According to the iPhone

Life is suddenly busy. If work had better WiFi, I'd be blogging from there during my downtime. I have adjusted to daytime sleeping and night time working. The weekends are hell because I have to force myself to stay awake for Hubs during the day only to do it all over again come Sunday night. She has not adjusted, but Shaily coming home soon will be a huge help for her sanity. To add to that, the boy comes every other day and I have to be tired babysitter too. The Livians moving away, right now, is unappreciated because of the lack of helpful options!

The one thing I do like about the job, and there are many things I like about it, is that I get school holidays off. This is what I thought of all during the summer holidays. I needed a job that allowed me to be with Hubs during the holidays.

One night at sunset.

Video chats with Avi. You can still teach her bad habits with the distance between us.
"Ewwwww Avi"

Woke up one morning to a hand made garden and streamers on all doors off the hallway. This is what happens when you sleep and your child is awake.

Looking through Aunty Hub's undies drawer.

Mischief Boy.

.. and then these.

Hard to believe he'll be one next month!

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!
