About Me

My photo
I am a full-time mama with a passion for writing and talking to fascinating people. I live in a one horse town with a Cowboy and my son. Thank Lord for cyberspace! I lived a colourful life in Sydney for a number of years. Working in advertising and journalism for FPC and the Sydney Morning Herald. During my time in Sydney I competed in a Dragon Boat race, choreographed a dragshow, used the Share Accomodation advertisements as a way to meet men and was told by Noiseworks frontrunner Jon Stevens that I was a bitch! Then came the decision to move back to country for 3 months to help out my Father with newspaper business while he was having treatment. Convinced I was a city girl I was caught by surprise when I fell in love with a farmer (and no, he didn't want a wife... still doesn't it seems!) convinced him that we needed to see the world, popped off to Vietnam to teach english in Saigon - before realising that the "food" in Nam didn't agree with me... turned out to be Monte - my son who is now with the Cowboy and I back in country NSW! I am in a wonderful stage of my life where I am focusing on the things that really make me tick. Including writing these chronicles.

Today I had reason to do a little computer chair dance!

Tell me if this is lame, but I am so excited about the interview I read from a lovely blogger, Corinne from A day in the Life .
On my blogroll to the side I can see when new posts are on the blogs I follow - and as a new postie appears, I jump on it and have a read.

So this morning I see that Blog This has New Member Monday interview.
I always like to read these because love to discover new blogs.
I was featured in it a week back which gave me a buzz.
Can you imagine how I felt when this weeks new Member, Corinne was asked what her favourite blog was that she had discovered on Blog This was and she said mine???
Well I nearly fell of my chair!
I am used to the answer to this being Frills in the Hills, or Fat Mum Slim but when I saw the Chronicles of Sharnia there in black and white, I had to readjust the monitor and do a little chair dance. (haha, googled chair dance and the accompanying pic made me laugh. Nothing like my dance but wish it was)
It completely made my day.
Yesterday my pal from She Writes, Heather who blogs about emotions in every day life, paid me a lovely compliment by putting me on her blogroll as "Australia's answer to the Pioneer Woman" - this made me want to get up on the table and dance, because the Pioneer Woman... well, she really is the ducks guts of bloggers. Even has a cookbook to her name!
So what am I trying to say here?
... to write about my life and my thoughts and know that this has the ability to get strangers to laugh and even interested enough to read gives me the greatest of all feelings! The greatest!
This is what I set out to do when I created my blog but really wasn't sure if I could achieve it. To have achieved that just with a couple of people is success to me. So thank-you ladies. Sincerely, from the bottom of my post.

(ps apologies for inconsistent fonts. What is with that)
