For those of you who enjoyed my recent post on farm life I urge you to pop over to my friend Katie's blog Thyer Farming.
Katie was born in Scotland and moved to Australia in 2001. In 2005 she married local Yorke Peninsula farmer Ben who she runs the farm with. She is also mum to two beautiful children.
Katie is an inspiration. A 'real farmers wife' (unlike me who can't even drive a manual car). She has completely embraced farm life and has furthered her education so that her new Agricultural knowledge has enabled her to work on the farm constructively.
Her wonderful mum comes to Australia every year during harvest and seeding to look after the kids and free Katie up to drive the header (harvester) or tractor full time.

Katie is one of those rare people who is willing to give anything a go. I have the privilege of playing social netball with her and although she tells me "there's not much netball in Scotland" and had never played before, she throws herself in to every game with enthusiasm and a smile and has even had a crack at Centre on occasion.
Katie also has a degree in Interior Architecture (which I plan to put to use, although she may no know this yet) so keep your eye out for interesting interior and exterior projects around the farm. She has a unique eclectic style.
Should not forget to mention she can also catwalk, sing and dance!
