That despite the horrendous quakes we have had here today, everyone in our family is safe and the house has escaped without a scratch. Not a single piece of broken anything.  Andrew has been called into work so I don’t expect to see him for a few days. The kids and I are bunking down in the lounge. Not that it’s any safer, it just feels better being together.

    Glad you are all OK. Such tragic news for your city, I am so worried for my old friends who live in Christchurch. Let all of us in blog land know what we can do to help.

  4. Pleased to hear you are alright. We have been frantically texting, facebooking and emailling all our friends and family in Ch Ch and all are ok. $50 airfares with air nz for anyone wanting to escape ChCh. Happy to provide accomodation in Wellington.

    Watching the news with horror- so many people here have friends and relatives in NZ- everyone is shocked. All we can do from here is pray for all of you dealing with this- the whole country will be affected.

    Thanks for all the txt updates yesterday – I had my mum and my sister calling to ask how you all were and to offer places to stay should you change your mind.
    Figured AmboMan would be in demand, esp with Burnside High being a refugee centre.
    Tell me more about the upcoming road trip!!!
