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.

Ooohh Baby Baby it's a small world

The World Wide Web is a piece of work isn't it?

For writing and instant gratification it is the best medium since John Edwards.

Since launching my website last week I have had a little gander at the analyitcs of it all and am astounded where readers have stopped by from!

I was tickled pink to discover readers have stopped by from Israel (Hey Ramona) , Tonga (Hey Leanne) , Denmark (Hey Karston) , Japan, Switzerland, UK, USA, Canada, New Zealand, Turkey, Belgium and did I mention Griffith (town just nearby my own One Horse Town) ?
I'd really like to get some interaction happening here, perhaps I can put together the United Nations of Sharnanigans... hahaha

Here is a little poem in your honour:

Salutations to those in Washington and Aloha to you in Hawaii
High five to you in Minnesota and greetings to you in Malawi
Hey there UK peeps reading this from Birmingham
Whassup in Leeds and Gloucester anyone reading this from Buckingham?
Whats cookin' in Brooklyn?
What are you gobbling in Turkey?

OK this is just silly. I went off my own poem midway through it, but I reserve the right to do that.

You know what? I like to write my silly bits and put them on the Chronicles,
Is that OK? This is like my playground for ideas... methinks..
For non-silliness - I have a new competition going on over at my website - its a caption one so enter if you feel creative 

* silly unrelated pic not mine but from here 


  1. Hi from Birmingham. You have put the smile back on my face as my smile was slowly but surely slipping off my face! I love your silly bits keep them coming. :) xx

  2. High five back from Minnesota and please continue to break in on your own poems and put bits of cherished wisdom and silliness here. I open your writing with puffer in hand. Either way, it takes my breath.

  3. Monte-ism posted, hope I did it right. Keep it up girl!
