#LivingArrows – Days & Nights Out 48/53 (2018)

These past few months have been none-stop, we’ve done something almost every weekend and have found ourselves occupied with endless appointments, parties, meetings, after-school activities, clubs and goodness knows what else throughout the week.

Both Paul and I are exhausted, I’m pretty sure that the kids feel likewise. Life is most definitely busy, I barely get time to blog these days although try my best to keep up wherever and whenever I can.

We’ve enjoyed both days and nights out together as family, we’ve certainly played and partied hard. With it being the run up to Christmas, I highly doubt that we will have much time to relax before the big day. However, the kids seem to enjoy being kept busy, they have no reason to feign boredom at least.


J rather enjoyed his night out on the tiles celebrating his Great- Nana’s 100th birthday. Here is a rather handsome picture of our young man that I snapped as he took a turn on the decks.

Whilst out he met a fellow gaming fan and after plucking up the courage to communicate, they found themselves firm friends by the end of the night and I felt almost guilty for taking him home. J has come on leaps and bounds in terms of his confidence and cooperation around others, I am incredibly proud of his progress in every aspect of his life, although I often spend time reminding him not to grow up ‘too fast’.

Little Miss No Fear

E was elated to spend her weekend at the local Dickensian festival, our girl is an adrenalin junkie and will happily ride anything and everything, the scarier the better. Unfortunately this leaves me suffering with palpitations as I watch our precious princess scale great heights in random playhouses, helter skelters and such-like.

E is such an incredible young lady, she has a ‘no fear’ attitude and is willing to give almost anything a go, so long as her big brother comes along for the ride. Our little lady is brimming with confidence, she loves nothing more than to have an audience especially should she be singing or dancing.

Come this weekend the kids are off out to my folks for the night. Whilst we’d usually take full advantage of this opportunity by heading out for the evening, I’d much rather stick my jim-jams on and catch up on some much-needed rest. This is precisely what I’m planning to do as I simply cannot keep up with the pace. I’m sure the kids will have all kinds of fun meanwhile, I can use the time to kick back and to take five before the Christmas chaos commences.

Thanks for reading and as always I look forward to catching up with your #LivingArrows either through your own posts or comments upon this post.

    My youngest sounds exactly like E – he is also fearless. Maybe its a second child thing? I love that J did a bit of Dj’ing! #LivingArrows
