This week I have had to work in Manly for a few days. Although I wasn't looking forward to the long trip from my apartment, I have to say I have thoroughly enjoyed the trip each day.
Firstly, on the bus I actually get to just sit for thirty minutes, which trust me, doesn't happen very often. Then I enjoy a fifteen minute ferry ride across the harbour. Sydney really does have a stunning harbour. The first day I saw 4 dolphins and today a stunning sunset. Look out tomorrow!
On the bus trip I have been reading my new book, The Creative Entrepreneur, which is a guide to creating a visual diary to help you create a business plan. Now that I have actually read some of the book I can say that I am quite excited about getting started. To get me warmed up I bought some acrylic paints from a nice man in Manly today. I was on the look out for the perfect visual diary book but I just didn't find THE ONE. She and I will know each other when we meet.
I must say I am surprised how nice the people are in Manly and I am surprised that that surprises me as it never used to, which means I used to talk to more nice people.
Something else that has made me smile this week is the Frankie Magazine. I don't buy a large number of mags as most just don't inspire me, but FRANKIE, oooooooooo she is my new love! Where has she been all my life? Something about the styling, photography and the whole presentation reminds me of my childhood in some way. I even set a reminder in my phone for the next issue date!
Today on the Frankie blog I found some wallpaper downloads. There are a few very cool ones there, so pop over to the site and download your own pet Blythe doll to stare at you all day, make you smile and remind you that it's just a job not your life.
