Weekly Update: Harvest of Apples and Veg from Big Mama's garden, Challenges getting harder, Jazz in the Square - Fitz’s In Bloom

There isn't much this week because work has been busy and I've also been trying to focus on editing the novel which is finally making some sense.

Harvest of Apples and Veg from Big Mama's garden

Big Momma (aka my mother aka Ma) harvested some apples from her apple tree. She's really into gardening so I'm going to collect some later on. I'll probably have them in a smoothie. 


These are the cucumbers. They won't look like cucumbers in the supermarket because those are graded and sorted for sale. However if you worked on a farm or you garden, you'll know that vegetables comes in all shapes and sizes. However for aesthetic reasons, supermarkets only take certain produce. In fact, there is probably some regulation else where. A long time ago, when the basic and thrift range was trendy, the supermarkets used to sell odd-shaped vegetable and fruit on the cheap. However they don't look aesthetically pleasing and most people thought there was something wrong with it. I used to until I went back packing and worked on a farm for a few weeks. 

I actually graded peaches for TESCO, we had about three grades. What happened to the odd shaped fruit? They were sent to manufacturing plants, or if the farmer only supplied supermarkets unfortunately they'd go to waste. 

52 Week Money Challenge Getting Harder

It's getting harder and I don't know how long I afford to put the full amount in the money jar.  It's unrealistic, I know I've said this before but it really is. If you do want to save money regularly, go and  seek financial advice or look to how you can open up a decent savings account. Note, that is also the fact some of the money in the jar has lost value, due to the downturn of the pound. 
I'm going to keep going and see where I end up. Hopefully not with a jar of IOUs.

Jazz in the Square - Fitz's In Bloom


Fitz’s In Bloom is a pop up bar in the Russell Square, so basically it's a take on Bloomsbury. There was a nice jazz band with a cool double bass.
It was set up in a corner of the square and people could order cocktails, and relax in the nice balmy evening weather.

My African American & Black Love Romance Adventure Nearly Ready After Four Years.

Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to read this. This post is going to be about my upcoming black love and African American contemporary romance release, which I think tentatively will be late this year or early 2024. It will be a six-part serialised novel, and I'll reveal the date nearer the time. It has been five years since my last black love romance novel. I have two novellas published on Amazon, and I'm  pleased to finally say, I'm about to publish again. It's been a long time.  I planned to release this book in February 2019, but after a long writer's block and other things, it had taken me this long to complete it.  If you follow this blog on and off, I've spoken about it a lot over the years. I'm thinking maybe I should relabel those blog posts as a series of how it developed.  The Story Description The names have changed well from Angelica to Pippa but it's fine.  Everyone wants someone special but PIPPA MILLER thinks not her. She

Finally I'm getting close to a release date for my urban Black Love African America Romance now Pippa & Leyton

I'm working on a pre-release campaign and it isn't going how I'd like it. However if you have being reading me on and off, you'll know I've been writing some novels-in-progress for the longest times!  I stopped writing about it because it just got EMBARRASSING especially when I planned to release this book in 2019. Yes, five years ago! But it's nearly there.  Leyton & Pippa The heroine started off being called Angelica but I kept on misspelling it so I changed it to Pippa. If you look under the label Angelica & Leyton a lot will come up.  Anyway I'm exciting to say, I'm getting reading for publication soon.  Its going to be a six-part serialised instalment, and I'll have details nearer the time.  Maybe A Six Months Countdown I'm planning between three to six months, however when the details are clear, I'll write a post. I'm also doing an extended blog posts on another blog but I'll keep it short and simple here. 

On holiday And Vacation in Alcudia,Mallorca

I'm on a holiday break in Mallorca, Spain. So this means a I won't be writing the prompt. On holiday, I normally have a break from  the internet though it's difficult nowadays with free WiFi. The hotel is okay. A four star on the lower end of the scale - this means no kettle and renting the safe.   The higher end have more add ons. The room are tiny but functional and nice however in fairness it is a beach holiday destination so I doubt there is much lounging around. Food is okay. Superb beach. Everyone seems laid back and relaxed.
