Veggie Mama on the Road: The Spirit of Tasmania


This is a sponsored post for Spirit of Tasmania.  Q: What do you get when you cross two small children, one mum, and a giant ship that goes between Melbourne and Devonport, Tasmania?

Just Ace

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 4.34.22 pm

A few things I think are just ace. With apologies to Grinspoon. How we're almost halfway through December is beyond me. I actually don't know where this year has gone! It hasn't been an easy one, but I sort of didn't realise that when I was in it.

One foot is the baby, the other is the daddy. She makes them talk … [Read more...]
