A featured image for the new linky and Instagram Community Our Weekend Happy - Our Weekend Happy Linky #7 - Mrs H's favourite things

Back in November, the lovely Lisa from Mummascribbles and I attended a blogging conference together. While chatting in one of the breaks, I told Lisa how much I loved the posts that she writes about all the happy times from her weekends.  I also mentioned that I thought that it was a brilliant idea for a linky and Instagram community. Fast forward 3 months and here we are with our first Our Weekend Happy linky. Lisa and I are so excited…

And Mr H’s sister would make him an outfit that matched the colours of the boat they were staying on during their holiday. When Panda was looking worn and…

The Declaration of Motherhood

A photograph of a mother and her young daughter in wet weather gear paddling in the ocean - The Declaration of Motherhood - Mrs H's favourite things - a post about being a mother, about being equal and about supporting each other

I hold these truths to be self-evident that all mothers are created equal. Irrespective of the road you’ve travelled down to become a mother, you are endowed with certain undeniable rights, and these include not being judged, being supported and being allowed to parent as you see fit. That to secure these rights, you merely need to have the position of Mother. Whether your child was conceived naturally, through IVF, was adopted or fostered you are a mother and I’ve been…

5 ways I’m Trying To Look After My Health

A photograph of a woman - 5 Ways that I'm Trying to Look After My Health - Mrs H's favourite things

This post could also have been called 5 ways I’m trying to become happier in my own skin. Because I’m not happy in my own skin at the moment. And when I look in the mirror and I don’t like the person I see staring back at me. I’m reminded of a line from one of my favourite songs: “It’s just that we stayed, too long In the same old sickly skin.”                …

An interview with Little Miss H at 56 months old

A photograph of a 56 month old little girl - An Interview with Little Miss H at 56 months old - Mrs H's favourite things

Little Miss H is now 56 months old. She is four months away from being five years old. And today she lost her first tooth. It began wobbling on Saturday and then fell out today. It feels like a huge milestone and one that I was not ready for. I can’t quite believe that my baby girl is losing her baby teeth. When did she get so grown up? Little Miss H has been at primary school since September and her…

Win tickets to In the Night Garden Live 2018

A photograph of Makka Pakka from the Pinky Ponk production of In the Night Garden Live - photograph from the post "In the Night Garden Live - a review" by Mrs H's favourite things

One of our highlights of last summer was going to see In the Night Garden Live at its purpose-built Showdome in Blackheath. It was a wonderful show and we can’t wait to see it again this summer. I have to admit, that I was unsure how the children would respond to seeing In the Night Garden Live. They both LOVE the TV show but Little Miss H is wary of seeing live performances. I needn’t have worried. Both the children…
