Keep Calm and Carry On.

In true 'Keep calm and carry on' fashion, I am pleased to say that The Press Christchurch Writers Festival will continue this week despite the huge earthquake in Christchurch on Saturday morning. Please come if you are able - it will need your support and we all need cheering up.

And it was huge. I know because I was there. I am composing a post about it, but it may take a few days. In the meantime I leave you with a picture of our favourite chair, which we bought from one of our favourite shops in Christchurch, The Painted Room. Which unfortunately now looks like this. Get well soon, Painted Room and all those other places and people badly affected.

Glad you're alright.

Terrific that the festival's going ahead - proper guts.

What's the support like down there?

Best recovery wishes to everyone.

I think I need one of those chairs.

Been thinking about you and wondering how you fared in the quake!

It's sad the festival organisers have now had to cancel the event, but I'm kind of relieved as I was a bit nervous about coming up.
