Shaky Afternoon

Here's my little boy zonked out after the magnitude 5.8 earthquake this afternoon. I think it's the shock that does it because he had the same reaction to the big one in Feb.

He was rudely awoken by the magnitude 6.0 about half an hour after he'd fallen asleep. I have never seen him move so fast. One minute he was fast asleep the next he was in my arms and clinging to me for dear life.

Much love to the people of Christchurch x

Oh poor Riley! Hope he's ok tonight. We were all at home when they struck. Rascal seemed okay and has gone down to sleep no problem so far. We'll see if she wakes in the night though. Wee Man is too young to be bothered by them at all and has kept us laughing and smiling all day.
Hugs to you all.

Hope you guys stay safe...poor little thing still I guess it is better that he rests than be hysterical. xx Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Thinking of you and hoping that there are NO tremors tomorrow.

Have a wonderful Christmas and I hope Riley's enthusiasm brings you a welcome relief from the stress.
