Today has been a bit calmer. Some clouds and rain have rolled in again, and we are expecting it to be a bit wilder later in the day. The earthquakes have lessened a bit both in magnitude and frequency. Mum doesn't find it hard to sleep - me neither!!
Our day was somewhat disrupted as there are a team in the upstairs flat installing new carpet. We don't get any yet as there is some building work to be done on our flat. They only have two small rooms to be done up there so we don't expect it to take too long. Those boys are banging away upstairs, so mum is not exactly getting a restful time before she heads to work again.
This lovely picture is from Stuff of the Australian ship the HMAS Darwin on the way to the Kaikoura coast. Our navy was having celebrations this weekend in Auckland and British, Canandian, Australian, Singapore and American forces have redirected to help with relief efforts of taking tourists away from the area, and helping to bring in supplies for the locals and to help with getting the area sorted out. Awesome and we thank you all.
