#50 Daily Writing Journal: Happy Valentine's Day! A few of my favourite things.

Happy Valentine's Day!


A few of my favourite things

My first blog feature from the schedule and I'm sharing four of my favourite things.

My Mulberry red wine purse 


My purse is about three or four years old. I tend to get high-end purses and bags because they last longer than just high fashion ones. Also because I needed something that could take some manhandling as I stuff it with things. In my early twenties I would get inexpensive purses only for them to fall apart after a year, so I started to invest in my purses and handbags. 

Before this, I had a Mui Mui purse but it got rather tatty as it had patent leather patchwork but after a few years it frayed so I decided the next replacement would be pure letter. I save for my purses and get them in the sale.

My Neals Yard Aromatic Diffuser


This was my Christmas gift from Sis and it served me well during my horrible recent cold. A few drops of essential oils.

My MacBook and Mug


The MacBook was a Christmas gift from Sis as well. It's a few years old and I got the fine china mug in a Christmas sale years ago. I've still got two. I tend to drink herbal teas out of them.

I guess that's it for this post.

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

Daily Writing Journal - #6 my urban lit African American romance. Went Christmas Shopping in House of Fraser and John Lewis.

Not much going. Well, it's Christmas! I went shopping yesterday after work to get some presents. I still have plenty more. House of Fraser is a good place to go. I feel it misses a lot of traffic because it's in between John Lewis and Debenhams.  I'm talking about departmental stores on Oxford Street, London. Okay let's talk about writing. Or maybe not. It's the festive season. In John Lewis , they also had the Elton John Experience. That was nice. I feel compelled to show some pictures but that means downloading all the pictures in my phone. I'll get more organised about this as I go along. Then again this is just a journal of my writing. So writing, well I said I'd skip that but I did manage to write another synopsis. What do you think? Synopsis Angelica Washington is a strong woman takes family responsibility seriously, but things aren't always as perfect as they seem .  A bad family ordeal and an impulsive urge leads her to the arms of a h
