Daily Writing Journal: Something Someone Gave Me

A gift from my aunt

The gold bracelet was a thank you gift from one of my maternal aunts. Sis had volunteered my services to bake a Jamaican Rum cake for her 60th birthday party.  I think they were talking and I my sister mentioned I baked cakes and also did some decorating.  So after Sis volunteered me, she told me about it.  Normally, I used to just bake for my nuclear family but I agreed.

So I soaked the raisons in rum for about a month or two, and made the big cake. She has a big party at a posh hotel - a four three course meal with dancing,  and Sis and I carried it down.

This is a faded photo of it in my kitchen. Here theme was yellow so I made flowers with yellow petals. I put her name of the board but cut that out for her privacy reasons.

 And she was very happy with the finished product especially when someone rang her to say it was one of  the best Jamaica cake he'd ever tasted.

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.
