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.

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.
