13 days till Term 4 starts.

It's hard to be professional when they're all your cousins. I thought doing their shoot at my house would make them more comfortable than in their studio and they were. They spent more time in the fridge than they did posing.

The start of their poster.
Yet to be textured, grained and some type of filter applied. I don't know their "professional" name, but their musical knowledge has improved ten fold since 2001 when Atalya was a newborn and they were rapping out of a bedroom.

We're on a 'eat better food for the next two weeks' buzz. Anything contraband to our meal plans are most likely Hubba's daycare lunches.

When you think you're going to head in to town to get a king size Black Forest chocolate, just have fruit. It's no substitute at all, but you make do.

Remember the foils Tyler got for her birthday from her Parentals? Worst thing ever. The things people do to look good. Looks like she has coconut husk on her head from one of those hanging basket garden thingys.

Chicken & bacon cheddar ranch wraps.

Sing it with me - yuuuuum!

Bye now.

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
