Childhood memories

I really struggled today with what I was going to write for today’s session of “Magical Monday” Mainly because I got food poisoning and then my partner got the flu. So I’ve been really trying to think of different posts to write about, its’s been a struggle I can tell you.

However, while I’ve been sick I received two DVD’s of “movies” that I used to watch obsessively as a child and have been watching them while I’ve been sick. One was the “ice-skating spectacular” with ice skating superstars Dean and Torvill  called “Fire and Ice”. I also purchased the Royal Ballet production of “Beatrix Potter”.

I used ot watch these two obsessively whenever I was at my Grandparents, as well as “The Red Shoes” (but I still have to purchase them).

So readers did you have any favourite movies or shows that you used to be obsessed with as a child? Maybe share something that you think no one has ever heard of before.

The Sampson Flat BushFires

Seeing as most of my viewers come from a completely different hemisphere, I just thought that they would like to know that here in the Southern Hemisphere it’s Summer. Since I live in the driest state, in the driest country in the world it’s a recipe for bushfire.

As I am writing this here in South Australia we are experiencing one of our worse bush fires since the 1984 Ash Wednesdays, which was just as devastating. 12 homes have been confirmed as lost, 20 more are feared destroyed and an entire kennel and cattery has been burnt to the ground, and unfortunately all of the cats were killed and a large majority of the dogs too. 13 CFS (Country Fire Services) volunteers have been taken to hospital with slight burns and smoke inhalation.

At the moment Firefighters are trying to fight the fires before Wednesday when the temperature is supposed to rise again. The Australian Business Insider has got some informative articles on the fires, including a lot of pictures showing the devastation and how large the fire has gotten.

Please watch the current updates on the CFS Facebook page.
