Razor blades in the walls....

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

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.

Mental Well-Being

Henck from Central-West Invercargill

Mental well-being in challenging times. We just launched our first series of mental well-being seminars, a series of workshops focused on teaching people life skills that improve mental well-being in difficult times. All our work is based on the notion that stress, depression, anxiety and all other forms of mental unwell-being are caused by keeping our mind in automatic pilot. By using the skills we teach this automatic pilot is swithced off and you are back to manual control.
The four topics that we start our seminars/workshops with are: Mindfulness, Communication skills for couples, Rational Thinking skills and Self-compassion skills. Have a look: vanbilsen.help...
