Lockdown/Rahui  again…

We’re in Level 3 for 12 days because of a new cluster of Coronavirus cases detected  in Auckland City,  and  since  a few cases in Tokoroa and Rotorua.  The whole country has been put into Level 2:  https://covid19.govt.nz/covid-19/alert-system/alert-level-2 Here in Auckland, we feel for the smaller shops and cafes that can’t afford to become delivery […]

1. In the south…Whakatū-Nelson

On 22 June we took off to the South Island for 10 days, to catch up with friends and explore an area we hadn’t visited for some years- Whakatū (Nelson) and Mohua (Golden Bay).  Of course, we were doing our patriotic duty too, at PM Jacinda’s suggestion, supporting AirNZ and a range of small businesses […]

Living in Level One …Catching Up with Whanau, Friends and Photos..

Our government’s success in managing Covid-19 has meant we were able to move from Rahui Level 3 to  Level 2 on 14 May, and to Level 1  (life as “normal” except for closed national borders) at midnight on Monday 8 June. Emerging from Rahui Level 3 enabled us to spend a few days of blissful […]

Covert Covid Creativity…

Tanya…. The first four weeks of our Rāhui (Lockdown) seem to have whizzed by.  I haven’t completed any of the practical chores on my “to-do” list, but have enjoyed the opportunities to create in unexpected ways. My computer crashed, and it took a week to get it to our Earthsong expert Grant, who fixed it […]

Covid Vibes Day 0

On Thursday 26 March 2020 Aotearoa  went into full lockdown/ rāhui as a nation to try and prevent the spread of the Covid19 Virus.  Basically, that means we must stay at home for at least the next four weeks; we are allowed to walk or cycle in our own neighbourhoods as long as we keep […]
