Weekly Round up: Food market at Southbank Waterloo, Performance in the Festival Hall, other things.




Nothing happened this week, it was rather quiet. Perhaps, I should keep a journal or something. Anyway on Friday I went to the Southbank Street Food market, Street Food is such a big concept in London nowadays but it typically just burgers, chips, wraps, curry and some Pad Thai. No real variation, and it tends to be overpriced. But at least most take card payments now. 

I didn't buy anything because I had a big lunch at another street market near my workplace. So I walked past, to my destination. Lately I've taken to writing at Festival Hall but over the past week, I found just sitting in the Foyer of the Queen Elizabeth Hall was nicer. It's a bit darker in there, not as much natural light as the Royal Festival Hall but there is enough for me to write. 

Anyway on Friday there was a performance by a young artist. I didn't catch his name, but he was good. 

Blog activities review

I'm cutting down on my blog posts, I'll continue the 52 week challenge and my desk, but I'm not doing the films anymore unless they are part of this weekly catch up. Also I'm doing the writing stuff monthly now. It's just I have about 156 blog posts this year which I think is a bit too much,  so I think a review is due.

Maybe I'll make My London Hood fortnightly. I have the picture in my phone but it's just writing it up. Or maybe monthly. I'll think about it.

Other stuff

That's pretty much being the highlight of my week, part from catching up with Sis and going shopping with Big Momma. Oh and did I say I was counting calories. I managed to lose about 2kg or 4 pounds doing that. I think it's also the fact I walking more. 

I need some summer clothes, maybe a new pair of jeans and light tops. Oh, and I visited the physiotherapist/physical therapist (US), something about my knees. It's been painful and I reckon the weight does it no favours - it is what it is. So  I've been given some exercise to do, which I need to start since I'm seeing them again in a months time. 

I also need to book a break off. Normally I go to Spain in the summer but due to changing jobs that hasn't happened. 

That's it from me.

Have a great week

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.
