Past 5 days.

Our PA babies are faring well.
Indy-G is 6 months.

Our Stiddy boy is almost 7 months.

Avis rules the roost at 20 months.

I started making a skirt at the beginning of the week using fabric I found at an op-shop that cost 70 cents. I had a general idea of the kind of dress I wanted to make, but it was too complicated for a first timer when I did a mock up using paper towels. I opted with the skirt part of it instead and even that had me rethinking stuff. I needed a gathering foot for the tiers. Didn't know what a gathering foot was so I figured out how to do it without one. I tried to do it the half-assed way, but decided against it and went back to my sewing roots (when I was 10 at Intermediate) and pinned, tacked then sewed.
Up close it's pretty tragic, but if you stand about 20 feet away, it's fantastic.
She loves it and wore it to church today and it didn't fall off.



Date night with the ladies of the house Livian.

Sinned and watched The All Blacks game during the last hour of church. Bishop was surprised I was even at church today. It's nice to know that he knows my religious priorities are, at times, not on fleek. You can't repent for not watching a live ABs game.
The ABs owned Argentina.

Week one of the school holidays commence tomorrow, but here's something cute.

Happy October Internets!

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!
