Yesterday* I left the house! Yup. For the first time in over six weeks, I hopped in a car (!) and we drove (out of the gate on the road!) about 1-2minutes up the road to a quieter rural road. Mind-blowing, genuinely insanely exciting, riveting stuff. Who would have...read more
Here’s my personal recount of my experience during COVID-19. I write this so I can look back on it in the future and think wow, that sh*t was cray. I am so, so pleased it never happened again. Hola! Comin’ at ya from day-two of Level-3 in New Zealand!...read more
Here’s my personal recount of my experience during COVID-19. I write this so I can look back on it in the future and think wow, that sh*t was cray. I am so, so pleased it never happened again. In the first blog, I covered until approximately lockdown. Lockdown in New...read more
Kamo Kamo Soup | Kamo Kamo or Kumi Kumi is a New Zealand vegetable that is kind of like zucchini (courgette) crossed with squash or pumpkin. Fortunately for us in lockdown, they are thriving in the garden and growing non-stop. And they’re massive! We usually...read more
