Holiday reading

Even when you are going on holiday to a ski resort, and you know you are going to be spending most of your time on the slopes I always think it is good to have a good read ready.

Mr T and I have come away with 2 of our best friends, who we actually met for the second time about 8 years ago. To cut a long story short we met the McGugans in Finland originally, didn’t swap contact details but got on really well. 3 years later we bumped into them again in a ski resort in Andorra! And the rest is history as they say. Anyway. I digress!

I have got my kindle loaded up with books..:. But then this little beauty caught my eye…


Ha ha! I didn’t buy it. BUT if I did want to read something a little tongue in cheek about going gluten free this is what I might read. In the meantime I will stick to my kindle and crack on with come of the gluten free treats I am sourcing on my Andorra ski trip! 

Prepping for a gluten free holiday

Hooray! the holidays are here – well my holidays are anyway! I carried lots of annual leave over from last year so conscious I need to get using them pretty soon. So we have got a fortnight off snowboarding. That’s right… A WHOLE FORTNIGHT in the mountains!

I’m excited.

I’m also making sure that I am well covered with gluten free treats to take with me to keep me on the straight and narrow. Keep me away from the muffins… the croissants and the beer at the end of the day. We decided to go self catering so it should be easy enough to control and for the next 2 days my to do list looks a little like this:-

  • Check-in online and print boarding passes
  • Print details for accommodation, insurance and airport parking
  • Pack cases and all equipment
  • Charge Kindle
  • Handover at work (no one wants the stress of work on hols)
  • Go to the shops and get what I can for Gluten free goodies!
  • Take dogs to kennels

And the other thing to note is – we are on a budget. We do not have hundreds of euros per day allocated for spending money… so any nuggets of info will have a pretty tight bank account in mind!
