On Guard!

Well that's how I feel at the moment. The whole decontamination of the kitchen seems to be taking forever, and I seem to be in constant panic that someone is going to come along and undo my "clean" cupboard, that I just organised"! It's not that the family aren't getting on board with all this, and God knows, they must feel like wringing my neck, when I'm hovering over them, explaining cross contamination for the seventy third time that morning. In fact I think I can see them rolling their eyes even when they have their backs to me!!!
Breaking the habit of a lifetime doesn't come easy after a couple of weeks of going GF, and I really have to stop myself screaming at Mike or one of the kids for leaving out a breadboard used for making crusty rolls for lunch. (Its only now that I realise the far reach of a crusty rolls crumb!) The Dymo labeller has been in overdrive, and the kitchen is starting to resemble a kindergarten, where everything has a label and a name and a place, and I am beginning to resemble one of those really grumpy teachers who everyone was afraid to look at!

Welcome to my World ...

won't you come on in.
....or so the song goes.
I have started this blog, sort of as a way of keeping track of my "new life". I have recently been diagnosed with Coeliacs Disease, and so I am new to all this, so I hope you will bear with me as I find my way through this gluten free minefield that that I feel I am stomping all over, whilst wearing a blindfold!!!
There are some really amazing GF blogs out there, and some really amazing people who are living gluten free, posting incredible looking recipes, and sharing all that they know.
I can't claim to be offering any advice (well until I get to grips with it all myself, so you may have to bear with me) and my recipes may not be gourmet delights, but I will share what I do discover, and link to those pioneers who have gone before me smoothing the way into a world free of gluten and lots of other nasties.
