I was planning on blogging yesterday but Tom was working at home because of the earthquake so I hope you didn’t take that to mean we’d both been squashed.
I think we’ve been quite lucky here – while we certainly felt the big Sunday night shake and many of the aftershocks we’ve missed out on a lot of the smaller rattles that people in Wellington and Blenheim have had. That doesn’t mean I”m not just waiting for another earthquake though.
Nothing at our house broke and because we’ve secured our biggest bookshelves to the walls things just moved closer to the edge of shelves in a sinister fashion. We’ve got our earthquake kit sorted and thanks to a tip from someone in Christchurch, have been sleeping with shoes, a jacket and a torch each beside the bed.
This week I am unemployed – really between jobs but Tom loves to tell me I’m a bum. This bum is sewing, trying to get ahead so I’ve got new stock to list on my website even when I have one less day to make it in. I do wish though that I could clone myself to take photos and list things online.
And of course this morning I’m celebrating the arrival of the royal baby. Hoorah!
