Our baby gender reveal

Having the 20 week scan on Thursday helped me relax. It was a great milestone to reach and it was wonderful to see our baby fidgeting away. I am always nervous before scans. I worry about the worst case scenario. And I sit in the waiting room sick from nerves and excitement. Thankfully, the scan went well. Baby is healthy and everything looks as it should do. And yes, we did find out the gender. Just as we did when I was pregnant…

Five under £5.00 – March 2016

A photograph of my five products each purchased for under £5.00, including Jelly Bunnies, a copy of Red Magazine, a heart shaped tin, a green bow hair clip and a rainbow belt - includes the heading "Five under £5 - March"_ Mrs H's favourite things

My gorgeous blogging friend Julia, who blogs at Rainbeaubelle, writes monthly posts called Five under £5. I love these posts. I am a very nosy person by nature. And so I am fascinated to see what my fellow bloggers have purchased for under £5.00. I often get tempted to go out and buy some of their wonderful finds. I've been meaning to join in for a while. As always I have found it hard to get myself organised. I could probably purchase…

I recently read this fabulous baby wish list from the beautiful and bloomin' stunning Heledd at Running in Lavender. In this post, she mentioned her love for Baby Wearing. Which got me thinking about how much I loved wearing Little Miss H and how I miss it now that she flatly refuses to go anywhere near a carrier. Rainbow Bean is due in July. And one of the things I am looking forward to the most is baby wearing a newborn.…

I am now 18 weeks pregnant. This is my sixth pregnancy. And it is my fourth pregnancy after miscarriage. It is only now, at 18 weeks pregnant that I am beginning to relax a little and enjoy the pregnancy. I know that I will not be able to stop worrying until we have our baby at home. I wish that I could say that I breezed through the first trimester. That I was ecstatic when I saw that I was pregnant and…

Welcome to this week's Sunday Stars. Happy Valentine's Day. I hope that you are all having a lovely day and that you are enjoying February. We had a very busy December and January, so it is nice to have a more chilled month. Although, as you're reading this, I am probably sitting on a train heading into London to see Sheridan Smith play Fanny Brice in Funny Girl at the Menier Chocolate Factory. I love musicals and I am going with my…

If you have read my blog for a while, then you will know that I passionately believe in the fundemental purpose that charities and charity campaigns play in society. They play an essential role in ensuring that the world becomes a better place. A place where the vulnerable and disadvantaged in society are given the chance at a better life. I realise that I am blessed to live as I do and I believe that I have a social right and…

Last week was tough. Little Miss H had a very nasty sickness bug, which she eventually shared with me. It wasn't pleasant. But we are now on the road to recovery. And this afternoon has been hard. My emotions are all over the place at the moment and I often feel very tearful. To cheer myself up I think it is about time to write a new Because I'm happy post. I always love these blog posts. They never fail to put…

Little Miss H has been obsessed with mini-marshmallows ever since she had her first hot chocolate before Christmas. And I am obsessed with rocky roads. So a few months ago, I decided to try to make some rocky road cookies. It took a few attempts. But I think I managed to perfect the recipe this weekend and I am ready to share it with you. If you are looking to make a cookie with a difference, to make a cookie that screams…
