I’ve learned that there is always another wave coming*

*“I’ve learned that there is always another wave coming. Translated that means there is always tomorrow. No matter how badly you get caught inside, if you can just hang in there and keep paddling, the set is going to pass and there will be a lull afterwards. So don’t give up, just take your pounding, wait until the set passes, then make your move.”

I wish it would be less fuzzy but that's what you get when you belay with one hand and take photos with the other...

My first day as a jillaroo…

Well.... When I said that I was not going to update this space very often due to poor access to internet connection, I did not know how much I was going to be right about it!

I am leaving this morning for my first day at work on a cattle station.
Yes, my first experience as a jillaroo !!

Well yes, I see you coming here, maybe I have watched "Australia" too many times (is three times too many?)
But it is not going to be as glamorous as Nicole Kidman would like me to believe, riding horses in the sunset in stunning landscapes (although I am in the same area where the film is supposed to take place)

There will be probably more of de-horning, de-sexing, shots, marking and running in the yards involved, although I will make sure I wear the appropriate jeans, checkered shirt, leather hat and boots (I now understand much better the concept of "boot cut").

Anyway I will let you know as soon as possible :-)

And who knows, maybe I will meet my personal Hugh Jackman there...

Or I will be back in a week crying for my mother and begging to wear a business suit again.
