Little Miss H is now six years old and Little Mister H is three. So it seems silly that I’m writing their birth stories now.

A Family Update

A photograph of a Dad and his young son standing in the doorway of Bodiam Castle - A Family Update - Mrs H's favourite things

First of all, I want to say that this is NOT a pregnancy announcement. But as I sit here watching England win the Cricket World Cup (amazing), I realised that I haven’t given you an update about what is happening in our family in forever.
