16 fabulous feel good movies

A photograph of a box of popcorn with spilled popcorn, some unravelled movie film, a cinema ticket stub and some white flowers - Fabulous feel good movies - Mrs H's favourite things

I may have mentioned that I’m obsessed with La La Land. It’s a lovely film and has become one of my favourite feel good movies. And I’m all about the feel good movies at the moment. Watching a happy movie is the perfect remedy for when I’m feeling down. They lift me up. They help me forget my anxieties and worries and they put a smile on my face. I am a sucker for a romantic comedy. And in my 20s, I would…

Mother’s Day is now one of my favourite days of the year. Last Mother’s Day was absolutely fantastic. I was pregnant with our longed for rainbow baby. I got to have a lie-in, breakfast in bed, a family day out and a yummy meal in the evening. And Mr H had arranged the perfect gift. A pregnancy massage at the Champney’s City Spa in Tunbridge Wells. I believe that showing love and appreciation for the Mother in your life should…

A still from the movie La La Land. This photograph is from a scene of Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling dancing in the musical movie La La Land - In love with La La Land - Mrs H's favourite things

As soon as I saw the trailer for La La Land I knew that I had to see it. So on Tuesday, Little Mister H and I went to a special Mummy and Baby showing . And OMG, I bloody loved it! I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say that I’m obsessed. Since Tuesday I’ve listened to the soundtrack on repeat. And I’ve even pre-ordered the DVD. I’m not going to bore you by telling you why I fell in love with La La Land. The genius Mark…

Little Mister H has been grouchy all day. He’s been clingy and cried every time I have put him down. There has been a swimming pool full of dribble. He has been chewing everything in sight. And he has had a slight temperature and red cheeks. He is teething. And it sucks. When Little Miss started teething I had no idea what to do. I had read about it in baby books and magazines but nothing prepared me for how…

Babywearing love – a review of the Wuti Wrap by We Made Me

A photograph collage of a mother wearing her young baby in the Wuti Wrap by We Made Me - Babywearing love - a review of the Wuti Wrap by We Made Me

Little Miss H was six months old when I started babywearing. I bought a bamboo woven wrap and began to carry her for journeys into town or to see friends. I also wrapped her when I was doing chores around the house and she needed to nap. During my pregnancy with Little Mister H, I would imagine our little boy as a newborn baby. And I would become excited about the idea of wearing him. Being able to breathe in…

toTs by SmarTrike Voyage Changing Bag – a review

A photograph of the toTs by SmarTrike Dark Grey Melange Voyage Changing Bag sitting in the sunshine on a pebbly beach _ tots by SmarTrike Dark Grey Melange Voyage Changing Bag _ A review _ Mrs H's favourite things

A changing bag is one of the most important purchases you will make as a new parent. We bought a cheap and basic changing bag when I was pregnant with Little Miss H. It was boring and black. And after a month it needed replacing. So I bought a Cath Kidston floral backpack. Mr H HATED this bag. A pretty floral bag is really not his style. This bag was big enough for Little Miss H's belongings. But I knew that…

A collage of fabulous wooden toys for baby and toddler boys - including a fabulous fire engine ride on from Halfords, Grimms conical rainbow stacker and a Bajo wooden mouse and Gruffalo figures - Wooden toys wish list for baby and toddler boys - Mrs H's favourite things

Little Mister and Little Miss H have a lot of toys. But without doubt my favourite are their wooden toys. These are the toys that are enduring classics. They are the toys that they play with over and over again and that fire their imagination. They are also safer for them as wooden toys tend not to have any nasty chemicals. Which is handy when you have a baby who puts anything and everything in their mouth. And my, are wooden toys pretty…
