Dear Mr Birthday Present Fairy

Dear Mr Birthday Present Fairy (aka The Man),

As you know, my birthday is coming up in a bit over a month.  You say you often find it hard to choose a present for me, so I thought I'd start giving you some hints.

I think this mug is super cute.  It has a tea strainer with it too, so it could fit nicely together in the cupboard and I wouldn't have to complain to you that you always put my tea strainer in places that I can't find it.  I know I already have some gorgeous mugs, but I do drink lots of tea.  And besides, those TimTam cups do need to go, rather than to always remind me that I can't eat them anymore now that I can't eat gluten.

I also think this pencil case is really sweet.  I just love how Red Riding Hood is asking the wolf, "Why is your mouse so big?"  It reminds me of my Japanese students who I miss so very much.  And I do have lots of pencils that need somewhere nice to live.

When I find some more things that I like, I'll let you know shall I?

Love Melanie

PS.  I have been trying to be a very good girl this year, so I hope that counts.

PPS.  Thank you to this lovely lady for the link to this store.

hope the birthday fairy brings you everything you wish for, I find that most times I need to go out and buy myself what I want instead of giving hints :)

Hi Melanie,I cant eat gluten either and miss those delectable Tim Tams. Coles stocks 'Leda Choculence' biscuits in the Health Food aisle. They're the closest thing I've found to compare.

Very cute :)
Now that you are through your trials and no longer eating gluten I am sure you have found some options, if you are still looking for ideas I would recommend a cookbook by Ariana Bundy called sweet alternative. I have cooked some things out of it for gluten-intolerant friends and enjoyed them myself, some very delicious recipes in there! There are many I have yet to try, some of the ingredients seem hard to locate (she's american so some are easier to find there I would think and I tend to reduce the sugar a little) but many of the recipes can be made with ingredients I located at a regular supermarket. There are also more ready-made options than there used to be which is great :) doesn't replace the things you cannot have but at least gives you yummy alternatives.
