Weekly update: Music at South Bank Centre's Tonic Friday, family bereavement, bees buzzing away,Self indulgence

Music at South Bank Centre's Tonic Friday 


I'm a regular visitor as the Southbank Centre after work so I can do some writing, and every Friday they have a free music session called Tonic Friday. I caught a young man rapping last week, this time it was a jazz singer. I heard her during the sound check and stayed a while for the performance, it was very good.

My Aunt passed away yesterday.

Big Momma received tragic news that her sister passed away, it was very unexpected, so it been a strange weekend.  

Bees buzzing away


It's been a good summer for the bee population, I hope it is the local population rather than migrant bees.  I took this picture of the honey bees at work, outside Big Momma's home. With this said I've only seen a bumble bee about twice in my life, the rest of honey bees. It's a bit like the red vs grey squirrel. I've only seen a red once.

Self indulgence 


I've visited my favourite bakery shop called Cook and Konditor but apparently has now changed it's name to just Konditor. Interesting, maybe a silent protest of Brexit? It says it's rebranded to focus since Konditor means 'baker' in german. However this was done a year ago in 2018 but I doubt anyone noticed. I just happen to look down at the bag and saw the name was different. The distinctive purple colours of the shops haven't changed nor have the cake displays. 

My Knee



I probably mentioned my aches and pains so I've been given a series of exercise and modern technology is really good because I was also given an app. However it's been difficult to do them everyday, especially the wall slides gluteal bias - yes I copied the title from the screen shot. Maybe I should cut down on the sets.

I can also record my attendance and pain level. I have a follow-up appointment in a few weeks, so I better start doing them regularly. The simplest are the heel raises and knee flexion, though I did get extreme cramp in one session. The wall is tedious and the chair one is just a lose-weight-call-to-action. It's a reminder I need to drop some pounds, actually lots of pounds.

Progress on the Novel

This has been going well, I'm doing a read through and then preparing for the next draft.

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.
