Weekly Update: Very quietly week, Temperatures soared high in London, Hollywood shuts down local park for Christmas Movies, Waitrose Pims Display.




It's been one of those hectic but uneventful weeks. First, I've had a string of work deadlines, and the family is still dealing with bereavement. It's also been very hot, I think it's being a record breaking 38C or 100F in London. At one point, trains were cancelled - the wrong kind of steel on the tracks. On a more serious note, there was fear the steel in the railway tracks could expand, and that could be dangerous especially at the high speeds. Quite a few people worked from home.

Local Park Gets Shut Down in the Heat  for a Christmas Movie


It was a bit odd to see the local park shut down and covered in fake snow since the temperature was about 26C. You can see the fake snow littered underneath the big tree, and a production people prepping the scene for filming. We tend to have a lot of movie sets around, especially with the posher timeless looking buildings. Summer is also a good time because of the available natural light.




Waitrose Pims Display

It was time for free taster of Pims at my local Waitrose. Yes, I like supermarkets and frequently visits most of them, especially the big ones. Apart for the big Waitrose on Finchley Road. I prefer other branches. Though the Finchley Branch is nice, I just find it chaotic. I also like Sainsbury, Tescos on the odd occasion, Morrsion's. I also like Aldis, and at times Co-Op. Maybe I'll do a blog post on supermarkets.

It's quite interesting because different supermarket branches sell different things to cater to the local populations. And different locations have different peak times. I find them fascinating.

Writing Progress

It's going well. I'm working on the first 10k words now.  

Have a good week and stay hydrated!

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
