Yep - I usually get welcomed on to the bus by a smiley driver and then a cheery bye when I get off

Not at the moment. too much personal stuff going on at the moment, one of them finding out my grandad is ill so waiting to see how bad the scan results are. so we dont feel its the right time but hopefully systems go within the next few months. my wee brain just wouldnt be able to handle it all at the moment but i like to pop on here and see how everybodys getting on.

once we're ready to go you'll all be the first to know and i'll be bugging you all with my questions again

Rats. Sorry to read about the Grandad. These things are sent to try us all at some point or another.

Ah well. Time is on your side.

Thanks. Yeah we've had out fair share of bad luck recently but hopefully the good stuff will come soon! Could always be worse anyway so cant moan too much! Havent been sleeping well hence why im replying so early!

Yeah we have time, like people have already said.. The rebuild will take ages so there should always be plenty work. Fingers crossed we'll be out this year sometime anyway.

I forgot to say dave is now a dummy truck driver too lol, passed his class 1 lorry licence last week which should really help with jobs since the digger work is really drying up here

'twas a 3.9, 5km deep in the hills above Cracroft. We were out and about and felt nothing.
Snow on the mountains but no need for a coat in ChCh - fab

There was a 4.4 yesterday. From what I know, it's all steam ahead bar fraud, shoddy practice & any further large earthquakes.
