I just felt my first real Californian earth quake. It was a mere 4.4 but the strongest one that I have ever felt in my life. I think I had better go check on my 48 hour kit and make sure everything is where it should be.
Here are a few facts about me: I am married, I have 3 lovely boys and 1 girl: Evan (eight), Harry (six), Daniel (three) and Lily; I love reading (especially science fiction novels but I do have a wide range of reading interests); I dabble in many different crafts (right now I am into knitting) and I don't floss my teeth every day like I should. My eldest son has a complex heart defect and that has changed my life in so many ways (mostly good).
