#LivingArrows – The Horse Whisperer & The Karate Kid 31/52 (2017)

Welcome to this weeks rather late edition of #LivingArrows, a weekly post in which I share a few snaps of my little ones and tell you a little about what they may or may not have been up to.


The Horse Whisperer

Our little lady E will shortly turn four-years old which means that she will finally be old enough to ride a horse with insurance which of course is precisely what she intends to do following the big day. Already E delights in watching the beautiful beasts as the gallop past her whilst wandering along the beach.

I too am an avid horse rider but sadly unable to afford the cost or the possibility of breaking a bone that riding presents. I am however more than willing to pay out for my Princess to fulfil her dreams of trotting along the shoreline which given time and a little practice I am more than certain she will indeed do.

Here’s our little horse whisperer watching her the horses whilst out with her Daddy and Nana earlier this week.#LivingArrows - The Horse Whisperer & The Karate Kid 31/52 (2017)


The Karate Kid

J has come on leaps and bounds not only in terms of his school work but also in his extra-curricular clubs such as Karate. This time last year J had just been handed his yellow belt from his Teacher Stuart who is sadly no longer with us. A year later we miss Stuart terribly but the Dojo lives on in his honour and I’m damned sure that Stuart would be incredibly proud of this little man.

I for one am nuts about my little ninja turtle, he can be lazy at times but when focused and willing he puts in masses of effort and with a little determination I’m fairly sure that he follow in his Fathers footsteps.

    Lovely to see beautiful children with clear ideas about what they want to do

    That’s great he enjoys the focus of karate. It’s not something I know a lot about and wouldn’t even be on my radar as a club for N, but so many kids seem to do it nowadays #livingarrows

    I would love for Monkey to be able to ride but he’s allergic! I hope she has a lovely birthday and really enjoys the dream. Such a skill to learn a martial art and I like the discipline it also teaches! #LivingArrows

      It sure does teach discipline !

    It’s great that they’ve both got hobbies to focus on – horse riding sounds like it might be an expensive one though! #LivingArrows
