Last Day at Work for the year - petrol queue and a fancy lunch

December 24, 2008 | Leave your thoughts

I don’t know what it is like in other places in the world… But here in Sydney you have to plan your week around filling up with petrol on Tuesdays (or Wednesday mornings) as the price often jumps up 15 cents on Thursday! I don’t normally fill up on the way to work as the queues are shocking (often causing traffic jams) but today I was running on empty and besides, I suddenly saw a sketching opportunity.A rare black and white sketch in the pages of my journal!

I normally chicken out of sketching my food during work lunches – but didn’t today. Didn’t quite feel in the groove today but am posting this as this spread completes my handbook (filled up in 5 weeks!)

Perfect timing to start a new book for my summer holidays. I AM looking forward to using a moleskine again (large watercolour type) I can’t see myself choosing a handbook to use again – the paper just wasn’t easy to watercolour on and felt cheap.

I do plan to be sketching and posting over the next few days but just in case I don’t…..Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas/ New Year wherever you are and whatever you are doing.
