School camp

For the second time EVER, Hub's has gone away from me for a night. This doesn't include staying with family for a night. She's been excited about the camp all weekend and got up this morning still holding the same spirit, but when it came to dropping her off at school and saying goodbye this morning she began to realize what was going on and asked the principal, "Can my Mum come too?".

Despite the anxiety I'm feeling now, I would not have gone if they paid me.

Taking comfort in Rome, Kiara, Zion, Jaamin and Kavarn all being there with her aswell as Darrell, Leven and Southon - the other cousins.
I know she'll be fine!

I stayed at work 3 hours later than normal tonight so I could hang out with my Mum and avoid coming home to a Hubba-less house.

I'd buy her a pony right now I miss her that much.

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!
