we had a 5.2 quake here today. I'm so over this.
I was visiting a friend who lives at the beach where I used to live when it happened. Silvi just froze in the midst of exploring my friend's jewellry box. We instantly got worried about tsunamis but then we all got very casual. Kind of funny.
And this was after firefighting helicopters flying over our house from 1am this morning fighting a scrub fire on the ridge line above our wee village.
I got an hilarious text from DH saying "do you think we would get two insurance payouts if our house falls down in an earthquake and then is consumed by a fire?
I've spent the entire week chasing around the Earthquake Commission, the insurers and the council regarding our property cos they all disagree about whether our home will be repaired or demolished. And possibly rebuilt.
This is a CRAZY time to be parenting a toddler.
Just crazy.
