Wow, my old neighbourhood is going to be 30km/h very soon.
That's going to put a crimp into the speed racers, that and those damn awful speed humps!
Maybe we should start looking for a horse or 2 along with grazing grounds & stables - all very eco friendly 😂😂

Water restrictions

Ronald from Massey

Dear council, I haven't washed my car since you told us we were short of water. You also told us you were ordering restrictions, fair enough. However do you want to explain to me why I have just driven down Lincoln Rd in Henderson and saw that the wash depot. A commercially run vehicle wash … View moreDear council, I haven't washed my car since you told us we were short of water. You also told us you were ordering restrictions, fair enough. However do you want to explain to me why I have just driven down Lincoln Rd in Henderson and saw that the wash depot. A commercially run vehicle wash station is fully operational, every wash bay was full with happy citizens cleaning their vehicles. Did you all go to the same school as the halfwits that have advised us on social distancing and other ways to manage Covid. Or is it one rule for some and another for the rest of us. Either we are short of water or we aint.

Eggs any way, anytime

Emma Reporter from Stuff Cooks

During lockdown, there was no leftover my family wouldn’t crack an egg onto and eat for breakfast: leftover mash, leftover chicken pot pie, the last dribbles of a batch of ham hock soup and once, a lamb chop.

Eventually “Eggs & Anything” infiltrated dinner and our standards dropped even lower: the skillet was dumped on the table along with a pile of forks, a few side plates - maybe, a tea towel as a napkin for the 8-year-old with the large lockdown appetite and away we went.

Lazy egg suppers have hung around in Alert Level 2 - minus the dinner dregs and skillet table service, and with the addition of an actual recipe: Turkish eggs, spicy red shakshuka and spiced bread egg in a hole.

Eggs, dukkah and garlic fried spinach is another favourite combo in our house. What's your favourite?

Greedy Watercare🚿😒

Well, the May water bill has landed in our email.
Each month we analyse it to see where or if we can save money and/or water.
What we noticed this month was the last time we got an actual reading was way back in February. The following 3 months have been estimated.
All of the estimated readings were based from our summer usage, when we were watering our gardens.
So, my questions are, "At what point does our usage and payments level out? Will they be paying us for the month of June & July, especially as we have significantly been reducing our water usage over the last few months?"
I understand that lockdown was the reason for the first 2 months estimated readings, however May should've been an actual reading.
It really comes across as if Watercare are bleeding us financially dry, and all the while we are all doing our best to reduce and save.
