We are all fine here. I was in hospital after surgery, 3 floors up un a
modern building designed to move in a earth quake.....I seriously don't
recommend that to ANYONE! I had a back op. And was stuck in my bed whilst it
bounced of the front and back walls of my room! Fortunately the TV which I
thought was about to land on my legs, got caught by its cables and missed my
bed (and my legs) !

But I have to say, as soon as I heard and then saw the cracking in the
corner of my room, any pain I had was gone and I was outta there !...then my
back hurt again L  We eventually got evacuated to the newest building the
hospital had but that was not so reassuring as the floor in the main part of
the building had slumped down on and angle !! The rest of the building was
ok. But man, I wasn't sacred in the 7.1, But I was f-ing scared this time !
I was surprised when I got home which is about 5 mins up the road, to find
no new damage to our house ! It was a mess with stuff everywhere, but its
quite surreal looking at TV (as we have power now) and seeing all the
destruction and going out our front gate to see it the same as it was last
week....very weird.

HI all, 

It is with great concern that we wait to hear of the wellbeing of our
friends and colleagues in Christchurch. 

I know that John Bird and family are OK, albeit sleeping in the car and on
friends couches. 

When convenient any news would be welcomed. 

And of course our love and concern is there for you all. 

kind regards
