On Thursday we experienced a 4 point something earthquake whose epicentre was only 22 kms (10 miles) north of Tortola, which meant we got the loud bang, ominous rumbling and then lots of rattling and shaking. This also happenend to coincide with the day Tyler finally switched on the oven in the bakery, with our temporary water and our temporary electricity. As posted on Facebook: "
That wasn't an earthquake darling; just a mass, global, collective, happy cheer from your friends and family. " So that explains it then!
Dosn't he look pleased!
Sad to say we did have to switch the oven off again pretty quickly after the photo opportunity, as flames started leaping out the back and then it shut itself down. Sigh. Anyway, it obviously needs some tinkering after its long journey and an Engineer or two. This does not stop us however from pushing full steam ahead for a bakery opening in the first week of September.
The rest of the week was pretty uneventful. The kids got hold of my camera, and found all kinds of apps I never knew I had:
Not Dads oven
Baking with Kathy
Georgie's view of his younger brother
Gracie the Pirate
Princess Fussy aka Flora featuring Georgie's spelling
Apart from buggering around with my camera, the boys had another fun week. Yesterday they went to the salt pond behind Smugglers Cove to look for fiddler crabs. This is definetly not a place for girls. I stayed home and did the housework and then pinned lots of pictures of perfect, clean houses.
