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.

No ACDC? Ok then we'll do a Jazz Festival!

So ACDC didn't happen.

We have dealt with that and tomorrow ( my birthday if you must know) we are off to ..... Echuca, little town halfway between the One Horse Town and Melbourne  for a Jazz and Wine festival - MINUS Monte..... for 2 days!!!!

I am SO EXCITED. Wine, jazz, deluxe food, time, time, time...! LEISURE TIME! OH MY!

I am concerned that I might have to book into internet-aholics anon while I am there because I will miss the computer - which is sad, and precisely the reason I am going with my Cowboy and living it up for 2 little days with no technology in sight.

Anyway so I won't be writing or tweeting or facebooking or anything - just wanted to let you know that I still exist.

Catch you when I get back.

Oh and guess what - I am launching my website next week!!!

    i LOVE echuca! i had a wonderful holiday there years ago with the late hubby, we did the very typical riverboat thing, ate our way through the local fare, drank our way through the local wineries and spent our way through the local antiques stores.
