Daily Writing Journal: My London Hood - Sunset at Hyde Park, then to Green Park - Fortnum & Mason's Window Display #FortnumsXHeinz

Hyde Park at Sundown/sunset
London Hyde Park at Sundown/sunset
I took this picture in Hyde Park, a few days ago.  I had a meeting in South Kensington, rather posh area of town. After the meeting, I was walking down to Hyde Park Corner - I love London open spaces and parks so whenever I have access to one, I'd rather walk than talk transport.

It was such a lovely vibrant evening that I decided to walk down Green Park and catch my train from Piccadilly Cirrus rather than Hyde Park Corner - this is our Underground transport system - a bit like a metro or transit system.

I passed a famous shop called Fortnum and Mason and it's window display it was advertising Heinz's baked beans and the Heinz's 150 year old Anniversary. There is even a hashtag #FortnumsXHeinz.  I didn't go in because it was rush hour and all I wanted to do was go home.

Apparently Fortnum and Mason was the first place that sold the brand back in the day. This was before common folks could afford to eat baked beans. I'm not a big Heinz baked beans fan, it's rather too savoury for me and I have sweet tooth. I much prefer Sainsbury's baked beans. This isn't to do with cost or anything it's just I prefer the taste and consistency but I know ride or die Heinz baked beans fans. A former colleague was one. It's a bit like people with their tea or coffee - I'm not brand loyal with that either.


 Quite interesting to know common place foods like chocolate, tea, coffee, baked beans were only for the super-rich when they first came out.

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

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

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
