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

The Importance of Communication

Even after eight years of marriage, omitting a word or two from a conversation can result in an injury. It’s never safe to assume that your partner knows you so well that they know what you’re thinking, even when (in my opinion) it’s obvious.

I was about to start cutting Mr T’s hair with the hair clippers when I realised that his chair was a little too far away from where the clippers were plugged in, so I asked him to stand up. He stood and I moved the chair to the left, thinking that he’d realise that I’d moved it (it made an obvious ‘chair moving across floor’ sound as I moved it). I was still checking the cord length when I said, ’Okay, sit back down.’

As I turned to face Mr T, he sat, right where he was standing, so he missed the chair and landed on the floor!

Oops… :)
