The day I closed the door and walked away

A photograph of a blonde haired, rosey cheeked and blue eyed 16 month old baby boy sitting on his bedroom floor and playing with some wooden toys - The Day I Closed The Door and Walked Away - Mrs H's favourite things

A photograph of a young brunette woman standing outside and wearing a blue ruffle sleeve jumper from JD Williams and grey skinny jeans and a pair of grey ankle boots - this is a photo of her modelling her new Mummy Style - Finding My Mummy Style With JD Williams and their Autumn/ Winter Collection - Mrs H's favourite things

Before I was a Mummy, I wore a wide variety of clothes. I loved to wear a smart dress with opaque tights and heels to work. But now I’m a mum those clothes aren’t practical and lurk in my wardrobe unloved and unworn. My mummy style isn’t one that I’m particularly happy with. It consists mainly of jeans and t-shirts. It isn’t very stylish and it can look frumpy. When JD Williams contacted me and asked me to review some…

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 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…
