Cautiously Optimistic

The river peak was over 1 metre less than expected. We would have been under at 5.5m. I am cautiously optimistic. My friends and I have been doing our maths all morning based on photos of the complex's submerged underground carpark a few days ago. We can't get over the river as all the roads are under. I will try tomorrow. I might still have "the chair".  The boys might still have their lizards. Cross everything for me. Everything!

  8. A-M, everything is crossed for you and I am still amazed at your strength......you really have had to start again in life and all I can say is....I hope you have been writing it all down when your not writing it here, as there has to be a book for helping others at the end of all this.
    That's it, your new start will be a book deal coming your way.
    When you get back to your apartment there will be a very dry "the chair" with some very dry lizards perched on top. Fingers Crossed.

  23. You three are constantly in my thoughts as are Nigel and Brian. All yesterday I was praying that the water wouldn't rise above the top of their vivarium and that the seals would hold any water at bay - hoping for a miracle really. When you mentioned your little boy crying out in his sleep my heart was breaking. I'm hoping and praying that it will be good news. x

  26. Dear AM,
    As gorgous FF would say "Fingers and Toes".
    I am adding a truckload of good luck dust and many prayers that your 'things' and more importantly Nigel and Brian are there for your return.

  31. I've just put my fish in a tub with a battery air pump to take on a short break to Sydney & have been thinking of you, your boys & their lizards, i'm travelling like i'm fleeing when really i just don't trust our fish (which we new to owning) will cope 2 nights home alone). Hang in there lizards, oh & the chair, the piano, everything . . . sigh, love Posie

  35. Deeply shocked by the pictures on the news, and so glad you three are safe. Hoping so hard your place has been spared the worst. The unknowing must be awful, but be cautious as you venture out. Thoughts and prayers. xx
