Feeling lucky...

It is 1 month until settlement day. But I feel sad. Because there are many people out there who have lost everything, everything they love, cherish, have worked for, saved for, built, created. We spent all weekend trying to decide whether or not we should put a new roof on our house, while out there, people's roofs were all that was left. Its devastating, horrific, a complete nightmare. So far, all my friends and family and colleagues have been safe, but so many of them know people who have lost their homes. It's so far from us, yet so close. My husband and I have stopped thinking about what we can do to improve our new home this week. Instead we are deciding what we can give to help others rebuild their lives.


  1. How refreshing to hear someone wonder how they can help others during this economic crisis rather than think about themselves! We all could learn from you!

    Thank you for dropping by my blog and for your super kind comments on our kitchen. I absolutely adore your new house! Simply breathtaking. Happy moving/renovating! =)

  2. I totally agree. While I sit in our new home {we have just moved from Brissy to Mackay} I can't help but wonder, does it all really matter when others have lost so much.

    I've just come across your blog and can't wait to keep reading, your new home is gorgeous, I can't wait to see what you do with it.



Aw, thanks for your comments!
