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.

Assignments for the week please.

Happy Monday
It is piping hot here.
I don't like it
Anyhoo. I need some one horse town challenges. So far I have taken to photography, as challenged, posed with a crabstick, as challenged.... granted I haven't interviewed the oldest person in the OHT yet but it is coming.... (she is not feeling well at moment) and I haven't taken up Karate yet.... but I have a blank canvas of a week ahead of me.
This is reader interactive at its finest.
What would you like to read about? Send me off on assignment.
Go on.


  1. You could visit the local high school and offer your services with journalism and writing. You certainly have great experience. You could do a mentor type thing or just share your knowledge and experiences with the students. You might also get to meet some new people that you would not get to meet normally. Teachers/nurses all stick together in country towns. You would be a great asset to our schools if you lived near me so I am sure someone would be interested in your abilities. Just an idea! We are looking for mentors for our primary school kids here and I thought of you when I heard this but alas Hay to far away.

  2. hmmm... nudie run round the local?? :-P

  3. I've really left myself open for that kind've assignment haven't i!! hahaha

  5. What's on your to do list Sharni?
