Living Arrows 2/52 (2019)

Cheeky Gabe chops in the bath

It’s week 2 of Living Arrows for 2019 and we are back to reality with a bump! Toby went back to school on Monday and Gabe was back at nursery too. Actually, despite my fears last week they were both fine! Gabe cried a little bit when I dropped him off on Monday but just ran in the other two days he was there, and Toby was absolutely fine too. Fingers crossed it continues this week! Read more

Toby on the playground at Speke Hall

Here we are again – so this is going to be my sixth year of taking part in the Living Arrows linky! The project originally took it’s name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”  and it has seen a few incarnations in the last five years. For the last few years though it has been hosted by the lovely Donna at What the Redhead Said. Read more

Toby's excited face when he realised Father Christmas was on the train with us

I know everyone seems to be saying it this year, but I can’t believe it’s Christmas Eve already! I don’t know about your children but Toby is bouncing off the walls with excitement now. Gabe’s excited too but I don’t know if it’s just because he’s younger and doesn’t understand quite as much but he seems to be containing it a bit more! Read more

Gabe exploring the Bridestones

So this is the last Living Arrows of November, and there are only 5 more to go before the end of the year! I sound like broken record but I am constantly amazed at how fast this last few months of the year is going. We don’t seem to do much during the week except school, nursery and swimming lessons but we are trying to make the most of our weekends at the moment. Read more

Gabe and his cupcakes

Blimey, week 47 already! It feels like the last third of this year is absolutely flying by. This week has been another normal one for us really. The boys got to wear Pudsey t-shirts for school and nursery this week – they were supposed to wear spots but I always just buy the t-shirts instead. That way I’m donating to a good cause as well as not having to worry about finding them something to wear! Read more
