Is it really only Monday?! I’m not sure whether I’d like to restart the week or just cancel the whole thing to be honest. I’ve had a seriously shitty start to what is meant to be a fabulous family based week.

Mr Tax Man (or his cousin Mr Credits to be more precise) got in touch earlier today to let me know that he is obviously unable to use his calculator as there’s been a monumental cock-up with our tax credits payments.

Welcome to another week of ‘Living Arrows‘. Each week I share two photographs of my children to celebrate their progress in the walk of life. Here are this weeks contributions:

Welcome to this weeks ‘Living Arrows SunShine Days’ edition. The warmer weather seems to have completely converted my usual ‘get up and go’ into ‘chill out and slow’…It’s been a particularly slow going day, after cuddling a coughing toddler until 5am we were both fairly snail-like, thus this post is a tad late. Hey ho, when a toddlers ill you gotta go with the flow!

The Suns been out this week and usually hot weather inspires me to take uggins of photos, this week it seems I’ve been too busy soaking up the sun and having fun, but then that’s what life’s all about right?…
