#Living Arrows – ‘Hopping Mad ’24/52 (2017)

Welcome to this weeks edition of #LivingArrows, a weekly post in which I share a snap or two of my little ones.

As you may have seen last week I shared a few pictures of my happy hopper J bouncing around the garden. Following countless arguments and ‘waiting for turns’ I finally caved and bought yet another hopper enabling the children to bounce alongside each other or in other words race.

This isn’t a particularly fantastic shot due to the terrible lighting and lack of eye contact from the kids, never the less it’s an honest picture of parenting. Two children side by side, one may first think ‘united’ but that will never be the case with siblings as it will always end up as a competition, whether that be a race, a tug of war, a battle of wills or a full on argument.…

#LivingArrows – Happy Hopping & Loopy For Lego 23/52 (2017)

Welcome to this weeks #LivingArrows post, a weekly post in which I share a couple of snaps taken of my wonderful children (I swear there’s not a hint of sarcasm there at all!)

Half term is officially over, the kids have returned to routine and I’ve found myself able to finally focus and get a few things done around the house. No longer am I swamped by piles of post awaiting reading or filing, the house is mostly clean and I have even been able to catch up with a few soaps whilst getting some work done.

I am yet to address the ever-growing email inbox, transfer and file my photos, that and assist J with both his thank you letters and outstanding homework over the next week or so. …

#LivingArrows – Sunshine Days & Young Love 22/52 (2017)

Welcome to this weeks edition of #LivingArrows, a weekly post in which I share a few photos of my beautiful children.

Despite the never-ending sibling rivalry I am so lucky to have ‘one of each’. Theres J, our beautiful boy whose stereotypically potty about pirates and loopy over Lego. Then theres E, our little Princess who just like her Mummy is a total fantasist, loves all things pink and is a complete and utter Disney Diva.


Young Love

J turned eight-years old last week and as part of the celebrations we invited our friends Ali & Duane over to the house during the evening for some snacks and alcoholic refreshments. …

#Living Arrows – Birthdays & Bikes 21/52 (2017)

Welcome to this weeks edition of #LivingArrows, a weekly post in which I share a couples of snaps of the kids. I love this linky for many reasons but mainly because it literally forces me to shoot pictures which are then recorded in a weekly format which over time has become a fantastic resource to look back upon.

We’ve certainly made some serious memories over the past few months, this weekend was particularly memorable given that J turned eight years old. We celebrated in style with his friends at the local Zero Gravity trampoline park followed by a trip to load up on carbs at Maccy D’s.…

#LivingArrows ‘Kisses & Kicking It’ 20/52 (2017)

Welcome to this weeks edition of #LivingArrows, a weekly post in which I share an image of each of my little ones. The past seven days have once again flown by and all in honesty I have barely blogged as I’ve had very little to say but I promise I will rectify this shortly especially with Blog On being just around the corner!


Kicking It

Whilst I was busy pulling pints behind the bar on Sunday my son was down at the dojo showing them ‘how it’s done’ aka being graded for his orange karate/ kickboxing belt’. Both Paul and I were worried about how he might get on given that he’s found certain moves challenging to memorise but as always ‘J brought it’ on the day and stunned not only his Daddy and I but also his instructor and peers alike.…
