The happenings.

I finally finished the second book. I'm still an amateur when it comes to writing a book, but I managed to pull it all together and got decent sales on the first book and enough people to moan about when the second book was coming out. I was late in completing it for sponsors and lost a few, as mentioned before, but I got through it and it's done. There are still a few things to do before the paperback version will be available, but the digital file is good to go.

Tyler's about ready to blow. She finished work this week and has been home resting or following me wherever I go. The nesting phase hasn't come yet, but her parents bought her a changing table this morning that has found a place in my living room because we have too much baby stuff everywhere else. Hopefully looking at it every day will inspire her.

We got rid of Hub's this morning and went to see Shaily at the Relay for Life event at the sports park in town. She's running/walking for 12 hours. It was pretty inspiring and I got me a squad to do it with next year.

Big sister and little sister yesterday. Avis is going to eat the new baby up.

Shaily got her braces off during the week.

Hub's is going fantastic at school .. and she's been wearing that dress since Wednesday.

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!
