Yes, I'm breaking the rules! How? I am only have a twenty pound note, you can see it's different in appearance from the five pound and ten pounds notes. Those are made from some polymer plastic thing. Don't ask me why.

Well apparently its more durable and less likely to be copied and made counterfeit, but the new design is yet to be rolled out to the twenty pound and fifty pound notes. Anyway, I need flexibility in my life and this challenge is getting a bit too much with me looking for change, or putting in IOUs so I'm taking CHANGE. Yes, that's right, I'm taking CHANGE FROM THE MONEY POT!

So I'm putting in a twenty pound note which means I'm getting three pounds back. So after opening the money pot, I dipped  my fingers in the jar and took out the three pounds coins.

I put the twenty quid (pound) note in the jar and that's all.

Now I have my three pounds change. Not sure what I'm going to be using it for though. Maybe I should dave it for next week so I only need to find £15. I think it's too early to do a count down. It will be interesting at the half way point, which will be week 26. Will I get there? Will I continue?

I've got one big to-do item on my list which is to open up an account. Yes, I keep on banging on about it  in this blog post challenge but I really mean it. Perhaps I need a deadline? A delivery date? Okay I'll say by the end of June, that is midway into the year, and it gives me a couple of months to sort out.

The only issue with banking the cash is that it will harder to spend, like I mean harder to access, oh well, I guess that is whole point of savings.

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.
