More news from the marae

Kia ora, hello, how are you all? Neat, I thought you were…My condolences to all who have lost loved ones.

Where will I start, I know…glass dishes – it’s not good enough, we still have not received any of them back, so I hope whoever has them is feeling guilty.

We recently went up to Te Papa for our Matariki weekend and what a lovely weekend it was. All the youngies, oldies and those in between enjoyed themselves, and of course I am one of the youngies (I wish). 

We are still busy at the marae, what with hosting hui, birthdays and yes (one of those too). My niece, Koral held her 50th birthday at home recently. It was very nice and if nobody enjoyed it, well I did. As Joan said, I wanted to dance, so moko said right, dance out to the car, you’re going home. So I went to Michelle’s and never went back to my other daughter’s home (Roberta) where I have been staying since the earthquake, till the Wednesday. Then on Saturday it was Grenville’s Birthday – (he is Noeline and Tasman’s son).  After the kai we all had, I couldn’t drink, but he gave me a bottle of my favourite drink – he and I can drink it later. 

My cousin Charlie and I started the drinking session at Koral’s birthday, wasn’t that nice Charlie?

I think I’d better finish as it is all about me but who cares. I’d better go and finish my scratchies and puzzles.  Hope the weather will clear soon so we can moan that it’s too hot. Cheers for now and until next time. Luv you all.
