Those in Egypt on Operation Mazurka must be feeling a little uncomfortable with the current political situation. Being part of a United Nations Peacekeeping Mission, as far as I know means they are un-armed for the most part. It has got to be more than a little un-nerving over there at the moment and I can only assume they have a heightened concern for their security at the moment. Let's hope all of our Aussies and the others in the Multi-national Peacekeeping Force in the Sinai are safe at the moment.
Similarly those in South Sudan do their thing every day with little, or no fanfare and certainly not much about them in the Aussie press to let the general public know what they are doing and the risks they are taking on our behalf.
Today I am very grateful to Kerry Jeffs who I had not met before today, although we had exchanged emails and chatted on the phone a couple of time. Kerry came on her day off and helped me pack up 15 quilts and get them to the Post Office. I didn't quite make the 18 because although I have a few quilts that require addresses and they have not come through in time. Never mind they will go next week. I could not have done it without Kerry though so big thanks Kerry!!!
and a delicious orange backing.
