Hi, welcome to my website

Balancing cattle property management with creativity

Working as an IT professional for decades was a great career. I loved it: worked hard, earned a good living and made some great friends. But I decided to walk away in 2008. It was about re-engineering my life for a healthier lifestyle. It wasn't a minor change, it was mega. I joined my husband Chris, managing a 10,000 acre cattle property in South East Queensland.

Oh my goodness.

I had no idea when I made that decision, just how difficult it would be to adjust to living remotely – 60km to the nearest shop! Nor did I appreciate the challenges I would face running a primary production enterprise. I was compelled to blog about my experiences.
