I was going through the Trade Me pages the other day and it suddenly struck me--- How much was lost other than the obvious? The lives and beautiful old buildings, but also some of those wonderful ‘collectables” people had in their homes. I do hope people were able to go and retrieve them; those that won’t broken and lost.
Take our iconic Crown Lynn for example. People are actually saying that they are selling part-sets because they are downsizing or they lost part of the sets. Isn’t that sad. It just adds to the picture that is emerging about the ‘other losses’ from Christchurch.
I hope the people of Canterbury are able to restart their lives with their precious things around them. Some of those will have to be newer precious things.
All the best!
