Caved and replaced my broken camera. For some reason I thought the xTi and the xSi were one in the same camera and hit buy now on Trade Me thinking all my batteries and grips would fit.
It was not so and it made me cringe because now I need more batteries for the new one and I have 8 for the broken one.

Took it out for a test drive.

Team Takitimu - Bridge Pa Basketball.

A Hubs action shot.

Let me tell you how much I hate going to basketball.
VERY much.
Enclosed spaces make me a little neurotic. People standing or sitting too close gives me anxiety. Add in the smell of feet and sweat, it's yuckotastic. It's why I can't do sports games and concerts. I can barely stand being in church sitting close to my family.
It makes me panic and sweat.

The End.

I used to play church basketball. I was asked to leave after fouling too many people and knocking a girls tooth out. Pssh.

Will Hubs still be playing when I visit or will the season be over?

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!
