Weekly Round up: Food market at Southbank Waterloo, Performance in the Festival Hall, other things.

Nothing happened this week, it was rather quiet. Perhaps, I should keep a journal or something. Anyway on Friday I went to the Southbank Street Food market, Street Food is such a big concept in London nowadays but it typically just burgers, chips, wraps, curry and some Pad Thai. No real variation, and it tends to be overpriced. But at least most take card payments now. 

I didn't buy anything because I had a big lunch at another street market near my workplace. So I walked past, to my destination. Lately I've taken to writing at Festival Hall but over the past week, I found just sitting in the Foyer of the Queen Elizabeth Hall was nicer. It's a bit darker in there, not as much natural light as the Royal Festival Hall but there is enough for me to write. 

Anyway on Friday there was a performance by a young artist. I didn't catch his name, but he was good. 

Blog activities review

I'm cutting down on my blog posts, I'll continue the 52 week challenge and my desk, but I'm not doing the films anymore unless they are part of this weekly catch up. Also I'm doing the writing stuff monthly now. It's just I have about 156 blog posts this year which I think is a bit too much,  so I think a review is due.

Maybe I'll make My London Hood fortnightly. I have the picture in my phone but it's just writing it up. Or maybe monthly. I'll think about it.

Other stuff

That's pretty much being the highlight of my week, part from catching up with Sis and going shopping with Big Momma. Oh and did I say I was counting calories. I managed to lose about 2kg or 4 pounds doing that. I think it's also the fact I walking more. 

I need some summer clothes, maybe a new pair of jeans and light tops. Oh, and I visited the physiotherapist/physical therapist (US), something about my knees. It's been painful and I reckon the weight does it no favours - it is what it is. So  I've been given some exercise to do, which I need to start since I'm seeing them again in a months time. 

I also need to book a break off. Normally I go to Spain in the summer but due to changing jobs that hasn't happened. 

That's it from me.

Have a great week

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
