This week we feature Thomas the tūī and a lovely picture and words from by Simon Woolf.

As the Government moves to double employees' sick leave entitlements, a man is calling for a law change to go even further – and allow workers to take a paid day off on their birthday.

Hallett has launched a petition to Parliament requesting it pass legislation to give all employees that right.
