G’day! My name’s Emily and I’m gonna be a Jillaroo someday.
My favourite animals are horses, wombats, dogs, cats, wallabies and….. well, I guess I love ALL animals! Except maybe snakes. Urgh!
All my friends live ages away from me, and there aren’t many kids on the station my age. They’re either too old or too little.
So, anyway I get to stay at my friends’ houses on the holidays, and sometimes they come to my house. And we keep in contact on the internet and with letters where they tell me all the adventures they’ve been having, and I tell them all the adventures I have.
I love adventures! They are sneaky things… you have to go out and find them!
Please visit my friends too!
I live on a cattle station east of Tennant Creek with my mum, my big brother Jay, and my dog Aslan.
I don’t go to a school, I do home schooling, and there is a teacher who is on the computer who tells us what to do.
My mum is the station mechanic, so she fixes up the motorbikes and other vehicles when they break down.
Jay is 23 years old, and he’s a station hand. That means he looks after the cattle and moves them around the place. His girlfriend Sarah is a station hand too. She is so cool!
Jay works on a motorbike, but Sarah works on a horse called Opal. I wanna be like her when I’m older.
She said that before you get to be a station hand you have to be a Jillaroo.
So that’s what I’m gonna do!
