Hope you manage to sort through things quickly, Danuta, without stopping to read stuff or thinking "oh I might keep that, it may come in useful/has sentimental value" and getting so engrossed you end up not having actually got rid of anything really.  (Never happens to me whistleponderbig_laugh)

It does rather  laugh , but it's a trap that most of us fall into, I'm afraid!

In fact, I've just given one of those tasks to hubby because he's much better at doing what's needed, turning out all the old catalogues/magazines - Lakeland, Hotter shoes, Waitrose mags, etc.  Maybe after that, I will be able to see some worktop space ..... maybe ...  whistle

Big day, first attempt at sour dough!
Dinner cooking slowly as planning to eat at 1pm. Shopping to do, usual chicken duties and various house bits to do.
Have a good day all

Morning Sue,

Have you noticed your bad side effects returning during the period you have been off the strict diet regime over Christmas & New Year?  Good luck with getting back on board again. At least now you have had time to do a lot of reading on the subject & been able to find some interesting recipes to have a go at. I have to say I have found out a lot more about food combinations & effects doing research on the subject of food intolerance etc. Although I do not suffer from it I have used the information to produce some very tasty combinations. So I have a lot to thank you for Sue.  smile  ok  big_hug
