Does anybody know where I can buy Geckos (Skinks) or cheap lizards from in Christchurch?

I'm not talking about expensive ones like blue tounge lizards or bearded or anything that gets into the $100s , I'm just meaning like the ones I used to buy when I was a kid from a petshop for like $10 , I have rang a few shops but can't seem to find any.

Our kids have an aquarium and would love to look after a couple of geckos.

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?
