Waitrose christmas treats samples on display. Travelled to Milton Keyes for a conference.

Outside Milton Keyes Station
















I went to Milton Keyes today for a conference which was great and well worth attending. It's to do with my profession. The great thing about meeting other professionals in your field is that you find out you aren't alone in some experiences. Also there was advice, and good words to take home. So it was very positive and uplifting.

We had two fellows of the professional body give an presentation and answer questions. As well the active associates for organising it. It was well worth attending. In fact lots of people like myself travelled from all over to attend this event.


Virgin Carriage

This is a picture inside the Virgin Train. It was okay I guess. Still a bit cramped. What I noticed is that first class was a lot smaller than the old intercity seats. I sat behind some TV production staff who were name dropping and saying how they had to attend certain shows and laugh on cue.

To be fair I've been to two filmings of TV shows. One at the BBC TV centre in Manchester where you are given cheap wine and instructed to laugh and clap on cue. Then I visited the Alan Carr Show in the London.  The staff weren't as nice as the BBC. They were pretty snobby and again we were told what to do.  All this were a few years back so might have changed.



Stood out station. I haven't travelled by train in a long while but all the routes are owned by different companies which makes it slightly annoying. In the past one could just hop on any train. Now it's Midland this or Virgin that.



I feel asleep and woke up at my destination. Good thing it was the last stop. Popped into the local Waitrose where they had some food tasting on display. The Heston mince pies tasted nice. More filling than the normal brand. 


I had a little more of this.

Nothing much apart from that. But I guess making a trip to another city, doing a bit of networking with fellow professionals and coming home is a lot. I also have lots to think about.

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.

Weekly update. Verdict on Check It movie, lack of black male role models and normal boring stuff. Oh and I'm still fat.

Hello everyone! So new focus. Yes, I never know what to write about. Never know what’s interesting so I’m just going to write for myself…if that makes sense. There are slew of blogs trying to change the world, radicalise the world, and revolutionise the world so I’m not doing that here. Not am I going to think - oh will people find this interesting or boring. To be frank, I’m a pretty boring person but hey ho let me write.  I’m thinking of changing my gym. Well right now I’m a member of Virgin Active Health Club which styles itself as a life style gym, and to be honest the only thing I use is the hot tub, sauna and steam room. In the three years I’ve been a member, I’ve only been in the gym about ten times, gone for two classes - they are always fully book so I only really just use the hydro-pool/spa, and steam room. I’m a member of the Islington Angel branch which is were all the posh liberals are.  This is a picture of the spa, and pool. The pool can be a bit chill at times.
