In brief

Just a quick note to let you know that we in Christchurch are OK.

Not too much to clean up in my house - broken stuff - meh, but I feel for Gill - who is swamped with silt and water again.

Lala just lost it yesterday (the straw that broke the camels back? - she has been amazingly calm throughout the last years turmoil) - I wasn't with her when the first earthquake struck and that was very very hard.  The cell phone networks overloaded immediately and I drove home from a crowed mall with a terrified Scottish mother-in-law like a women possessed (and why is it at these moments you get stuck behind a person determined to drive 40km - asthma attack anyone?, why yes I think I will...) anyho

The chill out music is on loud and earthquakes or no I am determined to get that holiday feeling.  After all, tomorrow is a celebration no matter what you believe.  Grab you're family and hug 'em close.

Hope all is well in you're world.  Truly.

  6. Hi Nin,
    I have been thinking of you since the other day when the latest earthquake happened and hoping that you are ok. I hope you managed to have a lovely Christmas. Stay safe.

  7. It was a pretty scary day, so unfair that they come all at once, at least the earth seems to have settled a little bit now! I've just moved home to New Zealand after living in Australia, so loving discovering other local lovelies! :) Hazel
