We left on Monday due to the high alert, came back on Tuesday thinking that all was well only to hear (straight after our lovely nap) that we had to leave again if that was our ‘fire plan’. Which is was. So off we drove again. Cat, Kid and Kaboodle. I don’t honestly think that any of us know if we are coming or going but Belladonna has been busy trying to establish a new ‘territory’ (in Glen Waverley) against the cheeky black interloper that lives next door. As I tried to explain to her this morning, ‘You don’t have any rights here honey, you don’t live here. At least not permanently. We hope.’
Now we are fleetingly visiting to collect car and to water thirsty plants. It’s so nice to be home and so not nice to know that we will be leaving in an hour to return to the in-laws to wait out the extreme fire danger that is tomorrow’s horrendous heat.
It has been stressful to say the least. Thank God for workable and generous in-laws though – what would we do without family?
I also just wanted to say a huge ‘THANK YOU’ for all of the wonderful comments that have been left on my last blog entry. It truly made a difference to feel supported and I do feel better – just not all better yet. Reading your comments made me feel so held and what’s all the more amazing is that I’ve never met most of you. So thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for all your words and thoughts and love. It means more than you can know.
So – I’ll be off again. Brevity – who knew I had it in me? I’ll post more when I have access to the computer again and have an uninterrupted 5 minutes to type.
I hope that we all remain safe and sound tomorrow and that the terrible bushfires come to an end soon. I for one am very much longing for the soft cool touch of Autumn.
Blessings on your Caravan
