I’m so sorry that I haven’t blogged for ages! We have been away – on our first ‘proper’ holiday since Jamie was diagnosed with celiacs disease last June. It is hard to believe that this time last year we had a very sad and ill little boy with permenant tummy aches, exhaustion and weight loss. He had a great holiday, no tummy aches at all, all the energy in the world, and although he is still of a very thin build, he is no longer skeletal!
Anyway, we went to the south coast of Devon (in the South West corner of the UK) and if you have never visited, you must! It is amazing. We stayed in our own self catering apartment so that we were in complete control of Jamie’s diet this first time, and that was lovely. He did like the ice-creams down there (we all did!) so we chose a quiet time to go the first time, and the man in the ice-cream shop was fantastic, letting us know which flavours had gluten in and which didn’t. After that, we went every day, and Jamie wasn’t at all bothered about eating from a tub instead of a cone, although I think in future I might find some gluten free cones to take with us.
Anyway, back to earth with abump. That was a long winded way of explaining why I haven’t blogged much lately. Many apologies and thanks for keeping coming back!
