Living Arrows 40/52 (2016)

We are sometimes a bit rubbish about getting out and actually doing things at the weekend – there are always jobs to be done, I worry about disrupting Gabe’s nap routine, and sometimes we are just a bit rubbish and it’s the middle of the afternoon before we know it and we haven’t done anything.

Yesterday though, the sun was shining so we made an effort to get out. We went to Beacon Fell, which is a smallish hill about half an hour from where we live. You can park quite near the top so it’s not too much of a walk for little three year old legs.

Barry took loads of photos so I might do a full post about it another time but for now I just want to share these two for this week’s Living Arrows post.


It was a lovely sunny day but not that warm in the shade and I knew from experience it could be windy on the top. I’m glad Toby’s rainbow snuggle fleece still fits him though – it looks like it might see us through another winter!

For the second week in a row I am also in Gabe’s picture. I’ve only carried him on my back a few times in our Lillebaby but he seemed very happy yesterday. It’s really comfortable to carry him this way too. We did need a bit of a rest when we got to the top though…

  1. Our 2 y/o goes really crazy if we don’t go out so the upside is it helps us to put down our chores and leave the house – her big sister wasn’t like this and we could spend all weekend at home! Lovely photo, I love the light and the angle.

  2. I want Toby’s rainbow fleece – how awesome is that! I LOVE the pic of you and Gabe, that’s just gorgeous – definitely one for a frame 🙂 x #livingarrows

  3. Aw look at Gabe – such a little schmoo! Lovely to see you in the picture too! I know, it’s so hard to get out sometimes isn’t it, glad we are not the only ones. Sometimes it’s nice to keep things simple, but it’s also nice to get out now and again for a trip somewhere. Sound like this was a lovely day. x
