Hello everyone :)
I have put off blogging since Sunday night, because I knew ultimately it would lead to whole post dedicated to moaning!
Our “holiday” to the Haven was SHOCKING and one I would never repeat again! The caravans where dirty and smelly, hubby and I had to sleep on the floor because the beds were broke! The carvan park its self was poor equipped, the park for example had 1 baby swing, and one normal swing, for 900 caravans!! (I have a better park in my back garden!!) The swimming pool was tiny!! More like a puddle to bob up and down in!
So with that and a trip to A&E with Phoenix due to high fever and a nasty rash, I wouldn’t say it was a holiday at all lol.

The children (11 of them) dispute being really bored, behaved really well and we still managed to have fun, and the weather was lovely – I am glad to be home though ;)
I got a little bit knitting, done, not as much as I had hoped! As really couldn’t take our eyes off the little ones for even a second!
Reading wise, I did manage to finish book 6!! of Black dagger Brotherhood (YIPPPPPEEEEE) and now I am having a break from the series to read “it starts with food”, as some of you know i have changed the way I eat, because of a number of symptoms I have been experiencing.
Before I went to Haven I had been on Paleo for a month, so I thought the holiday would be a good time to reintroduce all the foods I had cut out, to see what would happen!
|In the month that i started Paleo my skin started clearing without any need for creams, within 4 weeks!!|
Within a couple of days, my tummy (which was flat while on Paleo) bloated right out, was really tender to touch, my eczema flared up on my face, neck and hands, face started to break out in spots! And I got ulcers under my tongue and on my inner lip, and my energy levels hit an all-time low! Even my hubby agreed that he felt bloated and sluggish.

What also amazed me, is how my taste buds have changed in such a short period of time!, I used to love salt, but now the taste in foods over power me (had to buy reduced salt bacon, otherwise it makes me feel like I have drunk sea water YUK!), while away diet coke gave both my hubby and I acid reflux . These are just to name but a few!
At the moment we are on day3 of the whole30, which is basically a Paleo detox, to reset our hormone and metabolism functions, I am already feeling tons better than last week :)
I will be back tomorrow with Fibre appreciation Thursday xx
