Well us Wellington folks are getting a wee shake with the latest covid case. Have already heard from some of my team who are a bit anxious, and my MIL was also pretty nervous about what might happen. Hopefully people pull finger and get back to scanning.
So, I’ve successfully returned from NZ, spent the weekend downsizing my mums place (throwing out stuff and changing 9 light bulbs), I really felt bad over the last year, if she had got sick or just old I couldn’t get over their easily to help her
One great score was finding my old Otago and highlanders jerseys!
Great work, I changed 2 bulbs and a door handle thingee last time I went back. The latter took me 4 x trips to Mitre 10, fark I'm hopeless at that stuff 🤣
Next lockdown you should spend it working on your handyman skills rather than relaxing in Queenstown or hanging out on the Northern beaches. 😉
The phrase "lost cause" springs to mind
I'm pretty sure @Nepia is the guy that can't cook....have at him mate!
Barely though. I haven't ordered anything online from a butcher because the choices are so limited under current conditions. Every cafe and restaurant here is closed. I'm fucking gagging for a takeaway coffee and a vindaloo. You don't think 4 days of business will be important to them?
We got our usual meat order last week, free delivery too, which was great given Dominoes dont even deliver out as far as we are, the booze shop wont either.
I am sure it will be, but I just think this wil be thier (the Govt) 'happy medium'
Funnily enough, we haven't been for the first 2 months of 2020 - and have hated it! Bali roads, licenses, insurance etc, all leads to expats renting a car + driver. And it's kinda fun for a week, and kinda crap after that!
The China numbers are totally fucked but hardly anyone's can be trusted. Everyone has different testing regimes, the US had hardly done any testing (proportionately) before they had community transmission - some cases are still only testing hospitalised patients.
That's what Bloomfield said today - the fact the we are now testing much more but the number of cases is stable is good news and suggests that while it is out in the community not to a massive extent.
When I discussed ANZAC Day with a mate of mine (via Skype) a few days ago, his youngest girl heard it and suggested that everyone should put a poppy on the bear they have in front of their window (she still counts them every day on their daily walk around the block). It was very cute to hear an 8-year-old actively think about it, this way.
