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.

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.
