#LivingArrows – Pirates At Play 8/52 (2017)

Welcome to this weeks edition of #LivingArrows. I cannot believe that we are already eight weeks into 2017, time seems to be on the run these days.

Half term has finally arrived along with some random flu like bug which has been doing the rounds. Bloody typical isn’t it? The first day of the holidays together as a family has been spent shivering and sweating in the sitting room, not exactly what I had planned nor imagined for that matter!

Thankfully by dinner time Paul and I were both feeling a little better, with a little luck we may be able to get out tomorrow and either go swimming, have a trip to the cinema, take the kids to soft play or anything really so long as it gives us time together outside of the house.… Read more from this post

#LivingArrows – Polly & The Pirates 7/52 (2017)

Welcome to this weeks edition of #LivingArrows from the madhouse or as I like to refer to it ‘home’.

Time as always is flying by and already we have reached mid-February. As you are probably well aware Cupid is on the loose as it’s Valentines Day tomorrow.

To celebrate I decided to get my children a little something to let them know how much we love them. I have of course also got something for my hubby but will share this tomorrow to avoid spoiling any surprises.

Princess Polly

As a little girl I loved to play with dolls, there was of course Tiny Tears, the overgrown baby and Sindy who far outshone Barbie in my eyes. … Read more from this post

#LivingArrows – Growing Up Fast 6/52 (2017)

Welcome to this weeks #LivingArrows, a weekly post in which I share a photo of each of our beautiful children.

With the weather being much like that famous 90’s band (Wet Wet Wet) we’ve been making the most of playing indoors. Don’t get me wrong, I am all for jumping in muddy puddles but it’s also bloody windy out there which doesn’t make for much fun.

Princess Anna Gets Wheels

E has recently become rather attached to her Princess Anna dress, so much so that she insisted upon wearing the damn thing for four days running. As sweet as it may be, having to take it on and off for every meal time can get rather tedious at times.… Read more from this post

#LivingArrows – I Want My MTV 5/52 (2017)

Welcome to this weeks disco dancing edition of #LivingArrows brought to you directly ‘from the club’.

Having returned home from an energetic kick-boxing session, J found his little sister dressed once again as ‘Anna’ from Frozen desperate for some fun and why not? That’s what big brothers are for!

Following a quick flick through the Music channels, the children decided to boogie on down to disco town.

We spent almost twenty minutes in total flicking back and forth between the music channels trying to find those which were actually playing Music and weren’t showing adverts which was almost every bloody channel . … Read more from this post

#LivingArrows – Siblings That Share 4/52 (2017)

Welcome to this weeks edition of #LivingArrows where I share the proof that shock horror- my children are actually able to share!

Until now asking my children to share anything has often resulted in a full blown tantrum including screaming, crying, stomping and the odd door being slammed. Thankfully as the kids have grown older they have learnt that spitting the dummy isn’t particularly effective in promoting friendship or play.

E was rather lucky to receive a Furby Connect from Santa for Christmas. This rather bright pink, fluffy, noisy little Monster has since become a firm favourite with both of the kids and is so well used that the damn thing requires new batteries almost every twenty-four hours.… Read more from this post

#LivingArrows – Sky High 3/52 (2017)

Welcome to this weeks #LivingArrows, a weekly post in which I share a photo of each of my little ones. It’s been a busy week with one thing and another when isn’t it a busy week? I haven’t had an awful lot of time to take photos, I did however manage to find these two shots to share with you.

Whilst checking J’s school Tumblr pictures I found this beauty. It seems that the kids have created a large canvas on which to pose for some ‘aerial’ shots. I love this picture, it reminds me of a similar image from Winnie The Pooh.… Read more from this post
