Hi dear friends
I am sure many of you know Australia is experiencing many bushfires and we have a State of Emergency declared here. We do have 3 major ones in the Blue Mountains, besides others, that have taken homes and livelihoods. Very sad and heart wrenching news all round and we are all anxious at this time. Many of my dear friends from Redbubble have contacted me to see if we are ok. We are fine for now and I thank you for your concerns, it helps to know others are thinking of us.
We have a fire down the mountains and a fire above us and we are in the middle, the fear is that in the next 3 days, with high winds expected, they will meet in the middle and we will have a 300 kilometre fire wall.
Three fire fighters called at our door today to see if our house was prepared and what our plans were. John, myself and Rocky will leave when the time comes.
We can be so thankful to the brave volunteers, fire chiefs and all those involved that put their lives at risk for the sake of others….bless them all. I do feel safer knowing they are around.
Thank you again for your concerns and well wishes. I must tell you my car is packed with paintings, prints and Redbubble cards, amongst many other things that are treasured! I do not think I will be painting for a little while yet.
If any of my bubble friends are in the line of danger please stay safe and take care all.
Will be in touch
warm regards Linda xxxxx
