Was it a dream?
Took me a while to get to bed last night. The baby usually sleeps through till morning, but for some reason she woke at 12 wanting an extra feed. All fed and watered she got into bed with us and fell off into a deep sleep. I followed very soon after her, I was exhausted after a day of entertianing.
1.43AM omg bed shaking, whats going on.... I was physically wiggle woggled out of my bed. I looked over to see my hubby snoring sweetly and baby didnt stir. Im standing by the bed with my heart pounding, things rattling and clanking around me. After a short while silence fell. I run into the bedrooms of my 2 other children and they are both sleeping sweetly. My adrenaline is rushing and my eyes are WIDE open... nothing. silence. no neighbours lights switching on from the windows, no one in the streets... I must have been dreaming. was I?? I go into the lounge to check everything a last time before returning to my, now not shaking, bed. I turn to walk out and I see the water in my fish tank still sloshing from side to side. AHAAAAA... I wasnt dreaming... I was confused. I went bck to bed and fell to sleep after wondering if I was going crazy or not hehe,..
My husband was up before me this morning. I came out into the lounge with baby and the first thing I asked him was ""was there an earthquake last night""... Yes he says, it's here in the news paper. Apparently alot of people reported being shaken from their beds... YEY I wasn't going crazy.... It was a scary moment, that I have never experienced before. quakes are very rare in London.....
The report came out early this morning. Earthquake Kuwait-Saudi borders. 4.3 magnitude... Thank heaven everyone is alright and no serious fatalities. I pray for all the people who suffer serious earthquakes. This one was small, but VERY scary. May god keep everyone safe.... Lets hope this was a one off.. xx stay safe people xx
WHO FELT THE QUAKE. LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS PLEASE. XX
