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.

She has 90 years on him

Another reason I am glad I moved to the OHT.
My 91 year old Grandma (who still lives on her own) and my 1 year old son.
I never would have thunk it.
And she lives just up the road!
I love that they are so close
She is sharp as a whip, and still puts her own bin out.
Monte grins like a trooper as soon as we pull in at Grandma's
he knows its walking stick o clock


  1. That is so sweet, and your Nan looks awesome for 91! :)

  2. That's fantastic, I love it when Nanna's get to have G-grandchildren.

  3. Wow- I wish my kids had great-grandparents. We're down to only having two grandparents let alone the greats. How wonderful for your little man.

  4. Gorgeous!!!! Monte looks like Dr Evil here, by the way.

  5. Aw, how sweet. GG missed meeting my Grandparents, but I swear when she was a baby my Grandma was there. I kept smelling her perfume and getting her vibe, and GG kept looking over my shoulder on the change table and smiling like she smiled at people she knew.
    P.S - Go Grandma!!! They breed 'em tough in OHT huh?

  6. Gorgeous! I really missed having my Grandma around when Lil-lil was born, I dreamt about her constantly while I was pregnant. You're really blessed.

  7. She is beautiful! How I miss my Lily!

  8. That is awesome...I haven't seen my grandparents since I was 7, they live in Poland.

    Monte is so lucky (and man, he looks like the cowboy!)

  9. 'walking stick o'clock'?! haha! I love it!
    and it sounds like your gran rocks!

  10. i am still laughing...walking stick o'clock!
    so great.
    Also, I love seeing pictures of the oldest and youngest generations of a family. There is something really amazing about a connection that spans between someone who lived through the deppression, a world war, the advances of technology she must have seen not to mention through fashions...and Monte who will see just as many advances to who knows where?
