Thank you to all of our lovely friends who commented and sent emails to check we were ok. We are all good here, safe and sound. We live quite some distance from Christchurch where the earthquake was, and although mum remembers waking in the night, she does not remember feeling it, although a lot of her friends said it woke them up.
It seems that there has been a lot of damage in Christchurch, but not too many injuries. We hope that everybuddy and their pets are safe, and there are not any more shakes.
Our country gets a lot of earthquakes, so a lot of our buildings are built with safety measures built in, and we try to be prepared. We are lucky though, and don't usually get ones as devastating as Saturdays one.
So thanks again for thinking of us - you're all awesome!!
