Holiday vacation in Spain , stripping carpets and musing about my book and readers

Thanks for popping by this time around. I've just come back for a delightful ten days in Salou in Spain. The main reason why Salou is such an ideal destination apart from the sunny climate is that it's only about a two hour flight from London and then a twenty minute transfer from the airport to the hotel. Bonus!

It is located in the Province of Tarragona which is on the Costa Daurada.


I've been on lots of holiday but three hour flights and longer transfers can leave on worse for wear. So Salou is the only place I've been twice. I will consider going to other places but for now, by the time I book my vacation at work, I'm all cranky, stressed and too jittery about travelling. I would love to holiday in the UK but frankly it would be the same amount of time, and probably a bit more dearer - expensive. Saying this the pound to the euro was nasty - nearly one to one exchange rate!  It's the second time round, and near Barcelona. We didn't get up to much - eating, drinking and walks on the beach.



The first time round last year, we went to Barcelona Football club which was okay - I'm not a massive football fan but it was on the must dos. This time around we just chilled out, and did nothing.

When I say nothing it was more a change of scenery since I was busy working on my novel and thinking of ways to edit it. I've sort of managed an editing plan. So the real break was away from the hassles, drama and politics of work.

I also managed to look at my goals - well revise them to see what was valid and what wasn't. I decide it was best to focus on things burning my mind up which really was my novel. So the main thing on my mind - editing the novel.

I even to inspiration for one of my novels there. I shall be setting it somewhere similar!

I've come back to lots of things, the first is ripping up my carpets because I have an dust allergy - I live in area with continuous building works and that hasn't helped with my chest.  Work as well.


But that is a blog for another post.

Have a great weekend

Best wishes

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.
