This is a collaborative post. When it comes to the annual summer vacation, it’s easy to choose the mundane and ordinary package holiday. All-inclusive options on the hotel complex, evening entertainment in the form of cheesy cabaret tribute acts and a kids club tend to be the go-to formula. However, you do have more options. Some families take the perfect family holiday to far-flung destinations like Costa Rica, Macau, Fiji and Uzbekistan. While you may wonder how they manage to…

A Good Friday Trip To See Animals Of The Ice Age – A Review

A photo of a Daddy, his daughter and son standing underneath the sign for Animals of the Ice Age at Howletts Wild Animal Park - A Good Friday Trip to see Animals of the Ice Age - Mrs H's favourite things

Today the sun shone. In fact, the weather was beautiful this afternoon. Which was Sod’s Law because yesterday we’d been invited to Howletts Wild Animal Park to review their new experience, Animals of the Ice Age. And of course, yesterday was cold and wet. Not the ideal weather for spending a day outside looking for animals. However, we still had a wonderful time and we were all very impressed with the new exhibit. Animals of the Ice Age at Howlett’s…

Do Your Car Tyres Suit Your Needs?

A photograph of a car tyre - Do Your Car Tyres Suit Your Needs? - Mrs H's favourite things

This is a collaborative post. To the untrained eye, all tyres work in a similar fashion, working for all journey types in any weather condition. However, this isn’t necessarily the case. While tyre types may look similar, when you take into consideration the different car models, tyre brands, and seasonal requirements, tyre variations begin to arise. Not every type of tyre will suit every type of car all year round, but understanding the difference between the variations is paramount for…

Our Travel Bucket List

A photograph of a woman on holiday in the Maldives wearing a stetson and tying her sarong - Our Travel Bucket List - Mrs H's favourite things

This is a sponsored post. Mr H and I have always loved to travel. Before we had children we would go abroad twice a year. We would try to vary the trips we took. So one holiday would be a city break where we crammed every day with activity and took in as much culture as we could. The second holiday would be a beach holiday where we would just relax. It was bliss! During this time we were lucky…

Finding happiness and chasing rainbows. Ever since Mr H and I started to try for a family, rainbows have been an emblem in my life. My pregnancy with Little Mister H was filled with anxiety. I was terrified of losing another baby. Yet every time I feared the worst a rainbow would appear in the sky to give me hope. A rainbow to shine the way for our second rainbow baby. Our son, Little Mister H, who appeared in our…

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…

Our Week In Broadstairs

A photograph of a little girl playing in the shallows of the sea at Botany Bay in Broadstairs, Kent- Our Week in Broadstairs - Mrs H's favourite things

It is the first week of the Summer holidays and the weather has been hit and miss. But we’ve still managed to have fun. We’ve built dens, baked cookies, seen an open air performance of Alice through the looking glass,  visited a farm, played games and watched Peppa Pig. And of course, we went out in the rain for a walk in the woods behind our house. This led to the obligatory jumping in muddy puddles. That pig has a…
