welcome (& help) new neighbour

Julia from Henderson

kia ora lovely neighbours

as some of you know, I love the marketplace on here - (you know people are LOCAL, easy to collect) - and meet such lovely neighbours in the process.

I did not click on the 'ad' for "free house hold stuff" - as I though were GIVING away stuff - and little I need right now.

oh when I did - a very easy mistake to make - ASKING for - not giving away

Amanda & her 2 sons (12 & 16) have just moved here, out west, from Wellington - and looking for a helping hand

so generous neighbours - is there anything surplus to your requirement that you can help Amanda with?

"Hi me an my two sons have just relocated to Glen Eden from Wellington an are looking for few things for our house kitchen table an chairs pots an pans an draws cabinets etc thank you"

"16 and 12 and we are needing dinning table and chairs vacuum kitchen stuff and draws for boys rooms"

I think I have a spare large frying pan - but can't help with the rest....

if you can't help, all good - just if you don't ask, you don't get - (so see Amanda's ad - in Marketplace - under "free house hold stuff" - for her contact info)

peace & love - arohanui

Spice up your winter

Murray Halberg Retirement Village

When it’s cold outside, there's nothing quite like being inside the cosy warmth of a kitchen infused with the aroma of spices. But did you know that beyond their aromatic allure, these spices harbour a treasure trove of health benefits?

So, whether you're sipping on mulled wine, indulging in gingerbread, or savouring a hearty stew, every bite promises to not just please your palate but also contribute to your overall wellbeing.
