Now living in Ballarat

Following the move from our home in Geelong we spent 2 weeks living in a Caravan Park owned by Robin's cousin. Two weeks ago we moved into a rented house in Ballarat borrowing enough furniture etc to survive until we find a permanent address. The house is only 2 blocks from my parents which is handy for the laundry.
The caravan park at which we spent 2 weeks was evacuated on Sunday last due to a fire which burnt 5 houses at the back and the golf club house , the caravan park was saved.
We are in the process of purchasing the leasehold on a motel in the Gippsland area of Victoria not far from the fires ravaging that area.
The whole state of Victoria and Australia are in shock re what has happened with the loss of life and property following the horrific fires on Sunday.
Have been able to almost finish beading 2 ring cushions for my step daughters who are both to be married late in March on the beach in Queensland. One features a star fish, the other a sea horse. With the cooler weather this week it's my intention to finish them and start on the dress for Robin's 7 week old grand daughter to wear at the wedding. Also my intention to make some more ATC's.
