Hi, welcome to me.
I’m a single mum with 2 kids, Isabella and Myles aka Milo.
I work in the design industry after nearly 20 years in the telecoms.
My main reason for starting this blog is to talk about allergies. Well food allergies in particular. Isabella has quite severe allergies and has suffered an anaphylactic reaction. We have learned a lot over the years, however still struggle with making people aware of her condition and taking it seriously.
Recently, a young NSW boy died on a school camp. Richard Guilliatt’s article, “Death on the menu”, published in the Good Weekend on December 10, 2005 provides a overview of the situation. Fortunately for children living with allergies in NSW, the government has changed the regulations for the better.
Knowledge about allergies needs to be an integral part of the training of the educators and carers of our children.
Anyways – I’m getting carried away already.
Poker – now that’s more fun!
