~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As everyone now around the globe knows about the Victorian fires, I myself and family are also in close range of these fires, be in Eltham a bushy area, I am very worried as 3 to 4 suburbs away are at these blazes, I have family in Yarra Glen, Coldstream, Healsville and Warragul, who have been fighting to save there homes through the night and or have left the area not knowing if there houses are still standing, Oh I have just had word while writing this on family in Healsville that they are safe and there houses are fine, and in Warragul. This has put a huge stress on my girls as they have been scared, I've tryed to keep them busy playing games an watch children's movies to keep there mind off with whats going on around them, trust me its been hard.




Mandii, honey I hope your cousins are ok in Kinglake and they got out fine. Hope your father and s/mother are well and saved there animals. This also is the fire that's heading down towards our way, please send a prayer that the wonderful fireman working there heart out and will stop this before it gets to Greensborough, Briar Hill, Eltham areas, this same fire could come up over the back from Yarra Glen to Eltham, I have to admit I've never been so scared in my Life knowing that all around us is an Inferno, right at this min I can here fire trucks alarms, so I'm not going to write much more as I like to keep listening to the radio in case we come under threat.



I also would like to send my heart and loving wishes and prayers to all the families that got caught in the blaze, and hope you all are safe and well, to the fire fighters for the exhausting battle to beat the inferno be careful.



MELBOURNE, VICTORIA PLEASE BE SAVE AND IF YOU NEED TO FIND OUT ABOUT ANY UPDATES ABOUT YOUR AREA AND OR VIEW IMAGES OF THIS MAJOR DEVASTATION GO TO www.abc.net.au/melbourne or http://www.cfa.vic.gov.au/



I keep you posted,



Hugs Kirstie.

Hi Kirstie, thanks so much for checking in on me hun, we are fine here in Olinda. Some moron tried to light a fire at Ferny Creek on Saturday during the scorcher but was put out quickly thank god. My husband is part of a CFA strike team that has been out twice to Bunyip fires and tonight out to Toolangi. Dont think I am going to sleep much tonight with worry but he is with a good team of exprienced CFA members so they know what they are doing.
keep safe, Alicia xx
