Well the fires in NSW continue to burn, leaving the city choking with smoke- when I have had to be in the city I have had my asthma medication prior to leaving home and again before departing the train. The nearest fire to me is expected to burn for another month or more, but those of us who have lived in the area the longest know that it needs the burn off to protect us from more dangerous fires in the future. The biggest fire has grown by over 200,000 hectares in the last week and currently sits at 369,279 hectares, if you add all the smaller fires that have joined on to the main fire front the area burnt totals 575,782 hectares...
Enough about fires, onto my post. Today brings us to the last challenge of this year with my lovely team mates over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends, this fortnight we are sponsored by Polkadoodles who are offering a ￡6.75 voucher for use in their store to the lucky winner.

I managed to get almost all the cards in the post last week, unfortunately the cards for England and Scotland relatives needed to be placed inside a post bag and I didn't have the time or inclination to stand in line at the Post Office to get them, so we are off in the morning to get the last few out.
Thank you for looking in...
Have a wonderful week...
P.S. Many thanks to all my lovely blogging friends and visitors who take the time to stop by and leave me a comment, I truly appreciate them all!
