Hello, I hope you all had a fabulous New Year and are looking forward to 2015. We've not had a brilliant start here in Sth Australia with major bushfires. Normally I don't know anyone involved in local catastrophes but this time is different. An ex-sister-in-law whose house is still standing but the fire was very close. They have a small farm and the fire was on their road. Her hubby is a firefighter and she and her son and dog had to evacuate the property. Several friends evacuated to other people's homes and two of our children in different suburbs had problems breathing because of the smoke. This not only affected country people, but was close to several Adelaide outer suburbs too. One of our granddaughters is asthmatic and luckily she was okay and the wind changed direction. The fire is still going and lots of our volunteer firefighters are still out there waging war against the fire.
Hopefully the fire will soon be out, I think they have also done some back-burning to stop it spreading.
On a happier note, we had a lovely restful holiday with friends staying with them near the beach and celebrating his 60th birthday. We watched the midnight fireworks display on New Year's Eve and then wishes him a happy birthday for the 1st day of 2015.
