Shaky Quake Alarm Clock

This morning mum got woken up by a slightly big shaky earthquake that shook this part of NZ.  Mum jumped out of bed and grabbed her dressing gown just in case she needed rescuing.  Luckily it was just the ground and house shaking, nothing fell down and we are all safe. I was out in the garden hanging onto the picnic table.  In fact there seemed to have been no damage and no injuries - so it's all good.  A few more aftershocks today as well.

Oh and LURGY - that must be a kiwi term for germs or bugs.  Mums are getting better.  All of your well wishes are working.

  2. You don't need any more earthquakes there. I am glad that there wasn't any damage, though it must have been frightening for all concerned. I hope your weekend is a quiet - and still - one.

  5. We, too, haven't felt an earthquake and hope we never do. There ARE tremors occasionally in the region, but again, we've never noticed. Paws crossed you both stay safe.

  8. Poppy next time your earth has the shakes, best to get in your travel box so mum can pick you up and run (if needed). I would hate for anything to happen to you dear.
