Fridays Mo 52 week Money Challenge - Week 19....Took midweek change from the money pot.

I used a different collage app which reduced the quality of the pictures so I can't increase this size as I normally do. Anyway, it's week 19 of the year and of the challenge.  As normal, I decided it was easier to take change from the money pot rather than give the correct change. You know that's how many vending machines make more money by demanding 'correct change' so if you put in more you never get any change. Have you being cheated that way? I have.

So starting from the lower left picture and working upwards and clockwise or to the right. I have a twenty quid note. The next picture is the twenty quid note with the money pot. I opened the money pot took my change of one quid out. The following picture is me plonking the twenty quid into the post. After that is closing the pot with my one quid change outside the box.

I had to change some notes, so I took from change from the money pot. Yes, breaking the rules again, but you know what? It was bound to happen. Had to break a twenty to give someone a tenner (ten pound note).

I wish I could say how interesting and inspiring this challenge is but it's not. It's a down right pain and irritating. It's always on my mind how I'm going to meet next week, be it time wise to take pictures or where I'm going to get the cash from. Its sucks. Why am I doing it? It's a challenge and I want to see how far I can get.

I'm thinking of moving this to my weekly round up. Maybe even my movie/film night since that is falling behind due to work. However this week I didn't get DVD movies, anyway I reported them to the place but they may come tomorrow. There is normally a backlog with the post/mail after a bank holiday.

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.

My London Hood - The Tate Modern

Modern Gallery make you think of the world as it is today. I just wandered around the exhibitions in the Tate modern and  seemed focused on oppression of humanity - focusing on the poverty, wars, sexuality, violence, conflict, the underdog and gritty. This was a picture that captured my imagination because it looked so modern. This is a painting by German artist Christian Schad  called Agosta, the Pigeon-Chested Man, and Rasha, the Black Dove 1929 is a large portrait-orientated oil painting of two funfair performers.  So in typically America-speak when I saw my people, I had to stop and take a picture, therefore homegirl, Rasha, the black dove is headlining my blog. In those days, I guess the only work she could get was as side-freak show but she is very beautiful, modernly so. It also made me think of what happened to all the black people or people of colour during Nazi Germ

Review of January 2018 - lost weight, socialised with others, completed my beta-read, doing my courses.

Hello everyone, Just checking in about my goals and life in general. It's all good. What went well. I took in packed lunches for at least four days a week. This was just hummus, sprouts, grated carrot sandwich. So very vegan.  I also cooked dinner a few times a night rather than eating junk food or takeaway. So a lot healthier. I finally have a social life of sorts. In my last job - it was work, home and see family on weekends. I was so drained and tired so this new job has made such a difference, that I can go out and meet people.  So I go out with some drinking mates once a week. It's a nice evening out of the house and away from social media or the internet. It's mostly small talk but its nice. I'm doing my photoshop course. That is coming along nicely, that picture is from one of my practice sessions. I'm doing a couple of writing courses which are intense. What hasn't gone well. I need to focus on having more routines, and breaking tasks
