What strikes me the most is that despite everything, everyone in the photo is smiling. The resilience of the human spirit! And the fact that you are still able to run your tanks is incredible! Thanks for sharing with us and Godspeed.

the pile grows...., this is the same pile in the above picture, you can see me at the end of the pile emptying a wheelbarrow. Still the only one living in our lane, it was funny an army reservist came to see me today and said you guys are the ones living here with the fish aren't you? :) made me smile i'll probably get the tag of crazy fishwife soon..... still waiting on water, drains and sewerage, might be days or weeks, not sure.

Have to say everyone in our our lane has pulled together. We have a few older residents, and having my firends and family come round and muck it in to clear out their gardens has been fantastic.

quake update: one week on, still no water, sewerage or drains at our place. Council really pissed me off yesterday after being told for a week that water etc would be coming they put water in our street but have now said no we aren't sorting out your lane, its a private lane go and get your own contractors to organise sewerage, water etc to your house. What really annoys me is we have several elderly ppl down our lane and they wouldn't put a portaloo near the end of the lane because it apparently isn't council land. You think they could of told this to us a week ago. :pullhair: :pullhair: :pullhair: :pullhair:

End of vent. Hope everyone else is ok. had another reasonable aftershock this morning 4.6.
