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…

Yet, it always shocked me how few people actually had a Will. Or if they did have a Will then it was very rare for it to be up to date. As a parent, there is always an endless list of life administration to take care…

5 Reasons I’m looking forward to Summer

A photograph of a little girl on a summer day running through a field of wild flowers - Five Reasons I'm Looking Forward to Summer - Mrs H's favourite things

In collaboration with Garden & Camping. On Sunday, we headed to the seaside to have a day on the beach. We spent the whole day as a family breathing in the sea air and strolling leisurely. It was a wonderful day. The sun shone and the sky was blue. And for a moment, I almost forgot that it is still winter. Ever since that day, I’ve been dreaming of the days when the weather is better. Spring is always my…

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…
