Weekly Round Up: Discovered a rarely used Liz Claiborne handbag in closet, Cyprus Night in London, A walk on the Southbank.

General Walking

This week I decided to do a little more walking to count as exercise, I'm not currently using the gym despite my membership. I'm just tired when I get home, and in a rush to work in the morning. Plus I do writerly things, so that is also a time-suck.

Anyway with such a sedentary lifestyle, I've had to increase somehow. If you remember, I even got myself a pair of walking shoes so no excuses. And there hasn't been - I've been walking a lot more on my route to walk. The walking shoes have been excellent - worth the money. Merrells.

Before that it was I would wake up, walk about five minutes to my transport link, get dropped literally in front of my office block, sit at my desk for eight hours plus. Go back to transport link, get dropped five minutes from home. At home, I'd be too tired or either I'd work on my novel. So very little. Now I'm walking for at least thirty minutes a day, and up to the hour and an half on clear days. 

Cyprus Night at the Brunswick Shopping Centre

Big Momma and I attended a lavish public event to pay tribute Christos' Chris' Lazari. He died tragically a few years. He was a generous and distinguished member of the community, so his tribute and to honour his memory was a public event with entertainment, good live music, free food and drink.

I forgot my phone at home, yes, this does happen from time to time, so I couldn't take pictures.

It was said, he loved a good dance so what better to celebrate him than a great party! He was also a generous man, so in that same tradition this party was for EVERYONE!  It was awesome and we had a great time. Thousands of people came, I kid you not. Great food, too! He was a billionaire who shared his wealth. So we ate, drank and were merry!

Found a small Liz Claiborne handbag in my closet

Not newish per se, it was just one of smaller handbags I've probably only used about four times since I got it. It's a Liz Claiborne and I got a few years from either New York or Miami - not sure which.  New York was good for shopping but Miami was fantastic! Anyway I'm still slacking on getting my regular handbag fixed so I needed an alternative.

I've probably never really used it because it's such a small bag (it looks so much bigger in the picture) however it's forced me to cut down all the stuff I normally carry in my handbag. So now I just have my purse, and work ID, then again I carry supplement bag with my books.

I also need to take care of this one a bit more since it probably won't be as durable as ones that need repairing. Maybe, I'll just get a new one...who knows.

Walking  towards Westminster Bridge on the Southbank.

I haven't been down this end for years, however it was such a lovely afternoon on Friday, that I decided to take a walk. In the picture is the London Eye, the undercroft which is an area under the Southbank centre that was highjacked  by skaters about twenty or more years ago, and is now a stake park - yeah moving on, then a street/bridge lamp, the old County Hall and the newish Jubilee Gardens, most of these developments have happened in the last ten years.

  It's changed so much and was basically a tourist mecca. I got to the old County Hall and that basically housed a few tourist attractions including Shrek! Oh dear. Anyway, I'm saving the rest of the pictures for the London Hood feature.

Bicycle Hire in London - pushbike goes crazy.

It's crazy, we even have uber bikes. These bikes are just hired with an app or something, apart from the Santander (Boris) Bikes which have docking stations. That is one on top right hand side, as you can see it's docked. The rest are left anywhere and probably tracked with GPS. I think they are operated via apps. They tend to be the choice transport for the local street pharmacist. It is what is it.

Editing is going well!

I'm pleased with my progress and it's going well. I'm not meeting the provisional deadline set which is at the end of this month, but I'm generally pleased.

So that's being generally my week, so have a good one, everyone!

Anna Aden!

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

Finally I'm getting close to a release date for my urban Black Love African America Romance now Pippa & Leyton

I'm working on a pre-release campaign and it isn't going how I'd like it. However if you have being reading me on and off, you'll know I've been writing some novels-in-progress for the longest times!  I stopped writing about it because it just got EMBARRASSING especially when I planned to release this book in 2019. Yes, five years ago! But it's nearly there.  Leyton & Pippa The heroine started off being called Angelica but I kept on misspelling it so I changed it to Pippa. If you look under the label Angelica & Leyton a lot will come up.  Anyway I'm exciting to say, I'm getting reading for publication soon.  Its going to be a six-part serialised instalment, and I'll have details nearer the time.  Maybe A Six Months Countdown I'm planning between three to six months, however when the details are clear, I'll write a post. I'm also doing an extended blog posts on another blog but I'll keep it short and simple here. 

On holiday And Vacation in Alcudia,Mallorca

I'm on a holiday break in Mallorca, Spain. So this means a I won't be writing the prompt. On holiday, I normally have a break from  the internet though it's difficult nowadays with free WiFi. The hotel is okay. A four star on the lower end of the scale - this means no kettle and renting the safe.   The higher end have more add ons. The room are tiny but functional and nice however in fairness it is a beach holiday destination so I doubt there is much lounging around. Food is okay. Superb beach. Everyone seems laid back and relaxed.
