Christmas Lunch is agreed, all on board. Goal setting and Time management working well.

Lots happened at work today. Sat in on presentation meetings with Head Honcho which again was a master class in my profession. I'm learning to learning. Normally sometimes as a pro one can get defensive about certain things and comes over slightly agitated so having working for two high cablibre pros is worth more than their weight in gold to me. One learns not only technical skills but also communication skills. I've also taken to reading the industry trade rag. Yeah, I know, taking career seriously.
Venue rang back and confirmed we can order either from the al carte menu or christmas menu. What is now in disccusion is the discretionary service charge. Anyway I'm just going to pay the deposit and see what comes up. It's a nice venue, we are getting an airy dining room - away from the crowds - overlooking the beautiful garden. And it seems everyone is happy with it. Well mostly.
Fabulously Glamorous gave me a mediation piece which is very truth. I've pondered on it, as it's to do with goal setting. Yeah, as you can see that is been my on-going theme for the last few weeks. Well it mentioned about focusing and celebrating what one can achieve. Keeping goals realistic (I don't think I do that at times, I overwhelm myself with lots and lots of things). Also a quote from a Margaret Sangster - you can google her if you want. I'm just paraphasing. It goes along the lines we worry about things left undone, not the things we have done.
Anyway I'm still learning to keep my goals realistic which at times can be disappointing. I'm a dreamer at heart. But realism gives my achievements more movement. And it's harder. Especially when dealing with the unknown with the element of risk. Proping up oneself with goals though no time to do them, is kind of comforting.
Got results about on the course I'm rushing to complete. I have two assignments, and then it's done. Believe it or not, it's a grammar course, but really for editing and rewriting my novel. That is not on my current to do list.
Momma AG rang to say about a christmas party this weekend, so might have to get a new dress. Don't ask me about the starving diet. It lasted all of five minutes. I might consider going to Weight watcher in the New Year. Maybe pencil in my gym. Not sure. I have all the weight watchers stuff, even the calculator since I joined a few years ago. Need to think about it. Ponder. Maybe I do too much pondering. Hence my actions plans.
Is there any point dieting during the party season?

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.
