#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.

#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.…

#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.…
