Grumpy christmas.

I feel it's brewing to be the worst Christmas in a while. I'm trying to remember the worst one before that. Even when Larry died a month before Christmas it wasn't the worst Christmas really. I woke up yesterday feeling different and woke up today feeling worse than yesterday. Mitchy said it was the cold sore I've been rocking since Saturday. I can't pin point what it is, but it's not the cold sore.

I would like to be left alone on Christmas day, me and mine, but I'm doing it for Hub's and mingling with my family for a couple of hours.

I'm over the visitors who always want something. When did visiting stop being visiting to actually visit and observe the well being of the person? I've spent too much money on a dumb platter and people keep giving me chocolate. Like I need it.

2017 is looking positive, but the ending of 2016 looks very blah.

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!
