Our journey to Rio has been full of many emotions, but I am so pleased and happy to receive my silver medal tonight with my Gabe next to me. We laughed and we cried, we conquered a lot of obstacles along the way to get to this position. I am so pleased and very proud to be a kiwi and with my heart left out on the field I knew I gave it my everything and I couldn't be disappointed or mad at that. We all want to win and I wanted it more then anyone else, that's sport for yah, but we must all celebrate every medal we are awarded as I know and understand how hard it was to get here. With all my love and gratitude I thank you all NZ and all my supporters around the world for your support, love and continued faith in me. What next is yet to be decided as the season isn't over yet but for now we shall enjoy the moment, smile and give thanks to our Heavenly Father for blessing us so abundantly. #TeamAdams #MrsPrice #ThankYouRio #Blessed #BeTheInspiration #EternalCompanion #NZProud 🇳🇿🇧🇷🙏🏽👍🏽❤️⚫️
We spent $26m on the referendum, and I'm sure some people will say that's just the price of democracy. I think it was the price of something... I'm just not sure it was democracy.
I think it would have been the price of democracy if there had been a significant pre-existing public mood to change the flag. There wasn't. So, in my view, whatever kicked all this off... it wasn't democracy.
In any case that's all moot now.
On the bright side, we may have spent $26m on the referendum, but at least we won't have to spend all those many more millions of dollars actually changing the flag.
Speaking of which... I wonder who I can email now with ideas for spending all that money we won't need to spend on changing the flag? I've got lots of ideas...

Nothing raises spirits like a passionate haka, and protesters with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe certainly appreciated this encouragement in recent days after facing down riot police in the US state of North Dakota -- where an oil pipeline is slated to be built over their sacred land.

I just got my hair done today, which is 4th time this year, and the most commitment I've had to a hairdresser in a long time.
Getting my hair done is a complete luxury, and one I hadn't done for a long time. It is something that makes me feel like a million bucks. However I am very aware at how expensive it is for a lot of you (including myself, which is why I go to Hue).
So what I would like to personally do, is to pay for one Mum to have her hair cut / coloured / styled (whatever you want) ... It doesn't have to be at a specific hairdresser; it can be with your local if you would like.
>> TO ENTER <<
1. LIKE Happy Mum Happy Child on Facebook (only fair right 😝) 2. LIKE + COMMENT on this post - tell me if you'd like to win (tell me why if you want) 3. TAG / SHARE with all of your hair loving Mum friends (you can nominate a person if you don't want it yourself)
All comments count as extra entries, however tagging / sharing is not mandatory.
I will phone the winner's hairdresser of choice and pre-pay for the visit, all the winner has to do is book it.
This is open to New Zealand residents only (sorry everyone else). Not associated with Facebook and all that Facebook jazz. Winner will be drawn at my discretion.
