Afternoon Tea is a ritual I’ve loved ever since I was a child. At any given opportunity, my mum and I will seek out a new place to have our afternoon tea – whether it be on a trip to London, a Mother’s Day outing or when we’re planning a girly spa day. The tiny sandwiches, delicious scones and patisserie cakes make lunch that little bit more special.
Snacks are just one of those things that anyone with Coeliac Disease or food intolerances will need to get used to. Snacks are your new best friend, they travel everywhere with you and will lift your spirits if there’s no gluten free food available. I will admit, the majority of chain coffee shops now sell gluten free snacks (hooray) but it never hurts to be overly prepared!
Last week me and my family travelled to North Devon to spend a week camping by the picturesque coastline of Ilfracombe. Aside from the horrendous 8 hour car journey on the way down and the torrential rain for our first full day (we spent it playing games, eating/drinking and generally getting on each others nerves) it was a lovely, peaceful week with great weather.
