Living Arrows 12/52 (2021)

Hello! I’m here again after another week, and without a lot to say. The boys had another good week at school last week, although Gabe has brought a cold home and kindly shared it with the rest of us! The weather was a bit better than the week before too so we could walk the school runs which is always nice.

We managed to get in the garden for a bit at the weekend too. If you were following me last summer then you might know we had a lot of work done on our back garden (you can see it all here) but by the time it was finished the summer was almost over and it wasn’t really the time to plant very much.

Now we’re getting in to spring we really want to get some plants in and make it a lovely place to spend time this year. It’s much easier to work in the garden now the boys are older – they’re usually happy to play while we get on with digging and planting. Although to be fair to Barry he’s been doing all the digging and I’ve just been aggressively pruning all our very overgrown shrubs in the older part of the garden!

I don’t really know what either of the boys are doing in this week’s pictures… they had been running around on the grass and had to have silly poses for their photos.

These were taken before Gabe came down with the cold and then gave it to everyone else – we’ve now all got very snotty noses and sore throats but I’m hoping we can shake it quickly and be better for the start of the Easter holidays next week.

The boys break up at 2 pm on Friday – we were supposed to be going on holiday to Yorkshire next week, rescheduled from last Easter but obviously that isn’t happening. We’ve moved it again to next Easter now – we’ll get there eventually! We don’t have any other plans, Barry is working apart from Easter weekend so it’ll just be more of the same for us I guess – plenty of relaxing at home and in the garden, there’s not much else to do is there?!

This is my eighth year taking part in this linky celebrating childhood, based on a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” .

  1. we have been trying to get our garden straight too. I am also the very unhappy recipient of a cold shared from school too. Hope you are all over yours and have a lovely Easter break x
