I would not normally post about things like this but these are extraordinary times.
It seems the government in Australia are largely responsible for the inability of the fire services to contain the bush fires that are causing so much devstation, because they have radically cut their funding. When Governments do not step up, we have to.
It is hard to know what we can do from this distance, but money can provide all sorts of resources that the Fire Fighters need. One messaged that they need more face masks to protect them from the fumes and volunteer Fire Fighters are having to pay for the petrol that goes into their fire trucks.
There are a few places to donate. The Red Cross being one. However I am sceptical of large organisations. I have been following Celeste Barber for a couple of years now and as far as you can trust anyone you only ‘met’ online, I trust her. This is where I have donated and I share this just in case you wanted to do something to help but didn’t know how to.

Willing it to rain in Australia, wishing everyone involved safe.
It is my birthday today, and look what a lovely card my daughter and her children made for me. Particularly love the portrait by Little Miss M (7).
Do you remember last year when my nephew and his friends were on the Mongo Rally and wrote a song for me?
Well Aaran who put it all together has a new song just out: Amber Skies
I think it is beautiful.
And if you want to see and hear the song written for me – I’m known as Dondi by my nieces and nephews – here it is again – earworm alert!
I took my lovely friend for a surpise day out – we had FUN.
Friends who you can be silly with are precious!
“Let’s play a Game,” says I.
I was thinking a card game, Snakes and Ladders, or Ludo.
Off Big Bro and Little Bro went and brought back Twister – Little Bro was spinning the pointer and taking the photos.
