Big Windows

From our bright little office perched up on the sandstone ridge we can look down at the bustle of the circular quay ferry terminal or up to the glassy towers of the CBD, up at the shiny black windows out of which one of our clients may well be peering right back at us.
What YOU can see, is just how lovely this Sydney autumn has been so far...
Lucky city!

Tap Tap Tap

Cumberland St
My fabulous new career is set in the area of the oldest British settlement in Australia- The Rocks.
Once ejected from the train in a surge of CBD commuters, I take my walk over cobblestoned paths past old pubs, dormant archaeological digs and the occasional dazed tourist to our bright new office at the base of the southern pilon of the Harbour Bridge.
On my way, I give a little wave to Princess Mary's empty hotel room at the Shangri-La and a nod to the towering landmark bridge. I revel in my imagined sense of belonging to the club of sophisticated corporate city types. My leather shoes tap tap tap along the ground and I swing my smart back brolly.

Here Goes...

Old Franky

What a naughty girl! It's been a little over a month since Franky took the hot seat and prattled on about her daily jollies. What happened?

JOB! -Got one.
Spent the last month trawling job ads, tweaking resume and cover letters, sitting politely in front of recruitment consultants and HR officers answering the same old questions about my career aspirations, times when I resolved conflict in the workplace, times when I improved a system, times when I showed professional perfection!

Seems it all paid off... I was finally offered the job I'd had my heart set on since I first read the ad and couldn't be happier with my new career!

So here goes a new direction, a new lifestyle.

Out with old Franky, in with new!
