Back in the world...

Well, that's a couple of weeks of my life I won't get back. Being really ill is the worst! 
Not sure how I managed to get the kids back to school (and to school for the first time in one case!) with all books, lunchboxes, uniforms etc correct. Arrgghh. Hope the transition back to school was smooth for you all!   

Thoughts and prayers today for all those people affected by the Victorian bushfires - a tragedy on a scale we rarely see in our lucky country, despite living in a land of "droughts and flooding rains". To donate to the Bushfire Appeal through the Red Cross, go to https://www.redcross.org.au/Donations/onlineDonations.asp . Every bit will help a family just like yours and mine cope with loss on a scale I don't even wish to imagine. :( Till next time...  

P.S. Perhaps this Greek Proverb will help us think about the fires (and the floods in FNQ) in a way that might help comprehend it - "It is not good for all our wishes to be filled; through sickness we recognize the value of health; through evil, the value of good; through hunger, the value of food; through exertion, the value of rest."
