Hi and welcome to my blog.
My name is Tanya Kitto (this is me 😃 ) and I’m a farmers wife. We live on our family farm in the Midwest of Western Australia.
I’m wanting to use this space to share a little about my life, hoping to touch and maybe help others understand a little more about farming as well as connect with other farmers wives.
So before I became a farmers wife, I was born and grew up in Geraldton Western Australia. By the time I was about 15 I was determined I was going to marry a farmer. I wanted to live on a farm and be a farmers wife. When I stop and think about that it amazes me because it shows me how I can set my mind to something and the Universe will back me up. I left school in the last term of year 12 to work in a farm machinery dealership where after a couple of years I had found and a little bit stalked 😯the now love of my life.
After another couple of years I had talked him into letting me move out to his farm and let him think it was a great idea if we got married 😄. So I moved out the farm, we got married and in a span of 5 years we had 4 children, which are my life force, well they have been, but now they’re teenagers so they don’t need mum quite so much and THAT is something I’m trying to learn to deal with. But there will be more on that later.
I love helping run our farm and have not long come to the realisation that I’m a very important spoke in the wheel. My life is generally home based, when I’m not on the road running around after the kids, but I do love to get out in the paddock and see what’s going on. This year is going to be a very interesting one as I’ve decided there’s a few things I want to learn, both farm and non farm related.
I LOVE cooking and will share some of my favourite recipes as well as people who inspire me to try new recipes.
I enjoy paper craft and taught myself to sew very simple things, so I’m hoping this blog will remind me to sit and do more of that as well as share it.
What I express on my blog is my own personal opinion, feelings and thoughts, so please be aware of your comments as you write them.
If there is anything in particular you would like to learn or know about rural life, please ask. I’ll do my best to answer or write a post on it.
