Weekly round up: Quiet week due to under the weather, went to Mighty Hoopla in Brockwell Park



I've had a bad cold for most of the week, which knocked me out badly so nothing much happened. On Saturday, I went to a festival called Mighty Hoopla in Brockwell Park, South London. I wanted to do something different this summer, and having never being a festival I decided on this one. The acts where mostly cheesy pop and about three music stands.

For some reason, I was on the mailing list last year, so when it came up this year, I asked Sis if she wanted to go and she agreed. I opted for the VIP tickets, which was nothing special only there were proper toilets (no plastic portaloo business) in the VIP enclosure - still long queues.

There were also 'intimate' celeb DJ sets, and two bars. I realised bars were very important at festivals because the bars out side the VIP enclosure was very very long.  It was an extra £20 on top of the tickets so that was reasonable for peaceful atmosphere in the VIP enclosure.




The festival was very chilled and had a carnival like atmosphere, and there was so much to do so Sis and I didn't really stick to one area, we just round the festival enjoying ourselves. Headlining at the end was Chaka Khan. We stayed for a few songs but left before the big exit rush. The music was drowning her voice, I don't think she did a voice sound check.

We also caught a bit of  Jamelia, I must say All Saints were the best performance on the main stage. And Samantha Mumba just turned up for the paycheck/cheque. She sounded terrible, out of key, off tone everything. But it didn't matter since there was so much to do. And most people just came there for fun rather than seeing the acts. I caught her act as I was going to get some food.

Overall it was a great day and evening out and it didn't rain.

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.
