Christmas is such a magical time for children, but until this year Little Miss H has always been too young to fully appreciate the magic. But she is now four and a half years old and can’t wait for Christmas. In fact, most days we hear “Mummy… Daddy… How many more sleeps until Christmas?” Over the years we’ve created a number of family Christmas traditions. Advent is filled with daily Christmassy activities and the kids also receive a book every…

Our Advent 2016 Bucket List

A photograph of a branch of frost covered red berries _ Our Advent 2016 Bucket List_Mrs H's favourite things

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…

I recently spent a lovely time in my local JoJo Maman Bébé store lusting over all the gorgeous Christmas clothes for both Little Miss and Little Mister H. As a child my mum always bought me a special dress to wear on Christmas day. Knowing that…

My Monthly Bucket List – October 2016

A faded photograph of a large pumpkin growing surrounded by leaves - with the title "My Monthly Bucket List - October 2016" - Mrs H's favourite things

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…

Our Book Advent 2015: A Parragon Book Buddies review

Now Little Miss H is here we have started a new tradition at Advent. Little Miss H adores books and so I love to present her with a book a day during Advent. Some of these books are new. But most are Christmas books that I have bought in previous years. Or books that we haven't looked at over the years. I love brown paper packages tied up with string. I wrap the books up in plain craft paper and use some…

Happy Days #1

One of my main aims for this year is to spend more time being happy. I know that isn’t always possible. We all have bad days. But even when life isn’t perfect there are happy moments. I need to recognise these and be grateful for them. …
