There are many people out there who are still living in damaged homes, fighting to get insurance companies and EQC to do their jobs properly, and then there are others who've finished with insurance and are rebuilt or repaired. On that day 3 years ago I doubt if anyone expected the recovery would be this slow or this difficult. I'm really hoping that by the next anniversary that many more people will be in new or well repaired homes, that something is done about the out of control rents so that those people on lower incomes can actually afford to live and so that there are more homes available to rent.
We're doing pretty well, the house is pretty much done, the plastering leaves something to be desired but I don't particularly want to deal with the company that did the work again so I'll fix it later myself. The garage is all framed up and the roof trusses went up yesterday

In knitting news I've finished my red shawl ravelled over here. Really happy with it, despite my arms complaining. RSI is back again, but I don't think it's the knitting that's causing the issues; pretty sure it was Xbox so that's off the menu for a while.
