Ehara i te Mea

Some of the classes at Sam’s school visited Wiri Central School on Wednesday, and he’s been singing a few waiata since then. ┬áThis is the first verse of his favourite, Ehara i te Mea, which I remember singing when I was in primary school. Advertisements

Which came first?

So it’s been ages. Mostly I can’t remember how to use the website and I never use the big computer: I’m always using my phone. Anyway. Hi. Now that I can update from the iPhone, I hopefully will use this more regular-like. Cute story time: Sam and I went to the Matakana Country Park the […]

Four Beaches and a Birthday

As most people (reading this) know, my 30th birthday was a week ago tomorrow. Samuel and I were in Whangarei that weekend (a story for another time), so I spent my birthday with my parents – I think possibly the first time in a decade. We had a very nice day – I did a […]

The video quality isn’t great, since it was taken with the still camera rather than the video camera (and whoever was shooting it – I don’t remember […]

Caught red, blue and green handed…

Last week, Samuel figured out how to climb out of his cot (he was back in the cot for a while after we moved, to makes things easier during the Internet drought of 2008). His room at the new house has a door that he can’t open (actually, no-one can open it from inside), so […]

Samuel is two years old today! ┬áStill no Internet access at home (and it may be two weeks yet before there is), so photos and so on will be late arriving, sorry. This morning he got up around 7 a.m., where he found all the toys that live at Grandma & Granddad’s (we are staying […]
