#LivingArrows – Perfect In Pyjamas 2/52 (2018)

Having spent most of the holidays parading in our pyjamas, the kids seem to have stuck to the habit and who can blame them? I find so much comfort just from putting on a pair of slippers, it’s the first thing I do upon arriving home. I can therefore understand my little ones love for lounge wear. I’d happily wear my pyjamas and dressing gown all day long if I could, as for fluffy bed socks – I can’t get enough of them!

With it being winter and slightly on the chilly side, E decided to wear her ‘Ninny (her word for bunny) onesie’ over her leotard, whilst on the way to her dance class this evening.…

#LivingArrows – Taking A Gamble & Our Pampered Princess 1/52 (2019)

Welcome to the first #LivingArrows post for 2019. If you haven’t read my previous posts within this series #LivingArrows is a linky (run by Donna from What The Redhead Said) celebrating childhood. The project originally took its name from a poem by Kahil Gibran “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” and each Monday I share moments from our week as part of this linky.

I’ll be honest, it hasn’t been the best Monday that I’ve ever had. I feel like I seem to be lacking purpose, motivation or something… I’m just not quite sure what I’m doing to be honest!…

#LivingArrows – Headbanz & Happy Little Readers 53/53 (2018)

It has most definitely been a cracking Christmas, the children were spoilt rotten and whilst we didn’t take a huge amount of photographs (as were a little occupied throughout the past week) here are a couple which I’d like to share with you for the final week of #LivingArrows in 2018.

I can barely believe that already we are at week 53/53! Where on earth has the time gone? It’s certainly been an incredible year, a life changing time and a year which I will never forget.

You cannot beat a good game or two over Christmas.…

#LivingArrows – Our Little Christmas Superstars 52/53 (2018)

Gosh, time sure flies by these days. It feels like only yesterday that I was writing the first post of the year for the #LivingArrows series, and here we are at week fifty-two already!

The kids have had a fun-filled, festive week. They have spent the past week counting down to Christmas whilst taking part in three amazing school shows. Both J & E knocked our socks off as they shone like stars (or starfish in J’s case) on stage. The kids were brimming with confidence, they were quite literally all-singing, all-dancing superstars.

It was an honour to be part of their production and to watch their work develop from a script into a show. …

#LivingArrows – Sofa Snuggles & Diva Dancers 51/53 (2018)

It’s been a whirlwind of a week, we have barely stopped to catch our breath. Both the kids and us adults are completely and utterly exhausted, we are most definitely on count down to the end of term, though even then it’s going to be busy as there’s still so much to get done before the big day.

J and I took a little time out earlier this week, we snuggled on the sofa and enjoyed a Christmas movie together. It’s been a while since I’ve taken time out on a one-to-one basis with J, we simply haven’t had the opportunity until now.…
