Christmas Lunch is agreed, all on board. Goal setting and Time management working well.

Lots happened at work today. Sat in on presentation meetings with Head Honcho which again was a master class in my profession. I'm learning to learning. Normally sometimes as a pro one can get defensive about certain things and comes over slightly agitated so having working for two high cablibre pros is worth more than their weight in gold to me. One learns not only technical skills but also communication skills. I've also taken to reading the industry trade rag. Yeah, I know, taking career seriously.
Venue rang back and confirmed we can order either from the al carte menu or christmas menu. What is now in disccusion is the discretionary service charge. Anyway I'm just going to pay the deposit and see what comes up. It's a nice venue, we are getting an airy dining room - away from the crowds - overlooking the beautiful garden. And it seems everyone is happy with it. Well mostly.
Fabulously Glamorous gave me a mediation piece which is very truth. I've pondered on it, as it's to do with goal setting. Yeah, as you can see that is been my on-going theme for the last few weeks. Well it mentioned about focusing and celebrating what one can achieve. Keeping goals realistic (I don't think I do that at times, I overwhelm myself with lots and lots of things). Also a quote from a Margaret Sangster - you can google her if you want. I'm just paraphasing. It goes along the lines we worry about things left undone, not the things we have done.
Anyway I'm still learning to keep my goals realistic which at times can be disappointing. I'm a dreamer at heart. But realism gives my achievements more movement. And it's harder. Especially when dealing with the unknown with the element of risk. Proping up oneself with goals though no time to do them, is kind of comforting.
Got results about on the course I'm rushing to complete. I have two assignments, and then it's done. Believe it or not, it's a grammar course, but really for editing and rewriting my novel. That is not on my current to do list.
Momma AG rang to say about a christmas party this weekend, so might have to get a new dress. Don't ask me about the starving diet. It lasted all of five minutes. I might consider going to Weight watcher in the New Year. Maybe pencil in my gym. Not sure. I have all the weight watchers stuff, even the calculator since I joined a few years ago. Need to think about it. Ponder. Maybe I do too much pondering. Hence my actions plans.
Is there any point dieting during the party season?

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

HAPPY NEW YEAR - LET THE GOALS ROLL

Hello all. Happy New Year! So last year was awesome for me because I managed to achieve one goal. The biggest goal which was to get a new job. And that came with financial reward as well. Yay! It was hard, challenging, horrible. I hate change but I had to get out of the rut I was in. Dudes, I was desperate to move. So I dug deep, did my interview practice, attended a number of interviews and hit one. Yay. Now longer gaming. I didn't need the escapism with my new positive work environment. I also abandoned the iPhone family and went Android. To cut a long story short, I got bought an iPhone 8 but it was faulty - however Apple weren't transparent about their return policy - ALWAYS ASK ABOUT RETURN POLICY. Nor did they believe the phone was faulty. It was. Anyway I was so disgusted the arrogance of the 'apple people', I decided instead of getting a replacement to spend my money elsewhere. I'm still part of the Apple family. But the Apple Store sales assist

Up Date on Happenings: Newly Single & 17% pay raise.

Hey Everyone, So update since my last entry. Well I had a brief fling with Mr Sexy Guy and decided he wasn't the one for me. He was cool but I learned the difference between lust, chemistry and personality. It just didn't tango for me. I'm still grossly overweight, well, fat. I don't think there is anything wrong with being called fat. I am fat. I need to lose weight but that means getting organised and stop eating delicious food. Then again my knees are hurting me and joints feel the ache. I also haven't been to the gym in three months despite paying for it. But when I do, I normally go for the sauna, hot tub and   steam room session. I've thought of cancelling the exorbitant membership but in the climate apart from bills it's the one thing that is just for me...that when I use it. Work is fine, managed to get a 17% pay raise. A big thanks to my boss who also pushed for it. It's good to work for people who support you in that matter. I think tha
