My mum decided, just before 4, that we should quickly take our walk
and then visit my cousins.
Mum usually has a cup of tea and I have a lovely run and play with Molly!
Half way down the road there was a rumbling and shaking movement.
The roof of a nearby house was clattering, the earth was jolting and
the power lines were swaying.
Mum stood still and listened and waited.
Then it was over.
After a while my big brother( my mum’s son) came
looking for us because the cell phones were not working!
We are all save and sound!
