Back in September, Mr H and I celebrated our tenth wedding anniversary. We were lucky enough to have a weekend away. Just the two of us. And Mr H’s parents very kindly agreed to stay at our house with the kids. As we left the house on the Friday, Mr H’s mum was holding Little Mister H up by our kitchen window so he could wave at us as we drove off. It was lovely to see him with a…

Finding Happiness And Chasing Rainbows – October 2018

Last month, I decided that I needed to restart writing about the happy moments in my life and share the times that bring me joy and put a smile on my face. So Finding Happiness And Chasing Rainbows was born. Happiness isn’t always easy to come by. Sometimes you have to work hard at finding your happiness. You have to search for happiness, chase after it and once you’ve found it then hold onto it. That is why I think…

Mr H proposed to me on Saturday 13th January 2006. It was a wonderful surprise and after bursting into tears and thanking him, I said yes. I was then keen to find a date for our big day. And I campaigned for us to get married nine days before my 30th birthday. I was dreading becoming 30 years old. So it seemed a great idea to have my birthday while being on honeymoon. What could be more perfect than spending…

Jumping At The Chance To Try Bassetts Vitamins Omega-3 + Multivitamins Orange Flavour Pastilles

A photograph of a little girl wearing her school uniform and standing in her garden and in her hand she is holding a Bassetts Vitamins Omega-3 + Multivitamins Orange Flavour Pastille - Jumping At The Chance To Try Bassetts Vitamins Omega-3 + Multivitamins Orange Flavour Pastilles _ Mrs H's favourite things

This is a paid collaborative post with Bassetts Vitamins to launch their brand new Bassetts Vitamins Omega-3 + Multivitamins Orange Flavour Pastilles and their #MyBassettsVits campaign. Little Miss H is very particular about what she eats and drinks. We have endless negotiations at dinner about how much chicken/broccoli/tomato she needs to eat before she can have any dessert. I guess I’m lucky that Little Miss H does actually like some healthy things (cucumber, beetroot and carrots are among her favourites).…

When I originally began to write this blog it was as a form of therapy. My chronic depression and anxiety had relapsed and I’d been signed off sick for three months. I was seeing a therapist and she suggested that I start writing a blog about the things in my life that make me happy. Those little things that put a smile on your face. That show you that finding happiness even on the worst days is possible. Over the…

I’ve been a blogger for a long time now, and during that time I’ve read some amazing blogs written by people that I now consider friends. I’ve read blog posts that have made me cry and others that have made me laugh. Writing that’s inspiring and writing that’s educational. These are words on a screen that have made me feel less alone. That have reached out and given me a virtual hug when I needed one. They’ve helped me realise…
