    It woke me up. Was nothing liked the one I experienced in the black country a few years back but the house definately moved. Asked hubby this morning if he felt the house move, think he thought I had been on something LOL

    Shook me out of bed felt like a big bomb blast was weird didnt know what it was until i came to work, weird feeling :biggrin:

     

    LOL even though we missed the last one coz we were away on holiday, OH knew straight away what this one was - if the shakng hadn't woken me, I'm sure the fact he sat bolt upright and said "S**T, That was an earthquake" would have done the trick!!

    Epicentre was Blackwood

     

    We're just down the road from there and slept right through it - thought it was in Upper Sturt?
