Monday - show me your desk! Clutter desk with books, purse and iPad.

My desk - Anna Aden

As you can probably tell by now, my desk acts as extra storage space. So as per normal starting from the lower left handside. That is my burgundy or red wine mulberry purse. I got it in the sale a few years ago, at House of Fraser, I like high end designer bags because they tend to last longer, saying there I have two I need to fix.

One is a Gucci messenger bag and the other is a Hispanitas but I think it will cost far more to fix them than the what I bought them from. The Gucci is about ten years old and Hispanitas probably older - note these are just daily-use (hence the state) casual bags. The messenger is really grubby and I was going to throw it out, but who throws out a Gucci bag? Anyway, let me not digress.

Moving up is my copy of On Editing by Corner-Bryant and Price which I've been actively using. Some greats ideas and not so great ideas, but on the whole I'm finding it value for money. So I'll be using elements of it for the next draft pass. Under the book, is my novel-in-progress notebook and then the folder with the manuscript.

Beyond that is my box of posts-its. The Fresh Box originally had some soap in it which as wash away all my sweat and tears. It was a gift from Sis. Moving to the right, my pen holder and a new book I'm reading. I haven't started it but Celia Imrie is one of my favourite comic actresses. Underneath that the Innocent Wife by Amy Loyd, and I have finished that. It's a story about a stan or super-fan of a death row prisoner who eventually marries him. It's different from the usual psychological thriller, in that it's written in the third person point of view, and it feels almost documentary-like. Very factual. I read on Goodreads (I tend to read reviews after I've read the the book), it was based on some Netflicks series. It's also rather graphic and gory in bits, I just picked it up out of interest. In the UK, that's all the seems to sell.

Next to that is the book on Mastery, yes, I think it's been on my desk for nearly a while now. Moving down towards the lower right hand-side is my pencil sharpener,  iPad and a Society of Author's bookmark which says 'I'm an author so technically this is work'.

Finally, a pencil drawing of still-life objects - a tea-set on a tray.

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.
