#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… View Post

#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.

The kids are already fairly exhausted from spending their time in Nursery and Primary School but getting a few hours of fresh air each… View Post

#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… View Post

#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… View Post
