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.

Training, Renovating and Sheep Introductions

I feel like I am morphing into the Incredible Hulk.
I hope not, I want lean lavish toned arms - if I look like I could play fullback for the local rugby team next year I am going to sue the P.T
Having said that we have completed week 5 of our training.
PT says should expect to see some results between weeks 6-8.
If that means I will start turning a shade of green shortly I will bring training to an abrupt end!
(In all seriousness - I am feeling strong and fit and happy, I fit into a dress that didn't fit me before I was pregnant so that is reassuring!)

In other news, we are starting the process towards our kitchen renovations.
Exciting, have never been involved in such a grown up pursuit.
Hoping to have new kitchen and open plan living area complete before Christmas.
We'll see.
The Prince woke up every hour on the hour last night.
I had just acclimatised to sleeping again, so feeling VERY knocked around today (particularly after pumping iron last night.)
Cowboy is going to a sheep sale in town today.
I am putting on my best inappropriate shoes to head down to the dusty sheep yards with Prince in tow.
It is stinking hot and flies a-plenty - but I would like our boy to meet , sheep.
Like seeing his reactions to seeing animals for the first time!!!
That is news from my headquarters for now.


  1. I love how you say 'you've never been involved n such a grown up pursuit' as renovating a kitchen...and then go on to talk about your Son...

  2. hahahaha how right you are! See, sometimes it just doesn't register that I am someone's MUM!!! Still think of myself as a reckless wild child. God Renovations, parenting.... I am into very grown up pursuits aren't i.... sheesh
