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 assistants left a sour taste in my mouth. But who cares? After all iPhones are practically licenses to print money, what does one lost sale mean?

So I've lost all my apps but I'm happy learning the Android way. So that was 2017 for me.

These are four of my 2018 goals

  1. Lose 10kg about 20lbs because I want to wear all my old clothes. I've got some really nice clothes and I can't afford to by that quality at the weight I am in now - a whole wardrobe of office clothes that would come in useful in my new role.
  2. Take packed lunch in for the next six months. This is pretty hard because I have a little more disposable cash so I spend.
  3. Publish my novel and at least a short story in a pay market.
  4. Get out of being a social recluse and workaholic and socialise more. This is even more so because I tend to write after work. Also all my friends are living different lives, or moved away or lost touch. Now to be honest, I ain't talking internet social media social life. That I have. In fact plenty of, but I just feel I need to expand beyond the realms of work and social media.
  5. Do a blog post at least once a fortnight.
How am I tracking all this?

Well I just found out about the bullet journal which I'm trying out for six months. I'm so excited about it, and I even showed a close relation. and there are a few on youtube.

So far so good.

Other news

I've closed down my other word press blog because I wasn't updating it as much. It was suppose to be for writing and book reviews but I've decided to stick with this.

Expectations for this blog

Nah. I'll try and do a post a week. I can track that down. Yay.

So lets roll into 2018.

Best wishes

Anna (aka B) Day xx

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

Lost Four Pounds! Attended Pilates! Watched Patricia Bright

On Friday my boss got bored of me talking about my eating plan and how I only used my gym for the spa facilities, so let's just say I forced to put my money where my mouth was and ended up booking five exercise sessions. Yes, hard to believe I've been with my gym for over a year and have NEVER ATTENDED A GYM CLASS. Mainly, because I like the spa and thing food reduction is the way to lose weight also just thinking of exercise exhausts me. I needed to book them via the website but having never done it, my password failed so I rang, in front of my boss, the gym to book it. Proof. They are mainly low impact classes so nothing too strenuous or so I thought. Come Saturday, I'm down the gym for my pilates class with all these fit, slim and trendy people. It's a 9AM class so basically like a work day for me. I thought pilates was gentle. Not. I say this having done it for about three years in a dance school - yeah I was once about twenty pounds or ten kilos lighter - and the
