I have started to receive quite a few emails enquiring if I am OK after the huge earthquake which hit Christchurch yesterday.
I really appreciate the concern, and yes I am fine thank you (I am in the North Island, and Christchurch is in the South Island).
My DH and I had just returned from an awesome few days away celebrating our wedding anniversary, when my SIL showed up and told us the bad news.
We do have some relatives in Christchurch who we have not yet been able to make contact with, and although it is worrying we do understand that there are communication problems and I am sure we will hear from them as soon as they are able.
If you want to do something to help (such as making a donation), I suggest you seek out a charity you trust. There is an article here about charities and scammers.
Thanks again for your concern, it is very touching.
