School Holidays Day 1

Cleaning the shed. It's been everyone's room of requirement for the last 6 years. It was time to take it back and get some order in there. It's nice to have a space to send kids out to when they get too rowdy inside or an extra sleep-out for visitors. Sister has been asking me for a while to sort it out and I've been asking Brother 3 for a while to get his stuff out. Tyler also threw bags of clothes through the door back in November and forgot about them during her US tour. I burned three bags of clothes today. Did not take the time to look through them, she said burn them and I devoted my morning to doing so.

Not everyone will appreciate that I still have this blanket. If I ever had a 'blankie' in my life, this was probably it because it was Aunty Marva's. As shabby as it is now, it's still useable. A testament to the fact that she kept her belongings immaculate. I've adapted the same concept and so has the child. Tyler has not. She is a lost cause.

After photo .. because I didn't take a before one. Tyler and Shaily think they're moving in to the shed next year sometime. I think they can share a bed and confine their mess to one room.

And just when you thought this wasn't a rugby post (Mitchy and Furns - bite me) ..
She would fit in perfectly.
Thank you Countdown for your patriotism.

iMessage with Pony-Horse.

An Uruguay rugby player proposed to his girlfriend from the field after their huge loss against Australia today. That's exactly how I wanted Richie McCaw to propose to me! Except ... he would stop a scrum and propose by yelling out 'crouch, touch, pause, engage!' .. but then the IRB changed it all to 'Crouch, bind, set' and ruined everything.
The End.

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!
