We had been deliberating on if we would spend our self-isolation period in Port Waikato. While we were at Level-2 I had thought that we would have a period of time (eg. a week or 2) before we moved to lockdown. Given the rapid escalation to level 4 it ended up being a very last minute decision to make the move given we had to be in our ‘home’ location by midnight. We rapidly packed 2 cars to the brim in just under 2 1/2 hrs, including food, clothes, work/study equipment and all other ‘essential’ provisions (like the coffee machine!) and headed south. Unfortunately we had to leave the washing machine and got to PW in the nick of time, reflecting how lucky we are to be in a situation where we are able to have choices like this.
