The Ultimate Apple And Blackberry Crumble Recipe

A photograph of the ultimate Apple and Blackberry Crumble in a white china dish on a wooden board and with a sterling silver serving spoon - the apple and blackberry crumble is filled with beautiful and succulent apple and blackberries and covered in a yummy crunchy crumble that is topped with porridge oats - The Ultimate Apple and Blackberry Crumble Recipe - Mrs H's favourite things

The recent odd weather has meant that the hedgerows near us are already filled with ripe and juicy blackberries. And ever since I spied them, on a recent walk down to the woods, Little Miss H and I’ve been desperate to make apple and blackberry crumble. Last Saturday, when Mr H was at football, I thought that we’d take advantage of the sunshine and go blackberry picking. We had so much fun. And Little Miss H loved pointing out the…

The Sadness Of Not Being Able To Breastfeed My Babies – My Breastfeeding Story

A sepia tinted photograph of a newborn baby girl having skin to skin and lying in her Mummy's arms - The Sadness of Not Being Able to Breastfeed My Babies - Mrs H's favourite things

This week is World Breastfeeding Week 2017. A week dedicated to promoting, protecting and supporting breastfeeding. I agree with it wholeheartedly. But this week has made me sad. Because I still have issues about the fact that I was not able to breastfeed my babies. Little Miss H is now four years old. But even after all this time, I feel guilt that I was not able to breastfeed. And I feel a tug in my heart every time I…

In the Night Garden Live – a review

A little girl's face of pure joy, happiness and excitement as Iggle Piggle appears on the stage at a performance of In The Night Garden Live at Blackheath - In The Night Garden Live - A Review - Mrs H's favourite things

Little Miss H has always been completely entranced with In the Night Garden. She adores Upsy Daisy and the Tombliboos. And she used to love making Mr H and I join her in the gazebo dance. So I knew that she would be over the moon when we were offered tickets to see In the Night Garden Live. And she LOVED the show. She was so happy sitting next to her Daddy and watching the performance. Seeing the pure excitement and…

Why We Won’t Talk To Our Children About Terrorism But We Will Talk About Democracy

Why we won't be talking to our children about the threat of terrorism but we will talk to them about the power of Democracy - A photograph of an innocent and beautiful little girl sitting in front of a window and bathed in sunlight - Why we won't talk to our children about the threat of terrorism but we will talk to them about the power of Democracy - Mrs H's favourite things

It has been a week of mixed emotions. The sadness and fear of the terrorist attacks in London. The loving unity and joy of the One Love concert in Manchester. And the hope of a General Election. At times like this, I feel parenthood weigh heavy on my shoulders. What should we tell our children? Should we tell them anything at all? Why we won’t talk to our children about the threat of terrorism… We have a four-year old daughter, who is constantly curious.…

Our June 2017 bucket list

How can we possibly be at the end of the third day of June already? This year is zooming by. And I’m certain that since having Little Mister H I have entered into a parallel universe where time moves twice as fast. May was a wonderful month. It was the month Little Miss H turned four. And we seemed very busy. I’ve got a feeling that June is going to be a fabulous month too. And it’s already off to a brilliant start. As…

Parenting Lessons From Bluebells

walking through the bluebell woods i learnt something about parenting and life. I learnt a valuable life lesson. Parenting lessons from bluebells - Mrs H's favourite things

How did you spend your May Day Bank Holiday? I spent it going through boxes and boxes of baby clothes. Tiny outfits that our little girl and boy wore when they were younger. The first sleepsuit that we dressed them in when they were born. The outfit they wore when we brought them home. The dungarees they were wearing when they met their grandparents. The party outfits that we bought for their Welcome to the World celebrations. Looking through these…

Beautiful Summer Clothes From JoJo Maman Bébé

A photograph of a beautiful nine month old baby boy modelling some Beautiful Summer Clothes from JoJo Maman Bébé and particularly the Dinosaur Print Baby Dungarees and the White Poloshirt Baby Bodysuit - Beautiful Summer Clothes from JoJo Maman Bébé - Mrs H's favourite things

The recent glimmers of sunshine have turned my thoughts to summer. I can already imagine Little Miss running around the garden in pretty summer dresses. Or Little Mister H taking his first tentative steps while wearing a cute pair of dungarees (I do love my boy in dungarees). And JoJo Maman Bébé is always my first port of call when I am looking to buy beautiful summer clothes for my children. We were very lucky that JoJo Maman Bébé recently sent Little…
