A photograph of a coaster, with a blue water colour effect on and the words "just breathe" - A Few Hours of Self-Care - A Review of The Space Retreat - Mrs H's favourite things

This year I’m making a very conscious decision to look after my health. I’ve realised that I’m important. I’m the cornerstone of my family. I need to treat myself with the respect I deserve. So I’m trying to make time for self-care. And back at the beginning of the year, I found the perfect place to escape for a few hours. At The Space Retreat, I was able to spend some time putting myself first. The Space Retreat In January,…

A photo of a Daddy, his daughter and son standing underneath the sign for Animals of the Ice Age at Howletts Wild Animal Park - A Good Friday Trip to see Animals of the Ice Age - Mrs H's favourite things

Today the sun shone. In fact, the weather was beautiful this afternoon. Which was Sod’s Law because yesterday we’d been invited to Howletts Wild Animal Park to review their new experience, Animals of the Ice Age. And of course, yesterday was cold and wet. Not the ideal weather for spending a day outside looking for animals. However, we still had a wonderful time and we were all very impressed with the new exhibit. Animals of the Ice Age at Howlett’s…

A photograph of a young girl playing the Shopkins Happy Places App from Kuato Studios - Shopkins Happy Places App Review - Mrs H's favourite things

Little Miss H is a huge Shopkins fan. These tiny and collectable toys from Moose Toys first entered our lives a few years ago when we reviewed Shopkins: Chef Club, the first official Shopkins movie. Since then Little Miss H has collected a huge number of these grocery store characters with cute faces and individual names. She gets hugely excited when she manages to collect a rare or ultra-rare Shopkin. So I knew that Little Miss H would love to…

A photograph of a little girl playing imaginatively with the Casdon Mr Kipling Tea Set and Cake Stand - Imaginative Play with the Casdon Mr Kipling Tea Set - A Review - Mrs H's favourite things

Little Miss H loves imaginative play and has an amazing imagination. She can spend hours wearing dressing costumes, cooking in her kitchen or playing mummies with her dolls. And she is especially fond of throwing a tea party. She likes to invite her teddy’s and her baby brother along and pour them tea and serve them imaginary cake. So when we were offered the Casdon Mr Kipling Tea Set to review I knew that it would make her extremely happy.…

When Mr H was born he was given a soft toy panda bear. That panda bear, known as Panda, became not only his best friend but also a member of the family.

And Mr H’s sister would make him an outfit that matched the colours of the boat they were staying on during their holiday. When Panda was looking worn and…

One of our highlights of last summer was going to see In the Night Garden Live at its purpose-built Showdome in Blackheath. It was a wonderful show and we can’t wait to see it again this summer. I have to admit, that I was unsure how the children would respond to seeing In the Night Garden Live. They both LOVE the TV show but Little Miss H is wary of seeing live performances. I needn’t have worried. Both the children…

Last-minute Christmas shopping with B&M Stores

I can’t believe that there are just a few more shopping days until Christmas Day. Christmas does have a habit of creeping up on you quickly. And if you’re like me, then over the next few days you’ll need to be doing some last-minute Christmas shopping. If that is the case then you really should head to your local B&M Store. I’m lucky enough to be a B&M Store Blogger Ambassador and so I’ve been trawling their website to find…
