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. I thought I would give you a little update and (if I can remember) I will try and do this every few months. So this is what is currently happening and what has happened in…

Life Lessons that I Thought I’d Have Learnt By Now

A photograph of a woman sitting in a garden looking into the distance - The Life Lessons I Thought I Would Know By Now - Mrs H's favourite things

When I was a young adult and I looked at people in their 30s or 40s, I always assumed that they had this game of life sussed. They were mature adults. Surely, they knew exactly what they were doing. Surely, they’d learnt the lessons of how to live a happy and contented life. I looked at them in awe and believed they all lived perfect lives. They seemed filled with wisdom and knowledge and a confidence I couldn’t imagine possessing.…

A photo of a pretty house with flowers around the door - Creating A Homely Vibe That Will Make The Whole Family Happy - Mrs H's favourite things

This is a collaborative post The mission to create a lovely family home can feel like a constant uphill battle. When you’re living in a house with so many people, even a big home can start to feel very crowded. Plus, there’s the mess that people make (children and adults alike). Clutter starts to pile up, and the house slowly starts to shrink. Also, as your kids get older and bigger, they might not take the greatest care when shutting…

5 Things That Can Make You Feel Good

A photograph of a woman with her arms wide, smiling and enjoying the sunshine - 5 Things That Can Make You Feel Good - Mrs H's favourite things

This is a collaborative post. It’s safe to say that we don’t always feel at our best. As much as we’d all love to be able to look and feel incredible at all times, that very rarely happens. In fact, you’re more likely to find that you feel down more than you do good. Because the world can be an incredibly pressurized place. It’s easier than ever to be hard on yourself, and this is when things like depression can…

Our Weekend Happy 13 – Country Parks, Woodland Walks & Parties

A photograph of a blonde little boy in a swing on a sunny day in the park - Our Weekend Happy 13: Country Parks, Woodland Walks and a Birthday Party - Mrs H's favourite things

This is the thirteenth Our Weekend Happy post that I’ve written for this blog. I missed writing last week’s post, which wasn’t great. But in the end, it worked out quite well as we’ve just had quite a rubbish weekend. Mr H spent most of the weekend ill in bed and I had a terrible migraine. The poor children must have been so bored. But they were as good as gold and happily played on their own for most of the weekend.…

This is the twelfth Our Weekend Happy post that I’ve written for this blog. Last week’s post was filled with so many of my favourite things – a trip to the seaside and a visit from Auntie B. It was a lovely weekend. This week, I’ve decided to write a slightly different Our Weekend Happy post. (I do like to mix things up every now and then). Inspired by my lovely friend Kaye who blogs at Hello Archie, I’ve decided that this…

This is the eleventh Our Weekend Happy post that I’ve written for this blog. Last week’s post was a little different, as it was a review of our day out at the new Animals of the Ice Age exhibit at Howletts. This post also included my first day in the life video. I’d always assumed that I wasn’t creative enough to produce a Day in the Life video. But I’m really proud of this video. I would love it if you went…
