Show me your desk: casio job, drawing project, mr sheet and a whole of junk on my desk.

I'm in the midst of tidying up so the desk is a more cluttered compared to normal. Starting on the lower left hand side and working clockwise, is my calculator. It's a casio job and solar powered. This has seen me through a flurry of professional exams.

Next to that is How To Draw Anything by Mark Liney. This is my next drawing project. I am to draw all the 260 drawings in it. I've already done about 48 or so, and I'm looking to complete it sometime this year. It's part of my goal planning practice.

After that is my dairy - I had to get one for work as it's a pretty meeting-rich environment. No, electronic calendars don't quite do the job.  Under that is a copy of the latest UK Cosmopolitan magazine. It's been reduced to a pound but the paper quality is also poorer, not the nice glossy paper. I guess it feels more like the stuff used in American magazines. Under that is a notebook. Next to pile is a bottle of castor oil for my hair.

Something that hasn't moved is the index cards of my story, I shall be using them this week.  I have a canister of Mr Sheen surface spray for cleaning. Then my desk lamp and speakers. One of the volume tabs have broken off. It's supposed to be a pig.

The pile of black books are freebies from Kaplan Connects. I did my final paper with Kaplan and they decided to launch a network with a series of lectures,  but I don't think much happened with it so it no longer exists. It reminds me to think of CPD (Continuing Professional Development) so I don't get behind. I probably need to set aside time, but they are super expensive. A long time ago these events were free, now it's either expensive and ONLINE, so you don't even get a free lunch. Don't get me started on professional bodies.

Finally is the red notebook where I just write stuff. It's a semi-journal, semi-rant, semi-story idea book.

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.
