Soan Papdi sweetened my day.

The bus stop was fairly busy this morning. Dipped a bit into Michael Charon's Telegraph Avenue. I like the sounds of the story but his heavy descriptions are putting me off. At times, he even goes 'harlequin romance' and uses the word 'pivot' just so he can be specific. The only people I know who use that word in fiction are American romance writers.

Anyway I'm not feeling the book because I like a little more action in my books and not layered with description - no matter how clever or original it is. Yawn. Boring. However I'll keep on trying.

Got to work to find out I missed some kind of drama. Great. Had lunch, not so great. Didn't have pudding either. Bought a book from the charity bin - not that interesting but was only 50p.


Ate some bengoli sweets called Soan Papdi. Very nice. Flaky and yum.  After a long day at work, went to the gym. Crowded and full of super-fit people. I'm still on my obesity drive, and glad to announce this is the start of the second week of gymming. I'm doing like 15-20 minutes on the treadmill depending the music. Lasted twenty minutes, quick stretches as the floor was full, then adieu to the gym.

Tried to get the bus, when stupid bus driver drove past. Not impressed. Visited a mate to say hello. Paid my gas bill and that's about it.

Yeah, that's me.

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.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! HAPPY 2022! My year of decluttering my creativity!

Happy New Year, Everyone! This was a quiet one, after watching two films last night I called it a night and woke up in the New Year. What films you ask? Guess Who with Bernie Mac, Ashton Kutcher and a lot of cringe worthy jokes. Then I watched Aloha with Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, this was bit better. It had strong moments but I could see why they said it didn't really have any direction. Was it a romance? Was it a military story? It was hard to say what the movie was...a lesson in premise and precision but it gave a nice fluffy feeling and I must say Emma Stone did a brilliant job and so did John Krasinski - he acted with heart.  However it's a nice film and I learn a lot from it, but I think it would have missed the market because there were too many theme or subplots or whatever. Overall a brilliant cast, great acting but the story struggled with doing too much.  Decluttering My Creativity  This year, I'm focusing on decluttering my creativity in the sense of completing
