Cow shit all over my head, running down my back.

Have you ever had cow shit on your head? Runny, green, grass filled, warm and steaming cow poop. Not many people have, but I have. For the full story……   The Farmer’s Wife is a series of short stories about some of the moments which shaped who I am today. It highlights how planning and […]

Education or Indoctrination?

Is our current education system offering education or indoctrination? The later is usually associated with religious or political ideals. As schools are generally getting bigger, they appear to be becoming less able to offer students the freedom to learn without indoctrinating them into the system. Or maybe they never were. Those who can’t be indoctrinated, […]

The Farmer’s Wife – Motorbike Moment

I remember learning to ride George’s motorbike. It was a two wheeled Suzuki ER 185cc, bright yellow and covered in mud, or was it cow shit. Probably both. It was aged beyond its years from some seriously tough farm work. I had been going ok, getting the hang of it quite nicely.   The Farmer’s […]

The Farmer’s Wife – Hay Carting Initiation

Farming and hay carting seem to go hand in hand, so it was only going to be a matter of time before I experienced the joys of the job. Now for the novice out there, hay carting takes place late spring and through summer, often during the hottest, driest part of the season………. The Farmer’s […]

How to bring the holiday home

How can you make everyday, just like your holidays? You know what I mean, when you are on holiday nothing is urgent (except catching your plane on time), everything happens as and when you feel like it and you can plan or just wing it if you like. Well at least this is the case […]

The Farmer’s Wife – One of my Many Moments

My family decided it was time to meet my boyfriends family; not really sure exactly when this was, but most likely around the time we announced our engagement, which was to be combined with George’s 18th birthday. I know, so young, but so very happy. My mum and dad visited, were shown around the farm […]

The Farmer’s Wife – Meet the Parents

I recall the first visit to the farm. I was excited as George’s old valiant AP6, with its spotted paint job and touched up rust, no seat belts, low bucket seats and wide mag rims rattled its way down the very rough track to his family farm. That was the main road, we still had […]

Is Truth Subjective?

I spent much of my late childhood, teens and early adulthood, believing that the world could be pretty simple if everyone just told the truth and did the right thing. You know what I mean. It is either black or white, wrong or right, isn’t it? This has probably been the longest learning curve of […]
