Show me your desk - notes, pelargonium peltatum (ivy geraniums) and other stuff.



Okay I'm starting from the lower left handside in a clockwise direction. So that's my note pad with  notes for a difficult scene in the book.  I wrote the scene but I'm not happy with it. I guess first drafts are rarely any good, but they never come out the way I think them in my head. Away on top of the pad are my spare glasses - yes, I do wear specs for computer work.

On the upper right hand side are three pots of pelargonium peltatum  (I typed this straight from the label) that Sis brought me as a gift. I just found out they are also called ivy geraniums. They are just there for the time being. The pots are one a bunch of papers and a book....yes. After that a broken index card holder which contains my pack of index cards for my story, yeah, I have touched them for weeks now, a cat from a greeting card, and my NetGallery freebie.

Same old stuff as in the bottle of castor oil, a packet of tissues, and my desk lamp.. Moving downwards is my pencil case sitting on top of a daily calendar which I still haven't carried to my office. Finally is my glasses' case and two notebooks.

Finally my MacBook - the screws are coming loose so I need to find my way to the Apple shop so they can tighten the loose ones and replace the missing ones. Personally, I think it it should be done for free, and this reflects shoddy workmanship. I never had this problem with two PC laptops. I'm not impressed.   Don't believe all the Apple hype. Actually I got an iPhone 8 and it was faulty, yet I had so much problems in the Apple shop.  At times, the assistants can be so self righteous about their products rather than just admitting fault. Don't me started about some oversized reddy faced manager at Covent Garden and some idiot at the Regent Street branches.

Bad experiences with both Apple stores that turned me off, so in the end I just opted for a One Plus 5 phone. That has its own drama too but that is a story for another day.

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
