So here we are again, at lockdown level 4 for the whole of New Zealand for three days, Auckland and The Coromandel possibly seven days. One community case was found in Auckland, and this morning I see four new cases have been identified, all, as we suspected, the Delta strain. It is just 12 days to what would have been six consecutive months without a community case, with the last one reported on 28 February.
Level 4 means essentially that everything closes except pharmacies, food outlets (supermarkets and some other food shops), staying at home – well you know the drill. So no report today on a new cafe in town, no report on our first burger in the Burger Wellington section of Wellington on a Plate…but really, what is more important at the end of the day?
I have a good book to get on with today (I’ll be joining in Friday’s What’s On Your Bookshelf challenge), a lot of housework to get on with (or not as the case may be), and I’ll be working from home on Thursday and Friday.
Go on a virtual tour of Malmö in Sweden thanks to Call me Cupcake.
Or get your cat this table set….Charlie certainly wants one…(and no, he is not supposed to be on the table or ordering stuff online…).
You can even check out last week’s small pleasures blog post.
