I’m on holidays and enjoying winding down from what can only be described as a crazy-busy year. We’re hosting Xmas lunch tomorrow, so there is a lot of prepping going on right now.

Thanks to everyone who has popped into Diabetogenic this year. You have no idea how much your love and support means as I try to navigate diabetes and all that it throws at me. I started this blog to connect with people and I am so lucky to have achieved that.

While it has been a tough year in some ways, it’s also been a wonderful one. I realise each and every day how fortunate I am to be constantly delighted and challenged and surprised by the work I do. The diabetes world is indeed diverse and I really love getting to play in this space.

I’ll be in and out for the next few weeks – mostly out. I am looking forward to spending time with my beautiful family, trying to stay cool in what looks to be a blistering summer and recharging my somewhat exhausted batteries.

But I’ll be back in full swing in 2016. May your festive season be truly magical and bright. My love and wishes to you all.
