And it's an Aucklander's fault if the virus gets out and about. I loathe this "othering" that is going on and that the PM seems to be encouraging. The south island/ the north island,...

Re: Good Uber eats Christchurch

Nope, Auckland hotels are full with recent returnees and people who have covid. They've run out of room for covid folk, so some can self-isolate at home now! Hence we were flown to Christchurch...

Question Good Uber eats Christchurch

Well basically what it says on the tin! Great places for grub that will deliver to the shithole that is the Sudima Hotel, Christchurch.

So I'm due to return to fly 'home' from Heathrow tomorrow evening, after a month in the north-west of England. I was sort of hoping for a positive Covid PCR test so that I could delay my return,...

Re: Covid testing prior to travelling to the UK and experiences of MIQ

Thanks so much for this information. I'm very sorry to hear about your mum. It's hard isn't it. My mum died last year during the first lockdown.

Re: Tendency amongst young American women to employ Vocal Fry

The latest annoying word for me and the OH is "look". We are noticing it a lot, with politicians and journalists starting a sentence with it.

Re: Coronavirus

Just to clarify, I haven't heard any rumours about 100% vaccination rate being required for anything to happen!! That would be an impossibility in any population.
