Daily Writing Journal: Shoe Adventure - Buying New shoes from Clarks to replace the Converse.

My day-to-day casual shoes were wearing out. They are pair of green suede converse pair of tennis shoes, I think I got them in the sale.

The soles are worn down, and I keep on meaning to find where I could get a decent pair of shoes. I don't mean going-out shoes - I have lots of those. But just something for daily wear (I'm not this isn't good so at least have a few pairs to alternate). The only really daily pairs are trainers/sneakers/tennis shoes and they tend to be branded. I'm sorry, I'm not going to pay beyonds the odds just because of a brand.

I probably need a good pair of walking shoes but for the interim just something decent. Made more apparent when the security guard at work looked at my feet. Yes, I was shoe-shamed in a way so that did force me into buying something quicker. I wanted to check out other stores.

So shamedfaced, I found my way to Clarks - there is an outlet shop near me. And I discovered a nice pair of knock-about shoes for fairly reasonable price. Probably a bit  more expensive than the Converse but it would do.

These are the pair of shoes, and I hired them on and they fitted. Probably not the best to be worn in cold wet weather that we are experiencing at the moment but they were comfortable.

I can also wear them at work and bring back my flat ballet ones. These give more support. But I'm still going to need to find a pair for walking. It wasn't that much off the original price so there is no need to shout BARGAIN. It was just a few pounds off.

They also sell bags if you fancied it. Clarks is good old quality - a brand you can rely on. On and off, I'd have a few Clark shoes mixed with my other higher-end stuff.

So that was my shoe adventure.

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.
