I have been reminded that it is a long time since I have written a blog and so am about to remedy the situation! Three weeks ago I decided to seriously do something about my bad tummy, general lethargy, bloatedness and weight. I am pretty active and it seemed odd that I was just piling on weight and feeling sort of unwell so after a it of internet diagnosis I decided I needed to give up caffeine and just possibly I might have some sort of food intolerance. I found a diet that seemed to make a bit of sense (not complete sense as I am still struggling with the concept of being able to eat anything with a face or that comes from something with a face but not at the same time as something that comes from the ground - ground things come in a separate meal - but I can have an egg salad - I think).

Next up is a suri wrap, flower hat and designing a shawl. I am also working on felting but that is going so badly I will leave a report on that until another day!
