Well hello and welcome to the first "Mrs H's 10 favourite things" post. I have been meaning to start writing these posts for a while now. I often discover fabulous Netflix programmes, a gorgeous new lipstick, a beautiful dress for Little Miss H or a cute babygrow for Little Mister H. And I have nowhere to rave about them. That is why I am starting this monthly post. This month I am being a little sneaky and including some pregnancy items from May…

Little Mister H at one month old

Little Mister H is one month old. It is hard to believe that our sweet boy has been in our lives for only one month. I can't remember what life was like before Little Mister H was part of our family. I was sad that I never completed a baby book or made a record of Little Miss H's development. So I have decided to record how Little Mister H changes from month to month. Starting at the very beginning with Little…

A heart full of love – The Siblings Project – July 2016

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…

A perfect Mother’s Day – My Captured Moment

A black and white photograph of a mother and her young daughter on a swing in the middle of a wood - with the title "A perfect Mother's Day" - Mrs H's favourite things

Last week, I celebrated my third Mother's Day. Having suffered from recurrent miscarriages, I know how blessed I am to celebrate this day at all. Having children is much harder than it looks. Not the process of child rearing (although that has its good and bad days) but the process of creating, making and baking a baby. That is why I never take my family for granted and I am so grateful that they are a part of my life. And this year's…

Goodbye 2015

Happy New Year, dear readers. I hope you all celebrated New Year's Eve in style. We had a very quiet night in. Mr H and I celebrated by eating steak and chips and by playing lots of Wii and board games. It was very low key but it was lovely to spend the evening with my wonderful husband. It is now 2nd January 2016 and it is about time that I did a little review of 2015. 2015 was an odd year. It wasn't…

My Captured Moment – My eight pictures of happiness

I have seen a number of bloggers share their eight photographs of happiness. These posts are lovely and I find the happiness in them contagious. They share memories of days filled with joy or photographs of loved ones. With that in mind, I decided that this week's My Captured Moment would be eight captured moments. These are the moments that I always want to remember. They are times I treasure. And they are photographs that always bring a smile to my…

Because I’m happy – week 1

"Because I'm happy...clap along if you know what happiness is to you...." Listening to this line made me realise that happiness isn't always easy to come by. Sometimes you have to work hard at creating your happiness. Or at least, you need to make an effort to see that every day contains moments of happiness. Even if they are fleeting.…
