#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.…

#MySundayPhoto – Double Trouble

Welcome to another #MySundayPhoto, this week I thought I’d share a rather stunning shot of ‘double trouble’ as I like to call them AKA my kids.

These two little people are my entire World. They are both funny, clever, cute, imaginative and together they are TROUBLE!

We invited the in-laws around this evening for dinner, between J & E we couldn’t conduct a conversation over the screaming and shouting taking place in what was originally my living room but within the short space of twenty minutes transformed into a bomb site.

I do love them both dearly but my ear drums aren’t getting any younger and whilst I have been subjected to ‘loud’ sounds in my time, put the kids together and the noise levels hit decibels never yet seen before…

You know the old saying “can’t live with them, can’t live without them”?…

#LittleLoves – Everything Seems To Be Changing

It’s been a funny old week really, everything around me seems to be changing and nothing feels ‘normal’ as such. Give it time and I am sure that I will adjust, until then I will ride the waves as best as I can.

There’s so much in life to love and to be thankful for, recent events have certainly taught me that. With that in mind here are my #LittleLoves for this week.


With J having returned to school this week, the reading books have made a come back. J and I have been reacquainted with the good old ‘Biff, Chip and Kipper‘ and I have been reminded just how much I love listening to my little man read.…

Getting Into A Decent Routine

Things seem to be looking up, I feel a whole lot better generally and I think it’s all down to getting into a decent routine.

I have to admit that I was dreading E starting nursery as I worried that I would feel lonely each morning without her company, in reality the past three days have been great! I’ve managed to get a crap load of jobs done each morning that I would never have managed to get done whilst looking after a threenager.

It’s reassuring to know that E is being kept busy and no doubt having uggins of fun whilst I get all the usual household chores done and dusted.  …
