why do i have to live in the city??

Seriously, i want to live in the country. I want to have so many acres that it takes hours to drive from one end of my property to the other. I want horses and cattle and chickens. Actually no, pass on the chickens, i have a phobia of birds, but definately horses and cattle.

I blame my mum for this. Must be something in our genes. My great grandparents had a farm and my nan and mum lived there for awhile, back in the day.
I guess my bird phobia comes from my dads side of the family.....

Not that ive never even ridden a horse. Unless you count pony rides at playgroup christmas parties...or this....

no, that doesnt count.


I have a slight obsession with McLeods Daughters. For those of you in the US - Mcleods daughters is an aussie tv series about a group of girls running i guess what you would call a ranch. I have all 6 series on DVD and watch the show religiously. Must say, farm work is made all the more interesting by the, uh, "farmers" that work on the neighbouring property


yea, anyone want to borrow my dvds? hahahaha

Ive recently found this website http://thepioneerwoman.com/

Its the online blog of a real life city chick that met a cowboy and now runs a massive cattle ranch with him and their 4 kiddos. She is a fantastic photographer and cook also. Lots of inspiration on her blog (along with a few yummo cowboys...). Now off you go to look...or drool...take your pick.

I love the photo on the, er, horse! :) That one doesn't count, but pony rides...that's still a live creature you're riding! I think that would count!

You sound so wistful. I need home comforts so I would be no good in the country or with real live things that then aren't live because you have to eat!
