Our daughter was diagnosed as a strong possible Celiac (Coeliac) in the beginning of April. Going gluten free is not an easy thing, no matter where you are in the world. For us here in Dubai it was a bit harder due to the way the health system works. If you are not with a good doctor you may find yourself – like us – without being given vital information. We were simply just given our diagnosis and sent on our merry way. I say we, because even though it’s our daughter who is the Celiac, as she is just two it’s really not up to her to deal with any of it. We had to take it on as a family! As a stay-at-home-mum, it has been mainly me doing the research, the shopping and the searching etc. Our lives have changed 100% since the diagnosis, and yet I can’t even remember what it was like before. Being gluten free has become a way of life. Read more

The other day I had to call the maintenance to investigate a water leak. When they arrived we all walked into that part of the garden one never really explores – the area with old rusty bits of gardening tools, plant containers dried out pieces of piping left over from the irrigation and …the water tank. As we unscrewed the top of the water tank I was horrified to see how much dirt and sand was lying at the bottom and then it hit me – this is the water my family is cooking and cleaning with. We may drink bottled water Read more
