Tell us about the coronavirus lockdown champions in your community

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

We want to celebrate the unsung heroes who are keeping our country going through lockdown.

Frontline nurse Debra Larsen's life has turned into a "real whirlwind" since the coronavirus outbreak began.

She's been so busy setting up testing centres around the Waikato. and helping them run smoothly that she's barely seen her two teenage daughters.

Do you know a coronavirus lockdown champion who deserves to be recognised? Tell us about them in the comments below.

Let the games begin

The Team from Resene ColorShop Kapiti

Recreate a classic game in an unconventional format using Resene testpots to paint your own dominoes. Smooth rocks, like those found on the beach or in a river bed, work best for this project.

Take the kids out to search for ones that lay flat and are generally round or oblong in shape. If you don’t live near water, you should be able to get some from your local garden supply store.

Make the most of this weekend with this easy step by step project idea from Resene.

Find out how to create your own rock domino set.

Partly remembered poem

Ivor from Waikanae

I am trying to trace the origins of a poem I first heard in England in the 1950s. The first verse goes like this:-
"Life can't be all plain sailing,
The sky can't always be blue,
The whole world can't be upholstered
To keep the knocks from you."
Can anyone remember reading or hearing the rest of it or who wrote it?
