Why do we torture ourselves every holidays?

Ever unblocked a toilet drain with a pregnant chick and a hose?
May you never have to unblock a toilet drain with a pregnant chick and a hose.

I despise teenagers who think they're more adult than they really are, who hide out of view from the powers-that-be just so they can secretly sit like they're married .. as such.

At Pandora park. We were there for much longer than I enjoyed.

Mum Rome said.
Shut it Rome!
Mum Jeston's doing.
Stop it Jeston!
Mum Ness called me.
Shut it Ness!
Mum Jeston said.
Shut it Jeston
Mum I want to go home.
Shut the hell up everyone.

Lunch time. Not all ours. We had 4 boxes, but the lady next to us assumed they were all ours and suggested we 'take our boxes with us'.
She can shut up too.

Not hot enough for this, but they did it anyway.

We're celebrating when school begins. One more week Mitchy. 
One. More. Week.
Best part of today was seeing this in the Education Gazette. She's like a home schooling celebrity.

More confirmation that this home schooling stuff is a good thing.

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!
