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.

Auckland is losing all of its history. Save this beautiful Church and keep it for generations to come.
St David's - The Soldiers’ Memorial Church commissioned on ANZAC Day 1927 to commemorate our national loss - has been put up for sale by commercial tender. We are calling on New Zealanders to help buy the church to protect it in perpetuity as a living memorial for all New Zealanders.
Donate what you can, $1, $5, $10 - when this church is gone it's gone forever.
