Daily Writing Journal: My London Hood - St Pancras Square - Where the Google and Universal Creatives hang out!


In between Kings Cross Station and St Pancras International (the train station to Europe) is the new St Pancras Square. New in that given most of the streets and squares in London are hundreds of years old. This is the home of Google and Universal. There are also the some typical restaurants and high-end fast food chains for those creatives to chow at. Namely Leon, a bar and another Far East restaurant.

What I find intriguing is the there appears to be some apple macs in the google offices, don't quote me on that. They also have a gym where you can see them working out, and it's rumoured they get free food, again rumoured or alleged.

This is the universal lot, the building looked unfinished but I didn't take a picture of that. I have an old but I needed to meet this.

What I find quite interesting is at lunch time, there is a particular restaurant at the back in the Granary Square where it seems full of people having lunch meeting on expense accounts.  It's very bizarre and weird because after 2 pm the restaurant practically empties.

This is a picture showing the St Pancreas station. There are lots of gothic and neo-goethic buildings in London which I never noticed before doing this blog. One rarely does around looking at building in one's home town. Normally, I'm just going about my business and interested in getting to my destination.

Doing this blog had made me appreciate the magnificence and magic of London's building. I don't take pictures at every opportunity or if I do, nor do I post them but I am appreciating  this city more. I do have some posh locations for my book - partly set in the fictional US city, Forechester and London  so I'll feature them when I'm writing a scene.

More information on St Pancras Square if you are ever visiting London.

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
