Aint nothing gonna happen round here for a while

Turns out the EQC guys popped round to our house at some stage and left this note. I guess it's reasonably accurate, in that we don't think we have any major structural damage, but it's still kind of heartbreaking to realised that we won't get a full assessment until September. And that's if they run according to plan, which is highly unlikely.

There are stories going round about who these guys are - there used to be about 20 assessors, but after this quake they decided they needed a few more, so suddenly there are over 200. Rumour has it that they are mechanics, truck drivers and policemen. So not really that qualified to make judgment on structural soundness.

At least this gives this blog an increased lifespan! We were thinking that once we'd done the garden (which was going to be in the next 12 - 18 months) I'd have nothing to write about, but now it looks like we'll be working on this place for the next 3 - 4 years! Awesome!
