Hello Fellow Flaunters,
It really has been a week here! On Sunday Shaya was evacuated from the shop and Maggie was evacuated from her home! It is one thing to watch all of Mother Natures moods on TV, but to have it happen so close, its frightening. Our thoughts are with everyone who has been affected by the fires and know that you can pop in and have a cuppa and a chat. Oh by the way they let Maggie return to her house on Tuesday, which was a good thing cause her clothes were beginning to stink!!!
Next weekend (19th February) is our Extreme weekend and 3rd birthday ! We will be doing some fundraising over that weekend to help with the bushfires appeal, so please keep an eye on your emails for more information next week.
On a personal not I (Maureen) would like to thank everyone who has sent the condolences and positive energy to myself and my family following the passing of my brother in law. It has been a difficult few weeks, but now the healing begins.
