Or should the money go somewhere else? What are your thoughts on this?

Hi neighbours!
I am a responsible, reliable and very trustworthy nanny/ babysitter. I would love to be of help to any family in need of a babysitter, nanny or mothers helper.
I have a friendly, kind and caring nature and love children! I'm currently Enrolled for a bachelor of social work at the University of Auckland starting next year. The area I'm most interested in is child welfare which is why I feel babysitting/ nanny roles are perfect for me as it gives me a chance to strengthen my knowledge by working with children.
I hold experience in childcare and babysitting and can provide references from families on request. I have a very flexiable schedule, so can be available to work most hours needed (short or long) including additional hours in the school holidays or if children are home sick. I have experience working with busy family's with multiple children, from general supervision, doing homework, making dinner and putting the kids to bed.
I've worked with children from babies to school age and can also be a mothers helper for new or busy mums. I can drive myself, I have my own car and a clean restricted licence. Happy to chat more if you think I could be a good fit for your family.

It’s very disappointing to find out one of my flatmate start working at our local supermarket (NEW WORLD) as checkout operator , they (checkout operator) are not allowed to drink water while they working,
They allowed to drink water only in their breaks .
As I worked in supermarket more than 5 years
And sometimes if it’s busy we can’t take our breaks up to more than 3 hours .
And the more disappointing to hear if anybody keep water bottles with them on checkout the senior staff throw water bottles in rubbish.

I am interested to know your views on the people who serve and assist with your grocery shopping, if they drink few sip of water on checkout would you mind ?
Especially if the work required so much talking
And grocery lifting would you able to perform while you thirsty ?
There argument to stop allowing drink water on checkout is purely stupid I don’t want to go down that path if anybody interested I can provide more details
Thanks

Hey neighbours,
Beaches, outdoor dining areas and urban centres will be stamped smokefree from November, under the city's Smokefree Policy.
Auckland Council approved the policy on Tuesday to increase the number of smokefree outdoor spaces.
What do you think? Has this been a long time coming? Are you a smoker who enjoys having a cigarette on the beach or while you're dining outside? Or do you think smoking in the city should be banned altogether?

Dear Friends,

We proudly promote and develop cross-border educational exchanges and establish Sister School relationships between top schools in both NZ and China. We have had a total of 300 Kiwi students visiting their Chinese sister schools in the past year, and the Chinese families provided outstanding hosts to the visitors. When the Chinese students visit NZ, they will stay in host families for ten days for the entire visit to experience the 100% pure kiwi lifestyle and culture. We hope families can prepare three meals and transportation each day for the students. In return, you will receive $280 per week per student.

Feel free to contact us if you are keen to host at student_service@aedut.com or 09-368 1231.
