14th-16th: I wrapped up this 11-night stay in Auckland with two more Kids For Kids shows in South Auckland. Performing in the Vodafone Events Centre in Manukau is always a pleasure. The choirs were great and the audiences happy.
18th: Our Christmas tree went up at home. Too early? Pfft. What are you ... Scrooge?!
20th: Back in Wellington, I was Master of Ceremonies for the Hutt City Council's Big Backyard event. This was a free outdoor showcase of local businesses and organisations which proved a hit with community on such a fine day.
24th-25th: Back to Auckland to compere the two day NZ Respiratory and Allergy Conference at the Pullman Hotel. I learned so much about a subject I speak a lot about in schools. It was truly eye opening to see how much good research was being done by doctors, scientists, and specialists in this field. On the morning of the 25th we all woke up to headline news about 'Thunderstorm Asthma' in Australia. Having expert people in the room who could speak about that upsetting phenomenon was very informative.
27th: Back to Wellington, I was the MC for the New Zealand Defence Force Christmas Party in Trentham! This was a great family event, and the military vehicles they had on display were very popular with the kids!
29th: I then flew up to Tauranga for the final Kids For Kids show for 2016 which went swimmingly. I was also fortunate to appear in a new music video by children's music legends, Itty Bitty Beats. Check out their video at the bottom of this post!
