Hello........... Today I was going to write a catch up post, but the title has been change a bit last minute as last night we had a bit of a Earthquake here at the Summerhouse.
Nothing too serious but enough to wake us all at 2.52am and for sure enough to set social media and the local TV and radio a flutter. At 4.2 on the scale here in the UK it's news worthy and something that doesn't happen too often, although in this part of Kent we do have occasional tremors. Here other than a disturbed nights sleep all is well, I was woken up by the bed shaking and the sound of the mirror on the dressing table rattling, where this morning I found one glass bottle toppled over.
Someone from the British Geological Survey said this morning "Today's 4.2 magnitude Ramsgate earthquake is approx 260,000 times smaller than the 7.8 Nepal Quake event."
They are now saying the centre of the quake was off Sandwich Bay which is a bout 5 miles from here.
My heart goes out to the people of Nepal and I guess this was a little reminder to be grateful that we live in a corner of the world that is much more stable where a small tremor is the most we have to contend with.
So back to our usual programming, this week I've mostly been stuck in bed, things are still not too good but fingers crossed are starting to ease a bit. This is the view I can see from the bedroom window, not too bad at all, with lovely blossom to look at.
There has been good post too, with these lovely handcrafted brooches arriving with some belated birthday cheer.
I've been slowly writing some thank you cards, one a day, but I'll get there.
I've also been pondering this little make, I started at the end of last year, the plan was to make a baby blanket, but as the squares grew I decided it was just a little bit too girlie, for the baby boy that was on the way. So I put it to one side and made
my Cosy Baby blanket instead. So now I'm wondering what to do with the squares, which are made with lovely Italian Merino yarn, just too yummy, I'm wondering about turning it into a lap blanket for the wheelchair but I'm open to any ideas?
I've also been indulging in a spot of Telly Box watching, I used to love the Gilmore Girls and used some of my birthday money to get the complete set on DVD. The perfect TV for resting up in bed.
Yesterday afternoon I made it out into the Summerhouse garden for the first time in a week, so I took my camera with me, so much has started blooming over the past week, Summer sure is on the way, it wiped me out and it wasn't long before I was back in bed but it was well worth the trip for the pics and the fresh air.
Well that about sums it up, life from under the donna, hopefully sometime soon I'll get back down to the Summerhouse, have a lovely weekend everyone.
