We all moan about the weather, no matter whether it is to hot, to wet or to cold, but my thoughts are very much with the Austrailian's caught up in the floods. (CLICK)
I have family and friends in Austrailia and this morning I was so pleased to get an e-mail from my oldest friend Hilary who is caught up in the floods in Queensland. Hilary and I have been friends since we were at Primary School. We went through schooling together and spent much of our childhood together and have remained in contact ever since.
Thankfully Hilary and her family live on a hill, but they are cut off and are running low on food supplies. The main thing is they are at the moment dry and safe.
According to the news Nine people have lost their lives, which is appauling. Here we have been battling the Big freeze as the news likes to put it and on the otherside of the world they are battling the floods. It appears Mother Nature is fighting back with everything she has and in some way's who can blame her, when we treat her with such contempt. If you are caught up in the Australian flood my thoughts are with you, Please stay safe and do not take any risks.
