Weekly Update: Very quietly week, Temperatures soared high in London, Hollywood shuts down local park for Christmas Movies, Waitrose Pims Display.




It's been one of those hectic but uneventful weeks. First, I've had a string of work deadlines, and the family is still dealing with bereavement. It's also been very hot, I think it's being a record breaking 38C or 100F in London. At one point, trains were cancelled - the wrong kind of steel on the tracks. On a more serious note, there was fear the steel in the railway tracks could expand, and that could be dangerous especially at the high speeds. Quite a few people worked from home.

Local Park Gets Shut Down in the Heat  for a Christmas Movie


It was a bit odd to see the local park shut down and covered in fake snow since the temperature was about 26C. You can see the fake snow littered underneath the big tree, and a production people prepping the scene for filming. We tend to have a lot of movie sets around, especially with the posher timeless looking buildings. Summer is also a good time because of the available natural light.




Waitrose Pims Display

It was time for free taster of Pims at my local Waitrose. Yes, I like supermarkets and frequently visits most of them, especially the big ones. Apart for the big Waitrose on Finchley Road. I prefer other branches. Though the Finchley Branch is nice, I just find it chaotic. I also like Sainsbury, Tescos on the odd occasion, Morrsion's. I also like Aldis, and at times Co-Op. Maybe I'll do a blog post on supermarkets.

It's quite interesting because different supermarket branches sell different things to cater to the local populations. And different locations have different peak times. I find them fascinating.

Writing Progress

It's going well. I'm working on the first 10k words now.  

Have a good week and stay hydrated!

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
