Catch up 2

Today marks a week since the tragic events in Christchurch, today at 12.51pm we will have 2 minutes silence as a nation, if you are overseas you can check your local time here and maybe observe the 2 minutes with us.

I'm having a bit of a down day today, the shock of what has happened has finally hit me (you know - when your head has known for a week, but your subconscious suddenly catches up and you cant stop crying)

Holly is coming up for a few days, I can't wait to see her, I won't want her to leave, but all we can do is support her and Nick and be here for them.

As a family we have made donations to the usual agencies - but have decided to put most of our resources into this fantastic community organisation: The Rangiora express  they are cooking hot meals for the people of the eastern suburbs and flying them in by helicopter - they are awesome.

The Civil defence website continues to be a useful source of information.

and the Student volunteer army is beyond awesome - this is the future face of NZ? fantastic!

thank you for the comments and emails, our family is fine, but if you can find a way to help out - please do so, this is going to be a long haul for the people of Christchurch.

Jussi, I am in the US, in Florida, and am an avid fan of your patterns. Just want you to know you have been in my thoughts and prayers since the earthquake, and will continue to be. Linda
