Living for others is a rule of nature. We are all born to help each other. No matter how difficult it is.

As a nation, we recently held a moving ANZAC Day commemoration. So now is a good time to reflect on how we treat our military personnel during and after their service. It speaks volumes about who we are as New Zealanders.

Let’s not leave those who serve our country behind.

Can New Zealand do more to ensure that past, present and future service people - and their whānau – are recognised and supported?

If you were one those who turned to baking to get through lockdown - and even if you weren't! - thought I'd kick off by sharing the two most popular recipes on Stuff during those seven weeks: pull-apart hot cross bun bread, a recipe from Nicola Galloway, and cheese straws, a recipe from Sam Mannering. Let me know what you cooked in lockdown too.

Take a look at what the housing market was doing around New Zealand for April 2020. 🏠
Here’s some interesting figures evolving from Covid-19 lockdown. Marlborough was one of four regions in the country that had the largest decrease in the total properties for sale compared to the same time last year, -44.2% from 382 to only 213 for April. This was 169 fewer homes for sale. Don’t hold off selling, now could very well be your, window of opportunity, with low stock levels and active buyers in the market place needing homes. To set the wheels in motion........
