Fridays Mo 52 week Money Challenge - Week 19....Took midweek change from the money pot.

I used a different collage app which reduced the quality of the pictures so I can't increase this size as I normally do. Anyway, it's week 19 of the year and of the challenge.  As normal, I decided it was easier to take change from the money pot rather than give the correct change. You know that's how many vending machines make more money by demanding 'correct change' so if you put in more you never get any change. Have you being cheated that way? I have.

So starting from the lower left picture and working upwards and clockwise or to the right. I have a twenty quid note. The next picture is the twenty quid note with the money pot. I opened the money pot took my change of one quid out. The following picture is me plonking the twenty quid into the post. After that is closing the pot with my one quid change outside the box.

I had to change some notes, so I took from change from the money pot. Yes, breaking the rules again, but you know what? It was bound to happen. Had to break a twenty to give someone a tenner (ten pound note).

I wish I could say how interesting and inspiring this challenge is but it's not. It's a down right pain and irritating. It's always on my mind how I'm going to meet next week, be it time wise to take pictures or where I'm going to get the cash from. Its sucks. Why am I doing it? It's a challenge and I want to see how far I can get.

I'm thinking of moving this to my weekly round up. Maybe even my movie/film night since that is falling behind due to work. However this week I didn't get DVD movies, anyway I reported them to the place but they may come tomorrow. There is normally a backlog with the post/mail after a bank holiday.

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
