Tower of Art Centre in Restoration
I told KB that we were having an earthquake of about 5 and I was close. It was 4.9 at 7.21 PM. Last night we woke up at 1.34 from a 4.7. After a quiet time it is full on again and rock around the clock. We had 2915 quakes since the big one and actually it hasn't been quiet but we had a lot of small ones lately and we mostly feel only the bigger ones.
The city is in repair but there are still a lot of buildings who are in the state they came in after the earthquake and waiting patiently till it is their turn to be fixed. The figures for unemployment are high at the moment but I don't think there will be any builders among them.
William is also busy repairing the cracks and ended up renewing the complete bathroom which was necessary. William being able to fix everything has saved us a lot of money. The money we didn't have in the first place. No you shouldn't come to NZ to become rich than you are in the wrong place. There are not enough people for a vibrant economy but that has many advantages as well.
Experiencing an earthquake puts you back with 2 feet on the (shaky) floor and makes you realise how quick your life can change and that you must enjoy your life as much as you can. That is one of the reasons I cut back on my hours at work and I am happy to get more space. I enjoyed my work very much but there are choices to make in life and they all have an up and a downside. I learned an awful lot this year but I can't keep up with he high level of action and grave for more time to do things at home like cleaning. Duh not. I can fill up the extra space of one day easily but having no commitments I can step back if I need and just go for a walk.
It is time to go to msn to check up with family so I wish you all a good week.
