Yana’s Yarn— 17 April 2018

This week has been a tricky one—I’ve been in bed for most of it, stuck at home with the flu. I popped into work for a bit, only to be turned away. “Go home,” were the exact words, but being home is better than infecting work colleagues. I guess it’s the changing of the seasons, the tricky weather and after […]

Yana’s Yarn – 10 April 2018

Thanks to Facebook memories I can see (when I choose) what happened on each day since I joined the social media forum. Usually they’re embarrassing statuses from third form Yana writing about homework assignments, or letting people know that I was eating a pie… things haven’t changed much. However one popped up which was a great reminder for me. Last […]

Yana’s Yarn – 3rd April 2018

Welcome to April. It’s hard to believe that we’re already into the fourth month of the year. Hopefully that encourages you and doesn’t stress you out. I won’t tell you how many days until Christmas though. I read an interesting article about ‘sandpaper-gate’ over the weekend. If you haven’t heard, three of Australia’s national cricketers were caught instigating and tampering […]

Yana’s Yarn— 27 March 2018

Clocks go back at the end of the week, meaning winter is on the way. If you love the crisp air, frosty mornings, then enjoy the season. If you prefer the warmth, you can at least look forward to the extra hour of sleep we get on Sunday morning. I always find it hard wondering whether my phone has automatically […]

Yana’s Yarn— 20 March 2018

What a joyous week. There was plenty of greenery around for St Patrick’s Day and having an Irish last name myself, I was more than happy to join in the festivities. On Saturday night, we went out for a lovely birthday dinner for one of my friends, only to be caught up in the singing, dancing and entertainment from the […]

Yana’s Yarn—13 March 2018

Say the word ‘council’ and you’ll either zone out or the hackles will rise. Before you zone out, I want to write about having your say. It’s not all doom and gloom, and ignorance isn’t always bliss, especially when it comes to your life and your future. Auckland Council recently announced their 10 year budget and now they’re offering all […]

Yana’s Yarn— 6 March 2018

Earlier last week a package arrived at our office. After opening it, we discovered it was a box of chocolates from a local business just down the road from us. What a treat! The chocolates were accompanied with a card thanking Bossman Steve for referring them to a potential client. It was a little gesture that went above and beyond, […]

Yana’s Yarn—27 February 2018

Last Monday I spent the evening hanging out at the Pukekohe Volunteer Fire Brigade to chat to some of the team who will be heading up the Sky Tower. My seven year old self was remembering the time the local Levin brigade came to my primary school to talk about fire safety. I’d been sitting up nicely throughout the presentation […]

Yana’s Yarn—13 February 2018

I was one of the lucky ones who got Monday off as well as Tuesday and I spent most of my day watching the SuperBowl. Every year, I watch the NFL season at a distance, ready to jump on the bandwagon of the SuperBowl final and cheer for the underdogs. It’s a game that I slowly increase my knowledge of […]

Yana’s Yarn – 6 Februray 2018

Today, Tuesday 6 February is Waitangi Day. We celebrate the founding document that was signed on this day in 1840. While it is a public holiday, it’s important to remember the historic moment of New Zealand’s timeline. We’re a young nation in comparison to other countries, but our history is special.

In case you missed it: The Post Newspaper moved homes last week. We’re now located at 7 Hall Street, Pukekohe. It’s just around the corner from our old office, but still nice and central to Pukekohe. Our phones will be back on line this week, so if you haven’t been able to get in touch with us, we apologise. We […]
