18 for 2018

A photograph of a beautiful and colourful sunset with the shadows of a wood in the foreground - 18 for 2018 - Mrs H's favourite things

Over the past few months, I’ve begun to listen to Podcasts. One of my favourite podcasts is Happier by Gretchen Rubin, the author of The Happiness Project. In one of her recent podcasts, she shared her list of 18 things she plans to do in 2018. As soon as I heard Gretchen and her sister discuss their 18 for 2018 lists, I knew that I had to write one for my blog. It’s part bucket list and part goal setting but…

Have a Troll-tastic Christmas with Trolls Holiday

A photograph of a little girl standing in front of a Christmas tree. She is wearing a Trolls t-shirt from George in ASDA. She is also holding a copy of Trolls Holiday - Having a Troll-tastic Christmas with Trolls Holiday - Mrs H's favourite things

The first time Little Miss H saw the Trolls film, she didn’t seem that taken by it. Which was a shame because all of her friends seemed really into it. But after a second viewing at a friend’s house, she became completely infatuated. After that, we had 6 solid months of listening to the Trolls soundtrack non-stop and watching the Trolls movie at least 3 times a week. Princess Poppy was even the guest of honour at Little Miss H’s…

Our Christmas Tree Day

A photograph of a young girl wearing an angel costume and standing by a Christmas tree and holding a fairy Christmas tree ornament - Photographs of decorating our Christmas tree - Our Christmas Tree Day - Mrs H's favourite things

Ahhhh Christmas. It’s such a magical time. It’s even more magical now we have children. You see Christmas through their eyes. The excitement of seeing a tiny Christmas elf door appear outside your bedroom or of getting to unwrap a book every day during Advent. We always put our Christmas tree up in the first weekend in December. We want Christmas to last as long as possible. But we don’t like to start it in November and our tree tends to…

Flitterbee Christmas Elf Door – A Review

A photograph of the Opening Christmas Elf Door with Santa Claus Scene from Flitterbee - it is a beautiful miniature door painted in red and with glitter, a tiny Christmas wreath, a tiny ornate door handle and letter box - also included are a lovely poem to explain what to do with your door - some magic fairy dust - and a small elf key - surrounded by fairy lights - Flitterbee Opening Christmas Elf Door - A Review - Mrs H's favourite things

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…

A photograph of a mother carrying her son in a Pao Papoose baby carrier and walking up a hill in a beautiful park following her four year old daughter - 39 Life Lessons for 39 Years - Mrs H's favourite things

On Friday 29th September 2017, I will turn 39. I’m one year off the big 4-0. And as much as I’ve loved my thirties, I’m actually looking forward to this new era of my life. An era which I get to spend with my fabulous husband and my two gorgeous rainbow babies. It’s exciting. I also find that as I age I learn more and more about myself and how to live in this world. So back in 2015, I wrote…

A while back the lovely people at Diono sent me their brand new travel system to review.

(With some help from Little Mister H of course!) I thought it was about time that I write-up some more considered thoughts about the Diono Quantum Travel System.

Celebrating our Rainbow Baby with Party Pieces

A photograph of a beautiful 7 month old baby boy at his Welcome to the World party celebrating the birth of our second rainbow baby - Celebrating Our Rainbow Baby with Party Pieces - Little Mister H's Welcome to the World Party - Mrs H's favourite things

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that Little Miss H and Little Mr H are rainbow babies. This means that both our children were born following baby loss. And they are the bright and beautiful rainbows in the sky after the heartbreaking storms of miscarriage. After three miscarriages we’d almost given up hope of having a second child. And so the pregnancy with Little Mister H was always going to be our last. No matter how it…
