Welcome to the first My Rainbow Baby post of 2017. I have created this series in the wish that it will give hope to anyone who has experienced baby loss or is struggling to have a longed for baby. Little Miss H and Little Mister H are not the only rainbow babies. There are many of them. And I want to share the beautiful and poignant tales of these special little rainbows. I am inviting others to tell these stories. To talk about…

The (not big or fat) quiz of the year

A coloured photograph of a little girl dressed in cold weather gear walking across Camber Sands beach on a sunny winter's day with the beach houses and a bright blue sky in the background - The (not big of fat) quiz of the year _ Mrs H's favourite things

Earlier this week, the lovely Lisa from Mummascribbles tagged me in The (not big or fat quiz) of the year. Lisa has been one of my favourite bloggers and best blogging buddies for quite a while. She is truly lovely. But she is also a brilliant writer. She wrote this fabulous letter to her first born son recently and I am sure it is a post that resonates with all parents of more than one child. For the past two years,…

Win tickets to In the Night Garden Live

A still from the children's TV programme In the Night Garden featuring IgglePiggle, Makka Pakka, Upsy Daisy and the Tombliboos - Win tickets to In the Night Garden Live - Mrs H's favourite things

Little Miss H is a fickle sort. Her appreciation of certain TV programmes can wane over time. But her love for In the Night Garden is constant. The adventures of IgglePiggle and his friends are guaranteed to put a smile on her face. She knows the words and dance moves to each character's song (although the Tombliboos are a particular favourite). And she expects Mr H and I to accompany her in the gazebo dance at the end of every episode. That…

Stories for Life – the perfect Christmas gift

A photograph of the front covers of three books from Penguin Random House Children's Books including Max and Bird by Ed Vere, The Dinosaur that Pooped Christmas and The Little Elephant who wants to fall asleep - Stories for Life - the perfect Christmas gift_Mrs H's favourite things

As a child I used to love receiving books as Christmas presents. And I often found a story wrapped up under the Christmas tree. A story book is the perfect Christmas present for children. Books aren't played with and then forgotten about. Your child will not grow out of a book. A book is for life, not just for Christmas. And so I was hugely excited when a package arrived through our door the other day. Penguin Random House Children's Books had sent…

A photograph of a very cute baby boy wearing a gorgeous Penguin Baby Grow and a French Grey Little Kisses Knotted Hat from From Babies with Love AW16 Capsule Collection of organic baby clothing - Organic baby clothes review - From Babies with Love - Mrs H's Favourite Things

Before becoming a mother, I was a charity fundraiser. I cared deeply and I wanted to make a difference in the world. But since becoming a mother, my desire to help other's has increased. And I'm especially drawn to organisations and social enterprises that help disadvantaged and vulnerable children. That is why I was thrilled when From Babies with Love asked me to review some products from their AW16 Capsule Collection of beautiful organic baby clothes.…

A photograph of a little girl standing in front of a Skomer Lodge at Bluestone National Park Resort, Pembrokeshire, Wales _ Mrs H's favourite things

Earlier this month we packed up our car and drove for 5 hours to Pembrokeshire. Bluestone National Park Resort in Wales had invited us for an early Christmas break and to visit their 2016 Christmas experience Kingdom of the Elves. This is my first post about our winter holiday at Bluestone. I thought that I would begin by sharing a review of the accommodation, the resort itself and our visit to the Kingdom of the Elves. In a few days time…

Our Advent 2016 Bucket List

A photograph of a branch of frost covered red berries _ Our Advent 2016 Bucket List_Mrs H's favourite things

For Little Miss H's second Christmas I compiled a list of activities for us to do during Advent. Last year I planned to do this again but unfortunately it did not happen. I was so anxious during my pregnancy that I wasn't able to concentrate on anything else. This year everything is different. Little Mister H is almost five months old. Little Miss H is now at pre-school. And I am in a much better place. So once again I plan to…
