Are San Churro churros still vegan? I’ve heard rumours that they aren’t – that they and the hot chocolate contain eggs! Yikes! I had to check that out.
At around 1.30pm on Friday I jumped off the 86 tram just before it turned into Gertrude Street. I had an appointment in East Melbourne, but realised I had some time to kill, and I hadn’t eaten since 6am. Luckily I was in Fitzroy, because I needed to find vegan food, fast!
Here’s a very quick rundown of a restaurant I hardly ever hear about – Papasito in High Street, Northcote.
Most people wouldn’t need to be begged or nagged to go to a South Pacific island, but I did. I had so many reasons not to go, that it’s taken my husband, B, almost 25 years to get me to Rarotonga in the Cook Islands – but I’m glad I finally made it, and now I can’t wait to go back!
It’s seems like I’ve been missing in action for the last few months. It’s been crazy! I had a milestone birthday, left a job I’d been happy in for 11 years and started a new job working longer hours.
And that was just me! My daughter left school and started a fantastic new course and our dog had some health problems and needed lots of vet visits and special care (he’s fine now).
Throughout that time I had lots of ideas for blog posts, but I just never had the time or energy for writing, until now.
It might seem like I’ve been a really slack blogger lately, but I have a good excuse, honestly!
A few months back I started to have some ‘digestive issues’. (I’ll spare you the details.) They were recurrent, appeared suddenly, and meant that I’ve missed about 7 days of work in the last few months.
The GP, the gastroenterologist and I were all stumped. The ‘episodes’ didn’t seem to relate to anything I ate and all test results had come back negative. Finally I asked my GP if I should see a dietitian…
Every year we go away in early January, and every year it’s freezing cold. This year, we thought we’d be very clever and organise a short break at the end of January instead. After all, everyone knows the hottest weather happens just as the kids go back to school! So we’ve just come back from 3 days in Lorne and…it was just as cold as our early January holidays!
