#LivingArrows – Santa Seeking 50/53 (2018)

Following an extremely busy day, the kids and I ventured out on what became a ‘Santa hunt’. Whilst Santa would usually make a visit to our house, this year we were a little preoccupied with dance rehearsals, hair appointments, shopping sprees and all kinds of crazy capers. After finally finishing for the day, we then hopped into the Mini and had our very own adventure hunting for Santa. There was absoloutly no way on this Earth that I letting my little ones miss out on a visit from the big man.

After following Santa’s usual route we eventually came across his sleigh, it was pretty hard to miss given that it gave Blackpool illuminations a run for it’s money, that and the Christmas music (which was blaring incredibly loudly from his sleigh) was a bit of a give away.…

#LivingArrows – The Dynamic Duo Dress The Tree 49/53 (2018)

As you may have noticed, I’m a tad late in writing this weeks #LivingArrows post. I have been that ill I was simply unable to do anything other than collapse on the couch and rest my way to recovery.

Thankfully I’m feeling a little better today, I’m not entirely 100% but I’m doing my very best to stay on two feet and to work my way through the week. The kids have been a god send, they’ve seen how poorly I’ve been over the weekend and they have both been so understanding, caring and considerate.

I really do have the perfect pair of children, this was more than apparent as they very kindly dressed and decorated our Christmas tree without a single whinge, whine or wail.…

#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.…

#LivingArrows – Centre Stage 47/53 (2018)

My kids are another kind of awesome, I am so incredibly proud of the pair of them. They seem to be taking centre stage at present and the spotlight has been shining upon them both for many reasons.

Over the past month both J & E have brought home the ‘Lighthouse Award’ (each week a child from each class is chosen to receive this award), J for his efforts during multi-faith week and E for her sheer grit and determination. I was hugely honoured to watch both J & E being called forward to receive their awards, the look on their little faces was a delight to behold.…

#LivingArrows – Making Memories With My Minis 46/53 (2018)

As you will no doubt have read on my blog or seen on my Instagram (should you happen to read or follow me) then you’ll be well aware that we collected our new car from the dealership over the weekend. Whilst a Mini may just be a car to most people, it means the world to me.

I have such fond memories of bouncing around in the back of my Nanas Mini whilst on my way to and from the caravan site on the coast road. We’d spend time taking walks to the beach via the many farms which were littered with piglets, horses and all kinds of wonderful animals.…
