Here we are

Tuesday was a very sad day for us.
The atlas ran all the way home from his work building in the city.
He found us under the table with quilts and a sick bucket (flip went into shock and started throwing up).
Dark days for the city and especially the shining lights we have lost.
We are going ahead with my sister’s wedding.
On Sunday I am taking my babies for a holiday to Wellington.
Our house has a lot less crockery but we are ok and we now have power and water. We have no Internet but the atlas has let me access to his iPhone.
Thanks to all of you who have sent us love .
If we can take something from this it is to treasure the things that matter. To communicate our love and affection for each other and not to be too attached to out stuff.
Sending everyone of you love, peace and light. X
