Product of the week

Marie from Waikanae

This weeks pick for top product is Harraways Organic Rolled Oats. Bagged in paper and only a couple of dollars more than the non organic version, they are great value for money and very environmentally friendly. Great nutty taste too. I use them in muesli and most baking.

PS - for those who raised the important point about waxed paper in my post supporting Much Moores Ice Cream 1 litre cardboard pack: I found that by soaking the cardboard briefly the brown backing easily peeled off. I put this in my home compost where it seems to be breaking down fine, and sent the rest of the cardboard to the recycle bin.

How is your pet reacting to you being around all the time?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Coco follows her owner round the house all day, Buster has started barking at strangers, and Rover has already been walked by every member of the family today. Twice. Dogs are overjoyed to have humans home 24/7, but they're sensitive, and during times of human stress need special care. How are your pets coping?

Where can I get a 12V battery charger?

Quentin from Paraparaumu Beach

Hi all, the car battery is slowly draining with us no longer using it. Keen to get a 12V car charger, but not sure where I can source one during lockdown - any suggestions?

Would rather not leave the car running in the driveway for 1/2 hour to charge it.
