Mo Money Challenge - Week 23 of 52 Week money Challenge, Big Momma's suggestions, still short of change, and miscounting cash.



No change, though I managed to get hold of two twenty pounds notes, it would have been less if someone had been serving customers behind the till of Itsu - an Far Asian inspired food joint that sells mostly Japanese-ish food for the western appetite. I say Japanese-ish because it's not really Japanese food, just inspired and concoctions.

Anyway I come home sick from work, and decided I needed a nice big pot of steaming ramen but there was no one at the counter, so feeling ill and irritable, I came straight home, therefore not breaking into the two ten pounds note above.

I had no change so another IOU, but for the wrong amount, I guess I lost a pound to the money pot.



Oh, apologies the picture is up side down but money is money, you can still the money pot and notes. I have a family house guest - Big Momma, who seems to have an interest in this money pot and savings business.

So this recently she asked me when I was going to pay up the IOU for last week which was twenty-two pound sterlings. I told her I didn't know. The acknowledgement of debt is there but I don't know, it's not as if the money pot is going to send red letters or bailiffs to my home. Then Big Momma started to give some advice but I stopped her by asking would she pay up for the IOU. She paused in her tracks and basically said no. That was the end of conversation. However she did make her point clear that IOUs where not good practice, I guess the same applies for getting random money challenges off the internet.



After a rest in conversation, Big Momma wanted to know how much was in the money pot. 'How much have you saved?' she asked. 'It must be a lot.' This is what happens when family follow your blog. So reluctantly, I counted out the notes - just the notes not coins - and it came up to about one hundred and seventy five pounds in notes. 'That's not much,' said Big Momma looking vaguely disappointed and I just shrugged. End of conversation. Big Momma is holidaying/vacationing until the end of the of week.

It sounds about right, since I missed the first six weeks and started in week seven, so it will be about twenty-one pounds down. Maybe I should do a tally but it's too much effort, it's bad enough putting money in the pot, now I have to keep a record? Nah...I know this week it will be technically one pound over in IOU.

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
