Kia Ora Neighbours!
I hope all whanau are keeping well and looking after themselves - Lock down is hard enough, but with tamariki running around and the ever-changing weather it is sometimes a challenge to come up with ways to keep everyone happy (and busy).
It’s a beautiful day here in Wellington and hopefully you all have spaces outside your homes where you can take your family bubbles to enjoy the sun!
When you are back inside again, we have some easy Play-dough, Cornflour paint and bath bomb recipes for you to try.
Take care and Keep safe

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?
Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.
New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

I know, most people like sunshine and blue skies. For me as a photographer, however, the strong winds and waves of the last few days are much more interesting.
