Last night was the second time in as many months that I have been on the commute to/from the day job, checking my Twitter feed when I have found out about a major earthquake in a place of the world where I have family.
Just like the last time, everyone we know and love has been declared safe.
Donations can be made to your local Red Cross – http://redcross.org.au
Not your usual day trip to the park!
I always look forward to Fair Day. It’s so much fun! There’s so much to see and do, and so many friends to catch up with.
It’s difficult to convey even in photos, just how many thousands of people participate, how diverse the crowd is, and how much love is shared in Victoria Park on Fair Day.
Families of all types are present and welcomed.
I look forward to it every year! (And the after sun balm is on ice for when I get home!)
Not my best day photographically, but I made a bad choice early as to which lens I was going to use for the day. *shrugs* I worked with it 🙂
Come on down! 😀
I’ll be sending you an email shortly in order to get your address, and these cute wee Monsters will be winging there way towards you and your family!
I’d like to thank everyone for participating, not just in my raffle, but in all the Auctions and Raffles that went on all over crafty blog land in the last couple of weeks to raise money for the flood victims. It really helps restore ones faith in humanity.
There are good people out there.
*loves you all*
The Raffle to raise money for the QLD flood relief is still going but ends Monday, 24th, at 9am. If you have yet to enter just head to this post and follow the directions. The clean up efforts are just monumental, and every little bit helps.
Don’t forget if my wee Monsters aren’t to your liking there are many other crafty blogs involved who are making all different kinds of things to help with the Relief effort.
So far the combined efforts of all the blogs has raised over $45,000! Go Team Crafty Blogs! 😀
You know what I like about socks? They travel anywhere.
These ones remind me of vibrant hibiscus flowers and thus seem very tropical to me. I feel like I should have my knitting in one hand and a large layered fruity cocktail in the other.
Don’t forget to enter the Raffle for the Monsters!
