Yana’s Yarn – 02 October 2018

Summer sports are about to kick off as I once again pull out the old football boots that haven’t seen the light of day since the last five aside season.   I received a message from my five aside manager, who also happens to be my younger brother. He’s gathering players for the season and I was lucky enough to make […]

Yana’s Yarn – 25 September 2018

The Mudlarks have finished one third of their work. Hours and hours have gone into clearing the Tamakae Estuary.   But that’s only the beginning. There’s more to go. And by the end of it, 75 hectares of mangroves will have been cleared.   It’s a mammoth effort. I got to be part of it… once. I probably cleared one tree away […]

Yana’s Yarn – 18 September 2018

 Last week I was discussing the extra curricular things we did as kids. It’s cool to see some of the sports, hobbies that kids have these days.

I started watching the Bachelor Australia last week. The flatties and I got together put on the tv and enjoyed a dose of not so real ‘reality’. We laughed at the irony of us sitting slumped in the lounge wearing track pants, hoodies and pyjamas while commenting on the girls’ hair, make up, dresses and personalities they portrayed. I can’t […]

Yana’s Yarn – 28 August 2018

NZTA came to Pukekohe last week to host a meeting about the Southern Corridor Improvements. It was interesting to hear what they had to say, and great to see a turnout of about 150 people. The fact of the matter is that the project will now take another year, with the expected finish date December 2019. We all understand that safety is the first concern, and the […]

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 […]
