Learning more about diabetes for wha¯ nau
Hi everyone. I hope you are all doing well and have had a great week.
I think I may have mentioned in a previous column that Christmas is now just around the corner and I want to be on to it when it comes to Christmas presents this year.
And this week I have started doing just that!
I have started to plan presents for people and to go out and buy them.
My friends are pretty sorted and I found it easy to come up with ideas for them.
However, I have a bit of a dilemma in that I have absolutely no idea what to get for my mother and partner.
It feels like I have got into the rut of giving my mother the same sorts of presents over the last couple years, while my partner is not one who is big on Christmas and gift-giving but this will be our first Christmas together.
Do you ever have trouble coming up with present ideas for people? And if you have any ideas you could pass on to help a girl out, feel free to flick me an email at email@example.com
This week I found out more about the Wha¯ nau Day being held in Rotorua for diabetes, as well as learn more about diabetes itself.
It is certainly alarming that both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are on the rise.
For a fun family day out, along with the chance to learn more about this disease, head along to the World Diabetes Wha¯ nau Day next week.
It was also great to find out who the speakers are for the next ARTSMAD session.
There is so much inspiration and so many talented people in our city working on all sorts of projects. It is great to be able to celebrate that.
To find out more about who will be speaking in the upcoming event check out the story on the next page.
There are plenty more great things to read about in this week’s edition so I’ll let you get reading.
Don’t forget to keep those thumbs ups and downs and reader’s photos rolling in.
Take care, until next time.
