That Day

There have been lots of memories in Christchurch this week, as we remember the 2011 Christchurch Earthquake a year go.

I attended the memorial service on Wednesday.  It was a different mood from the one last year, more reflective  than intensely emotional.  I've not felt "ready" to watch the movie "When A City Falls" which was screened on TV3 - but I have recorded it to watch later when I am "ready".  I would recommend everyone outside of Christchurch see this too.

I've been feeling tired again this week.  It feels like a physical tiredness, but I do wonder whether the emotional energy is contributing too.  I've been taking things quietly and I'll catch up with you all again next week.


  1. How moving - you did well - must have been truly terrifying for you. I am so glad you are here to tell us about it.

  2. I agree with all you've said. I can't watch anything on TV and I can't sleep.... this anniversary has been hard. I hope you are ok xxx

  3. Thank you Fi and Deb. I'm okay, just finding this week tiring. Hugs to you guys too.
