Getting Through November

I have to say it. I hate November. In my opinion, it is the hardest month of the year. And it is the month where I always struggle with my depression. I didn't always feel this way. As a child and a teenager I was indifferent to November. Nothing exciting happened. I spent the days waiting for December and the count down to Christmas. That all changed on Saturday, 23rd November 2002. That was the day that I made serious plans to take my life…

These happy posts are becoming my favourite to write and share. I love spending time looking through my photographs and remembering all the lovely moments that have taken place over the past month.

Pumpkins, Pumpkins Everywhere – A Parragon Book Buddies Review

A little girl wearing pink and navy, sits on a blanket in the garden and reads the book Pumpkins, Pumpkins Everywhere_with the post title "Pumpkins, Pumpkins Everywhere"_A Parragon Book Buddies Review_Mrs H's favourite things

I mentioned back in September that we are lucky enough to have been chosen as Parragon Book Buddies. This means that Little Miss H is sent a book every month to review. Recently, Little Miss H and I have been filled with colds and viruses. So sadly I did not manage to get the review for Pumpkins, Pumpkins Everywhere up in time for Halloween. Which is such a pity as this book would have been perfect for the spookiest day of…

I am back with my second vlog. Once again, I am taking part in Vlog Club and this month's prompt is to share my top five favourite books. It has been almost impossible to limit it to just five books. I love reading and before becoming a mum I used to read a book a week. There is so much wonderful literature out there that I love. And there were many other books that I could have included in this list. If…
