General chatter

A sad rumble

As I’m sure many people are, I am feeling very sad today after watching the coverage of the Christchurch earthquake.  The footage this afternoon was terrifying – live coverage of a disaster like this is gut-renching.  I don’t know about anyone else, but the sense of urgency transfers painfully. I’ve got to admit to a degree of disaster fatigue, and I switched the news off after awhile, if for no other reason than to give the kids a break from it.

I was of course very aware of how fortunate I was to be able to turn it off for a while, something that’s not possible for those stuck in the middle of the chaos and distress.

I hope that all your family and friends are safe.  For what it’s worth, all my best thoughts are heading their way.

If anyone would like to suggest ways in which we can help please feel free to add a comment to this post. Any suggestions would be great.

I’m a little bit bookish…

What’s it all about?

It’s about that book you like, that thing you’re into, that film you saw…

It’s my intention to go on a bit, putting mildly interesting words out there, and hopefully more often than not sharing beautiful items, clever little readings and general comments on all things a little bit bookish.

I also have a few nerdy tendencies, so I might well stray from time to time into geek territory – please feel free to pull me up if  I go off on too much of a tangent.

Go ahead and share your thoughts on my thoughts, and on the bits and pieces I come across.  Feel free to let us know if you come across anything delightful.

I am very much looking forward to sharing and reading.  I think I’m gonna love my brand new blog and I hope you do too.

Cheers to you, chat soon…Mandi J
