I was thinking recently about all the time I spent in my early twenties wishing the world would stop so I could get off. I hated this world and thought life was pretty miserable. I know I was very ill; my depression meant I could not see beyond my own sadness. I was not able to appreciate the love of my friends and family, my time at university or all the wonderful opportunities put in front of me.
- Mr H and Little Miss H. I love each of these people individually but I also adore them as a double act. It makes me so very happy to see that Mr H is besotted with his daughter and I love seeing Little Miss H’s face light up when she is with her daddy.
- It has been wonderful to see our parents fall head over heels in love with their granddaughter.
- Making fabulous new friends. Before Little Miss H was born we booked ourselves onto NCT classes. It was the best money we ever spent. I love each and everyone of my NCT crew and their gorgeous babies and I couldn’t have got through the last few months without their friendship and support.
- Tucking myself up in bed (under nice clean sheets) and starting to read a new (non-baby related) book. Bliss.
- Having the time to actually dry my hair with a hairdryer.
- Fitting back into my favourite denim mini-skirt. I can be a yummy mummy, oh yes I can!
- Starting to exercise again. I’m currently becoming addicted to the 30 Day Shred.
- Mr H telling me I look pretty.
- Looking forward to a few days away as a family, a night out with two fabulous girlfriends and a date night.
- Autumn TV. The Great British Bake Off (I heart Mel and Sue); Masterchef Australia; Strictly Come Dancing and Downton Abbey – TV heaven.
- My favourite time of the year. I LOVE the autumn. I don’t like extremes and so spring and, especially, autumn are my favourite seasons.
- “Modern Family” – every episode makes me laugh.
- Rainbows – the recent sun and rain we’ve been having has produced some beautiful rainbows.
- Mr H is taking me and Little Miss H to London Zoo for my birthday. And it is going to be brilliant. We’re going to see lions and tigers and bears … Oh my!
