Today has been one of those days. One of those days that hasn't gone as planned. One of those days that is drawing to a close and has left me exhausted and a little emotional. Yesterday was also one of those days.…

My Monthly Bucket List – October 2016

October is one of my favourite months of the year. The skies are blue but the weather is cooler and there is an autumnal chill in the air. The leaves have started turning and falling in piles perfect for collecting and kicking. Yet, the woods behind our house are still dappled with green. My sandals have been packed away and the boots are out. It is too cold to go outside without a jacket but the winter coats, hats, gloves and scarfs…

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…

Our baby gender reveal

Having the 20 week scan on Thursday helped me relax. It was a great milestone to reach and it was wonderful to see our baby fidgeting away. I am always nervous before scans. I worry about the worst case scenario. And I sit in the waiting room sick from nerves and excitement. Thankfully, the scan went well. Baby is healthy and everything looks as it should do. And yes, we did find out the gender. Just as we did when I was pregnant…

Because I’m happy – December 2015 and January 2016

Last week was tough. Little Miss H had a very nasty sickness bug, which she eventually shared with me. It wasn't pleasant. But we are now on the road to recovery. And this afternoon has been hard. My emotions are all over the place at the moment and I often feel very tearful. To cheer myself up I think it is about time to write a new Because I'm happy post. I always love these blog posts. They never fail to put…

Days out in the winter sunshine – My Captured Moment

As a family we love going for days out. It is a chance for us to get out in the sunshine, absorb some Vitamin D and enjoy the sites of Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding area. It also allows us to spend quality time together. To laugh, to talk and to be a family. Mr H took some time off over Christmas. When the weather was nice, we packed up the car and went to parks, farms and on a hunt for…
