LOCKDOWN

Linda from Henderson

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!

Property investors are selling off

Raj Bhonsle from Raj Bhonsle Residential & Commercial Universal

Property investors are selling off older properties to buy newer ones as they look to manage investments against changes to tax rules and healthy homes standards.

Hamilton-based Lodge Real Estate managing director Jeremy O'Rourke, said the trend has been noticeable over the past few months.

😷😷Please wear your mask😷😷

Sadly, we've reached a new high of positive Covid results today, absolutely shocking and so very disappointing.

Sadly, we've reached a new high of positive Covid results today, absolutely shocking and so very disappointing.
We've all read the posters telling us to wear our mask (and social distance) since way back when all of this Covid stuff started.
We've all heard the various Government departments and media platforms telling us the exact same message, hell even our leader has told us to do this almost on a daily message as so many people just haven't got the message yet.
And yet ... so many people won't because they can't be bothered or they will refuse to do so spouting this, that or the other.
Now, unless they are medically signed off proving that they can't wear a mask for medial reasons, there is absolute no reason whatsoever for them to not be wearing a mask
Also, if they are wearing a mask - there are those who are wearing it incorrectly which is in effect a waste of time wearing one then.
We are all clever enough to know that wearing a mask will not stop the virus, but it sure as hell will slow down the transmission of it between each other.
The masks are to protect each other, your family, my family, everyone's family.
I have included a couple of pics to remind all of us how to wear the mask correctly, even one for the cat lovers - lol
While I'm here, when you dispose of the masks, please, PLEASE dispose of them correctly.
I'm fed up seeing them disposed of all over the place now e.g. gutters, people's gardens, thrown out of the car windows etc ... replacing the takeaways rubbish we used to see before lockdown.
Those poor people who have to come up behind you and pick them up, putting their lives at risk, all because you were too lazy to put your mask in the rubbish bin.
PLEASE dispose of them correctly in the rubbish bins and don't forget to sanitise your hands afterwards.

Here's a cool idea for communicating with your neighbours without technology or breaching alert level rules...

The Team from Neighbourhood Support New Zealand

Each household gets 3 pieces of coloured paper that can be displayed in a window or on a door that others can easily see.

- Green is for I'm OK

- Yellow is for needing help or a check-in

- Red is for an emergency

😄🤔Sitting back and remembering ... 🤔😄

Fiona from Henderson

This last year and a half has been a real eye opener and an even bigger test of my patience.

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) and 2021 seems to be pretty much the same 😉😄😄🤣🤣🤣
