Two years ago today, I sat outside in the freezing cold, sipping coffee made on the barbeque while the world shook around me. My up ended daffodils were discarded to the green waste never to return. Last year my daffodils were admired from afar. I could look but not touch. The coffee however was made indoors and the shaking had reduced. This year the daffodils have returned to their rightful place on the table and I am reasonably confident they will stay there. I would however think twice before leaving anything valuable within spill distance though!
There have been 99 earthquakes in the last 30 days. None of which I have felt. We have endured in excess of 10,000 earthquakes in 2 years. The earthquakes have been the largest insured disaster in the world. These things take a long time to fix. My house is still broken.
So how am I going to mark such an anniversary? To start with I am going to drink that coffee and eat the banana cake. I am then going to go for a walk and help my youngest do his sisters paper round. It sounds boring doesn't it, but I prefer it that way, thank you very much!
