My goodness what a wild few days it's been here in Queensland. With four days of constant rain and high winds we have been very lucky indeed that we still have power and that the house has only had some minor flooding in the garden. I'm happy to say it's only my veggie garden that has wet feet.
With roads closed and wild winds about, it's been the kind of indoor weather that's perfect for..
Baking scones and drinking tea..
Games of Scrabble..
A spot of crochet..
And reading gorgeous books.. Pia's is one of my very favourites.
And while I'm so thankful that my family and I are safe and dry, my love, thoughts and prayers go out to all those being affected by the storms and flooding that now stretches throughout Queensland and New South Wales. With rising tides over the coming days, some areas are still very much being affected and will be for days to come. At times like like this I just feel like I want to start wandering the streets and helping people in need. If you would like to send your support, Red Cross has set up a Flood Appeal. Baked Relief has also been set up again and are doing an amazing job of feeding the wonderful volunteers you are providing much needed services around the region. I'm also looking for other ways to help. If you know of any please leave a comment and let me know, so I can pop them up on the blog.
Stay safe everyone!
