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.

Wild Sheep couldn't drag me away

We are sitting down to a lovely steak and salad with a jacket potato.
The phone rings.
Cowboy is up in a huff and then out the door.
"Where are you off to?" I holler like a desperate house de-facto
" There are 400 sheep on the road 30kms out of town, I have to go sort it out"
"There is one dead cow on your plate" I say, annoyed at the constant demands of his Cowboyness. (or sheepboyness as the case might be)
So he flees the scene to see the fleece out in the middle of the road, in the lateness of the night in the middle of dinner.
I hope he comes back soon.

(please note that pic is not the Cowboy - but made me laugh I took it from here) 


  1. Livestock know when you are having dinner - they know that's the best time to jump the fence and wander the highways and byways.

  2. "So he flees the scene to see the fleece"... love the alliteration!!!

  3. hahahaha glad you liked it, I was quite chuffed with that line

  4. Maybe you should rename him the Shepherd :-)

  5. You are such a wizard with words Sharni...
