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.

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
