#LivingArrows – Loving Lowther 17/52 (2017)

The holidays are officially over, the kids are back at Nursery and School and the house suddenly seems a whole lot quieter. I’m all for some peace and quiet but suddenly things feel rather empty, I miss the chaos!

I guess I can finally clean the house top to bottom without the kids having turned out yet another box of mini-figures, Lego or god knows what else they fancy throwing all over every other surface. Still, I miss them both and having received E’s school admission results earlier this week it’s only a matter of time before both of my little ones are out of the house for the majority of the day.… Read more from this post

#LivingArrows – Easter Entertainment 16/52 (2017)

The first week of the Easter break is officially over. It’s been great having the kids at home, they’ve really needed the rest after working and of course playing so hard at School and Nursery.

Despite our shifts at work and the mixed weather we seem to be having, we’ve done our very best to keep the kids entertained both inside and out over the week.

J and E have enjoyed numerous walks out to the beach and trips to the park. It’s so lovely to be able to do things as and when without the pressures of the daily grind.… Read more from this post

#LivingArrows – Water Babies 15/52 (2017)

Welcome to this weeks rather summery edition of #LivingArrows, a weekly post in which I share a photo or two of my perfect pair before you wonder how the hell you stumbled upon this website and what on earth you about to view, worry not as I am of course referring to my two beautiful children!


The Towel Trendsetter

Having had a couple of hours fun splashing around in the local swimming baths we got the kids washed, dry and changed ready for their journey home. Over the years E has grown a rather stunning head of hair which whilst is incredibly beautiful is also incredibly thick and takes a long time to dry.… Read more from this post

#LivingArrows – Wrapped Up Like A Mummy 14/52 (2017)

Welcome to this weeks rather tired and defeated edition of #LivingArrows. I’m don’t know about you but the end of term cannot come soon enough for us!

I’m not sure whose more ready for a break, the kids or us! Both E’s Nursery and J’s School seem to have slotted in as many activities as humanly possible before the kids break up.

Concerts, charity raising, odd sock days, dress-up days, parents evenings, throw in a few medical and dentist appointments and the diary is jam-packed! It feels as if we haven’t had a day without some or other to pack or to remember.… Read more from this post

#LivingArrows Sand Dune Strolls 13/52 (2017)

What wonderful weather we’ve been having this week, the kids have shed their winter coats, the Ugg boots have been put back into the wardrobe and the shades are firmly back in place following what felt like a really long winter.

It’s been blue skies all weekend and the kids made the very best of the good weather by spending their time out and about in the garden digging mud pools which I wont mention and taking long strolls upon the sand dunes with their Daddy.

Here are a few pictures that Paul snapped one-handed whilst simultaneously yanking the dog along and chasing the kids.… Read more from this post

#LivingArrows – My Little Monkeys 12/52 (2017)

Welcome to another week of #LivingArrows where I share a picture of each of my children. Our kids like to monkey around climbing, kicking and keeping active whilst giving us parents early heart failure as we desperately try to keep them alive on a daily basis.

E is forever being told to get down from this, that and the other. I swear I must say “get down young lady” at least ten times a day and despite telling her on a daily basis it never really seems to sink in.

Whether it’s climbing things at the park that technically shouldn’t be climbed upon, walking along the top of the sofa or scaling her brothers bunk bed, E is a natural climber and loves nothing more than to scale great heights no matter how many times she’s told otherwise.… Read more from this post
