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 had resigned myself to the fact that most of my social life in this One Horse Town was spent online, when I made a friend in the One Horse Town (with three horses) online.
Turns out there is more than one horse here. Who knew?
A little while back, my website was featured in the local newspaper.
Afterwards I received a lovely email from a very inspiring local lady.
Her name is Elle.
She moved from the city with her hubby and kids  from the city for a tree-change.
They bought a motel and she opened up a shop called “Hayven” (clever, huh? – oh the OHT is called Hay in case I have not mentioned that)
Whilet many shops in the One Horser decided to stick with the original decor from the seventies, in sweeps this ambitious newcomer and presents the OHT with the most gorgeous little boutique shop you are ever likely to see.
Think Coco Republic standards.
It is pure class.
Homewares, jewellry, clothing, beautiful gifts. Everytime I walk in there other shoppers are always oohing and ahhing and words like “Beautiful..” “Gorgeous” “Divine” are heard around the shop.
You know the type.
She keeps it new and fresh and …. OK – you see, I just love this shop and love she believed enough in her passion enough to make it happen (cue in: Flashdance)

Take your passion, and make it happen!
