Hello 2019

Good bye 2018, and for the most parts good riddance. Although not as horrid as 2015 ( my annus horribilis if you will) there are some parts of last year that I’m glad to be leaving behind us.

That said it’s not been all bad- I’ve also learnt to ride the ups and downs and go with the flow more. We also made some great memories as a family, and things like this little blog have continued to grow which amazes and excites me all at the same time.

Also we have made another year without having to use an epi pen on mini me. It came close ( cheers mr insect) but never the less a year without an anaphylactic shock is always a positive, especially as we’ve all had the epi- pen shortage issues as well, I was like a bloodhound at one point trying to track one down.

Other positives are we had a great family holiday, fabulous days out and plenty of fun in the glorious summer heat wave.

My little blog- this little blog that I started a few months after L’s first reaction, has grown, and continues to grow with followers which amazes and humbles me at the same time. Thank you to you all.

This year I’d like to obviously carry one with my usual content of recipes, advice and the odd review but I’d like to share with you all a bit more about our lives, how we manage Type 1 diabetes, Coeliac disease and food allergies, a bit about what we all get up to, and why ( for my own sanity) I think I’m going to start a bullet journal. Well try to anyway.

So there we go, thank you for sticking with me- now let’s see what 2019 has to offer.

Over and out for now xx

Happy New Year

Well hello 2018. Whilst I’m not one for gushing posts I’d love to take the opportunity to wish all my friends, family, bloggers and followers a very Happy New Year.

I’m humbled to think my follower numbers and view are increasing, something I hope continues throughout the new year. We now have dairy free to contend with, so you and expect more recipes and reviews etc to incorporate this. As always if I can offer any advice regarding allergies and diet then feel free to send me a message. You are never alone, there’s always someone who will listen.

2017 proved challenging for us in some places. Health wise family members have suffered. Mini me started school- this is a milestone for all parents, but navigating food allergies in the mix as well requires lots of planning. We now flexi- school ( expect more posts on this) this means part home education and part school. I’ll add allergies were not the reason for this decision, and so far it’s proving to be the right choice. We are looking forward to our new challenges in 2018 and ready to face it full on.

All that’s left to say is I hope the hangovers recover soon, and bring it on 2018, we are ready for you.

Happy New Year

Well hopefully you have woken up fresh as a daisy on this New Year’s Day, if not ease yourself in gently and I hope the hangover subsides quickly. 

  
I’d just like to take the time to wish you all a Happy New Year.  I’d like to thank all my lovely followers for their support and positive words over the last year, I’m very humbled.  This little blog is growing I’m popularity and it fills me with joy that it might be helping others in similar situations as ourselves. 

This year little one will start school ( something I’m dreading if I’m honest – from an allergy perspective anyway) so expect some posts on how we get on. In fairness I’m sure mini me will love it, she seems to take everything in her stride. 

In other news there is the Allergy Blog Awards ceremony in February which we are looking forward to. You never know we may ever win an award ( there’s a sentence I never thought I’d be typing).  All exciting I’ll keep you posted on how my posh frock hunting is going. 

There will be more recipes posted this year to, and as part of resolution I’m hoping to dedicate a bit more time to creating more ideas and dishes to share with you all.  

So there you have it, a quick post I know but I wish you all the best for 2017, I hope it brings you all lots of laughs, love and success. X 

Happy New Year 

As I sit here writing this, I’m sure a few of you are nursing sore heads, and swearing never to drink again. I have a toddler so we stayed in and had friends over so I’m raising a glass of bubbly now to the new year.

2015 was, for many reasons, probably one of my worst to date! I lost 8 weeks over late spring with my father being very ill and my daughters’ allergies coming to a head. It’s been a year of learning and adjustments. Learning about living with food allergies and letting little one have a normal childhood seemed daunting but wasn’t that bad. In fairness it helped a lot me being coeliac and my partner is a type 1 diabetic. I find its other people that make big deals about her allergies, I have to admit I wish they wouldn’t as I really do not want her getting a complex over her diet.

I love a new challenge, hence this blog. My friends will all tell you I’m not that techy but I decided to challenge myself with starting a blog- best idea I had for a while. The blogging community is great, I’ve gained followers and friends. My confidence is growing as to are my posts and style, all things I never really thought I’d even like doing.

So what are my plans for 2016….. Well to grow my blog further, experiment with new ideas and recipes. Get married to my best friend (October incase you were wondering) and have more fun everyday with my crazy little monkey (averting the odd diva strop as we go).   So Happy New year, I hope you all have a great one.
