Well, what a crazy week to say the least! I was in the centre of CHCH skiving off with a few other teachers at a lovely Italian Cafe. Cafe Valentinos when the earthquake hit - here is a photo Cafe Valentinos It was shocking to say the least and the need to get to my kids slow and painful. But I am very lucky and my kids and family are all ok. My school - is not so good and thankfully we were shut for a paid union meeting! I am not sure when school will re-open how or when.
What has been amazing is all the support from so many people from so many places.
