We moved into our three bedroom terraced house back in August. Since then, the house has remained untouched. We haven't even gone near it with a paint brush. Our little home could be amazing. There is huge potential. But if we are going to make changes then we need to do it properly. We need to consider all our options. So over the past few months various surveyors, builders and heating specialists have looked over our house and provided us with…

On Easter Sunday we plan to do an Easter egg hunt for Little Miss H. So earlier this week, I headed into our local Sainsbury's and bought a plethora of chocolate treats. I may have over done it. Since then, Little Miss H has been given some more huge Easter eggs. So to prevent our darling daughter from having the biggest sugar high known to man, I decided to create a recipe to use up some of this chocolate. And to…

Rainbow wish list for a baby boy

When I gave birth to Little Miss H, I didn't know that she was my Rainbow Baby. I didn't know what the term meant. A Rainbow Baby, is a baby that is born after miscarriage, still birth, neonatal loss or other baby loss. It refers to the bright and beautiful rainbows that appear in the sky after a storm. The rainbow doesn't pretend that the storm never existed. Instead the rainbow shines all the brighter because it has followed a moment of…

I love taking Little Miss H out to play in the sunshine. And as a family, one of our favourite ways to spend a Saturday is to go to a park, wood or stately home. Even when the weather is cold or wet, we bundle ourselves into out warm coats and head out doors. Time in the fresh air always blows away the cobwebs and puts us all in a better mood. But to make sure that we can get out of the…

A perfect Mother’s Day – My Captured Moment

A black and white photograph of a mother and her young daughter on a swing in the middle of a wood - with the title "A perfect Mother's Day" - Mrs H's favourite things

Last week, I celebrated my third Mother's Day. Having suffered from recurrent miscarriages, I know how blessed I am to celebrate this day at all. Having children is much harder than it looks. Not the process of child rearing (although that has its good and bad days) but the process of creating, making and baking a baby. That is why I never take my family for granted and I am so grateful that they are a part of my life. And this year's…

Surviving Pregnancy After Baby Loss

Pregnancy after baby loss is a time of mixed emotions. There is happiness but also great worry. Emotions are heightened. This is how I survived the anxiety of my pregnancy after miscarriage. Photograph is of a rainbow after a dark storm. As my baby and the pregnancy after my recurrent miscarriages where like the rainbow after the storm - Surviving pregnancy after baby loss - Mrs H's favourite things

Pregnancy after baby loss is a time of mixed emotions. There is happiness and joy. But there is also anxiety and fear. Back in November 2015, I discovered that I was pregnant for the sixth time in 3 years. We were blessed to have a lovely little girl. But we had also experienced the pain and grief of four miscarriages. Three of the miscarriages had been while trying to have our second child. And only a few months before discovering I was…
