Meet Hannah

This is all about me and our family. We don’t quite fit in a box as we’re a bit unconventional in our way.

The Girl


I’m Hannah, I’m a thirty-something Mummy. I love hanging out with my hubby, our foster son, our little boy and our friends. When I hit my teens, I would try to keep up with the boys and would eat more than I probably needed to. Because of this and how I dealt with food after univeristy (and starting a desk job) I ended up overweight. Since August 2013, I’ve been trying to lose weight and get my BMI down to a healthy range. In the middle of that, I got pregnant and had Jaxon. Since 2014, I’ve been trying to work on getting healthy. Some of this blog is about that.

I love writing and started my own business around a year ago as a Social Media Consultant and Virtual Assistant. My business is called Daisy Media.

The Boy

That Boy

This is Chris, he’s The Boy or That Boy as my Dad used to refer to him! We got married in 2007, became foster carers in 2011 and parents in 2014. Chris didn’t grow up in Bedford but he moved here for me and then for his job. He has wanderlust and loves to travel. He had a huge heart for young people and wants to see them (and me) achieve our best and reach for the stars. Chris has been wanting to change the world in whatever form that comes but currently he’s working as a web developer for a company in Milton Keynes.

Our Sidekick

I think I have a dementer in my kitchen. #harrypotter

Our Sidekick is now almost 21 and he came to live with us in October 2011. To begin with, it was a temporary measure but now he’s been with us since and is part of our random slightly disjointed “clan”. He moved out for a little while then came back again. He’s with us for a few more weeks then will be moving out.

The (Little) Boy


This is Jaxon. He’s our little boy. He’s almost 6 and creating havoc on a regular basis. He loves trains, cars and Lego. He goes to the local primary school and loves Maths and IT (just like his Daddy!)

You can keep up with our adventures by reading our Dear Jaxon posts.

The Littlest Member

Rex aka The Bump

In December 2019, we found out I was pregnant and we’re now excited for the arrival of our latest family member. In February 2020, following our 12-week scan, we let the family in on the surprise. Unlike Jaxon who went by Blueberry, this bump has been called Rex. It’s now Spring 2020 and we’re counting down the weeks and wondering how things will work in the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Why do I Write This Blog?

This blog started back in about 2007 as The Journal of A Rock Angel. Yes I have no idea where the name came from but it was a starting point. It’s grown and developed since then and changed names. It went from that to The Scribbles of GirltaristHan, to Hannah Says and then Han Plans as it is now. I’m sure there were other interpretations too.

    A lovely piece of someones life….a thoroughly enjoyable read and a good lesson to anyone who thinks they know someone…well done hannah, keep up the writing, its perserverance over time that gets you recognised, its blind luck that gets you notorious….

      Hi Glenn

      Thanks for taking the time to comment 🙂 it’s exciting to know that people are reading rather than me just writing to the universe lol.

      H 🙂

    Hi Hannah,
    I came over from the A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal page. Your blog was listed as # 228. I was curious to see what Hannah had to say…my own Hannah is 7 turning 8 in a few days and she can say plenty when given the airtime…so I wondered if you would be the same 🙂

    I’m looking forward to seeing you at the Challenge. Take care!

    Aw, that’s a great run-down, Hannah! It’s great to learn a little about your family, and I love the way you have the segments about each of you. 🙂

    I love HIMYM! That is awesome you have found something to bond with him over. So great! And that baby is too cute!

    That is wonderful that you and your husband are foster parents! I have several friends and acquaintances who have undertaken this awesome journey of being foster parents (and, in some cases, adopting) and I know that it can be overwhelmingly difficult but incredibly rewarding for parents and children alike.

      Hey! Sorry I had meant to reply and then didn’t! Oops! Fostering can be hard work but the results are so worth it. Our Sidekick got his GCSE results this week and we’re so proud of him and what he’s achieved.
