Hi everyone,
I'm working on a travel story for Stuff about the things that have surprised returning Kiwis about New Zealand. If you have recently returned from overseas or know someone who has, it would be great to hear about the things that have stood out for you, for better or for worse. Whether it's to do with the weather, the cost of things, the public transport, the food, the housing, the people or something else entirely, we'd be keen to hear about it. Please remember that your comment may be included in the article, unless you say you don't want it to be. Thank you.

Want some free empty egg cartons?

Prior to lockdown I was able to pass on empty egg cartons to go an organisation that has chickens, so have been keeping these to one side, but that option is no longer available. So thought I'd see if there was any one else able to make any use of egg cartons before they go in the recycling, I have about 10 to give away (not all shown in photo).

Most would hold 12 eggs, but there are for 10 or 6.

Pick from the CBD (near YMCA on Pitt St).

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
