Fill up an ice tray with water. Add a couple drops of food colouring to each cube using a variety of colours. Once the rainbow ice is frozen, let your toddler play with the ice cubes outside on a tray. It’s a good opportunity to talk to your toddler about colours and to think about what will happen when they melt and merge.
FEATURE: This is a heart-warming story of an American couple who adopted twin Samoan boys who were sheltered by the wonderful Samoa Victim Support since they were infants. Adoptions of orphaned children in Samoa can be a lengthy and strenuous one and in this case, 4 years long, but the Silverman family say it was all worth it!
Well, specs of marmite on hot toast with melted butter, generous servings of crunchy nut cornflakes and fresh marinated Whakatõhea mussles have been the go with me lately tasting absolutely divine morning, noon and night!! :)
Actually I've been making up for my losses eating everything and anything in sight just in the last week alone I've popped right out, hika such far cry from being squeemish at any whiff waiffing up the corridors, only being able to hold down dry pieces of toast or crackers oh and of course I can't forget those random dizzy fainting spells on planes, in cars, at home, in studio or where ever - there really is no discreet way to ruāki ay, sooo shamoes especially on the plane lol!!
Absolutely merciless in its reproach this third time round so different from my first two, hēoi, with each belt I must admit there was comfort as it meant my baby's strong and maybe even a lil kõtiro this time mā te wā ka mõhio :)
So grateful and happy, had our 20 week scan yesterday and baby is developing and doing all the right things, like his/her tuakana we left the official 'what' for a surprise but already have a strong incline to the 'what' lol :) just wanted to share with you all our exciting news xoxo
Just over 12 months ago i got the call to create 13 videos for Justin's Purpose Album and filmed them all in 22 days with so many amazing dancers. The videos all together have had over 3 billion & 550 million views so far. What a great statement for dance......

Today is exactly one year since i stopped eating all meat. Thats no chicken, beef, pork, fish, seafood or any living breathing animal. I wanted to challenge myself & see if i could function without meat in my diet, safe to say im doing just fine. So to celebrate i got my arm pits tattoo'd with funny little funky Tiki's, thanks to Pepa BohemianTattoo. Big ups to all the vegans & vegetarians out there who've been doing that buzz for years, much respect to you guys. *tiki* #VeggiesAreGood #ArmPitTattoos #Keke #TreeHugger #Bush #NoAnimalsWereHarmedInTheMakingOfThis
The Leaders' Week at the UN is over - as usual it was for me a whirl of events and meetings. As New Zealand is chairing the Security Council this month, and both the Prime Minister and the Minister of Foreign Affairs came to New York, there was a sizeable NZ media contingent - and a lot of interest in my #Helen4SG candidacy! Here's my interview with Paddy Gower of TV3, exploring the various factors at play in this contest. The next straw poll - the fifth and final - is tomorrow, Monday in New York. After that, the voting will be conducted on a different basis with different coloured voting papers for the five Permanent Members (P5), each of whom has the power to veto candidates. I'm very grateful to PM John Key, Foreign Minister Murray McCully, the NZ Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and so many members of the Kiwi public for their staunch advocacy and support for this campaign. http://www.newshub.co.nz/nznews/it-aint-over-yet---helen-clark-on-un-secretary-general-bid-2016092412
This week we should have been in Wellington for the appeal October the 6th was the date we were given. After waiting for over a year i thought I was prepared and organised, even booking a family holiday (as the judgement can take months) so we had a distraction. However the appeal has been postponed and at this stage we have no idea when this will be. I very rarely write about my feelings and I was hoping once the court process was over I could open up more about Connor and the night he was murdered. The media coverage has been harrowing, but I understand that anything derogatory about Connor's murderer (whom i shall call coward) can be grounds for an appeal. Connor was a charismatic loveable character and we all know how infectious his laugh was. It is of no surprise to me that he went to the aid of his friends, in my mind he is a hero. He had this rare quality where he could mix with society's elite and quite happily talk to the homeless. He was colour blind when it came to people, it didn't matter what creed or colour you are but the person you are. He was both tough and soft a wonderful mixed trait in a man and he loved..... loved his family, loved Millie loved his brothers, friends his dogs and more than anything loved his neices.
I will tell your story Connor (once this appeal has ended) I think of you everyday and we all miss you so much - so much sadness. I will never stop fighting for justice for you - never. biggest ever hugs..... Mumma
