Local Bushfire

Just a quick post to let people know we're fine. The bushfire has been close to where we live but luckily for us the strong easterly wind was blowing the fire away from where we are. Unfortunately many others have not been so lucky - I believe 41 (now 72) homes have been lost and many more damaged. I know of one local textile artist who has lost everything and another friend who had a very lucky escape. Thinking of everyone who is affected.

Thank goodness you are safe. Its so heartbreaking to watch what people are going through and what they have lost. What's happening to our beautiful country lately ... cyclones, storms, floods, fires .... how much more can we take. Take care.
