The Disco.

Even as a grown up, my Mum still tells me off if I don't want to do something and it still scares me a little bit into cooperating. One of my older brothers still cries when he gets told off .. probably both of them. In saying this, I had no choice but to go to the disco lastnight.
Tashi decorated the rose bush.

The Parentals are rocking a real tree this year.

Disco/Christmas decorations.

My nephews got orders to carry the cane couch out from the flat.
"Come on you boys be men and carry it"
"We're not men, we're women!"
I concur.

Ngawi dancing with his Mum.

The disco set up.

Craig kids.

A few kids missing, but there were 20 of them.

Hubba dancing.

Disco balls are out. Papa Greg bought a laser light strobe for the occassion that synced with the beat of the music.

Last song of the night was for Uncle Larry, thanks to Coral the DJ.
A Thousand Years.

It was all over by 11pm.
I hate to see them all when they're old enough to go clubbing.
To Auckland manana.

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!
