#LivingArrows – I Want My MTV 5/52 (2017)

Welcome to this weeks disco dancing edition of #LivingArrows brought to you directly ‘from the club’.

Having returned home from an energetic kick-boxing session, J found his little sister dressed once again as ‘Anna’ from Frozen desperate for some fun and why not? That’s what big brothers are for!

Following a quick flick through the Music channels, the children decided to boogie on down to disco town.

We spent almost twenty minutes in total flicking back and forth between the music channels trying to find those which were actually playing Music and weren’t showing adverts which was almost every sodding channel . …

#LivingArrows – Siblings That Share 4/52 (2017)

Welcome to this weeks edition of #LivingArrows where I share the proof that shock horror- my children are actually able to share!

Until now asking my children to share anything has often resulted in a full blown tantrum including screaming, crying, stomping and the odd door being slammed. Thankfully as the kids have grown older they have learnt that spitting the dummy isn’t particularly effective in promoting friendship or play.

E was rather lucky to receive a Furby Connect from Santa for Christmas. This rather bright pink, fluffy, noisy little Monster has since become a firm favourite with both of the kids and is so well used that the damn thing requires new batteries almost every twenty-four hours.…

#LivingArrows – Sky High 3/52 (2017)

Welcome to this weeks #LivingArrows, a weekly post in which I share a photo of each of my little ones. It’s been a busy week with one thing and another when isn’t it a busy week? I haven’t had an awful lot of time to take photos, I did however manage to find these two shots to share with you.

Whilst checking J’s school Tumblr pictures I found this beauty. It seems that the kids have created a large canvas on which to pose for some ‘aerial’ shots. I love this picture, it reminds me of a similar image from Winnie The Pooh.…

#LivingArrows – A Snapchat Special 2/52 (2017)

Welcome to my second #LivingArrows post of 2017, a Snapchat Special filled with fun and filters.

As you will probably be aware I like to use social media, I am on almost every platform you can imagine and to add to this have recently joined the strange World of Snapchat.

I am not entirely sure what I am doing with Snapchat just yet but give me time and as with most things, I will figure it out. I have however managed to find the hilarious photo filters and made some use of them.

If you fancy adding me on Snapchat then my username is RachelSwirl, I will be keeping a ‘story’ and all that malarkey given time.…

#LivingArrows – A Winter Walk 1/52 (2017)

Welcome to the first #LivingArrows post for 2017. We blew away the cobwebs today by having a good old winter walk along the beach. I totally forgot to take my beautiful Canon camera along with us but managed with my trusty IPhone.

E insisted that she wore her fluffy new ear muffs which her Auntie Sue and Uncle Tony very kindly gave to her for Christmas. J was also wrapped up all snug and warm in his ski hat which believe it or not was once worn by myself as a child on the slopes.

 

It may have been bitterly cold but the kids didn’t seem to mind jumping in the water and running amuck on the shore.…
