It's been quite a week.
A friend brought my family and I dinner last night, in sympathy with the flooding of our house on Tuesday! We so enjoyed her friendship and tasty kindness. At 9.45pm last night the same friend phoned me to say that her and her family had just been held up in their home by 4 armed men and had most of their significant possesions taken - cars, phones, electrical appliances, etc. A devastating experience!
And so I have been there a lot over the past hours.
This blog is all about creativity and design and clever ideas, restoration and recycling vintage, etc. I don't want it to be a blog of bad news! But this has been a devastating experience for my friend. They are all alive, and I guess are about to begin a long journey of restoration.
As always, at times like this, they are grateful for each other and for life and for friends who lend cars and cellphones, and offer you a place to stay for the night and send flowers and visit and pray.
