I would say I had a good morning searching charity shops and other bits and bobs.
Love the soy wax Fairy Dust melts 😍✨

Happy First Wedding Anniversary to this mug πŸ’•β˜ΊοΈ

This, my friends, is why I've been so quiet lately, with the lack of even just a selfie or two.
β€’
Tomorrow may mark the first anniversary of being Dan and I becoming Mr and Mrs, but today is the day we've been waiting for for 3 months.
It's been nail biting trying to keep this precious little secret for so long!
β€’
And, so, we are excited to finally be able to announce that we'll be expecting a little bean this December!
It's not just Santa coming to town this year, there'll also be a little baby H.

I was gonna make pancakes but I wussed out at the last minute. Like I always seem to do.
And made this instead -- because apparently this is easier than pancakes?
I don't even question my failing logic anymore, honestly.

@bioglanuk cacao and sweet potato buckwheat porridge with sultanas, topped w/
kale and mint nicecream with cacao nibs

There hasn't been much to post lately as I've just been in the process of looking after myself through some tiring work, but last week I was officially discharged from the Eating Disorders Services! Can you believe it?
β€’
It's been a long time coming, with years of being in and out of treatment, and now I'm a free elf.
β€’
My journey is far from over, but I've never felt more happy or confident in myself and my abilities or where I'm headed.
And where I want to be.
It's been a truly eye-opening experience and a tough course of learning about myself and what was most important to me.
I'm so thankful to be where I am now.

It's getting warmer which probably means I get to eat more nicecream without feeling like my limbs might fall off.
I gave the tri-colour a go again this morning with acai powder for the pink/purple, it's just pretty ~
β€’
Topped with @bioglanuk cacao nibs, coconut chips and muesli.

I gave making seitan a go and whether or not I did it "right" doesn't matter because, hey, it tastes great for a first-time try!
I'll definitely be experimenting with seasons when I make this again, it's taken me almost a year to actually open up the box of vital wheat gluten to give it a go.
β€’
So here we have stir-fried homemade seitan with @merchantgourmet freekeh and salad.

Monday Morning Mermaid Toast
β€’
Good morning everyone!
I really had a lot of fun with this, it just looks so pretty - I mean, c'mon, edible glitter!
I was surprised with how easy this was to actually put together too, the glitter isn't a must but I had it lying around and thought this was a perfect opportunity to use it.
It just adds to that magical feel, just what you need at the beginning of the week.
β€’
It's made with @bioglanuk's tropical spirulina and vegan cream cheese on slices of mixed seed wholemeal toast.

I had a go at trying to create "mermaid" nicecream instead of "mermaid toast" this morning, although I will be having a dabble with that soon too.
Looks aren't everything, I guess?
My time management skills - or lack there of - certainly played against me this morning but it's what's on the inside (the taste) that counts, right?
β€’
I've been having a lot of issues with serious fatigue lately, hence my sporadic updating, but all is well, I can assure you!
I should have some very exciting news to share in the next month or two, so keep your eyes peeled for that ;)

soya chai lattes topped with cinnamon are absolutely a regular thing right now

It's coming to the weather where I don't feel obliged to eat oatmeal in the mornings but I've found that it is very much my go-to comfort food.
β€’
@bioglanuk Cacao & Maca oatmeal with their Coconut, Almond & Lecuma bites sprinkled as a topping
with banana and raspberries

I don't really go into things anymore but treatment has been awful lately; one thing that has always irritated me about the standard of care in my area is that you're going to be lumped into a one-size-fits-all treatment plan.
It really doesn't seem to matter if you've had issues for 2 years or 20. Which I find ridiculous, as I'm sure most people would.
β€’
I understand funding constraints, I understand the red tape, but I don't understand why, after explaining again and again, why bringing up trauma without due action and telling someone to just 'distance yourself, you're not there anymore,' is supposed to be helpful.
It's not. And unless you address that, it's not going to work out as planned.
β€’
But otherwise I really can't complain; the weather is great, spring cleaning is... steadily getting there (haha!) and future plans are coming together, slowly but surely.
