I've just rekindled a friendship with someone I'd lost touch with when she went home to Christ Church. My kids have a friend who is from there too. So I really am hoping that they are all safe. It's a horrific situation and my heart goes out to all the people there :( :hugish:

I'm so relieved - I've had an email from my friend in Christ Church :cheers: It seems that the North West of the city haven't been too badly affected, but her friend was killed in the CTV building :( I'm guessing that no one will have been untouched by what has happened.

I'm super lucky because all of my family and friends are ok :) They have no water at the moment but on the scale of things that's pretty good. Some of my friends have lost people though, utterly depressing.
I don't think I'll stop worrying until my family are out of Christchurch... Have a friend who became homeless coming to stay with me in a few days so that will be good :)
