The End of August.

Hub's is 6 on Friday. We're heading out of town for the weekend to spend it with Sister in Auckland and her brood. Mitchy's crew are coming too (how could I possibly leave Avi for a weekend?). There will be so many kids in the house that I should be dreading it, but sometimes getting out of town and spending it with ten kids is worth the headache. Sacrifices. Trying to plan a run away with sister and Mitchy one night we're there. Leave all the kids with Uncle Joel, Shaily and Ezroid.

My Mum hates us all for leaving her here and she said she won't forgive us unless we bring back pillows from the markets.

Received this photo last night of Avi with my Grandmother, Ma. They thought it was hilarious. I thought it was so not funny that I sent swear words to the two who thought the image hilarious. I lost sleep because I kept seeing my poor Avis crying, scared ...

People forget how scared Harry Potter was of dementors.
Not fricken funny at all.

The End.

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!
