#LivingArrows – Happy 10th Birthday J 20/52 (2019)

It’s official, our little man is now double digits. I’m not entirely sure where those ten years went but they’ve certainly passed as out little man ain’t all that little anymore!

Happy 10th Birthday J

Despite spending his birthday at school, J has had a brilliant birthday. We got up early so that he had plenty of time to open his many cards and presents, he then spent the day with his friends having fun at the local Museum before coming home and opening yet more presents, blowing out his candles and eating shed loads of cake. Having waited for over an hour for Paul and I to assemble his new drum kit, he eventually had time playing with that too.…

#LivingArrows – Snakes & Sleepovers 19/52 (2019)

Talk about a busy weekend; we literally didn’t stop for a moments rest, well I didn’t at least. I swear my children think I’m their roady, I’m forever ferrying them to and fro various events.

E spent the entire weekend being the social butterfly that she is, attending not one but two birthday parties and a sleepover at her Grandparents. Having dressed to impress with sparkles galore, E arrived at the party brimming with confidence, so much so that she was happy to add further accessories to her outfit in the form of a snake…

That’s right, my precious little princess decided to rock wearing a reptile and whilst at it, she made friends with a frog, stroked some rats, petted a tortoise and lounged with a lizard.…

#LivingArrows – Bank Holiday Brain Freeze 18/52 (2019)

We didn’t really make any plans for the bank holiday, we’ve enough going on over the next few weeks without adding further outings to the list. We decided to keep things simple by enjoying a lazy morning sofa surfing in our pjs before a picnic lunch and an outing to the beach with the basset.

Having taken our usual route along the shore, we made our way back by the park, opposite which resides the beach cafe. J & E had their heart set on having ice creams, but I was well aware that with it being a bank holiday our chances were slim.…

#LivingArrows – Pride & Progress 17/52 (2019)

I’ve said this time and time again but I’ll say it once more – I couldn’t be a prouder parent. My kids may drive me up the wall and round the bend at times but I love them more than life itself. Not only do I vacuum and mop the floor upon which they walk, I worship the ground upon which they wander.

J is heading towards turning two-digits in age, I cannot believe that ten years have passed since I was the size of a house, desperate to meet my little man. The years have flown by – J is no longer little, he is now a rather tall and handsome young chap.…

#LivingArrows – Awesome Easter 16/52 (2019)

We have had the most amazing bank-holiday weekend; it has been one of the best Easters that we have ever had. The sun has shone continuously for the entire time and we are now much-like Lindt bunnies as we are golden, sun-kissed and chocolate-filled – what more could you ask for?

Over the past four days we’ve enjoyed photo shoots, meals out, evenings out, time with friends, live music, egg hunts, swimming, beach walks, playing on the park, water play, garden games and time with the family – it has been absolutely awesome!

The kids were spoilt rotten with easter eggs, chocolate, money, books, toys and all sorts of treats over the weekend.…
