This happened yesterday.

Three pink fillings.
The dental therapist told me herself .. chocolate is better than soft or hard lollies.
That's gospel if ever I heard it.

I really don't like Netball, but if someone had told me sooner how great indoor netball was, it would have made all the difference. I don't know what the competition is called, but a few cousins took the initiative to put a family team in and despite losing last night, it's been a success. Tyler & Shaily are on the court somewhere in there. I compare it's difference to rugby and league.
Netball is Union, indoor is League.
Yep .. great analogy.

Song kudos to Preston & Atalya.

What is netball? Is it like basketball, or like futball?

Similar to basketball.
Netball: Can't dribble the ball down court, once you have the ball you are allowed to step once before you have to pass it and the netball court has boundaries for certain players.
Netball was invented by a Canadian in America!
Next to rugby .. it's the next sport of preference in NZ apparently.

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!
