“The true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life.” William Morris The past few months have been tough. Yet I’ve entered 2018 with a new and positive outlook. I’ve set myself some goals and I’m looking forward to the year ahead. Like most people, I’m constantly in the pursuit of happiness. I want my life to be filled with experiences and moments that make me happy. But recently I’ve realised that happiness…

When The Words Won’t Flow

A photograph of a woman with brown hair wearing a red plaid shirt and red lipstick - she is looking down and away from the camera - she looks pensive - When the words don't flow - talking to children about Depression and Anxiety - Mrs H's favourite things

Sometimes when I write about my depression the words just flow. It’s as if they were always there just waiting to be written down in black and white. On other occasions, I want to write but the words aren’t forthcoming. They won’t flow. Words are created and deleted. Sentences are written and rewritten. Paragraphs are formed and unformed. I can start a post about one thing and then it becomes about something completely different. For example, when I sat down to…

Over the past few months, I’ve begun to listen to Podcasts. One of my favourite podcasts is Happier by Gretchen Rubin, the author of The Happiness Project. In one of her recent podcasts, she shared her list of 18 things she plans to do in 2018. As soon as I heard Gretchen and her sister discuss their 18 for 2018 lists, I knew that I had to write one for my blog. It’s part bucket list and part goal setting but…

A photograph of a little girl standing in front of a Christmas tree. She is wearing a Trolls t-shirt from George in ASDA. She is also holding a copy of Trolls Holiday - Having a Troll-tastic Christmas with Trolls Holiday - Mrs H's favourite things

The first time Little Miss H saw the Trolls film, she didn’t seem that taken by it. Which was a shame because all of her friends seemed really into it. But after a second viewing at a friend’s house, she became completely infatuated. After that, we had 6 solid months of listening to the Trolls soundtrack non-stop and watching the Trolls movie at least 3 times a week. Princess Poppy was even the guest of honour at Little Miss H’s…

Our Christmas Tree Day

A photograph of a young girl wearing an angel costume and standing by a Christmas tree and holding a fairy Christmas tree ornament - Photographs of decorating our Christmas tree - Our Christmas Tree Day - Mrs H's favourite things

Ahhhh Christmas. It’s such a magical time. It’s even more magical now we have children. You see Christmas through their eyes. The excitement of seeing a tiny Christmas elf door appear outside your bedroom or of getting to unwrap a book every day during Advent. We always put our Christmas tree up in the first weekend in December. We want Christmas to last as long as possible. But we don’t like to start it in November and our tree tends to…
