A while back the lovely people at Diono sent me their brand new travel system to review. Since attending the launch event and writing up my first impressions about the Diono Quantum travel system, I’ve been putting this fabulous new buggy through its paces. (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…

A photograph of a little girl's first ever pair of school shoes which are from the website Jake Shoes and a pair of black patent Lelli Kelly School Shoes - The First pair of school shoes with Jake Shoes - Mrs H's favourite things

Little Miss H starts Primary School next week. Sob sob sob. It’s going to be a day full of emotion. So I’ve been trying to get as prepared as possible. This includes buying all her school uniform. And of course, the first pair of school shoes is a crucial part of this uniform. Little feet go through so much. Especially when at school. They run, jump, skip, dance, climb trees and burn off huge amounts of energy. EVERY DAY! Therefore,…

Little Miss H in Miffy’s world

A photograph of a mother and her two children settling down to a bedtime story of the Miffy book by Dick Bruna "Miffy at School" - the photograph shows a close up of one of the illustrations of Miffy in the book - Little Miss H in Miffy's World - Mrs H's favourite things

The Miffy books have always been favourites of ours. Miffy is now over 60 years old and is still looking good for her age. The famous little white rabbit was the invention of Dutch artist Dick Bruna, who sadly died earlier in 2017. And since her birth Miffy has been the subject of books, a TV series and a film. We recently received a bundle of Miffy goodies in the post to review. And so lately, we’ve been enjoying Miffy…

And we made sure to include our Quinny Zapp Flex Plus which we had recently been sent by the lovely people at Quinny. The…

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…
