But we were fine, thanks to those battery operated lights bought for the BrisStyle Twilight Market in December. Wine looks so beautiful under twinkling lights and we tried it ignore the fact that it was warm. Pity the same couldn't be said for the main course of peanut and sultana sandwiches. However, the dessert of mini meringues which the grandchildren didn't eat at our Christmas lunch went down a treat.
|A Little Night Reading - I can see the musical now.|
The power has been restored, the roads are open and this morning we drove miles to find fuel for the almost-empty car and food to re-stock what had to be thrown out of our fridge and freezer. It was the first time we had an opportunity to see first-hand some of the devastation left by the flood. We have so much to be thankful for - our family and friends are all safe.
The BrisStyle committee has quickly swung into action with an appeal linked to the Premier's Flood Relief Appeal. If you would like to contribute, please click on the handmade ark appeal button above, where you will find all the necessary details. Please spread the word among your friends, as every little helps. I have some items in my Etsy shop, with all proceeds going to the appeal.
