So Grateful

70/100 complete

4.35am 7.1 on the Richter scale a rough night – no power, no water.

We are safe. Our house is totally fine.

The baking tins are full.

The Heart cake for the baby shower I was SUPPOSED to go to will make a lovely dessert.

The Heart Cake

We had water in the freezer and we have plenty of bin liners for our lidded bucket so we can ‘go’ in the bin!

Thankful for boys who own torches that all had batteries, candles, matches.

My Little Men

Things have been very un-usual here  but we are together and we thank God for a quake at 4.35am when almost everyone is with their loved ones.


I am thankful for a 4 year-old with a sense of humour who set the table with chopsticks and a 1-year-old who tried to use them. For Daddy’s ipod.


Although you would think after 32 years I would master the art of outdoor peeing – what can I say I wasn’t desinged for ‘roughing it’!


May we all always have something to be grateful for.
