The Builder was peacefully sleeping. Just before 1 this morning, he woke up. Goodness, thought he. What on earth is Marlo doing to make the bed shake so?

He couldn't find Marlo to make him stop, but the bed stopped shaking and he went back to sleep.

We woke at 5:30 this morning to the news that there had been a magnitude 5 earthquake centred on Market Rasen 60 miles away at just before 1 this morning! It had been felt all over the place. Chimneys had toppled. Roofs had fallen. One person had to be taken to hospital but there have been no serious injuries.

Very exciting! But I don't know what on earth The Builder thought Marlo could have been doing to have cause quite such excitement and chaos.

Poor Marlo!

I slept through it all. I doubt that the four horsemen of the Apocalypse could wake me if I happened to be properly asleep when they came to call!
