Operation Tuesday lunch out yesterday failed when my Mum decided she wanted to join us. The fail part was that it was her night to feed the missionaries, she had work at 3pm and she was in a Simon Cowell mood and didn't have the time to do a Tuesday lunch out. I warned her before we left that she shouldn't come, but Super Gran Kia demanded she come.

It only took her an hour to regret coming. What was supposed to be lunch at Clive's Mexican restaurat Fajitas, turned into a trip to The Station in Napier because Fajita's was closed (what the hell Fajitas!?).

She was painful and 3 hours later we were all stressed out simply because she came.

That was yesterday.
Today Hubba shared her appreciation for home.
"I love our house. Nan's house doesn't have a fire like our house. Uncle Jeston's house you have to sit on the floor. Aunty Nessa's house is too loud (it's not the house, it's the occupants) and Mum Mitchy's house doesn't have a rewards jar with lollies in".

I love my house too.
So does Shai and Ty.

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!
