Daily Writing Journal: My London Hood - Sunset at Hyde Park, then to Green Park - Fortnum & Mason's Window Display #FortnumsXHeinz

Hyde Park at Sundown/sunset
London Hyde Park at Sundown/sunset
I took this picture in Hyde Park, a few days ago.  I had a meeting in South Kensington, rather posh area of town. After the meeting, I was walking down to Hyde Park Corner - I love London open spaces and parks so whenever I have access to one, I'd rather walk than talk transport.

It was such a lovely vibrant evening that I decided to walk down Green Park and catch my train from Piccadilly Cirrus rather than Hyde Park Corner - this is our Underground transport system - a bit like a metro or transit system.

I passed a famous shop called Fortnum and Mason and it's window display it was advertising Heinz's baked beans and the Heinz's 150 year old Anniversary. There is even a hashtag #FortnumsXHeinz.  I didn't go in because it was rush hour and all I wanted to do was go home.

Apparently Fortnum and Mason was the first place that sold the brand back in the day. This was before common folks could afford to eat baked beans. I'm not a big Heinz baked beans fan, it's rather too savoury for me and I have sweet tooth. I much prefer Sainsbury's baked beans. This isn't to do with cost or anything it's just I prefer the taste and consistency but I know ride or die Heinz baked beans fans. A former colleague was one. It's a bit like people with their tea or coffee - I'm not brand loyal with that either.


 Quite interesting to know common place foods like chocolate, tea, coffee, baked beans were only for the super-rich when they first came out.

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
