A gathering of friends 

With the help of my father I managed to sleep in a bit. He looked after the children and fed them breakfast. We did a bit of clean up a bit of play a bit of tv and some cooking. We were invited to a Christmas party and we brought a dish. It was a lovely gathering. And a huge amount of food. I ate too much my tummy is sticking out. 

Now I need to go shower, brush teeth, say my prayers and go to bed. Day four of full withdrawal almost ending and I am still sober. 

I am probably in a total food addiction relapse but will deal with that later. 

Second day and counting. 

So I’ve been sober for roughly 18 days today and in full withdrawal for two days. Today was meh I wasn’t inspired work wise I really want to find another job. 

Summary of the day. I went to work, had a few outreach calls, spoke to my mom and sis over the phone did some more work. I went home early, had a short argument with my dad played with the kids. Had dinner. Played some more. Put two of my kids to sleep as the eldest when to spend the night with his mom. Had another argument with my dad. Watched tv and over ate. Or binge ate. 

But hey I am sober another day. 

Fluffy Almond Pancakes

first I want to thank The Nourishing Home for their Fluffy pancake recipe. it is the best I have found on the internet and I looked for a while. that said I modified it to my liking and here is my version.


  • 1  cup blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup Full Cream Milk
  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp apple cider vinegar


I mix the almond flour with the baking soda in a mixing bowl then create a little dip in the mix pushing the dry mix to the sides of the bowl in a round shape.

I add the egg, pour the cooled melted butter, the apple cider vinegar and the vanilla extract. then I start mixing the wet ingredients with a manual whisk slowing combining it with the dry mix. then I start adding the milk and mixing it all together. I don’t pour all the milk at once but I add it till it reaches the thickness I desire. you can do the same.

then go ahead and pan fry then on a nonstick pan and enjoy it with your favourite spread.
