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.

Fashion Victims

I did it.
I entered.
For new readers I entered the Fashions on the Field at the One Horse Town Races.
Did I do a demeaning twirl on the stage?
I'll have you know I did it for one reason and one reason only.
I did it for the Chronicles of Sharnia.
Because I said I would.
So thank-you for inspiring me to do cracked things I wouldn't otherwise!!
Getting me out of my comfort zone and able to try new things and laugh.
I didn't even make the first round hahaha.

Next, Cowboy entered the Men's division. Again, clearly the 'suavest' competitor - but no, not a look in from the judges.
Eternally optimistic we then entered as a best couple and damn it we were!
Unfortunately... again, only according to us.
Sure we walked off laughing, shafted - for the THIRD TIME (!!!) beaten by the cloned non-fashionistas next to us.
We put it down to the fact the one horse town judges needed to visit towns with more horses occasionally - because we had it goin' on....


  1. Love it, why the hell not? You only live once!

  2. Sharni you both looked gorgeous! good on you! I hope you had a great time- I just noticed cowboy sans hat- perhaps he was disqualified...

  3. Throw caution to the wind I say! Good for you. If the judges didn't understand the fabulousness that is you, they DO NEED TO visit a town with at least TWO horses! :D

  4. Judging by the picture above, you clearly didn't win because you guys didn't wear hats. I'm sure it's a technicality, really, because you DID have it going on...

  5. Ha I didn't even notice we were the only hat-less ones til now!! We both had hats but decided against them last minute

  6. You were robbed ! Definitely the best on the field I say !

  7. I was going to say that you were robbed, but I see someone already has! Instead I'll say it must have been rigged! You looked great and it looks and sounds like a load of fun!
