#LivingArrows – The Daily Grind & Bath Time Bedlam

The Daily Grind

Most days by bath time I am completely exhausted, that includes the days when I am working evening shifts till gone ten o’clock.

Despite having the day off from work Mondays are always fairly full on. After ferrying the kids to and fro from Nursery, School and Karate lessons then ensuring Homework is complete and the house is in one piece I am usually pretty knackered come nine o’clock.

Today has been exceptionally busy with the usual Monday madness along with the added extras of a meeting at my son’s school, a Doctors appointment, waiting at the pharmacy and then a parents evening.…

Knitting, Crotchet & Crafty Ideas

I like to have a dabble at anything and everything when it comes to being creative but knitting and crotchet are two crafts which I simply cannot seem to fathom.

As a child I watched my Mum tick-tacking away with her knitting needles, she could throw a jumper together in the matter of a couple of days and despite being taught how to knit and pearl the best I ever made other than a pair of black baby booties which my Mum was mortified at was a dish cloth.

I have a bag of hand-me-down knitting needles and some balls of wool in the cupboard but they are very unlikely to be used by myself.…

#MySundayPhoto – It’s Grease Lightning!

Our son J was invited to a ‘Grease’ themed party this week, he is yet to watch the movie but with teen pregnancies, smoking, ear-piercing and such like Paul and I have avoided letting him watch it just yet.

After browsing the outfits available, J decided to be a ‘T Bird’ requiring a leather jacket, white t-shirt and stone wash jeans. With a little ‘grease’ in his hair as an added extra J really looked the part. From what I gather he had a great time as did all the children who were there.

Here is a snap of the kids taken by Paul on my new Canon camera prior to the party.…

Posh Canvas Personal Canvas Print Review 

I was recently asked to review a ‘Posh Canvas‘. Posh Canvas offers bespoke canvases ideal for the home. All of their canvases are professionally designed resulting in a unique keepsake to be treasured.

All About ‘Posh Canvas’

Posh Canvas enable customers to personalise prints, adding personal details and photographs to selected prints. Customers can also contact ‘Posh Canvas’ directly to discuss specific design ideas which can then be brought to life.

Posh Canvas offer a range of canvases for special occasions and themes. With so much to choose from I found it very difficult to select a canvas for review. After careful consideration I decided to go for a personal family photo given that we had a photo shoot back in June which has since been sat in digital format awaiting being printed.…
