We Say, You Say: Home Hobbies

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Western Leader

Hi neighbours,

How have you been passing the time during lockdown?

With Auckland back in Level 3, most of us are back working from the kitchen table, juggling work, school and childcare - simultaneously for some.

Last year, Stuff reported on the great array of hobbies New Zealanders picked up during the lockdown, such as home workouts and learning a few new cooking hacks. PC gaming also proved popular with Google search trends for March 2020 showing a 400 per cent search increase for the term.

What are you going to be up to during Level 3? Share your thoughts below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comment featured in the conversations section of the Western Leader.

FREE SCHOOL LUNCHES

Linda from Henderson

How many of you watched the news last night, when it showed these college aged kids turning up their noses at the cheese sandwiches and extras provided by the goodness of the community and the taxpayers.
Did you pick up that one student commented that there was no meat in the free lunch, and therefore it wasn't worth eating?
Not one of those kids was remotely skinny, mostly overfed and definitely ungrateful.
From now on my charity will stay strictly at home. Help with grandchildren's exorbitant Uni fees, and the so called hungry can be choosy with someone else's contribution.

How to recycle broken glass

The Team from Auckland Council

Learn what to do when recycling broken glass. Large chunks are ok, as long as they are from grocery packaging. Always remember when recycling if in doubt, leave it out.
