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 that is critical in asking for a raise - you have a boss who thinks you are worth it, supports you and if needs be fight your corner. It makes all the difference. So I'm earning national average within my sector for my job. It would be nice to earn my home city average with is a few coins more but I'm happy and grateful for with what was achieved.

I've closed down my reality show blog, it wasn't time for it to come to an end since I no longer regularly watch those shows. I have another blog called Apples and Peanuts, A Book club of One where I review books I read. I read a lot, like to talk about books so it made sense it was something I could blog about.

I'm thinking of blogging more frequently, and not sure. It not really to do with being busy, it's  more about what do I blog about? I like food - yes why I'm fat, but I rarely cooking  nowadays. I guess I can blog about what's happening in my life but some things I think it's too boring or private - protecting the guilty and shameless. I'm also writing but that tends to bore others who don't write.

I have a few things simmering on the back burner which I'll probably chat about soon. Like how I got my 17% pay-raise, the actions the led there, other changes that are happening.

I guess I'll aim to blog at least one a fortnight like every two weeks.

Till then take care.

Big Love

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.
