That I was cheated out of them. That Silent Reflux stole them from me. I put up walls and blocked out memories to try and cope. To try and grasp some light in the wilderness.

Recipe // Dairy and Soya Free Gingerbread Flowers

We have a play date today with one of Busby’s friends from school and her sister. They both suffer from CMPA like H-Bear, so I always relish the challenge to create something new and yummy for our play dates that everyone can eat. This week I decided to make gingerbread flowers because I thought it would be a lovely afternoon activity for Busby and I to do while H-Bear napped… Well, she was more than happy to eat the dough and decorate, but the rest was left up to me –  ...
