Hello everyone. I was just having a look at our security cameras this afternoon and saw some activity of a child coming into our backyard with a lawnmower and knocking on the door. i just wanted to ask if this is anyone’s kid or knows who it is because people shouldn’t be going into my backyard.
One of my friends has recently experienced a highly challenging situation within the Christchurch City Council which in turn has cost her a considerable expense. This was arising from a strong wind causing serious (major) damage to her motor vehicle when parked near to a road works (a Christchurch, street) signage. Although the Council staff have indicated having no liability for these types of incidents, believe have appropriate indemnity insurance to cover these particular (and often quite regular) accidents. Would be interesting to learn if anyone else has been confronted with a similar issue.
Has anyone ever seen something like the image below in an older Kiwi home? Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.
We love how creative some people are with their plant giving! This is for goodie bags for a 7 year olds party but we reckon you could borrow this wonderful idea for the Neighbours Day Aotearoa Great Plant Swap!
What a lovely gift to get and it's not just kids who love sunflowers.
ADDED BONUS: if you give your neighbours sunflower seeds you would get to enjoy their beautiful flowers too!
