Mo Money 52 week money challenge: Breaking the rules again, and taking CHANGE in week 18...£18 in the pot..sort of. What to spend on!!

52 week money challenge

I'm being more efficient with the whole picture thing. I'm trying out a collage app on my phone since really it's kinda of boring just going through the whole process with a stack of same old boring pictures.

Anyway the drama is another twenty quid (pounds sterling note) in the pot which meant I needed two quid (pound sterling) change.

The picture should support that process. The first on the upper left hand side is my twenty, then twenty and the money pot err... a bit of a mistake in ordering so the lower left hand side has the change and my twenty pounds then I put the twenty pounds in the pot. Confused? Confusing? Probably, you can see I had this bright idea on the spot. Next time I'll plan the pictures better.

 What to spend on!!

I'm thinking of getting a new tumble dryer. The old broke so I'm more or less going down the laundrette/ laundromat (US), and drying my clothes there. it's not that expensive, but it would be nice to have one. Who knows  if I continue I might be about to get a posh one...That is only if I continue because I'm starting to feel the pinch and also the annoyance of not having the right change. Plan? Yeah, but I don't have the time.

I could also maybe get a subscription for photoshop as I do my own book covers...or blow the lot (if I finish on my DREAM BAG a Smythson handbag - I've been eyeing them up for about seven years...

So let's look at my choices if I finish

  • A high-end tumble dryer
  • Subscription to Adobe and Vellum publishing - maybe a bit of editorial costs
  • A Smythson's handbag 
  • Savings for a rainy day....
Sounds good but we'll see.

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
