. So I took a lot more and also a way to understand more depth what I was doing. It was fairly simple and basic but it changed my perspective of how I thought about things.


Now of some goal setting. I have lot of plans and things to do so I need to stream line all these goals - since overwhelms.  My friend is the same, so we have decided to do goal setting together. Yes, with check in days and no excuses. It's very scary since we are both gobby - that is loud.

As you probably guessed I write. And now I want to develop a plan to sell my books. However I'd rather self-publish and I need to have a plan for that. My friend is very creative and talented at many things so now it's narrowing it to what she wants to take forward.  Same with me.

So it will be interesting going forward. As I said it just to check in to see how far we have gone with out plans.

Nothing much happened at work today. Had lunch - quiche and salad. And some kinda pudding. It was nice.

Now off to bed. I have a big day tomorrow as I'm travelling for the day.

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
