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.

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

HAPPY NEW YEAR! HAPPY 2022! My year of decluttering my creativity!

Happy New Year, Everyone! This was a quiet one, after watching two films last night I called it a night and woke up in the New Year. What films you ask? Guess Who with Bernie Mac, Ashton Kutcher and a lot of cringe worthy jokes. Then I watched Aloha with Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, this was bit better. It had strong moments but I could see why they said it didn't really have any direction. Was it a romance? Was it a military story? It was hard to say what the movie was...a lesson in premise and precision but it gave a nice fluffy feeling and I must say Emma Stone did a brilliant job and so did John Krasinski - he acted with heart.  However it's a nice film and I learn a lot from it, but I think it would have missed the market because there were too many theme or subplots or whatever. Overall a brilliant cast, great acting but the story struggled with doing too much.  Decluttering My Creativity  This year, I'm focusing on decluttering my creativity in the sense of completing
