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 posed with then ate a crabstick for a blogger in New Zealand

Dear Nikki,

When you visited my one horse town many years ago - you told me you enjoyed a crab stick from the Fish and Chip Shop.

You looked all over Australia to find one up to the standards... but alas.

You turned vegan when your plight went sour.

So, here, today from my one horse town in Australia - to your one hoof town in NZ - I went to the very Fish and Chip shop - and bought a crabstick purely so I could show it to you.

Here it is.

I hope it is how you remember it.

(Nikki blogs at Learning how to be me)

(please note, I had dilemmas when trying to pose with a crabstick. It is not something in my usual repertoire
and please note again I was trying to photoshop myself pretty but accidentally made the pic look like I spent too long in the solarium - then I accidentally saved it... sorry if you need sunglasses to view)


  1. OMG! This is my favourite blog post of all time!! I am sitting here in my PJs in my one hoof town laughing out loud! Thanks Sharni!!

  2. hahaha! Glad I made you laugh! It made me laugh doing it - so laughter all round - got to be a good thing right?
    (and just for the record - it was SOOOO nice - think I am going to get obsessed with them now)

  3. Oh, I was totally obsessed with those things (which T-Do would confirm!).. I just couldn't get enough of the things!

  4. Priceless Sharni!-You are a woman of your word! Yours is my favourite blog by far. BTW the crabstick doesn't look as good as it sounds-but I know from experience that anything deepfried is absoulutely delicious. I also love your tags Sharni- I wonder what links that will turn up hahhaaha!
    @eternallymine fantastic challenge.

    Score = 1 for Sharni.
