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…

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…

My Monthly Bucket List – October 2016

October is one of my favourite months of the year. The skies are blue but the weather is cooler and there is an autumnal chill in the air. The leaves have started turning and falling in piles perfect for collecting and kicking. Yet, the woods behind our house are still dappled with green. My sandals have been packed away and the boots are out. It is too cold to go outside without a jacket but the winter coats, hats, gloves and scarfs…

A mum sits on a hospital bed with her three three year old daughter and introduces her to her newborn baby brother - with the title "A heart full of love - The Siblings Project - July 2016" - Mrs H's favourite things

I always knew that Little Miss H would be an amazing sister. That she would be kind and gentle to her sibling. She would be concerned for their welfare and look out for them. She would also boss her baby brother or sister about. Demanding that they play with her. Telling them which character they were playing in her imaginary games. Probably a Disney Princess or a My Little Pony. She would read them stories, show them how to paint and teach…
