Hi neighbours, as you've probably heard and noticed, Lime and Wave e-scooters must be off the streets today. However, Flamingo is still operating its rental e-scooters in the central suburbs. Here's some more information about where you can find them. Do you still use e-scooters? Are you missing Limes and Waves? Tell us in the comments.
There is a hen wandering on my driveway from yesterday. She looks abandoned but in good health. If anyone wants to give her a good home/add to existing flock please let me know: 021 102 3002
Hazy skies caused by the Australian bush fires are set to linger this weekend.
Northwesterly winds have blown a hazy plume of smoke across the Tasman Sea, and while it has mostly affected the South Island in recent weeks, it has moved up the country.
The "robust plume" is expected to head to the South Island late on Saturday.
The haze has been causing a yellowish-orange, hue at sunset, making for some sweet sunset photos. Share your photos in the comments!
