Harriet Bremner and Alex Thomas

Spinning yarns that save lives.

“I’ve been caring for my Dad since I was 15 years old, and I’m on a mission to prevent what happened to him and our family from happening to anyone else’s.
 
#PlantASeedForSafety is a rural social change initiative that puts health, safety and wellbeing front of mind, and ultimately, brings people home to their loved ones at the end of each day.”

  • Words like hazard, near miss, incident [YAAAAWN], policy, procedure, risk assessment, hazard identification, investigation, report + risk analysis… [SIGH] 

…are almost guaranteed to send the boys a ‘runnin. 

And yet speak to anyone about augers, PTOs, windmills or welding flash and they KNOW this stuff can kill (or at least hurt… a lot). 

At the end of the day? 

The most important thing of all is that you talk about it… in whatever way makes SENSE. 

Bravo @joshua_bryant23 + co., bravo!

Yup, it’s all big boobs, big feelings + big changes in the Thomas-Harper household, and we’re all drunk on love, milk and newborn magic.

FUN FACT: both my babieS* (TWO… ohhh my geerrrrd 🫠🫠🫠) were born to this song. Gets me EVERY time. 😭😭😭😂

Big love to those who’ve sent messages + thanks for your patience while we get used to our new norm (code for: you may never hear back, LOL). xxx

Like, LOVES cows. 🐮

But not only is she the Top Of The Pops when it comes to trailblazing the cattle industry, she’s also a vet, a farmer, a former finalist in the Zanda McDonald Awards + a mummy to two (…say it with me…) ADORABLE children.

Despite some pretty cray-cray odds, she’s got grit + determination like no other and she also just HAPPENS to be my cousin. ❤️ 

Endlessly proud of you Elle.

I was at war with my body first time round, but this time?

Let’s just say I’m ‘learning to love it’.

  • Look at that young whipper-snapper, ain’t she cute?! 😂 

I’ll admit it: I spent several years as public enemy number one while I was ‘cutting my teeth’ in mining, shall we say. 🤦🏻‍♀️ 

Instinctively? I knew I was doing it wrong. 

I knew ‘compliance’ didn’t resonate + I sure as hell knew it wasn’t going to fly in ag. 

Today - it’s a different story. 

EVERYTHING is intrinsically connected to the ‘why’. 

Because at its absolute core, safety’s about one thing, and one thing only: 

 …coming home to our loved ones at the end of each day.

Too many cooks do NOT spoil the safety broth, coz’ safety survives (and thrives!) on diversity of thought. 

It’s true: the single, most powerful way of combatting ‘we’ve always done it this way’ is to make sure that ‘we’ includes a little ‘she’. 😜
