Winter Blues & Winter Heartwarmers

The past week or so has been pretty hectic in the Nelson family household. Four out of six of us (although really four out of five for the moment, because the oldest brother is in Japan) have been out of action with the most shocking flu - high temperatures, unbelievably achey joints, an unforgiving cough, no appetite - you know the drill, and we've kept pretty much to ourselves because this house is officially a danger zone :P Thankfully, I think we're all getting a bit better, although even just getting my breakfast this morning was exhausting...

While it's been pretty easy the last few days to ignore everything that's going on outside of the four walls of this house, I stumbled upon The First Home Project, and this video, this morning and man it's inspiring!! It's broken through the winter blues here, and has really impressed me with what some people are willing to do for others.

People taking initiative like this is so important because it addresses all sorts of issues arising from Australia's poor handling of refugees, as well as problems resulting from the housing crisis, and I've got my fingers crossed for them that they get the amount needed. I know that not everyone will be able to donate, but if you can, go for it! And if not, and this project is something that tugs at your heartstrings, like them on Facebook to show your support :)

Over and out.
