After two weeks of unrelenting heat, humidity and fractured sleep, we were a bunch of zombies at my place.
(wonder if there is a collective noun for zombies?)
I wasn't confident enough to tackle anything tricky so instead I dug out my paper piecing WIP and did some sewing on that.
(thanks Gail for inspiring me to pick this up again)
Of course, for all our discomfort, we have not been under threat of bush fires or losing our home.
The remarkable men and women who fight tirelessly to protect life and limb are largely volunteers - the Rural Fire Services.
They aren't paid to risk their lives and yet they turn out every summer and do just that.
