Less than 48 hours.

I was too depressed to blog. All these kids got the better of me.
Yesterday they were taken to a local pool for drowning a day of fun.

I forfeited dinner with them all last night and came home to dine instead. It's almost over. I'm going to sleep in tomorrow and get up and watch general conference from my trusty USB. After a week with demons, I need some religion.

All Blacks beat Tonga this morning. I was a little scared during the first 20, but the boys didn't disappoint.

HB League Finals today featured the undeafted home team, PA, against The Bay Bulldogs. By half time, the Bulldogs were leading .. but in similar fashion to this mornings union game, the boys pulled themselves together during half time and took them out in a 57-22 winner.
A selection of favorites from the day.

And let's face it.

The boy is a weirdy.

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!
