You remember how Mum’s Christmas thing is putting up pictures of snow scenes? Weird, but she believes thinking cool on the scorching hot days helps. Well, not this year.
We’ve stopped school early to help Mum put out feed for our last few cattle. It takes most of the day. Mum looks really tired. Dad’s working in town to pay for feed. Most of our water is gone. Still we’re the lucky ones. Our friends up north lost their house in the bushfires last month. Wonder if anyone will say Merry Christmas this year? Keep warm.
