Where did all the waterbeds go?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Did you have - or do you still have - a Waterbed? I hunted high and low for someone who still used one of the originals, but couldn't find a soul who'd own up to it.
What do you think about these wonderfully kitsch pieces of retro bedroom decor?

Ally Swann is determined that health complications won’t keep her from completing her third consecutive The Press Run To Remember next month.

The 36-year-old first took part in the event in 2019 with her golden retriever Minnie, and improved on her time the following year despite enduring long-standing struggles with liver and bowel disease.

This year she comes prepared with a game plan and a goal – to once again beat her previous time in the 10-kilometre walk and run though the Port Hills on February 21, created to honour the lives lost in the Canterbury earthquakes.
