This cat has been visiting my house (Abbotts way) for the last week during nighttime, he eats our cat’s food and sleeps inside. He is very friendly to people which makes me think he has a home but he’s lost.

We took him to the vet but he hasn’t a microchip. If you know this cat please let me know x thanks 🙏🙏

I had gotten them voluntary myself off years ago to stop it spreading but it has had returned again. don't we hate them ! Love to have someone who has knowledge of getting rid of them, of course I had googled how to get rid of them but I am not in good form now. I so passionately hate them... it's at 31 Eldon Road. the owners are just housing NZ tenants not savvy in plant weeds knowledge ... arrgh. They knew but they were too lazy. If I don't get any reply here, I will take further action later this week.

The Matariki cluster will send Aotearoa a new public holiday next year.

The actual date of Matariki will move but is expected to always fall on a Friday or Monday.

The first day off will be Friday June 24 in 2022.

Government advice suggests the new Matariki public holiday will cost businesses between $377 - $448 million.

But that advice does not include any potential economic benefits from the new public holiday, set to be introduced from next year.

The estimated cost has come under fire from ACT leader David Seymour who said the public holiday amounted to a tax on business.

Seymour suggested that the Government get rid of another public holiday to make way for Matariki.

Single Bed Solid Oak frames with slats

Emma from Mount Eden

These lovely old (1950’s) matching pair of solid oak bed frames are delightful. Great as children’s beds or use in smaller rooms as single guest beds. Potential to paint and make more modern or keep in original style. Excellent condition and they are made from solid wood and with heavy steel … View moreThese lovely old (1950’s) matching pair of solid oak bed frames are delightful. Great as children’s beds or use in smaller rooms as single guest beds. Potential to paint and make more modern or keep in original style. Excellent condition and they are made from solid wood and with heavy steel runners.
We had them for our kids and now they’re grown up, so no need anymore. We made the slats ourselves from old decking wood (these would originally have had wire sprung bases attached to the steel runners) and the slats worked well. All that’s needed is a mattress on the top. (We have 1 very old mattress available, which if you want you can have for free).

Prefer to sell as pair for $100 but would consider selling separately for $65 each.

Approx. Dimensions (inside)
910 mm Width
1900 mm Length

Pick up in Mount Eden. They are dismantled now, so easy to transport in a car.
PM me on 021 0855 0656 only if interested in buying. Cheers :)

Stress changes our metabolism, research shows

Eve from Eve Rudkin Mindfulness

People talk a lot about eating well as a key part of being healthy. But research has shown that stress not only causes people to eat unhealthily but also can cancel out the benefits of eating a healthier diet because of changes to metabolism.

People talk a lot about eating well as a key part of being healthy. But research has shown that stress not only causes people to eat unhealthily but also can cancel out the benefits of eating a healthier diet because of changes to metabolism.

So stress really matters, says Jan Kiecolt-Glaser, lead study author (pictured). Clinical trials showed that stress affects our biological response to a meal containing healthy fats, with an increased inflammatory response in a stressed state, according to her research from the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction is proven to lower stress levels. Have a look at my website below to find out about the courses I teach
