    Question Gluten Intolerance

    Other than the blood test, the other tests don't sound very nice. If you think you may have a gluten intolerable, I would just try going gluten free for a month or so & see if it makes any difference. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coeliac-disease/diagnosis/ The gluten free bread in the UK is...

    What did you have tonight

    Fish & chips from our local ish chips shop. We have to walk past 2 others & almost to the top of a hill to get the best ones. Well worth it though, even if I couldn't finish mine

    Where can I find out about planning regulations?

    Thank you all for your replies. I am hoping that because some of the owners are now living at their villa's full time due to Covid, that others are making changes to their properties. Previously a neighbour built a conservatory structure on their roof deck & put a new window facing another...

    Where can I find out about planning regulations?

    It is s detached villa on a small complex. We were thinking about glassing in a small balcony off one of the bedrooms & extending & maybe enclosing the ground floor terrace. The ground floor could do with being a bit bigger & it would be good to be able to leave all the furniture out. At the...

    Where can I find out about planning regulations?

    We are intending to move to Turkey next year & once there will probably be looking at making some changes to a balcony & hopefully extending our ground floor terrace. Is there any information anywhere on what you are permitted to do & where you have to apply for planning permission if it is needed?

    What did you have tonight

    Red thai chicken curry made in the slow cooker. After adding some peppers near the end of cooking it looked a bit wet, so I decided to chuck the rice in to cook with it, excepting to end up with a soup like curry instead it ended up like a biriani. It tasted OK though.

    Maisie, when you have keyhole surgery they inflate your insides & usually put a camera in through your belly button to see what they are doing. They then make 2 or 3 other incisions to do the actual surgery. I would warn Mark not to drive just yet & to check his insurance before he does drive...

    I hope that Mark makes a quick recovery. With keyhole surgery they often let you home the same day now.
