Weekly Round Up - nothing out of the ordinary, finished Manga book, Pub Lunch, reading Mastery by Robert.

Nothing interesting this week as work has been very busy and by the time I get back all I want to do is have dinner, unwind and then go to bed.

Travel is back to normal


I'm back on my normal bus route, so it's cheaper now and less eventful. I just posted Liverpool street as an image.

Mastery by Robert Green

This is another book,I picked up from Director Boss while he was sorting out his cupboard, and I borrowed it. So I'm going to work my way through it, to be honest I'm unconvinced. It gives the same old self-help power rhotic but hey, who am I to turn down an offer to be a MASTER? Apparently it gives all the secrets away and helps in the pursuit of mastery. That is a tall order for any book to offer. However since I'm not buying it and can borrow it for free, I'll read it. It only costs my time. However note I do have a health amount of scepticism reading these types of books. 

However what really irritates me about these books is that everyone has a purpose. Yeah, and if you don't have that purpose you are failing in life. I was brought up believing that, and read too many books sprouting the same old stuff. 

I guess what is your purpose in life, is as good as asking what is the meaning of life. What is the purpose of a fly? A rabbit? A chicken in a farm? Are the purpose of all creatures other than man to serve man? There is an innately Christian or perhaps biblical thought about it. Folks spend their lives seeking purpose rather than satisfaction. So we are all born for a purpose is interesting. Whose purpose is that? Our parents, family, community? Is it a divine purpose? The mind boggles but yeah. 

What of those who think their purpose is the help others find purpose for that is probably more lucrative  in the long run. Perhaps purpose is better called ambition and aspirations...Anyway when I start reading the book, I'll let you know. I'm thinking of doing blog posts on it.

Finished the Manga drawing book



I completed the goal but so as not to clutter this post, I've outlined the steps in my other goal post, if you are interested in my next drawing goal or steps, I've done another post.

Pub Lunch



Went out to lunch with Big Momma. I normally have ham and eggs and this pub does a nice ham and eggs  with chips and tomato chutney. Okay, I admit the eggs were a bit overdone this time but it tasted okay. - I'm not sure if it's gammon but it isn't as salty as other meals I have. The chips are delicious. They seem to have redecorated it.


Once in a while, I got out for a pub meal with Big Momma. Normally on a Sunday so I can have a roast with all the trimming. So roast beef/lamb/chicken with vegetables, roast potatoes and a Yorkshire pudding. However some of the pubs around me are gourmet (gastro-pubs) or offer an alternative like Thai food.That's Big Momma in at the table while I order. Typical pub, you order at the bar.



When I was a kid, my childhood home street had about eight pubs, now only two of them survive, others have be knocked down and turned into luxury flats. Yes, such is regeneration in London Town. I guess also customer habits have changed - people are more into coffee shops, going online etc.

Road Works Everywhere...



What is it with London Town and the end of the fiscal year? It always seems they want to finish up the year-end budget so there are plenty of road works around this time. Don't get me started.

Finally

As I said things are fairly boring as I'm working hard and tired when I get back so not up to much.

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

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

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
