With Maori Language Week upon us, we've been adding a few more words to our te reo vocabulary and using them in our everyday lives.
Whether it's saying 'mōrena!' every morning to your whānau or singing some waiata in the car, share how you are incorporating te reo Māori below to go into the draw to win one of four $25 prezzy cards - let's kōrero!
I loved talking to Courtney Mason about how she and her husband ben bought their first home. It really offers a lot of hope for folks who might be looking at the property market and wondering what on earth is happening out there these days.
Courtney and Ben were tenacious and bold, and now they're living happily in their Hawke's Bay home.
Have a read and see how they did it, and while you're at it have a listen to our third episode of First Rung, the podcast for first home buyers for a little more inspiration.
We saw some friendly ghosts and even some costumed pooches this year! We'd love for you to spread the joy further than your backyard by sharing a snap from your Halloween festivities below 🎃
