#LivingArrows – Snow Angels 5/52 (2019)

Having woken to a dusting of snow, the children couldn’t wait to get wrapped up warm and to head out to play in the white stuff. J was first out, pelting with me with snowballs from left, right and centre as I desperately tried to de-ice the car. He was super excited by the arrival of the snow, though disappointed that he was unable to head out sledging as school beckoned.

Thumbs Up For Snow

E meanwhile busied herself with making snow angels, whilst laying upon her freshly washed, pale pink jacket. I must remember to buy her darker coloured clothing once she has outgrown her current clobber. …

#LivingArrows – Swinging Into Spring 4/52 (2019)

I’m sick to the back teeth of being cooped up indoors, yet I cannot seem to cope with the cold. Thankfully the sun was shining this afternoon and whilst it was, we made the most of it, by getting out into the garden for some fun on the swings.

Swinging Into Spring

It was so lovely to watch the kids run about, screeching and screaming as they hopped from the swings to the slide, huge smiles plastered across their faces. It’s amazing how much difference just getting outside and escaping from the ‘four wall fortress’ can make to your day, your mind suddenly feels a little lighter and the weight from your shoulders seems to lift for a moment.…

#LivingArrows – Make It Count 3/52 (2019)

Looking at all my friends photos online, I feel kind of bad that most of my shots tend to get snapped indoors at present. Don’t get me wrong, my kids and I are outside regularly whilst at play. However, it has been so cold recently that we’ve not been outside for too long before heading back indoors to thaw out. Apologies therefore if my pictures come across as bland and boring.

As part of E’s extra curricular activities, we have spent time playing a few maths games together – one of which she was extremely excited about playing and has requested endless times since.…

#LivingArrows – Perfect In Pyjamas 2/52 (2018)

Having spent most of the holidays parading in our pyjamas, the kids seem to have stuck to the habit and who can blame them? I find so much comfort just from putting on a pair of slippers, it’s the first thing I do upon arriving home. I can therefore understand my little ones love for lounge wear. I’d happily wear my pyjamas and dressing gown all day long if I could, as for fluffy bed socks – I can’t get enough of them!

With it being winter and slightly on the chilly side, E decided to wear her ‘Ninny (her word for bunny) onesie’ over her leotard, whilst on the way to her dance class this evening.…

#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!…
