Our Weekend Happy #3 – A love manifesto, lazy days & a pub quiz

This is week 3 of my Our Weekend Happy post. I’m very impressed that I have managed to keep writing these posts for 3 whole weeks. I don’t have the best track record at consistency. Anyway, in case you haven’t seen my previous Our Weekend Happy posts, it is based on a weekly post that one of my favourite bloggers, Lisa from Mummascribbles writes. I’ve always loved her posts. And so I decided that I wanted to write something similar. Tomorrow (Wednesday…

Snuggletime Winnie the Pooh Plush Range from Posh Paws – A Review

A photograph of a little boy cuddling the Snuggletime Winnie the Pooh from Posh Paws Snuggletime Winnie the Pooh Range of toys - Snuggletime Winnie the Pooh Range - A Review - Mrs H's favourite things

When Mr H was born he was given a soft toy panda bear. That panda bear, known as Panda, became not only his best friend but also a member of the family. When Mr H and his family went on boating holidays on the Norfolk Broads Panda would go with them. 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…

Caring For My Baby My Way With Baby Dove

A photograph of a bottle of Sensitive Head to Toe Body Wash and Real Moisture Bar from Baby Dove lying on a towel covered in a pattern of pink, green, blue and yellow ducks and a rubber duck - Caring For My Baby My Way With Baby Dove - Mrs H's favourite things

In sponsorship with Baby Dove Both my children have very sensitive and dry skin that has a tendency to look red and sore. Little Miss H often gets eczema under her armpits. So I believe it’s important that the baby care products I use on them are gentle and mild and offer complete care for their delicate skin. Until now I’ve struggled to find a baby care range that I’m completely happy with. But thankfully, Dove has recently launched a…

Our Christmas Tree Day

Ahhhh Christmas. It’s such a magical time. It’s even more magical now we have children. You see Christmas through their eyes. The excitement of seeing a tiny Christmas elf door appear outside your bedroom or of getting to unwrap a book every day during Advent. We always put our Christmas tree up in the first weekend in December. We want Christmas to last as long as possible. But we don’t like to start it in November and our tree tends to…

The day I closed the door and walked away

Before I became a mother I could never imagine turning my back on a crying child. Especially not MY crying child. Of course, I knew that children had tantrums but I foolishly imagined that my children would be different. They would be angels. And they would never tantrum in public or get so upset that I wouldn’t be able to calm them. I also thought that I would be a natural mother. That from the moment they were born I…

Nine years ago today I said “I do” to the most wonderful man I’ve ever met. The man who sees me for me. The man who loves me for me. Mr H, you’re my best friend; my rock; my confidante; my lover; my companion and my soulmate. You’re my husband and my Mister. And I love you so much. Nine years ago, we shared the most fantastic day together. The sun shone and we were surrounded by friends and family. Since…

Jack N’ Jill’s New ‘Natural Bathtime’ Range – A Review and Giveaway

A photograph of four products from Jack N' Jill's new natural bathtime range - the photograph includes the Bath Bubbles, Shampoo & Body Wash and Moisturiser from the Simplicity range and the moisturiser from the Serenity range - Making a Splash with Jack N' Jill's New Natural Bathtime Range - A review & giveaway - Mrs H's favourite things

Bathtime is an essential part of our bedtime routine. And it is now one of my favourite parts of the day. I love seeing my two children in the bath together laughing and giggling. The bath products that we use are an essential part of this sacred time. But both the children have different requirements of what they want at bathtime. Little Miss H wants bubbles and lots of them. And Little Mister H needs a mild shampoo that won’t…

7 essential products to make travelling with children stress-free

Travelling with children. The mere mention of those three words will fill even the bravest of parents with fear. We went on our first staycation with Little Miss H when she was four months old. We filled the car with the entire contents of our house and drove the four hours to Dorset. Yes, it was quite hellish. We got stuck in a traffic jam on the A303. Little Miss H began screaming from hunger and I had to nip…
