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.  This is the first verse of his favourite, Ehara i te Mea, which I remember singing when I was in primary school. Advertisements

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 […]

Slide Video

Another short one: a little video from a few weeks ago of Samuel playing on the slide (there’s a head, shoulders, knees & toes segment, too), when he first started climbing the ladder on his own. Again, video from the still camera, so not great quality and no audio. There’s a small version (33 MB) […]

Stay tuned!

In brief: We moved. I was promised a home phone line and Internet connection either the day we moved or a couple of days later.  A week and a half later the phone line appeared and the Internet order has had to be redone.  Moral: avoid TelstraClear at all costs.  I’ll rant about them elsewhere, […]
