Auckland One.

Post from Monday:
Thunderstorms are rare in Hawkes Bay, but we caught a tasty one heading out of Bay View last night. It was like the Apocalypse. Never seen anything like it before.
Stopped in to see the Temple lights last night. Did all I could to hide myself from CCNZ Alumni I went to school with. Avoided eye contact. It does the trick.


Spent the day shop hopping .. everyone else shopped and I yelled at the kids.
Manukau mall.

Hubba got her ears pierced! The negotiation was almost a fail.



It was when the butterfly got stuck did she feel some pain, but now she looks cuter than before.

Bebiiiiin ... 3 months.

Laughs with Aunty.

Shai's thinks he looks at her the way he does because he thinks she's pretty. I think it's the yellow stains on her teeth that he can't look away from.

Dress Mart.

Surprised it was as empty as it was today given there's 8 days till christmas.

This one got dropped off at home because she wouldn't listen, and by that I mean, she almost got hit by a car for not listening.

Hubba and the apple sorbet.

Christmas dinner this evening with the StrongArms then to the airport to retrieve Brother.

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!
