Gluten Free Goblin

Had Mum finally lost it? She was in the kitchen wearing a mask while making a cake. A cake that was not using gluten free flour, which she was in danger of inhaling, hence the mask. Bonkers.

So, I inherited coeliac disease from my Mum's side and my webbed toes from my Dad's. Marvelous! The toes I love, they are my party piece and I often get them out at parties after a few shandies. The gluten free diet is not so great at a party. It usually results in me drinking far too much on an empty stomach and showing strangers my feet.

But it's not all that bad - I've just had to change a few things I eat since being diagnosed 6 months ago. Not the end of the world, and I'm yet to wear a mask in the kitchen!
