MEET THE NEW GIRL ON THE BLOCK

The Gympie Times - - READ -

Well, hello. It seems an in­tro­duc­tion is in or­der.

Yep, my name is “un­usual”. Feel free to give the French pro­nun­ci­a­tion a go, but I will also ac­cept Chanzy, Channy, Chonty and any other vari­a­tions you like.

I’ve had the same hair­cut since I was six years old and have no idea what’s un­der the fringe.

I live on the coast with an alope­cia -af­fected pomera­nian (as nekkid as the day you were born), but an im­mune- boost­ing child­hood cock­tail of dirt, dog slob­ber and dam wa­ter worth its weight in dis­in­fec­tant has left its mark and I’m def­i­nitely a coun­try girl at heart.

The other way to my heart is, of course, my stom­ach. I have an in­sa­tiable pas­sion for food – eat­ing it more so than cook­ing it (I’ll leave that to ex­perts like our res­i­dent chef Alas­tair McLeod).

I also de­vote a fair chunk of my down­time to work­ing on my getaway plan – Canada and Nor­way are next on my bucket list, but my closer-to-home happy place is Heron Island.

Noth­ing makes me more ex­cited than shar­ing the things I love; it’s what first drew me to jour­nal­ism and why there’s nowhere else I’d rather be.

You al­ready know the rest of the gang, so the only thing left to do is for me to get to know you – drop me a line any time, or look me up on Instagram @chan­tay­lo­gan.

Thanks for let­ting me be part of your

Week­end.
