Shake it up
There was an earthquake last night. Just after midnight Mr Nell and I woke up to a strange noise and the odd sensation of our bed shaking like a funfair ride. The pipes in the house were knocking and it took us a moment to realise what it was. Apparantly it scored 5.3 on the richter scale with the epicentre being fifty miles outside Sheffield, so bigger than our last quake but thankfully further away. The last one had an epicentre three miles from my house!
