Sooo I got a bit of flack for putting a Poached Egg recipe in Scrumptious. Apparently 'everyone knows how to do that!'. Well shit, I've only just perfected it - so I just assumed some people would appreciate a few tips. Seriously, a tidy egg puts you in a good mood for the rest of the day, I reckon!! Thanks to all the awesome people who have sent me success stories on that recipe. This is today's effort from me 🐔oh and would you like the 'recipe'?
Over the last few days my management and I have had to front up to my sponsors. Not surprisingly, Land Rover, who for good reason have zero tolerance towards drink driving, have ended their relationship with me. I understand this completely and am disappointed I put them in this position.
Agents selling Hunter Valley Station described it as “a living masterpiece with its grandeur and position overlooking Lake Hawea”. No wonder film scouts selected it for the filming of Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon in the Disney movie A Wrinkle in Time. But the Otago property, with 35 km of lake frontage, is now American owned - sold with the approval of the Overseas Investment Office. Another slice of New Zealand high country gone. Last year there were 87 sales of land to foreign interests, covering a gross land area of 362,132ha. New Zealand First wants the transfer of land to foreign ownership to stop.
Jeepers creepers 😣 - I really want to swear but I've done too much of that lately - so that will be the extent of my potty mouth in this post! The amount of people that now think I'm rolling in millions of dollars, or prancing around town splashing cash or posting with a "look at all my money" vibe, since selling my businesses is ridiculous! Pull ya bloody heads in and get a clue would ya. You don't know me, you don't know where I've come from, what I've done, how hard I've worked or what I've sacrificed- you don't even know the value of the sales, so quit with the assumptions and give me a break. And while you are at it unfollow me, de-friend me and move on - I know not everyone likes me and that's fine, just walk or scroll on by 👋 Now I'm taking 10 big breathes and going on a shopping spree! Jokes I'm going for a shower!
A big thank you to 9 year old Christchurch student Kieran for your very special poem! All the messages of support we have been getting are just amazing. Knowing this support is there will keep us going as firefighting crews continue the hard work to put this fire out.
