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

Wrapping My Own Presents

Every year I take advantage of the July toy sales. I grab some bargains and put them away for Christmas and the next round of kids’ birthdays, so the only gift buying I need to worry about for the next twelve months is the adults. 

I was in my bedroom wrapping a couple of them when Tomboy knocked on the door and asked if I was wrapping her presents.

‘No,’ I replied.

She then asked whose presents was I wrapping. I knew that she thought she’d be able to come in and look if they weren’t hers, so I told her I was wrapping my own presents.

‘Can I come and watch?’ she asked.

‘No, because then I’ll know what I’m getting,’ I replied, thinking that she would catch on pretty quick and tell me I’d know anyway if I was wrapping them.

Tomboy’s reply: ‘It’s okay, I won’t tell you what they are.’
