I really shouldn't make big plans for the school holidays, they always get scuppered. Last summer, I put my back out. This summer I developed stomach issues that needed kick ass antibiotics and painkillers *sighs*
One thing I hadn't taken into account was that in removing gluten from my diet I also removed the easiest source of fibre in wholewheat. Being stressed for the last few months at work followed by being lazy about my holiday eating habits (not enough fruit n veg and too many 'treats') resulted in a bit of a collapse. I had an infected colon. Abdominal pain akin to labour pain isn't fun! But I'm nearly back to normal, with a mission to consciously watch my fibre intake. I'm hoping it was a temporary issue fixable by diet and not the long term diagnosis of diverticulitis my GP suggests :-(
So I've been taking it easy, just doing a few wee bits n pieces of painting and sorting out stuff. Today I finished waxing my chalk painted kitchen cupboard doors. And as a reward I baked myself some scones. Not from scratch but from this mix that's been in the store cupboard for ages. I added Pure sunflower spread and some sheep's yoghurt to the mix. I had some with my lovely mum's raspberry jelly. They were really tasty!
