Hi neighbours,

Sally Prendergast could not bear to look as her daughter raced towards a first Olympic gold medal.

Grace Prendergast and Kerri Gowler were hot favourites to win the women's pair final after setting the world’s fastest time in the semi-final in Tokyo on Wednesday.

But the odds did nothing to ease Sally Prendergast's nerves going into Thursday's final.

She conceded she “didn’t even watch the end”.

Sally Prendergast told Stuff she was "wide awake" overnight with excitement and nerves, but said the family was confident in the pair's ability.

Grace Prendergast, who was born in Christchurch in 1992, began rowing for Villa Maria College out of Avon Rowing Club in Christchurch in 2007.

Hey neighbours,

Work to convert Christchurch’s heritage-listed Old Post Office building into a multi-use hospitality space is taking shape.

The Press was given a sneak peek inside The Grand, which will occupy the two-storey building in Cathedral Square, plus a large outdoor section. It is scheduled to open in December.

The space includes a restaurant, café and bars, an i-Site visitor information centre, artisan bakery, pâtisserie, florist and gift store, and a South Island food tasting experience promoting local wine, beer, cheese and meat.

Did you visit the old post office before the quakes? And will you visit this new offering once it's ready?

TIME names Christchurch and Northland among 'world's greatest places'

Christchurch and Northland have both made TIME’s list of the “World’s Greatest Places of 2021”.

The New York-based magazine and website drew upon its global network of correspondents and contributors to compile the 100-strong list “as a tribute to the people and businesses at the forefront” of the travel, tourism and hospitality industries so badly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Christchurch was commended for its ongoing transformation in the wake of the earthquake that reduced much of the city to rubble a decade ago.

While the rebuild is not complete, TIME contributor Jessica Wynne Lockhart noted vacant lots were “regularly filled with creative and interactive installations such as hammock forests and a coin-operated dance floor.”

I love our way of life...
I started dieting when I was 12 years old. I wasn’t overweight but I felt pudgy and I wanted a new boy at school to like me. Somehow, I obtained a calorie counting book and quickly memorized it. Each day, I tried hard to reach my goal of eating a certain number of calories. It was well below what I needed to eat as a growing child, but I didn’t see it that way at the time. I just wanted to get rid of my squishy stomach and eat a little less. Thus began a powerful obsession with being thin and trying to control my eating. But I also couldn’t see that at the time. I didn’t realize how much mental energy and time I spent thinking about what I was eating, when, and how much, or how inadequate I felt for not being perfect or thin enough.
