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.

The Universe wants me to take a longer bloggy break

I can't force it really can I....

I just wrote my heart out. I mean it. The worlds longest most detailed post. I linked it to all sorts of amazing, interesting blogs.
I wrote it as Monte screamed, trying to focus on the words and not the fact that this controlled crying thing is tearing my heart out aswell as my hair.
I wrote about my commitments for 2010 - I wrote a whole lot of positive... I wrote about embracing the year - embracing things - I wrote affirmations about all my goals... and the damn thing deleted itself... it fell into the great abyss.
I am taking this as a sign from the universe to step off blog land until true inspiration hits....
OK I will.....
I could be back tomorrow, I could be back in a few weeks, I could be back in an hour.
But I can't force these things.
Especially when Fritz is standing by next to my delete button. (our German Ghost)
Word up bloggers.
'Til the right moment arrives...


  1. I can understand exactly what you're saying. In my next sleep post I will write more about how I cracked the sleep thing (well sorta, it only took almost 3 years!). Though remember don't force the controlled crying thing if it's breaking your heart, I learnt at Tresillian you don't have to let them cry it out to get them to sleep. Just really listen to him, really listen to him. Is it breaking your heart? Really breaking your heart? Is he really upset? Or just pissed off? If he's really heartbroken, then go to him. Take care of yourself. x

  2. Oh hon, CIO method is tough! I've been there and couldn't do it. I agree with what Corinne had said. Follow your mama instinct. And do what your heart tells you to do. Hang in there luv. Hugs.

  3. Peace out Sista, see you back here when life allows it. xx

  4. Man! Do what you've gotta do love!

    Oh and I fucking hate it when all my hard work (or words) go down the drain.

    Drive, revive, survive?

  5. Ugh. I feel ya! Sleep issues suck, we have been good for a while, but the 3am sneak ins have started again so I've had to crack down again... GG cried herself to sleep last night and tonight. Hang in there. xoxox

  6. chill and concentrate on family. The words will come back when they (and you) have some clear brain space.

  7. Isn't it wild how the blogging world does that to us? I agree - it's a sign to take your time!
