Weekly Round Up: Discovered a rarely used Liz Claiborne handbag in closet, Cyprus Night in London, A walk on the Southbank.

General Walking

This week I decided to do a little more walking to count as exercise, I'm not currently using the gym despite my membership. I'm just tired when I get home, and in a rush to work in the morning. Plus I do writerly things, so that is also a time-suck.

Anyway with such a sedentary lifestyle, I've had to increase somehow. If you remember, I even got myself a pair of walking shoes so no excuses. And there hasn't been - I've been walking a lot more on my route to walk. The walking shoes have been excellent - worth the money. Merrells.

Before that it was I would wake up, walk about five minutes to my transport link, get dropped literally in front of my office block, sit at my desk for eight hours plus. Go back to transport link, get dropped five minutes from home. At home, I'd be too tired or either I'd work on my novel. So very little. Now I'm walking for at least thirty minutes a day, and up to the hour and an half on clear days. 

Cyprus Night at the Brunswick Shopping Centre

Big Momma and I attended a lavish public event to pay tribute Christos' Chris' Lazari. He died tragically a few years. He was a generous and distinguished member of the community, so his tribute and to honour his memory was a public event with entertainment, good live music, free food and drink.

I forgot my phone at home, yes, this does happen from time to time, so I couldn't take pictures.

It was said, he loved a good dance so what better to celebrate him than a great party! He was also a generous man, so in that same tradition this party was for EVERYONE!  It was awesome and we had a great time. Thousands of people came, I kid you not. Great food, too! He was a billionaire who shared his wealth. So we ate, drank and were merry!

Found a small Liz Claiborne handbag in my closet

Not newish per se, it was just one of smaller handbags I've probably only used about four times since I got it. It's a Liz Claiborne and I got a few years from either New York or Miami - not sure which.  New York was good for shopping but Miami was fantastic! Anyway I'm still slacking on getting my regular handbag fixed so I needed an alternative.

I've probably never really used it because it's such a small bag (it looks so much bigger in the picture) however it's forced me to cut down all the stuff I normally carry in my handbag. So now I just have my purse, and work ID, then again I carry supplement bag with my books.

I also need to take care of this one a bit more since it probably won't be as durable as ones that need repairing. Maybe, I'll just get a new one...who knows.

Walking  towards Westminster Bridge on the Southbank.

I haven't been down this end for years, however it was such a lovely afternoon on Friday, that I decided to take a walk. In the picture is the London Eye, the undercroft which is an area under the Southbank centre that was highjacked  by skaters about twenty or more years ago, and is now a stake park - yeah moving on, then a street/bridge lamp, the old County Hall and the newish Jubilee Gardens, most of these developments have happened in the last ten years.

  It's changed so much and was basically a tourist mecca. I got to the old County Hall and that basically housed a few tourist attractions including Shrek! Oh dear. Anyway, I'm saving the rest of the pictures for the London Hood feature.

Bicycle Hire in London - pushbike goes crazy.

It's crazy, we even have uber bikes. These bikes are just hired with an app or something, apart from the Santander (Boris) Bikes which have docking stations. That is one on top right hand side, as you can see it's docked. The rest are left anywhere and probably tracked with GPS. I think they are operated via apps. They tend to be the choice transport for the local street pharmacist. It is what is it.

Editing is going well!

I'm pleased with my progress and it's going well. I'm not meeting the provisional deadline set which is at the end of this month, but I'm generally pleased.

So that's being generally my week, so have a good one, everyone!

Anna Aden!

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
