Cyclone Ului

Well, I've just been though my first cyclone, a category 3 and very scary, so I'd hate to think what a category 4 would be like.

I'm so sorry to everyone I wasn't able to respond to, but we've only just got our power back after 3 days, so please be patient and I'll answer everyone as soon as I can.

I've had to throw out all the things from my fridge and freezer that didn't quite make it, what a horrible job that was! I also found it very upsetting having to throw away food when so many people go without it every day.

But, we're all safe and only suffered minor damage and God willing I won't have to go through another one ever again.

Special Order!

I've had a special request from Christie from Widdlewuns (maker of beautiful nappies and babies clothes) and also my talented Daughter:) Christie was very specific in what she wanted, a nice hard bar of soap that smelt of vanilla and mandarin.

I wanted to come up with something that looked really nice for her, something bright and cheerful. I'm really happy with the final result and it smells amazing.

First Sunday Donation

Well it's the first Sunday of the month again; I can't believe how quickly it has gone.

This month Rebecca has nominated to help orphans in Thailand. The charity is called Hands Across the Water and is run by Peter Baines a NSW policeman who worked in forensics and Gil Williams a UK policewoman.

Every cent donated will go directly to improving the lives of children at orphanages in Thailand. Not one cent is spent on administration (how great is that?) any costs incurred in running the charity are personally absorbed by Peter and other board members. There really are some wonderful people around and I'm sure they would appreciate all the help they can get.

So come on everyone, head on over to Hands Across The Water to donate your $10.00 now.
