Yana’s Yarn – 14 August 2018

What amazing weather we’ve been having recently. It was nice to get out and enjoy the sun! And get my washing on, which is a sign of adulthood when you spend the days cleaning and doing loads of washing. I also went for a run. It became a bit of a walk, but I got out there. I did the […]

A note from Jess – 17 July 2018

Yana’s been away the last four days so I’ve been given the task of trying to fill her shoes! And lets say, they’re not the easiest to fill! It sure has made me appreciate the great work she (and the rest of the team) does each week! For those who don’t know me I am a 19 year old that […]

Yana’s Yarn— 10 July 2018

I was chatting with some friends last week about the power of words. We could all recall moments where people had spoken into our lives with passion and encouragement. Likewise we could also recall moments where negative words had been spoken to us or about us. Realising that we could remember both the good and the bad we decided where […]

Yana’s Yarn 30 June 2018

On my travels to the supermarket recently, I have noticed a lot of people using their recyclable bags. It’s cool to care for the environment and do our best to reduce waste. And it’s okay if you take another supermarket’s recyclable bag to a competing supermarket. At least you’re making a difference. (Speaking to myself here). Even opting out of […]

Yana’s Yarn – 12 June 2018

Without sounding like a broken record, and being 100 per cent honest, as nothing exciting has happened to me this week, I’ll chat about Wellington again. I went to the Gallipoli exhibition at Te Papa and if you haven’t been yet, definitely take a visit there before it finishes in April 2019. It was so well done, so informative and […]

Yana’s Yarn – 05 June 2018

It was my birthday on the weekend, and it was lovely. I only said, “You too,” to someone who wished me Happy Birthday once, so all in all it was a success. I could start the yarn on failed birthday presents of years past, but we’ll save that for another time. However, apparently my mum was stoked when my sister […]

Yana’s yarn – A day in the life of a Waiuku Mudlark…

After running stories on the Mudlarks and all the incredible work they’re doing, we decided we should practice what we preach and get involved. So, last Tuesday 22 May, I chucked on my brand new gumboots headed to the estuary where the Mudlarks have set up while they clear the mangroves. Tony Ogilvie gave me some gloves and a brand new […]

Yana’s Yarn – 22 May 2018

I, along with thousands, maybe millions of others watched the Royal wedding over the weekend. I’d like to say I was invited, but really, I was just invited to watch it. Our viewing party sat down with some delicious baking, wore our nicest pyjamas, and watched Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tie the knot. It was such a beautiful ceremony, […]
