Tired and it rained.

It was pouring with rain this morning so I had to be careful on the pavement. With all the leaves on the ground it can become slippery. Got in to work. I think on time or before not sure. Did work. Colleague suggested I went on holiday for two weeks soon. I am tired that granted. I do feel drained at times but there is so much going on. I need to plan better. Well not plan, prepare first then plan. She reckons a full break away from everything. So I can slow down. That is what I need. I'm constantly on the go.

Work, work and more work. I need some sun and a change of scenery otherwise it's just duggery.
Not sure when but need to think about it. Even if just a weekend break as a trophy break. I need to think about it or look. I don't mind going to the Costa Dara. This is are some pictures from when I went to Benidorm about four years ago.


This the hotels and resorts on the beach.

From a lookout point on the beach.
The view from my hotel room. It was okayish.

So maybe something like this. I'm taking off Christmas but something sooner. Just to slow down. The thing is after work I'm writing as well so there is no real down time.

Lunch was boring so I had a bagel with ham and tomatoes. However it was another colleague's birthday and she bought a chocolate cake to share. That threw the obesity drive out of the window and I had a few pieces to eat.

Came home. Tube was packed. The DLR was on strike. Got home okay, had a chat with family for a while. Had a brillant critique and edit from my critique pal. She is amazing and so supportive. She is the business.

I have a few work related stuff I need to do. Oh well. Nothing more to say. I've said it all I guess. Now to look for weekend breaks or mini breaks or holidays. I'm yawning now so off to bed.

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

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.

Daily Writing Journal:Kellogg Rebrands Cereals to standout the brand name Kellogs!

Walking round my Sainsburys for my weekly shopping, I suddenly noticed that Kelloggs had rebranded most of it's popular cereals.  At first I was confused but realised the big differences. Can you tell?

The first difference is Kelloggs has decided to manage it's brand name bigger and more dominant when before it was the actual cereal. Why? It suddenly occurred to me this was to make it stand out from the imitators such as the shop own brand.

As you can see from comparing the old Kelloggs packaging and Sainsbury's packaging there is little difference. Both have the product content in bold and both have the same colour packaging - blue. If you just wanted bran flakes then might as well get the cheaper one.

However with the new packaging, Kelloggs is screaming that you are getting Kelloggs brand, not just bran flakes. Actually the new packaging without the bold Kelloggs branding is pretty more similar to Sainsbury's.

They have also greyed out the traffic light, so it'…

My London Hood: The Postal Museum in London

I know communications has moved on and now everyone just uses text messages, emails and DMs or social media but The Postal Museum was a gem I found tucked in the depths of Clerkenwell (a London District), one day as I was going to Gails an artisan bakery.

 It was free entry and had lots of activities for children and adults. The battered green post box on the left hand-side is the first ever, the next was a special edition for Queen Victoria and then gold one for some celebration. Not sure what, it was probably the Olympics or something.

Though small the had plenty of display, like old carriages, and tales of highway robbers and a few fire arms on display.








This was the motorbikes for the telegram boys, no need for that with email now.

Old fashioned telephones and there was a telephone box as well.

You can see a few around central London, but mostly for tourists.

A few display of war time letters, they were very poignant, and a few sad, others happy.

This was a sad one during one of t…
