Saving water

Rosa from Mount Wellington

When we shower we use this $5 plastic bucket and then throw it on the plants.
We use all organic shampoo and dishwashing liquid.
The garden looks fantastic....

Poll: Should your rates be frozen because of Covid-19?

Todd Niall Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi Neighbours, It's a tough one for many, the prospect of rates rising 3.5 per cent, in these uncertain times. It is easy to say "Freeze!" but that's not as simple as it sounds. What do you think? Read the story here: www.stuff.co.nz...

Website for click & collect supermarket slots

Christine from Mount Wellington

Hi!
clickandcollect.nz... - This website aggregates supermarkets in NZ where there are available click and collect (pick up) slots, so you can shop online at that supermarket for your supplies and choose the next available time to pick. But try to stay as local as possible. The closest one we found in the following few days (not weeks!) was in Grey Lynn and that's about a 15km drive so not too bad. Good luck!

Got the baking bug in your bubble?

The Team from Auckland Museum

We think you’ll love this New Zealand Hot Cross and Cold Cross Bun recipe from Aunt Daisy's Cookery Book of Approved Recipes, from our collection.

Maud Ruby Basham (30 August 1879 – 14 July 1963), professionally known as Aunt Daisy, was a well-loved New Zealand radio broadcaster. Her 30-minute daily morning show ran from 1933 to 1963. Her role was primarily to promote household products and to boost morale during World War II. Try out this recipe and it might just boost your morale! Best served hot with lashings of butter…

Aunt Daisy’s full recipe and other activities for the Easter Weekend are over at our Auckland Museum at Home Hub!
