Tonight, as I arrived home from my first day back at work, 2 boxes were awaiting...I eagerly brought them inside and opened them to reveal a lot more than what I was expecting.
I received - pancake mix, rice chips, muffin mixes, various vegan and gluten free curry mixes...
I´m looking forward to some experimenting with the products I don´t yet know, like the muffin mixes and the curries.
Thanks again Rachel and thanks to your sponsors too: Basco, Tasty Bite and Mamee.
I was diagnosed as "gluten intolerant" about 2 years ago and have felt much better since going Gluten-free. While on holiday, most of the time I had no option to eat what was given to me, and I also found that even in the big supermarkets in Portugal the choice of gluten free goods like flours, breads, pastas, etc, were non-existent. Of course going off-course had its effects - swollen tummy, constant heartburn (I would get up during the night to brush my teeth...) etc. So I´m now back to my normal diet, my stomach is back to flat but the heartburn is still there. It was a month of wrongdoing so I presume it will take a while to put right again!
As the title says - "second time lucky" - as not so long ago, I won a silk scarf painted by Gill from African Aussie blog. So this is my second win in a short time!!

I totally forgot to celebrate my 1st blog anniversary on the 18th June, but I was so busy travelling up and down the country, visiting family and friends that the date went unnoticed. So next year I will have to do something special.
Have a great week, enjoy the sun if it´s shining at your end or wrap up against the cold if you are living through the winter months like I am! Bbbrrrr... I don´t much like the cold!
