#Living Arrows – Birthdays & Bikes 21/52 (2017)

Welcome to this weeks edition of #LivingArrows, a weekly post in which I share a couples of snaps of the kids. I love this linky for many reasons but mainly because it literally forces me to shoot pictures which are then recorded in a weekly format which over time has become a fantastic resource to look back upon.

We’ve certainly made some serious memories over the past few months, this weekend was particularly memorable given that J turned eight years old. We celebrated in style with his friends at the local Zero Gravity trampoline park followed by a trip to load up on carbs at Maccy D’s.… Read more from this post

#LivingArrows ‘Kisses & Kicking It’ 20/52 (2017)

Welcome to this weeks edition of #LivingArrows, a weekly post in which I share an image of each of my little ones. The past seven days have once again flown by and all in honesty I have barely blogged as I’ve had very little to say but I promise I will rectify this shortly especially with Blog On being just around the corner!

 

Kicking It

Whilst I was busy pulling pints behind the bar on Sunday my son was down at the dojo showing them ‘how it’s done’ aka being graded for his orange karate/ kickboxing belt’. Both Paul and I were worried about how he might get on given that he’s found certain moves challenging to memorise but as always ‘J brought it’ on the day and stunned not only his Daddy and I but also his instructor and peers alike.… Read more from this post

#LivingArrows – Independence 19/52 (2017)

It’s Monday once again, the start of yet another week, god knows what might happen over the next seven days, if it’s anything like the past few weeks then I may as well give up guessing. One things for sure, no day is ever the same as another in this household! Theres that much going on I can barely keep on a grip on my own schedule never mind a family of four.

At least these days my children seem to be gaining some independence and can do a few things for themselves. I no longer have to do absolutely everything for them, these days I only have to do about 90% of the work you know how it is folks!… Read more from this post

#LivingArrows – Cuddles With The Kids 18/52 (2017)

Welcome to yet another edition of #LivingArrows, a weekly post in which I share a few photos of my beautiful kidlets.

I’m a sucker for a tight cuddle, if koalas could be kept as pets I’d have one just for the hugs. Although I’d hate to think what a koala might do to my furniture not that I have a great deal of bamboo but still like a lot of things in life it wouldn’t be worth the mess.

Heres a couple of snaps of the kids and I having a moment together which were taken throughout the week. It’s been one of those weeks where I’ve felt as if I’ve needed a squeeze and who better to grab some loving from than my children?… Read more from this post

#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
