There was hardly any English spoken around our house, everything was Maori, I was raised by Amohia (my nana) my mother was her daughter Letia, who went to australia to work, so I stayed with nana, and couldnt speak English until I started School at 4 or 5, those where just beautiful days, I clearly remember her red lipstick, her flower gardens, her kai gardens, the smell of Detol in the house, she was always bathing me in it, the pea garden we made together, I really miss my nan, not a day passes that I don't think of her..xox
