Hell it only took two major earthquakes. I am a little ashamed it’s taken this long but I’ve taken the first step along with hundreds of other Kiwi’s. Which means the waiting list might be long and I may not even be required… but I hope I am and I’m hoping all those years of going bush and running with the dogs’ means I might be slightly higher in experience than others. Not that it’s a race but if you hadn’t noticed by now I’m a person who likes to do things. My dad was often involved in Search & Rescue and I really should have done this earlier.. better late than never I guess. We’ve already donated to the Red Cross and the SPCA but with all these reports coming through it just makes you itch to do more. A friend of ours is in Kapiti at the moment waiting for deployment to Christchurch and I have to confess when he texted me that, that I had a moment of pure envy, it’s crazy how much everyone just wants to HELP. Sitting in the other island watching the news reports feels downright useless at the moment. Even more frustrating is that I took three days leave this week so am at home today, tomorrow and Friday. It was my intention to finish my draft and I gave myself a kinda insane goal of 50 pages a day.. so far I’ve managed 10 *sigh*.. it’s very hard to keep away from the news sites and facebook etc.
Again my thoughts are with you Christchurch!! Take care and be safe everyone and thanks SO MUCH to all the lovely thoughts and comments from all you fellow bloggers. Every single one is appreciated.
And again if you have a spare dollar hit the donate button at the top left – cause every dollar counts!
