League Semi-Finals.

Our little podunk community rugby league team made the finals.

Have to give a shout out to brother 3 who manned the ship this season as Captain.

It's the worst field to take photos at because of a bank that everyone stands on to see all. Next weeks game will be against the Bay Bulldogs, who they beat a few weeks ago. Up a grade next season?

Did not take photos of the family (most of them) dinner at the Parental's tonight. Long line up of early morning rugby tonight. It will be a Zombie sabbath, but what I am appreciative of is the school holidays right now and not having to help my Mum at the school on Monday.

Went to a meeting this morning re: the marae. There were points during the meeting where I felt discouraged and thought to myself, I should relinquish my affiliation so I don't have to deal with this ... but there will always be opposition and for the sake of the people who are trying to progress you have to just roll with the punches, however, if they're too hard and hostile - I'll claim I'm European.

PS. Countdown to the StrongArm's arrival. Hub's says 3-more sleeps.

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!
