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!

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

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

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
