My favourite bloggers featuring Make, do & Push

A stylised photograph of a keyboard, plant pot, postcard, pair of glasses and bag of washi tape on a marble background - features the blog post title My Favourite Bloggers featuring Make, Do & Push - Mrs H's favourite things

I’ve been a blogger for over five years now. During that time, I’ve read some amazing blogs written by people I now consider friends, and I guess, colleagues. And as a result, the list of my favourite bloggers has grown and grown. I’ve read posts that have made me laugh and others that have made me cry. Writing that’s inspiring and writing that’s educational. Words on a screen that have made me feel less alone. That have helped me realise…

A photograph of a four year old girl playing with the fabulous educational toy the ZooBooKoo Spelling Cube Book that can be bought at Bigjigs - this is the review of that toy -which is part of our role as members of the Bigjigs Play Patrol - Mrs H's favourite things

Back in April we were thrilled to be chosen to be part of the Bigjigs Play Patrol. It is a role that Little Miss H and Little Mister H have thrown themselves into.

It has been a week of mixed emotions. The sadness and fear of the terrorist attacks in London. The loving unity and joy of the One Love concert in Manchester. And the hope of a General Election. At times like this, I feel parenthood weigh heavy on my shoulders. What should we tell our children? Should we tell them anything at all?

Sunshine in a box – reviewing the Sunshine Subscription Box

Back in March I was feeling very blue and I needed some extra sunshine in my life so it was lovely to be able to review the Sunshine subscription Box - the Sunshine Box is the perfect present to help cheer a friend up when they are having a hard time - Sunshine in a box - Reviewing the Sunshine Subscription Box - Mrs H's favourite things

I was feeling quite blue in March. So I was thrilled when the lovely people from Pebblewise said that they would send me that month’s Sunshine Subscription Box to review. “A monthly box of surprises thoughtfully handpicked to raise spirits and bring a little sunshine into everyone’s lives.” I love the idea of a box of goodies that has been picked especially to brighten someone’s day. There are often times when I’ve wanted to send a gift to a friend who has been…

Our June 2017 bucket list

And I’m certain that since having Little Mister H I have entered into a parallel universe where time moves twice as fast. May was a wonderful month. It was the month Little Miss H turned four. And we seemed very busy. I’ve got a feeling that June is going to be a fabulous month too. And it’s already off to a brilliant start. As…
