On the airwaves again

Hi All
My Mum's funeral was Feb 2nd, which we chose so that the
temperatures were not as extreme as the previous week (46 degrees centigrade
on the Friday) when we arrived back in Melbourne.
Mum's funeral was a fitting tribute to her life, celebrated with lots of family and friends, tears and stories as well as laughter and memories.
My husband and I drove back to Sydney, through all the countryside that has
so tragically been burnt along with so many people and houses.
I feel a great sense of desolation, both with the death of my mother coupled
with the devastation in the state and locality of my birth.
I just cannot
get myself back into any much sewing or serging at the moment, but talking and writing is helping me get back on track.
