A Positive Outlook


We moved in with another neighbour on Monday to give our previous hosts a bit of a break. This is the view from her verandah where I sat and drank my tea this hot, steamy morning. The news of the destruction of Cyclone Yasi started to trickle in from up north. Queensland has really taken a battering of late.

Back at our flood-affected unit, the tiler started tiling yesterday and has made good progress already. We reckon we'll be able to move back home as soon as the floor is done. We can have cold showers (welcome in this weather) and get a little one-ring stove in there... brush up on our one-pot meals... it'll be like posh camping!

And I picked up the photos from the framer and delivered them to the bookshop owners in readiness for the flood appeal exhibition tomorrow night. They look really good! (if I say so myself). I'm told there has been a huge response and they are struggling to fit all the photos on the walls. If you are in the Brisbane area tomorrow evening, you should come along.

The view from the balcony is so lovely and green ~ Thankfully there are no lives lost or injuries from this cyclone - Queensland has certainly taken a battering.

came via Dianne's site.

Last year this time, I was in the Gold coast, and on New Year's day, I was in Brisbane. Now my eyes are glued to the TV watching your cyclone Yasi.

As the Bligh says, the news from Yasi is good and bad. I think it illustrates the value of preparation, of following instructions, and of strenuous building codes. Well done, FNQ.

Of course, you will take shots of the exhibition for us? Pretty pulease ...
