Had enough of html coding.

I've been working on a website for the last 4 days. It's been such a headache I was glad to have finished it today. 

All the visitors I've had in the last few days have all come at the wrong time. Today was the worst of all 4 days. The Livian's arrived at 8.15am to avoid a visit. They stayed all day. The Farmers came twice before 3pm. The captain of the website came to do a quick draft look through. My mother came twice to ask if I'd finished the website yet because she hadn't seen me in 4 days. I had to go to work at the school and avoid eye contact with the Principal so she didn't make conversation with me. Tyler came home and two of her friends visited and I had to stop and greet and make small talk with them and just as I was about to sit down and eat dinner .. Papa Greg arrived at the same time as the website captain, who came with change orders and minor tweaks before the launch.

Last week no one visited me.

Avi was dropped off yesterday morning and I did all I could to entertain her and work on the site. Big kudos to all Mums who have to vacuum the house with a kid on their hip. I only vacuumed because the midwife was coming at 4 ... and she cancelled at 3.50.

I was happy when Hubba was home from school. I needed the extra set of eyes and even though Hubba irritates Avi - she doesn't like when Hubba picks her up - it was worth listening to the screams from the baby. Avi is going to punch Hubba square in the face one day.

I have no words for this one.

Today my Grandmother turned 87.
She must be the oldest person in the community .. surely.
My brother always says dragons live forever.

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!
