Food intolerances and Migraines .....the things I gave up so far


I haven't done this in ages .... Ive given up all cakes that contain eggs .
I'm hoping the research programme I've applied for will accept me , and via that I will find out which foods I may ( or may not ) be intolerant to . ( migraines)
And that way I might discover that I gave up scones and cakes for nothing . ( oh please )
So far I stopped eating them to avoid eggs but I still have headaches ..... ( and it's done nothing for my general fitness or weight so far as I can see ...... !! ) . So it would be good to know .
I still use the occasional coffee .....
If that proved to be one of my things , well that would be a test .

Dog Fartiness

There is a horrid air of Dog Fartiness chez CatCalls this morning post Dog Walk ( yes Greyhound we're looking at you ) . I am expecting two separate series of friends this afternoon and then my sister and her son and his pal for the weekend . Harvey and Steven , who hails from Kielder , is allegedly quiet and wears a bandana ( so will get on famously with Alice ? but there we hope the resemblance ends .... we have enough trouble with flatulence already ) are unlikely to be bothered by the rotten eggs aroma but some of the other guests may take note , so I rack my brians ( or even my brains ) for a Kim and Aggie ( how clean is your house ? ) solution How Clean is Your House? - Kim & Aggie's Cleaning Advice from Channel4.com/4Ho and thus find myself at ten am sprinkling bicarbonate of soda mixed with essential oils ( cedarwood , eucalyptus , geranium , and a relaxing mix of ylang ylang and some other whose name now escapes me ) all of which I find nestling under the tv just waiting for the day when they can refresh the carpet .

Lovely ! Pearlie Birman pokes her head round the door alerted no doubt by the new aroma and looks on in amazement as I run around throwing white powder all over everything , and now I sit waiting for it all to penetrate before vacuuming . What could be simpler ?

And of course ... I catch sight of Alice's numerous beds , quilts , monkeys , dollies , teddies , pound puppies apporopriated from the cats , all looking a bit grubby so they are all tossed into the washing machine . Alice has closed her eyes firmly against the horror and is feigning sleep .
