Hello friends

I got up yesterday morning with the intention of typing a blog post,
heard the news of the terrible fire in London and stopped typing.
Blogging paled into insignificance.
My heart ached for those people, family and pets caught up in such a tragedy.
Fire terrifies me (as I'm sure it does others),
I cannot and honestly do not want to imagine what those people 
went through and what they suffered and will continue to suffer 
while rebuilding their lives.

I do not want to be maudlin and I rarely stick my head above the parapet and 
voice an opinion but doesn't it throw things into perspective?
I am rich today, rich beyond words because I have a roof over my
head and my family and pets are safe.
I wanted to shout this from the rooftops yesterday
when I heard petty trivialities in the supermarket and read similar online...

So that's my words today with just a little crafty offering...

Hug those closest today.

Take care friends, it is Friday Die Day tomorrow and that boy of 
mine has been working on a video...


  1. Yes Christine it's heartbreaking. I lived in a terraced row years ago and the family opposite lost everything in a fire including two children. Dad had hoarded coal under the stairs which caught and cut ff their means of escape. The house was gutted and I can still see it now. No-one deserves what has happened to those poor people.x

  2. It's stunned us all Christine and watching it on tv had me in tears for those families. Gorgeous card and lovely sentiment xx hazel

  5. Hi Christine,
    It was absolutely horrific yesterday and my heart goes out to all the victims and families involved, your words are so true. It does put things into perspective, when I look around at my possessions and realise my family are my greatest assets.
