This last year and a half has been a real eye opener and an even bigger test of my patience.
So many things were unable to be done, so many family and friends haven't been seen face to face since ... hell I don't even remember.
All I can say is thank goodness for WhatsApp, Face Time and Zoom calls.
We normally go on holiday every 2 years after saving our backsides off and going without so much, but we haven't been able to for 3 years or so now.
So I was skimming through my passport/s, remembering the good ol' days (Ahh ... Croatia , I miss you so much).
This got me to thinking, "What did I do in 2020?"
Then it hit me ... this is what I did for so much of 2020 ... (pic attached)
UNBELIEVABLE!!. When is this ever going to end? Come November 1st, no doubt there will still be ongoing restrictions to our freedom.
What I resent so much, is that those of us who have been vacccinated for months, played the game, did every thing we were meant to, and still we are locked down.
All these Govt. promises that when Auckland reaches 90% vaccination we will have more freedom. What a joke. 89% vacccinated, how can it take until 1st November to vaccinate 1%.
I am so angry at all these months of being dictated to as to how I can live my life. Or not live it, might be more accurate!
This year Kiwis are being encouraged to grow-an-extra-row to share with neighbours, community pantries, food banks and other local food donation agencies.
Backyard and communal edible gardens not only provide healthy, sustainable and tasty kai, they also create greater food resiliency within our hapori.
