An update.

Heeeeey AviAviiii.
She's 5 months now and very yummy.

Le Frost.

Wanted to wear a skort and no thermal under her shirt on a minus 1 morning.

These ones are mostly for Sister, Nina and Livian ... who needs to get the same couch for his house and probably sister too. Got a new lounge this week because I needed one. I made one of my nieces sit on the floor because of potential toe jams.

Mitchy finally gave me the lamp after 4 years of asking.
Story behind it. They went to Harvey Norman one day and she can spot yellow clearance stickers from space with her eyes closed and hands tied behind her back. The lamp was originally $1000. She got it for $19. I pretty much wanted it the first time I saw it and now and again straight up asked for it. I even had one of her kids carry it to my car once. She finally budged this week.
Now I need a million dollars to buy Avi from her and our house will be complete! I'll swap you Tyler.
That table in front of it, Hub's red school desk, is being picked up tonight thanks to the Heneroids.

It's a hard thing changing your house around when you've been use to the same way for most of your life. In 37 years, the couch has never ever been on that wall before. Ever. But the thing was so huge it couldn't fit in the normal spot so I moved everything around. It works. It made my lounge bigger. I thought to move the TV, but it's fine there. I decided that people who visit me aren't allowed to watch TV. They visit to visit and so the TV stays in that awkward place.

I need to start carrying my camera around.
I'm downgrading my car this week. I got the Murano because I thought I was getting one or two more kids and needed the bigger vehicle. Now that I'm not, I have to downgrade to something more economical.

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!
