You know you’ve got a country mum if . . .

Ashley Walmsley pays tribute to country mums in Queensland Country Life:

MUMS – what a great invention.

There’s nothing they can’t do.

Country mums, the ones in regional and rural areas, seem to be able to do all that and a bit more again.

From the paddock to the pantry, the school run to the shearing shed, the tuckshop to the tractor, the saleyards to swimming lessons: country mums are as adaptable as they are knowledgeable. . . .

Some, like 22: She’s used the shovel more for dealing with snakes than pottering in the garden don’t apply in New Zealand. Could you add some that do?
