My sister who lives with her sons - my gorgeous nephews - near Brisbane, Australia sent me this pic of the flooding near her home, taken 11 Jan at 6.30 am.
By 4.55 pm they were being evacuated by the authorities. They're all ok (PHEW!) and are staying with friends but worried about the home they've left.
Charlie says: So long as they're safe.
Thursday means the weekend is getter closer!
