First Basketball game

As much as I wanted to be the crazy person on the sideline yelling orders to the kids to play the game properly, I know she would have lost her mojo especially since some of the parents were sighing when their kids weren't following their orders. I stood there with my phone listening to the crazies around me. If your kid has to look up at you for your order every time they get the ball, they're never going to learn the sport. It's a situation of too many Chiefs. There is ONE coach. However ... everyone is a Chief in Ruralville and that crap can't be helped so it must be endured.

Hubs was excited, willing and ready. Jeston has taught her well.

Ed Sheeran needs to stop thinking out loud and think a little harder because he's obviously never heard of cataracts.

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!
