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

Mixed-up Words

We all have days where our brain doesn’t quite process words the way it should. Some recent examples of our brain mix-ups for your enjoyment: 

Miss Flora when she discovered pockets on the back of her jeans:
‘I’ve got bums on my pockets!’

Me describing the discipline during my school days to the kids’ school principal:
‘The girls got the ruler and the boys got the principal.’

What I was trying to say was that the boys got the cane from the principal. No wonder he just looked at me with his eyebrows raised!

And then there was Mr T’s mixed up moment:

‘Haste makes waste. What’s the answer?’ he asked me.

‘I don’t know,’ I replied as I approached the computer to see what game he was playing.

‘It’s a riddle. What’s the answer?’ he asked me again.

He was attempting to complete a word verification and the words he had to type in the box were ‘Haste makes waste’. Unfortunately, because it said ‘enter answer here’ next to the box, Mr T thought it was a riddle and that he had to put the answer in the box.
