#LivingArrows – The Daily Grind & Bath Time Bedlam

The Daily Grind

Most days by bath time I am completely exhausted, that includes the days when I am working evening shifts till gone ten o’clock.

Despite having the day off from work Mondays are always fairly full on. After ferrying the kids to and fro from Nursery, School and Karate lessons then ensuring Homework is complete and the house is in one piece I am usually pretty knackered come nine o’clock.

Today has been exceptionally busy with the usual Monday madness along with the added extras of a meeting at my son’s school, a Doctors appointment, waiting at the pharmacy and then a parents evening.…

#LivingArrows – Nanna & Grandad’s House 

Each and every Sunday the kids visit their Nanna & Grandad’s house, it is something they look forward to every week as it seems that their Grandparents is their favourite place to be.

Nanna & Grandad’s house is like a second home to our kids, they are there every other day or so. My Mother-in-law is a Saint you see, she looks after the kids when Paul or I are both at work, she ferries the kids to and from School and Nursery when we are unable to and steps in whenever we have any issues with illness or organisational errors with childcare.…

#LivingArrows – Goldilocks Weather

It’s Monday again and with the start of another week brings another #LivingArrows post. Living Arrows is all about celebrating childhood, the project originally took its name from a poem written by Kahil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”.

Each and every Monday I share a couple of snaps of my ‘little snappers’ to join as part of the #LivingArrows linky along with other bloggers.

The autumn sunshine came out to play this afternoon and so following the school run I made the best of the beautiful weather and took the kids to the park to run some energy off.…

#LivingArrows – Beautiful In Black And White

Welcome to this weeks ‘not very colourful’ edition of #LivingArrows. I am not sure about you but I love old fashioned photos, some pictures are simply beautiful in black and white.

Life is colourful, chaotic and darn right crazy at times. I find that black and white images can simplify the subject matter and often bring more meaning and sentiment to the portrait.

My children are beautiful with or without colour, there is something so timeless about these two images, both of which I plan to print, frame and display in the house at some point soon.

My Perfect Princess

#LivingArrows – September Sunshine

I am loving the September sunshine which we are currently being blessed with. Not only do we need the dry weather for the build to take place more easily but the kids love running around outside in the fresh air.

Getting the kids out of the house whether it be a trip to the park, a walk through the woods or simply playing out in our own garden can make all the difference especially when it comes to bed time.

The kids are already fairly exhausted from spending their time in Nursery and Primary School but getting a few hours of fresh air each day seals the deal when it comes to getting the kids to sleep!…
