😄🤔Sitting back and remembering ... 🤔😄

Fiona from Henderson

This last year and a half has been a real eye opener and an even bigger test of my patience.
So many things were unable to be done, so many family and friends haven't been seen face to face since ... hell I don't even remember.
All I can say is thank goodness for WhatsApp, Face Time and Zoom calls.
We normally go on holiday every 2 years after saving our backsides off and going without so much, but we haven't been able to for 3 years or so now.
So I was skimming through my passport/s, remembering the good ol' days (Ahh ... Croatia , I miss you so much).
This got me to thinking, "What did I do in 2020?"
Then it hit me ... this is what I did for so much of 2020 ... (pic attached) and 2021 seems to be pretty much the same 😉😄😄🤣🤣🤣

What are you looking forward to at the traffic light system?

Josephine Franks Reporter from Western Leader

Kia ora neighbours, the traffic lights are in sight and we'd love to know what you're most looking forward to once Aucklanders have more freedom. Maybe it's being reunited with family outside Auckland, going to the pub, or just being able to hang out inside a friend's house (and use their loo!).
