Hazy weekend for New Zealand.. again

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hazy skies caused by the tragic 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!

Countdown Online Shopping

Kim Neighbourly Lead from Mount Roskill

Have you done your grocery shopping online and had it delivered?
Well, for a long time I said I would never do this. I at the time, considered it lazy of myself Lol.
However, changes in circumstances have left me exploring my options. I've now had my shopping delivered quite a few times, and I can not stress enough how great it is. It may not be for everyone, I appreciate that.
I love that I can get up at my usual early rising time (before light), make a cuppa, and sit and do my shopping from the comfort of my seat in my pj's.
The feeling of having done it and knowing it will be delivered soon, without stepping foot in the store, is great.
Stress free. Safe. Never had an order go wrong. Packed and stored correctly and safely.
I wish I had been doing it way before now.
I just wanted to give this a shout out and recommend you have a go and see if it's for you.
I'm converted. From never will I, to, I love it and don't want to do it another way.
If I get a taxi to and from my home to shop, it would be $20ish return, then the waiting for the taxi, the queues and for those anxiety sufferers, the busyness of the store. For $15 someone actually takes my list and trolley and does it for me, then someone else will deliver it and all I have to do is put it all away. Oh the bother Lol.
It's 7am and the shopping is done, before the store is open!
Fabulous! Don't be frightened of the process or cost like I was. It's worth it!
