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.

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.
