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.

Award Winning Poetry - and I am a Trenery / Country Road Mama

Wow. I feel I have been very positive of late and really opening myself up to opportunites and going with my instincts. It is paying off!
I just won $100 voucher to spend with Trenery - a new range of clothing at Country Road through a fabulous blogger Tania McCartney.
Although this might not sound like much (even though it does) it is so great for me!
As first year of Mamahood with no income and living far away from shops this is like winning the lottery!!
How did I win it?
With this inspirational piece of prose.. that is how
The comp was to write about dressing for middle age or something (NB : NOT that I have any experience dear readers having just turned 30.)

On the slippery dip to middle age
One must not fall victim to fashion
Trying to look younger than your years
Is a sure fire recipe you'll come crashin'
The key is keeping it simple and classy
With minimal boob and minimal arsey
Be modest, let your natural beauty shine
Now hand me that Country Road Voucher - 'tis mine!
