I am afraid we have been rather diverted today by the dreadful earthquake in Christchurch. We have heard from one couple but not any news of our relations or other friends as yet. We have been rather glued to the telly. This is the Christchurch Cathedral which is the very heart of Christchurch. When I was there as a university student I actually played the organ a few times.
All we can hope is that the city and the people can recover somehow. The restaurant we went to in August which was devastated in September's earthquake, is apparently nearly ready to re-open but who knows now....
Ian is still milking his birthday and we are off to dinner with Val and Jim tonight.
