Sorry to have vanished in more ways than one lately. Last you heard from me, we had moved and were just settling into our new home. Thursday, 6th of December 2007 at about 5.30pm, this happened.
Oh, that doesn’t look so bad now, does it?
Now, that’s more like it!
This is just plain scary, and I can hear the roof creaking. Can we get out of here?
We have been staying with friends, and are now just winding up moving, AGAIN, to a new house until the other one is repaired. It was two weeks ago tonight.
The boys and I were IN the house when it happened. Sam was sitting drawing on the chair in the final photo…. you can see all the broken glass around him. We got out without a scratch. I know that someone was looking after us. I actually watched it falling on us through the window, and really did spend the next 2 or 3 days not finishing sentences and generally trying to reboot my brain. It’s been a wild scary ride, with many moments of wishing that it never happened, but we’re moving on now. Things are just so busy with moving again, we haven’t had time to sit around and pity ourselves.
So that’s it. I’m inching my way back into some sort of normal routine. It’s crazy season at work, and the boys are on holidays, my mother has had a knee replacement last week and our life just continues on. I’ll try to catch up with everyone as soon as possible!
Go hug your loved ones, and a tree if you dare! 🙂
