... there (for example, buying a house). The Whanau Ora does the research for the family such as the negotiating with banks, brokers,etc. By building capacity in families and working with the whole family, the idea is to wrap the family around the child and mother, rather than wrapping services around the child and parent.

... it increases, which pushes on my nerves. Apparently! It was another hard day and was glad to see 4.30pm. Stopped off at Mark's to grind and mentioned I didn't want to go back to the shed.

We take a walk around the town after lunch; hef buys some shoes as his flip flops are rubbing his feet and then we head back to the car. We get onto highway 1 for Hastings.
