Yana’s Yarn 24 October 2017

My phone rings a lot, but recently it has been ringing even more as I get call after call from my friends in Canada.
I say the word ‘friends’ very loosely as they’re not actually my friends, they’re scammers. I don’t think they’re even from Canada.
I picked up once, and they began their spiel about my second income, which I promptly said I wasn’t interested in- I don’t know if that was the correct answer, but afterwards I hung up. Since then they’ve called me close to once a day, which isn’t much to the amount of calls other people get, I’ve heard. However every time they call it’s with a different number, which makes it hard to block. Instead, I don’t answer and hope that eventually they’ll give up.
We hope you had a great Labour Day and kept out of trouble! It’s the last public holiday until Christmas, which as of Tuesday is 62 days away. (Apologies if you prefer to live in ignorance while it approaches).
I spent my day off braving the traffic and headed down to the Coromandel. It was nice to go exploring, but like the rest of Auckland, we all had the same idea of going away for the weekend!
The weekend before, I headed off on another roadie (clearly one of my favourite things to do), to celebrate my friend, Kylie’s hens party. There was plenty of laughter and fun and Taupo really didn’t know what hit it. I also played photographer for a few tourists at the #LoveTaupo sign. I’m glad all the times of taking photos for the paper has paid off!
Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
