There was lots I wanted to do today, but I stayed up till 6am and slept till 10 waking up every hour to, "Are you dead? I'm just checking!".

The All Blacks were defeated last night by South Africa in an epic game. Epic. This is ok .. because it's not Australia. That would be psychologically problematic for me. Great game though. The Boks fought to the very end and their coach is always on fire, I think even I wanted the win for him.

I'd like to go to bed early tonight, but I'm going to watch the NRL grand finale even if I have to do it half asleep with one eye open. It doesn't matter who wins this one, they both became favorites during the times I was forced to watch that ish and grew to like the sport.

A must have in every bathroom. It's the Aunty Debbie way.

The child has been scratched and bit up by the dog for the last couple of days and these goldie oldies definately do the trick to clear that ish up right quick. It's like an neosporin of oinments.

I'm glad it's working. I wish I could watch the games.

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!
