Anna On Lockdown - Trying to Keep Calm and Carry On #1: General things

Hello everyone,

I hope you and yours are all safe and well.

There is so much going on that I try to switch off because it's what's everyone is covering and let's face it I'm scared and so is the world including leaders. There are people out there doing amazing work - the key healthcare workers (including caregivers in home and on hte field), the postal service, the local utility service - refuse collection, gas, water etc. Then the brave supermarket workers and delivery workers, the law enforcement and everyone else.

So what have I been doing on Lock Down?

Baking, lots of baking


I tired to make some biscuits, and they didn't quite meet the mark but they hit the spot. I love biscuits but I used less ingredients than I should. A lot less sugar and butter. I used more flour but in hindsight that is now a scarce commodity.  But this was before everyone started baking.

Staying in touch with Family and Loved ones.



I ring Sis and my mother twice a day. Mostly in the morning and then in the evening. I hope you are keeping in touch with loved one.  I also email and text friends.


Take care everyone and keep safe.

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
