#LivingArrows – Happy Halloween Spooky Spectacular

Happy Halloween and welcome to this weeks spooky spectacular #LivingArrows post. Halloween has finally arrived and the kids have enjoyed every moment.

Halloween finally arrived after weeks of random parties, discos and dress up days. The kids have both had a fantastic amount of use from each of their costumes this year, the outfits were both certainly money well spent!

Despite not feeling 100% I managed to walk around for an hour or so with the kids as they collected bucket loads of sweets and treats. The weather was fairly warm considering we are into November tomorrow, a perfect evening to stroll around with skeletons and such like.…

#Living Arrows Live From London

Welcome to this weeks ‘Live From London’ edition of  #LivingArrows. We have had a fairly exhausting weekend rushing around trying to see and do as many things as possible. Here are a few snaps from today.

The Boys On The Bridge Monumental Moments

It’s our last evening ‘down South’ before we embark on yet another long drive. I’m looking forward to my own bed and a decent brew tomorrow evening.

It’s been a total blast, lots of memories have been made and we would do it all over again in a heartbeat once we have had chance to get some much-needed rest after battling the hustle and bustle.…

#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.

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.…
