Many New Zealanders are likely missing their mates right now, perhaps some people have even become better (or worse) friends with their flatmates during this time.

Meanwhile, at HUHA animal rescue Franklin the donkey and Fergus the lamb have become the unlikeliest of friends.

Legendary kiwi actor Sam Neill didn't know how to feel about Lego's decisions on this Jurassic Park set.

If you haven't received this look-request combo from a flatmate or family member are you really in lockdown?

A lot of people seem to be putting up with misbehaving kids in lockdown but troublesome pets provide a whole other problem.

RNZ reporter Ben Strang had to do some investigative journalism to get to the bottom of Mo's misdemeanors.

Like most of the country, Morning Report presenter Corin Dann is slipping well away from formal attire while working from home.

The roads might be quiet 10 days into lockdown but the birds haven't stopped singing in Te Whanganui-a-Tara.

Supermarket workers around the country are working hard to keep our shelves stocked and when they're stacking carrots like this I don't think anyone would argue they don't deserve a bit of praise.

Finally, if you think NZers are going a little bit crazy in lockdown, this Covid-19 update inspired Tik Tok should provide some comfort that the Aussies are a bit further down the rabbithole than we are.
