Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

Hi everyone,
My little 12 year-old sister and I have some more freshly-picked, pesticide-free habaneros off our bush that we would like to sell to earn some pocket money.

The $1 coin is for size reference, these habaneros are much bigger than chillies I have seen at the local supermarket retailing for $1:30 each (picture included indicating size relative to a $1 coin) and are really hot so you only need to cut up a small portion into food. Habaneros store well in the freezer so any leftover can be frozen until needed for up to a few months.

$1 each or 6 for $5.

I also have some that I have frozen that we would still like to sell at a rate of 2 for $1.50.

Covid-19 safety precautions:
It is recommended that you rinse produce thoroughly with hot water.
See covid19.govt.nz....

Please PM me or email me at haydenthemonkey@gmail.com for more info. Thank!
