Pumpkin Spice Pancakes Recipe

(serves 2)

Some weekends you just want to take your time and eat well but still eat something different. At least, I sure do.

How to find the positive in your mental health diagnosis

I still very vividly remember when I first realised that I had anxiety. Partly because of the way I realised, but mostly because when I did realise/had it pointed out to me by my gorgeous Mum, it was one of those, “Umm… Duh Miranda!”-moments, and I kind of felt really silly because of course I had anxiety!

At least, that’s the way I felt at the time.
