Daily Writing Journal: My London Hood - St Pancras & St Pancras International Station


Today is a rather grey and overcast day in London  - normal weather - but to honour this promise rather than using old pictures - not looking at anyone in Instagram I actually left my place early and decided on St Pancras Station, now called St Pancras International Station.  This where the Eurostar trains start, before it was at Waterloo but moved over here a few years ago.


It's a beautiful gothic building and if you want to find out more information I've put some links below. This houses a hotel called the renaissance  and as well as some super expensive penthouses.


Spot the fancy cars...


 I took a few pictures around, didn't go inside - it just feels like an airport lounge with lots of restaurants and food shops. I normally use it go to Brighton or Gatwick Airport.


This is the new entrance.

This is the Youtube Store, the opposite side had Google. I'll do that another day when I'm in the area. 


This is from other side - where a famous wizard takes the train to school...Kings Cross anyone? There is a lot going on in the Kings Cross area - it's like a new city in some ways. So surreal...Being there a few times but let's see how this goes.  Afterwards, I went shopping.

I'm no longer going to be numbering my posts since I'm doing a schedule and I have doubled counted on some days. It may also start getting ridiculous. This posts will also be later in the day as I actually have to leave home.

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
