It has been fairly depressing to see how dark it is getting in the mornings again, and on Sunday I saw a definite sign of the start of autumn... well it was March 1st, so what else can you expect!! In England, they are waiting for the lambing season.
Just as well we did take a break as this week has been hectic with a new class starting, and a pile of paper work. Yesterday, the funeral of my friend's mother was very emotional and I was feeling drained and tired when we headed out to have dinner with Phoebe and family.. but it was good to see them, even if there are plans for them to move to Auckland soon, the purpose of their trip up there last weekend...
I found this video today. it is a slideshow of pictures taken of the bushfires in Victoria, February 2009.They are still burning.... just unimaginable. There appears to be some fundraising associated with it - so if you watch it in You Tube, it might help them.
