YOU advent calendar- looks a good alternative to beauty boxes
Exactly Tough I'd like to not be a fat, drunken mess come 1st Jan for once
Actually, it's my first gluten-free Christmas and I thought a daily treat would make up for not having mince pies/shortbread/bread/stuffing/aunt bessies honeyroasted parnsips/cheeselets/christmascake.....
Urgh. Long story - GP fucked up with the info he gave me, so I've been GF since March but not diagnosed as coeliac or whether it's "just" <bitter laugh> a gluten intolerance. I had an endoscopy last Thursday week but it was unclear so I have to go again. Horrid experience - hope your DD is OK. I gagged and puked and couldn't breathe - left me all swollen faced and bloodshot eyes Go for the sedative option if she gets it.
Ruddy horrible missing out on so much "normal" food and the GF options are either (a) dire or (b) expensive or (c) both dire and expensive.
That said, going GF has been a revelation - I feel so much better, more energy, better skin, no more aching back, no more tummy issues. So I'm very glad I'm off gluten, I just miss the cake
Sorry, auto changed it to has- she had it on Friday. She had it under general , much less traumatic. Your experience sounds grim. We get results in two weeks I think. Good to hear you are feeling better- I hear M&S do really nice GF cakes if you feel desperate .
