12 days till Christmas - Rebel Girl.

Mum, MUM. Can I PLEASE have a kitten for Christmas? I'm not allergic anymore because I've been holding Ngawi's cat all.this.time.
(30 minutes)
No cats.
Please Mum!? I'm not even allergic anymore!

We get home not 2 minutes later.

Your eyes are puffy and you have welts everywhere.
It's not the cat Mum, it wasn't the cat!
It wasn't the cat! It wasn't!
It wasn't the cat Mum, please it wasn't the cat!
Please Mum! It wasn't the cat!
Off to the emergency department we went.

Excuse the typo from the Dr, but it was the damn cat.  

Stayed home from school today because she looked like Shrek and her medicine had her sleep in till 9.30am.

She's been wanting this for a few months. I promised her she could get them when school was over for the year. We're 2 days shy of the end of the school year and since we were home today. She was a brave little fish and was more excited than anxious.

She also wants a short hair-cut like Larell (still thinking about this one), blue hair and a real tattoo.
Happy Holidays.
Now some pictures of pretty girls and not Shrek girl.

Ok .. one last Shrek photo.

Happy Holidays.

I loved my short hair, I always wanted it as a kid because my long hair was hard for me to manage as a kid. Now that I'm older I switch it up a lot. I have some temporary blue here I got as a white elephant gift, I'll send :)

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!
