Driving baby girl to her dance class I could see the smoke from the bunyip fires.
All day on the telly and on the internet the stories of escaping fires and those that didnt have been haunting me.
Then to see the smoke and know that firefighters were still out there, still fighting and people were still involved with all the horror, felt so surreal.
Its so unreal how only a few kilometers away this was happening and I was doing something so normal.
Hopefully the fires will all be contained soon and everyone can then try to get back to some sort of normalcy in their lives.
My thoughts are with everyone, if we cant afford to donate money, in these hard times we can all donate blood. The blood bank is asking for lots.
I will be doing this as soon as possible.
Stay safe everyone,
Hug those you love and hold them close.
