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.

I was trying to quit my sugar addiction when...

I was awarded a fabulous Sugar Doll Blogger Award!

wish I had of at least brushed my hair to accept it.
What a start to the day!
Quix from Quixotic Life (ha ha sorry don't know her name!) has awarded me a most prestigous award for my blog.
I would award it back to her but then this would never end.
So in return I am to pass it on.
Now just yesterday I gave a big shout-out to all my favourites - so looks like I have to go there again.
There are some I plug all the time who I think deserve this so heregoes:

Mommy Nanni Boo Boo this woman is funny. Seriously. (upcoming guest blogger for me..)
Woah Mama - great humour, inspiring fitness regime!
Consumption Rebellion - inspires me to be a better human being in general
Maisie and More - like her style
Girl Gone Child - this blogger is big-time, but hopefully not too big-time to accept award from Sharnia! Her blog is the epitome of cooool mama blogs.

Check out these if you haven't already - I sing their praises almost daily.
I am meant to write 10 things about me here aswell but feel I have done this already (times ten) 100 random facts about me here if you missed them.


  1. Congratulations Sharni! You are doing so well with your fabulous blog. I'm loving it! In other big news-Over on the happiness project our enduring aussie blog crushes post got a plug from Gretchen! So all the blogs on that list (and some on this one) will have had some traffic because lots of people clicked on the links!
    That was worth doing wasn't it??

  2. Aw shucks. I like Girls Gone Child too.

  3. I am meant to say you gals have to accept and pass on now and write 10 things about yourself..

  4. Awwww thanks so much Sharni! And thanks for the other blogs too! Off to have a read!

  5. Congratulations Sharna :)
    Keep up the good work.
