One year ago at 12.51pm Christchurch was hit by a 6.3 earthquake.
It was a frightening day, we were shaken badly here in Timaru too.
Paul and I grow up in Christchurch and most of our family still live there.
When finally were able to hear from them all, they were ok, it was a big relief.
My Dad celebrated his 70th birthday last year today.
When I was on the phone with him, we learnt that he was born in the middle of a air raid.
His mother was rushed to the hospital while the rest of his family went into the shelter.
It was story that none of us girls (my 2 sisters or me) had heard before, which we might not have heard if there hadn't been the earthquake.
Kia Kaha Christchurch!
I will be back tomorrow to show you Dads card and gift that I have made him.
