(some things may be stretching the truth just a bit)


  1. I hear you, I was a cook on a cattle station in QLD and I was all this and more as well. Fantastic time. Enjoy! Bushbelles

  2. Honestly I think I would get bored if I didn't do everything else plus it is part of properly experiencing the lifestyle.

  3. I LOVE IT...people ask me all the time what is a governess is. They just don't get that it isn't just about one thing. It touches on everything.

    Love it
