9-11 NZ Time.

Today marked 5 years since she left us.
I miss her lots, 0.99% less than I miss Larry.

The boys boxing group has a Skipathon going on right now in the middle of town. They're skipping till 4pm tomorrow. Good luck with that. We went down after having dinner together at the Parentals to support for an hour. A gold coin to the cause and skip to your hearts delight. With your gold coin you also get a bacon and something sandwich. Motivating bunch of peeps down there.

Lush getting her skip on.

Double dutch.

Even the devil skips.

And Aunty Tashi.

And just when you thought swooning was only for boys to do ...

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!
