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

How Do You Spell…

Now in his second year of school, Boywonder’s enthusiasm to learn new words is really blossoming. No matter where he is, he finds a bevy of words to learn. While we were in our bedroom getting the girls ready for bed, Boywonder went into the ensuite to use the toilet. 

Every now and then he’d call out the letters on a product and ask us what it spelled, and we’d call out the word.

Then he yelled out, ‘What does this spell? T-A-M-P-A-X.’

Mr T thought it was hilarious as he yelled back, ‘Tampax!’ because he thought that I was going to have to explain what they were.

Before Boywonder had a chance to ask, five-year-old Tomboy called out, ‘They’re for girls, you don’t need to know about them!’

We didn’t know that she knew about them!
