#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!…

#LivingArrows – Super Snuggles 41/52 (2017)

Is it really only Monday?! I’m not sure whether I’d like to restart the week or just cancel the whole thing to be honest. I’ve had a seriously crappy start to what is meant to be a fabulous family based week.

Mr Tax Man (or his cousin Mr Credits to be more precise) got in touch earlier today to let me know that he is obviously unable to use his calculator as there’s been a monumental cock-up with our tax credits payments. Being the honest type I’ve never fancied benefit fraud and for that reason have always been very sure to keep the tax man up to date with accurate records of our finances.…

#LivingArrows – Road Closure

Some time on Thursday night a lorry decided to ram into the bridge that connects us to the next village, the road has since been shut and we are having to use the back roads to take the children back and forth to School and Nursery.

This wouldn’t normally be a problem as it usually takes the same amount of time to commute using either road. However, now that the main road is shut every man and their dog are using the back roads.

The back roads are narrow and aren’t really suitable to carry such a large amount of traffic. …

Living Arrows – Smiles From Within

Welcome to another week of ‘Living Arrows‘. Each week I share two photographs of my children to celebrate their progress in the walk of life. Here are this weeks contributions:

Here is my super seven-year old with his favourite Birthday gift. In this photo he is of course playing Minecraft, his favourite game that he was also given for his birthday. J will soon be joining the local Minecraft club and attending meetings each Friday to do whatever it is you do on the game that I can only liken to catnip for kids. I am pretty sure that he will enjoy the new club as from what I’ve heard it’s right up his street.…
