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.

Thanks Blogosphere

I am very busy today - but I wanted to make my presence felt 

whatever that means!

I wanted to take a moment to say something from the bottom of my heart. Grab your tissues.

I am so grateful that I became one who blogs.

I can honestly say that blogging has done so much for me.

It has given me a passion, it has cleared out all the negativity that used to lurk within me and I'm seriously a new person since I started blogging!

Living out in the OHT used to be the bane of my existence - particularly because I missed socialising and the great connections with friends.

I have made so many friends through blogging - and honestly - I feel like these friends are going to be friends for life and I haven't even seen them in 3D yet! ( I say yet, because I will meet you dammit)

I could be living in Nyngan and I'd be happy, thanks to the Blogosphere.

I love the friends I have made on here, I think I have more common with the people I have found from all over the world and all over Australia than most of the people who I have met and actually seen! 

Thank-you for letting me into your worlds and for coming into mine

Keep writing your posts and hurry up with them 

I have OCD when it comes to checking blog updates

proper posts later.... i'm soooooo busy... lots of excitement in my life too.. reveal later


  1. Bitch! I'm hearing ya! Isolation ain't isolation when you're in the blogosphere! One day, one day, we WILL be having beers together on my deck or floating down the river with the esky inbetween our kayaks. YEW!

  2. Wow I was pondering writing a very similar post last night! Bless you! I feel the same way xx

  3. Sharni...even if you do move to Nyngan, we'll have to meet up. I'd also like to see you in 3D at some point at not with those funky glasses my husband got the last time he went to see a movie (Avatar in 3D)

  4. Oh Sharni, I feel the same way about blogging and the awesome people we "meet" in cyberspace.

    And oh yeah, 3D meeting WILL happen!!

  5. Yep - I'm another who has already gained heaps from blogging. Some how things seem to become clear as you sit and tap away at the keyboard. Nice to know there are so many like-minded blog buddies out there.

  6. Hi Sharni, I'm new to blogging and I don't as yet have many comments (maybe because what I write is boring lol!) but I am so happy to have an outlet to express myself. It's like I am possessed and need to let it out there. I too feel OCD when checking my updates.

  7. you would be happy in Nyngan? Good grief you must be happy then :)

    Its great isn't it?

  8. Totally! I agree with Karls, here's to one day floating down that river together!

  9. You have lovely blog here, glad you visited mine so I could find you, I'm now following and look forward to getting to know you.


  10. I feel the same way, Sharni. This medium changed my life! Can't wait to hear about all that you have going on :)

  11. I can so relate. I am eternally grateful for the friendships I have made through blogging. Really truly have met some of the most talented and thoughtful people I know.


Lovin' your thoughts leave them here or email me direct.
Oh and Hi!
