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.

Joyous Pants

Just in case you have been wondering "How on earth did Sharni deal with it when her crankiness expired at midnight?"

I thought I would put your mind at ease.

I am wearing my joyous pants today.

They were quite easy to squeeze into despite being up at Dawn's bottom.

To ward off the crankiness I did 20 minutes flat out on the treadmill.

I wanted to stash up some endorphins in order to defend against Cranky Pants trying to sneak back in.

He is a sly bugger.

And, obviously, a bloke.

In the process of treadmillin' it I learnt something about myself.

Come to think of it, since I took up the fitness thing I have been learning a fair bit about myself.

I haven't been on a treadmill since the days of gym in Sydney - long ago...

Today I ran 2.1 km on it, non-stop.

Big deal? ha! Probably not to the fit among you but I have never thought of myself as someone with any amount of physical ability.

My realisation was what I ran non-stop is equivalent to what we have to run with the PT at the park.

Though with him it is around the oval 5 times - which seems more daunting

Each time I have to do it I claim "I can't do it - it is too far" and end up walking half of it.

Good Morning Epiphany!

I can do it!

I did it on the 'mill - so I can do it in the park.

It was actually pretty easy. I could have gone faster than I did.

I am fitter than I realised.

My mind just needs to get on the same page as my body and stop with the "I can'ts..."

Oh it is nice to be back in my joyous pants.

So nice.


  1. Welcome back Sharni :)
