Houston....we have lift off!


Yay...I am back and have turned on everything that uses power over the past 24 hours!!!!
It's a bit scary that we are so dependent on electricity. It was a lesson on how life used to be before we could stay up till midnight and still be sourrounded by light.
I am thrilled that Maitland missed being flooded - but there are many more that need our prayers and help. Please offer assistance if you can - I think it really helps if we act like a community and lend a hand to those more unfortunate. If any of you need anything, even a hand to help clean up call me!
We lost a fridge, cracked a side window, a mobile phone died and water damage in the garage, relatively little.
Jen, I feel for you baby, I would be having a nervous breakdown if my house got water logged, but I guess you just get in and do what you have to!

Do you need to borrow a fridge for a while? We have a spare in the garage I think. Or Lisa has one for sale.

Just thinking....

Thanks Kristy, Insurance is stuffing us around - we cannot do anything until they come out and check the fridge ( which could be days ).We are thinking of just going out and getting a second hander....if we need one we will let you know thank you!!!!!If the captain could have a talk to us about whether ths fridge can be fixed that would be great.Renata
