    One of my goals is to de-clutter everything, this year! I always feel so much better after a good clear-out!

      Me too! We have just accumulated so much stuff in our flat, I really need to tackle the stuff we have just shoved under the bed & forgotten about. I’m hoping that if I’m just slow & steady I can build up to tackling the bigger areas. It’s surprising how easily it all builds up! Plus I’m one of these folks that holds on to things “just in case”. That needs to stop! Good luck with your declutter!

    It sounds like you were super busy in December and got a lot taken care of for your blog! Kudos to you, lady! So sorry to hear that your health took a backseat though! I can definitely sympathise with you, as I have a lot of stomach issues as well (allergic to lactose fructose and I have acid reflux)! Have you been tested for those sugars or gluten as well? If not, I recommend doing so! I worked with a Low Fodmap diet for a bit and eliminated spicey and acidy food and slowly re-introduced some things to see what my stomach could handle and now I have a pretty good idea of what to and what not to eat. Wishing you a healthy January, lady!

      I never thought about sugar intolerance. I definitely have issues with lactose and gluten. I seem to be fine with fruit, my body tends to crave it, which is often a sign that it needs it and thankfully I’ve not had issues with it. I think I probably have more issues with process sugars & foods. My body never really responds well to it. I’m in the process of weaning myself off process sugars, it’s hard! But it will be worth it 🙂 You’re the second person now to mention the Low Foodmap diet to me, I really must investigate. I know I have issues with onions and some other acidic foods, so I must learn more about it! I’m hoping if I just continue to make small changes, it will be more sustainable. Thanks for dropping by & for the info! Much appreciated.
