Middle of the week. End of Oct.

Boycotting Halloween. Something I consumed yesterday made me sick today and I've decided I'll still be sick tomorrow. Sent the child to Kohanga today and had to pick her up early because I had a Wacky Wednesday at 2pm, which I knew would go beyond 3pm (finishing time).

My parents flew out to Auckland today. I was sad when I had to walk back to the car and come home to no Parentals in The Bay .. just like my sister will be sad on Friday when they leave her to come back here. 

The Air NZ European Tour begins on Saturday when the All Blacks play Japan. Over the month they'll take on France, England and Ireland too as a part of the tour. Before the final Bledisloe Cup game, the following video was released.

"The All Blacks team are a clone army in a bid for galactic dominance" - Boba Fett said so himself. Anything endorsed by a Star Wars character is gospel, everyone knows that.
The video brings me all kinds of emotions.
I love rugby more than I love albacore sushi.

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!
