#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.

#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!…

#LivingArrows – Sunshine, Swings & Dinosaurs

Welcome to this weeks edition of #LivingArrows, I haven’t taken a whole heap of photos this week, with the kids getting back into the school routine it feels as if time has been halved. I guess it has really, the kids are out for at least half of the day and so photo opportunities aren’t as easy these days.

I will however share a couple of random shots from the week which I found lurking on the hubby’s phone, it’s amazing whats on there let me tell you!

Swinging In The Sunshine

The summer is fading fast, the sunshine is apparently making a come back this week but so far I see no sign of its desires to return.…

#LivingArrows – Back To School Special 

Welcome to this weeks #LivingArrows back to school special edition.

I have to admit that whilst I was dreading E starting nursery and leaving me on my lonesome, today actually went pretty well all things considering.

At first I just wandered around the house wondering how E was settling in and whether J was enjoying his first day in the juniors.

After I gave my head a wobble, I made a start on the chores and let me tell you that it’s blumming amazing how much you can get done without a little helper in tow.

I managed to clean the house top to bottom, hoover, list thirty items on eBay, sort out all my photos and start uploading them for printing, wrap up birthday parcels, nip to town to pick up some shopping, get three loads of washing done, order the kids some new clothes and fit in a coffee or two along the way.…

#LivingArrows – A Day Out At Greenlands Farm Village

Welcome to this weeks edition of #Living Arrows which I will be sharing some snaps of the kids taken whilst out on a trip to ‘Greenlands Farm Village‘.

We were lucky once again as the sun was beaming, the kids seemed supercharged and the drive wasn’t too horrendous considering that it was Bank Holiday Monday in The Lake District.

The kids were totally in their element running freely playing in hay lofts, riding mini tractors and driving go karts all whilst being surrounded by random animals merrily grazing.
