WELL-BEING Fiona from The Local (Mt Maunganui) the cake and coffee house that sells out of 30 donuts in record time on their infamous Fridays tells me The Smoothie Club is back. I gotta wait till I’m not a breastfeeder as they (along with TEDxTauranga) like to start events at 545pm and 7pm respectively – an out of the question bed-time and boob-time for this mother of three. I sound bitter? Possibly. Definitely suffering from FOMO.
