A lil bit heart-broken today.

I'm not a dog person. I actually think dogs are gross, but Papa Greg's bulldog Winston grew on us all even though we didn't admit it. The idiot dog would chase our cars up the drive way snapping at our tyres. Somehow he'd always avoid getting run over.

The short version, Tyler ran him over on Saturday when he appeared out of no where and tried to get at her tyres.

After being diagnosed a broken back, Winston was put down today.

Gonna miss that stupid dog, but for the life of all the is good and healthy, no one buy Papa Greg a new animal.

I actually have tears in my eyes over this. Found my Hubs in the car crying her little eyeballs out as her Papa digged Winny's grave.

RIP Winnyballs.

Winstons view from his grave. The kids were having a competition who could throw the rock into the cow poop first.

We'll all be laughing about this come Christmas, I'm sure of it.

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!
