I've been sick since Wednesday with the flu. It gradually got worse and last night I thought I might die. I told my Mum this afternoon that at one point of the night I seriously thought I was going to be paralyzed and forever confined to a wheelchair. She laughed. I know it's a mixture fever, being emotional and physical pain that causes one to believe they're about to die while sick. Every time I get a flu shot this happens.

Thankful for Tyler who babysat unaware last night. Hubba even slept in Tyler's bed and one night without someone who rotates like a chopper all night was bliss. I had visitors all day yesterday some of which I don't recall having conversations with and others I'm certain I had conversations with but they didn't even visit.

School this week was short, but fulfilling.

Taking it easy for the rest of the weekend so I can be on top of my game again next week.
Hurricanes vs Highlanders kick off at 7.30. We're watching to spot Papa Greg who is at the game tonight.

You're welcome Nina!

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!
