Whether you’re reading this because you’re gluten intolerant, suffer from PVFS or CFS, are starting to grow your own veggies, embracing natural and/or alternative remedies, or just want to enjoy the journey with us, please remember I’m not a medical expert, nor am I here to debate global warming. Being diagnosed with a life-changing illness, looking for answers or changing the way one lives can all be overwhelming events, so I hope that by sharing the triumphs and tragedies, you too will benefit in some way from our journey.

I hope you enjoy the journey and if you leave this blog having learnt only one new recipe or started to think about finding your star, then this blog’s purpose has been served.

My two favourite sayings:
Pondering the choices we make at the crossroads is like revision in the school of life. Regretting the mistakes or taking for granted the successes means we have learnt nought.
An attentive student will gain wisdom from the mistakes and joy from the successes. Cartillyer – 2008

Careful What You Wish For!

Yesterday was one of the best Mother’s Days that I’ve ever had. I was surprised because I was expecting a woeful one since I’m still weighed down by severe fatigue and nausea from my latest sinus infection.

After enjoying breakfast in bed, I spent most of the day in my recliner where I received some wonderful gifts – jewellery, CD, DVD, books and a bottle of Frangelico. The Apprentice cooked a yummy pumpkin soup for lunch, and brought a scrumptious gluten-free cake. She also brought a gluten-free baguette that had the same taste and texture as real bread. It was so much like real bread that every time I ate a mouthful I asked her if she was sure it was gluten-free. 

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Mother’s Day without the younger children providing me with some blogger moments. 

Despite visiting the Mother’s Day stall at school at different times and having no idea what the other one had bought, Boywonder and Tomboy bought me the same thing. They put a lot of thought into their gifts. It seems I should be careful what I wish for when watching Harry Potter movies. 

There is a scene where Molly Weasley casts a spell and the dish brush starts doing the dishes by itself and I said, ‘I wish I had that!’ (Referring to the spell.) Despite it being many months ago, the children remembered it, and thus, both bought me a dish brush!

Tomboy was also very excited when Mr T put together one of my other presents – a tiered plant stand – and stood it against the garage wall. Assuming it was a step ladder, she exclaimed, ‘Cool, now Mummy can reach the garage roof to get all the pegs and toys we threw up there!’

Happy Mother’s Day ladies. I hope it was as wonderful and as full of bloggable moments as mine was.
