This post is overdue since we’ve been running around hunting houses and actually buying one! Anyway, more about that tomorrow.
I was very humbled, teary and so, so grateful for the lovely gesture and thoughts from a number of bloggers who shall have to be known as the blogging ninjas.
Since our fire, I’ve been adamant that I wouldn’t accept any monetary donations or such from the internet, and have been quite stubborn about it. Kind words and thoughts have always been what I sought.
I did accept a lovely offer for some second hand items I’d not gotten around to replacing just yet. I accepted, and gave my address. Little did I know that a thoughtful bunch of bloggers were hatching up a generous plan to donate some money towards a gift card at Myer/Coles!
Here’s the beautiful card it came in, with some thoughtful words inside, and the names of the bloggers who made a donation. So far, I’ve thanked two of the bloggers, letting them know of my intention to write a thank you post with a a link to everyone’s blog who did this wonderful thing. They were firmly against having their names mentioned, insisting on only being known as the ‘ninjas’! I will be emailling everyone personally. I’ve been so very busy, and have just contracted a nasty vomitting flu, so please don’t think I’m not grateful, I just like to do my thankyou’s justice.
I just want to give those of you who contributed, a very heartfelt and emphatic THANK YOU. My partner and I were overwhelmed and humbled by this act.
