Flood Devastation...

The events that have unfolded in Queensland in the last 48hrs have been as devastating as they are unbelievable. In our worst natural disaster in history flood waters engulfs 75% of Queensland. My home town of Brisbane is currently heading towards river peaks that haven't been seen since the tragic 1974 floods.




i am deeply saddened and worried for many friends and family that will be directly affected with their homes being swamped with water. With Friends and family in Toowoomba, Ipswich, Goodna, Jindalee and CBD affected areas, my Grandparents house is currently underwater.



so i would ask that you all can keep in your thoughts and prayers all the people who have been affected by these devastating events.



I came across Toni's blog who is generously organising a flood relief appeal auctions with all money raised going directly to the Queensland Government Flood Relief Appeal.

I will be participating by holding an auction/raffle from my blog starting on Monday with money raised going to the appeal to help affected people after the flood waters recede. So be sure to check back here on the weekend for the Auction items and more details.

Thanks for stopping by
