London Hood: Regent's Park - Avenue Gardens and some of the Broadwalk.


This is mostly filled with pictures more than anything, but not enough to do the park justice. 

Regent's Park is one of the parks, I visit once in a while. There was a time when I used to walk there on early Saturday mornings. It's huge and I have a feeling most users tend to keep to one area of the park. I haven't really got much to say other it's a very nice park, with lots of open spaces. 

There tends to be lots of activities in the summer with an open air theatre, summer food fair, charity races and other events. At times they even had exhibitions or installations around the park.  

I tend to stick to Avenue Gardens which is south if I have my bearings right, I rarely go beyond that bit. However there is also a boating lake and shamefully, I've probably only been to Queen Mary's garden a couple of times but again it depends on your preference/area.

However you can walk towards the London Zoo, though it is probably nearer another entrance. And its very active on Saturdays where hoards of kids practice for football matches or league. It's nuts. When I was younger - like teen and early twenties, I used to attend a lot of summer picnics in this park, especially Avenue Gardens park.


Behind the bushes...I thought of having my characters sneak behind a bush and you know...I'm not so sure given it's cold but probably in summer. So maybe this park will feature in the next one...

This was a blackbird in the Boardwalk.

This is from the broadwalk where most people walk their dogs. The tall tower is the BT tower, another London landmark.
Some ducks looking beyond. At what, I have no idea.


I thought I'd take a picture of my walking shoes. To honest, if I didn't have these, I probably wouldn't have featured the park. 

I feel rather sheepish, I don't set any of my stories in London, it has beautiful locations, then again my fictional USA city is based on London in a way....And some novels are partly set here....such as the one I'm currently stuck on.




It's worth a visit, and there is so much to see, you can even walk to Primrose Hill where you'd probably catch a celeb or two since that's where some of trendy ones live.

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
