Voodoo #earthquake :-(

Almost certainly not a subject for joking about, hundreds have been killed just south of the capital Port-au-Prince. Although when I came in half way through the news report and heard about the basic houses huddled together shanty town style I thought it was Folkestone that had had another earthquake. No I didn't.

The boy slept right through again last night, though he has another cold... something woke us at 6.20 though, an alarm going off somewhere. Didn't sound like a car alarm, my first thought was it's the "someoene's stealing the boy" alarm that goes under his cot, so I ran in there. Obviously didn't think he'd got out of the cot, but... Luckily I did not wake the little snoring boy. Might have been a smoke alarm upstairs or next door I suppose. Did not notice any of the flats being burned out this morning, but perhaps it was obscured by all this snow!
