Countdown and plastic

On a recent hot day I did my large amount of shopping at Countdown and got to the counter where I got a serve for not bringing my bags. Never mind - they were in the boot of my car and I didn't feel like going and getting them. I would just put everything in the trolley after they'd been scanned and paid for, and wheel out all the loose groceries to my car and pack them there.

Checkout lady not happy about that. Wanted the bags or I could buy some more. So a futile discussion ensued about how the plastic shopping bags were not single use but very useful indeed, but all the meat packaging and wrapped cucumbers and so on were single use packaging. Ah the customer is never right. So I won't be back.

Then today I get a card in my letterbox from Countdown about Weetbix and it had been through the Post Office so there wouldn't be non-delivery through it being junkmail and it was wrapped in single use plastic!! My last dealings with Countdown is to phone them on Monday and cancel my one card.

Dear Parents

I realise that it is close to the end of year, but I offer a private tutoring service for students in primary and intermediate schools during the term times in the afternoons and also during holidays to keep students focussed and up to date. I have 14 years experience as a primary and intermediate school teacher.

This is private 1 on 1 tutoring - Q: What does this mean?
A: 100% attention all the time, as opposed to periodic attention in expensive, mass tutoring institutions. Starting from a *promotional* $30 for half hour sessions after school or during the holiday times. These may extend to longer sessions if you so wish.

What it may entail for your child:
- All child-led lessons covering what the student finds lacking in their learning. Tutor assisted and facilitated to bring them up to speed with peers or curriculum requirements.
- Ascertaining what is needed to achieve their goals.
- Filling the gap in maths, reading and writing skills.
- Extension for those who need to be challenged.

What is important to allow learning to happen?
- Relationship forming to ensure a trusting and learning environment.
- The right outlook and attitude to want to improve.
- Self-motivation and perseverance.
- Inspiration and encouragement.
- Intrinsic and self-made choices to follow interests.

This is all encouraged and worked on in lesson times.

Email me at: smit.redbaron@gmail.com
or go to
Facebook - www.facebook.com... to book a lesson.
or
Call me on: 0274756429

Looking forward to the opportunity as to why I became a teacher and that is to bring out the best in your child.

Sincerely
Justin Smit - Private Tutor
Based in Havelock North

Desk for converting/upcycling

Rebekah from Saint Leonards

I have this desk that I was going to upcycle, either by restoring its side panel (I still have the parts of the desk that are detached) or by chopping off the extra top and doing them up as a set of drawers.
But I'm a chronic renal patient and I don't have the energy for that. So if there… View more
I have this desk that I was going to upcycle, either by restoring its side panel (I still have the parts of the desk that are detached) or by chopping off the extra top and doing them up as a set of drawers.
But I'm a chronic renal patient and I don't have the energy for that. So if there are any avid upcyclers on here that want to breathe new life into this piece to use themselves or on-sell, then give me a bell and she's all yours.

VHS tapes - for the artist, props builder, the nostalgic, theatre

Rebekah from Saint Leonards

They're mainly for arts and crafts, using the magnetic tape in mixed media works, the tape as a whole in sculpture. I was going to do a big Afro Samurai portrait.

But I'm no Erika Iris Simmons (have you SEEN her magnetic tape art? Gosh, it's brilliant! I'll include a picture of her more 'simple' works for reference. You should Google Image search her, you won't be disappointed!) Anyway, I have my hand in too many hobbies, so I shall pass this on to someone who has more creative energy than me.
So, free boxes of tapes to any one who wants to try their hand at some funky art.
Or maybe you want to add some to your props department for all those retro scenes set 10-30 years ago.
Or use them as building blocks with your children/grandchildren as a metaphor for building new things out of the relics of a bygone age. (Speaking of children, apparently young children LOVE these, just unreeling them seems to give them so much joy, you can do this before you artify them)
Maybe you even still have a player and want to attempt to watch these, I won't judge.
