Bali - take two

two new summer styles

the perfect winter dress
A wise person once said.  'If at first you don't succeed: try, try, try again. Don't give up too easily. Persistence pays off in the end" by American educator Thomas H. Palmer

Well this is my current mantra. I have been totally duped by my original manufacturer. Yes! she has promised and promised and still nothing. Now she doesn't even respond to me.

Luckily I have a lady on the ground in Bali helping me find my stuff. She has all of the board shorts and the screens. Now she is trying to get the rest of my clothing and patterns. Initially I was totally bumbed out when I finally accepted that I wasn't going to be seeing my goods anytime soon. Now I have come to terms with it and I am all systems go for the next round. I am heading back to Bali at the end of Feb to chat to a new manufacturer and also to hopefully retrieve my stuff from the very dishonest Linda.

I remember that when I started Fresco Creative all those years ago there were always set backs. There always are in the world of business so this is just all part and parcel. I am not going to give up. I will keep going to fulfill my dream.

The feeling of disappointment is an understatement to how I feel but no point dwelling on the past. Negativity never got anyone anywhere.

I am back - Gordon's Bay

Gordon's Bay

Oops had another little break. This time because I was moving house.

We have moved to the most amazing street in the most amazing part of Sydney. I had reservations about moving in that we left a beautiful home (which I renovated) to a more modest home. I thought it was all about the house but how wrong I was. I love our new modest little abode and I love being able to walk to the beach. It is so wonderful. 4mins to Coogee and 7mins to Clovelly and 2mins to Gordon's Bay.

Life is good.

It wasn't planned but I gave myself a little blog break.
What have we been doing? well...

we drank coffee

we swam

we packed

we had sleep overs

we ran through sprinklers

we opened Christmas presents from Santa

we sang Christmas carols at Carols by Candlelight

we danced

Santa came to visit?!!@#$%

we ate... a lot

and we baked.

So much fun, so busy and still so much more of the holidays to enjoy.

We move house in less than a week. Busy times ahead.

What have you been up to?
