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 nailed it!

Never had them
Never wnted them
Now I have big french oooh la la ones
I can't type
I can't slip my shoes on
I can't press the seat belt button to
get Monte out of the car
I can't pick my nose on the sly
I can't get a little thing out of my eye
I can make impressive tap tap sounds when I am waiting
I can gesticulate
over the top
and put my hands in subtle
slightly glamorous poses
on my face when I am talking to someone
and trying to act interested in what they are saying
but secretly wondering
are they admiring my nails?


  1. hahaha - I used to have gel nails, can totally relate - wait til you scratch your ass in your sleep and wake up on the ceiling!!

  2. you will love 'em and hate 'em all at once. Especially when one drops off and you fingers don't match anymore.

  3. I go through stages with nails. I'm on the "off" stage right now.

  4. they drive me NUTS! Good luck! lol
