My London Hood: The British Library



I know it's not on my list but its still in London. From the top left handsome, the first picture is right hand side of the entrance which is further along. The second picture is the entrance's iron case gates, the next is the back view of the library.



This next series was inside the courtyard. Starting from the upper lefthandside and moving clockwise, that is an iron statue of something or the other - not sure what. Next is the main entrance, I didn't go in because bags aren't allowed. I know for the reading rooms you can only carry clear plastic bags that are provided - I'm not sure if this is still the case.

The next is the courtyard and there are lots of spaces to sit down. After that is another statue of a famous person. Not sure who.

They have lots of exhibitions and events. They also need to be sent a copy of each book so they can archive a copy, or something. It's called a legal deposit which I need to find out more about so I add my pile of work too. I'm going to ask for more details since I self- published with Amazon incase that is different or treated differently. There is probably a cost to it as well.

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.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! HAPPY 2022! My year of decluttering my creativity!

Happy New Year, Everyone! This was a quiet one, after watching two films last night I called it a night and woke up in the New Year. What films you ask? Guess Who with Bernie Mac, Ashton Kutcher and a lot of cringe worthy jokes. Then I watched Aloha with Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, this was bit better. It had strong moments but I could see why they said it didn't really have any direction. Was it a romance? Was it a military story? It was hard to say what the movie was...a lesson in premise and precision but it gave a nice fluffy feeling and I must say Emma Stone did a brilliant job and so did John Krasinski - he acted with heart.  However it's a nice film and I learn a lot from it, but I think it would have missed the market because there were too many theme or subplots or whatever. Overall a brilliant cast, great acting but the story struggled with doing too much.  Decluttering My Creativity  This year, I'm focusing on decluttering my creativity in the sense of completing
