THIS SATURDAY will be our LAST SATURDAY in this building!! It's definitely the end of an era but the new venue (which opens the 27th Jan) has some awesome features we think you'll be excited about, including Air Conditioning (due to popular demand) and a new sound rig that will make the old one sound like a bee fart bouncing off wet pollen. Exciting times ahead but first we've got to see off the old venue in Bahama Hut fashion, see you SATURDAY

Three years ago Joseph Finau weighed over 200 kilograms and was on the verge of some serious health issues unless he made big changes to his lifestyle. He took it upon himself to turn his life around through strict dieting and exercise, now he's inspiring others to do the same. #TagataPasifika
Do you have some large marbles at home? Line a large plastic container with paper and drop on blobs of non-toxic paint. Put in marbles, then help your toddler to roll the marbles around by moving the container. Watch the artwork form before your eyes.
Remember to supervise your toddler with this activity.
Making a homemade storybook with your child is a great way to let them explore their imagination and see their ideas come to life. Ask your child to think of a main character then work together to create a story based around this character. Ask lots of open ended questions to help the story develop. Then create a book using blank A4 sheets of paper folded in half. Write the story out for them and draw and decorate some pictures together. They’ll love hearing their own story at bedtime.

Today was crazy socks day at my daughters school. Indiana decided to wear socks on her legs and her arms. But when we got to school she chickened out on wearing her arm socks. She said she didn't want to be different as no one else had arm socks on. We had a big talk about how it's okay to be different, that I loved her arm socks and her individuality and how boring life would be if we were all the same. Her reply "well I guess there aren't any other mums here doing drop off wearing a sequin mini skirt and velvet boots, so your different too mum". Haha smart kid. She wore the arm socks 💖
I want to thank everyone for their overwhelming support today. For the literally hundreds of messages and emails and texts and tweets, the vast majority of which have been humbling and kind.
Of course lots will be said in the media - rehashed and reinvented - that is to be expected. Everyone has their opinion.
Now I am looking forward to the future and being able to continue to pour energy and passion into good things. I am very much looking forward to joining the leadership team of management consultancy Stakeholder Strategies with Dr Rick Boven.
This is not the time for farewells - I will be in Parliament and serving my electorate for another another six months or so. But I can't let the day pass without noting the amazing contribution and support of the New Lynn Labour Electorate Committee and my dedicated office staff. Thanks to all - of all sides - who give so much of themselves to make our country a better, fairer and more equitable place.
Children who are connected to nature will want to enjoy it and save it, now and in the future. Nature play is fun for toddlers and free. Some cities even have nature playgroups and kindergartens, does your city have these?
Tonight's Amorangi feature is a story about two sisters Maani and Sarah Waititi who are performers for Te Matatini defending champions Te Whānau a Apanui. They say that their Nanny and Pāpā are the reason they are passionate about their iwi and group.
