Well it’s been a little while since I last blogged on here (understatement of the century!) but I thought I’d try and get back into the swing of things with a little update of how I’m doing.
As you’re aware, I’ve not been very well (which I blogged about briefly here). This all started back in March which began as suspected appendicitis which conveniently happened whilst in the middle of a flight to New Zealand.However after an embarrassing moment where doctors were called on board and an expensive stop at Singapore Hospital, I was finally diagnosed with ovarian cysts.
You’d have thought by now I’d have got it all sorted but sadly it’s got worse. I’ve been in constant pain everyday and to make matters worse, I have now been diagnosed with endometriosis, which is very, very painful. To help me manage the pain I’m having to take a crazy amount of painkillers, including the brain bashing Tramadol which has practically made me into a zombie! So you can imagine I just don’t have the energy to blog or bake – which has made me quite sad.
Although there is a silver lining in this sorry tale! I finally have an appointment to see a specialist which will hopefully mean I can have an operation and get this sorted. On another plus note, I have also got a back log of gluten free recipes, photos, reviews and restaurant updates, which I will upload as soon as I feel better

We all know what it’s like when we’re invited to a coffee date with a friend, you’re sat amongst tasty looking sandwiches and cakes, your tummy rumbling, knowing you can’t have any of them… but, things are about to change my gluten free chums because…
Genius has announced it’s partnership with Caffè Nero to supply their amazing and delicious gluten free rolls to almost 600 stores across the UK!
That means we can now enjoy tasty gluten free sandwiches whilst sipping on our coffee! It also means we can skip into any Caffè Nero branch and pick up a tasty sandwich on our lunch breaks!

Since I’ve not been blogging/tweeting lately, it seems like I miss out on all the news in coeliac world!
And it was only this morning when going through my tweets that I saw something that actually made me scream with delight – GLUTEN FREE WRAPS!
Yes, that’s right. Warbutons have brought out their own range of gluten free wraps and I’m pretty excited to try them!
Us coeliacs have not been lucky when it comes to gluten free wraps. Firstly we had those horrid, dry as leather, wraps from LoveMore (you can read my review here).
I even had a try at making my own gluten free wraps (recipe here) and although they were quite tasty – I missed the convenience of having already made ones.
Then Caliegh from Gluten Free[k] came to the rescue and showed us where we could order authentic Mexican gluten free corn tortillas from Mex Grocer.
But now, instead of ordering out gluten free wraps online, we can pick them up at our usual supermarket chains when we do our weekly shop! – HURRAY
For a more indepth review of the new gluten free wraps by Warbutons (and also have a nosey at their other gluten free products) check out the fabulous website: Gluten Free[k]
