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…

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…

Sylvanian Families Ballet Theatre Playset and Sea Otter Family – A Review

I’ve always had a special place in my heart for Sylvanian Families. They were my favourite toy as a child. And I’d spend hours in my room playing with my bear family and their cosy cottage. I really hoped that Little Miss H would come to love Sylvanian Families as much as I did. She is such a creative child and I knew that these fabulous figures would be perfect for imaginative play. When Little Miss H turned four in…

Gardening myself happy with BloomBox Club

A photograph of a woman gardening - she is kneeling by a flower bed and planting one of the plants from the Spring Outdoor box from BloomBox Club Subscription service - Gardening myself happy with BloomBox Club - Mrs H's favourite things

As a child, I used to help my parents out in the garden. And I’d always enjoyed gardening. But, until just after Little Miss H’s second birthday, I’d never had a garden of my own. After I met Mr H we lived in a flat in London and we later bought a two-bedroom apartment in Medway. It was only when we moved into our current house that we finally had some outdoor space. On the day we moved in, I…

We’ve been working with the fabulous brand We Made Me since Little Mister H was first born. We’ve previously reviewed their stretchy wrap, the Wuti Wrap. And we’ve also been sent the Pao Papoose Carrier and Soohu Sling to test. The Wuti Wrap was amazing and in the first few months after Little Mister H was born it was used during every dinner and bedtime. It was the only way that I managed to survive those croup filled evenings. However,…
