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.

Hello dear friends. The Chronicles has been taking its final puffs lately, but it is because I have upgraded to my own site..... If you are a follower here I would be really really tickled if you were to continue that follow, the way to do it on my new site is to subscribe... I am running a competition at the moment too, so you could win a book for your efforts.

Also I am not sure what to do with the Chronicles  might shift it all over somehow to website, but not really sure how that is done... not ready to pull the pin on it.... though I think it can 'see the light' if you know what I mean..

I'd be chuffed if you subscribed and followed me over yonder... :-)


I have just updated the site and have an interview with Aussie Interview Man Richard Fidler, some poetry about Mice in the laundry basket and Monte-isms. Same stuff, easier to read...

Hope to see you at my new address.

Please let me know if you have come over, I don't seem to receive as much communication from people at my new addy and I miss it!

Hope to see you over there soon

xx (ps - Cowboy broke his wrist playing football, have had gruelling time of it - poor love, we had to drive 3.5 hours away for surgery and then had to wait 2 days - bloody OHT)


  1. You can still follow websites, I do it all the time. There is a way to transfer your followers to wordpress too, I think.

    Sharnanigans is just your chronicles with more options.

    This has been a slow week in the blogosphere I think, Sharni. Your site rocks, be patient.


  2. Sharni, it looks like the only way to follow on your new site is through email (which I don't like to do, I want get a feed through reader). I copied the link into my reader, but this is cumbersome and some people may not want to do this. Am I missing something?

  3. thanks for your comments gals. Kristin, I'll talk to my designer about that see if I can make it easier. thanks for feedback xx

  4. Missed you, but happy for you. Integrating change needs patience! We are all still with you. I think change is in the air for everyone. We'll all catch up and connect soon as we are ready :) x

  5. Ver impressive! looks fantastic!

  6. The new website is great! I definitely plan to be a regular visitor, but it's been a crazy week, sorry!
