fun and games

In which there are studs and rivets, all in the same day

I think everyone's pretty much over the earthquakes now. For a while I wasn't feeling them but in the last few days we've had a spate of them that have been noticeable, and the last three nights I've been woken by them - not enough to get out of bed and take cover, just enough to go "Are you awake? Good." ;-/

Thing is, broken sleep isn't just happening to me, it's happening to everyone. And even if like me you don't have a panic response every time the ground moves, the whole thing is a constant low-grade stress and it's making folks grumpy. People are getting sick and cranky and just enough with the bloody earthquakes already!

Right, now I'm off to dig out the hessian I've been saving because it might come in useful for something.

This evening, we get a rivet. I have it on good authority (hers) that she will be at Fidels. I plan to be at the front of the tacklehugging crew, and am prepared to fight for that position. And I don't even have armour yet!
