Welcome to the latest episode of my knitting/crafting podcast. I talk a bit about all the wild fires that are currently devastating the Portuguese country side. It’s absolutely terrible and the strong winds this past week haven’t helped the situation at all, if anything, they’ve only made matters worse. Unfortunately these wild fires have already cost several people their lives not to mention the amount of property (land and homes) that have been burnt, and people’s lives that have been disrupted. Every year it seems to get worse, I hope that the people who set these fires get caught and that justice gets done.
Now onto the shownotes for today:
