Living Arrows

Living Arrows is a weekly linky celebrating childhood. The project originally took its name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” and every Monday we share a moment from our week and invite others to do the same as part of this linky. Here are all the posts so far in the series.

Living Arrows – 37/52

This week has been chock full of LP starting preschool, a visit to Little Street with Amy from 2 Boys 1 Mum and a day out at Langley Park. It’s been a lovely week for doing things and seeing people but unfortunately has finished with all four of us being ill with a virus so we have had sleepless nights with two snotty, overtired children. I’m hoping to see the…

Living Arrows – 36/52

This week has been a busy one – I’ve had three days at work and around that and Hubby’s working hours I have been decorating our bedroom. I used to love decorating before having kids but now, trying to juggle work, childcare and painting I find each decorating job a complete nightmare and I will probably pay someone to do our decorating next time! Around the decorating we had a…


Living Arrows – 35/52

This week has been such a great week. Although I worked for three days, as a family we have managed to cram in so much to the rest of the week and Hubby has had a few days off work too. Thursday was LP’s 3rd Birthday and we spent the day at a local country park, followed by an ice cream treat in a local dessert parlour. We also had…


Living Arrows – 34/52

This week has been busy, busy, busy and for once it has come to a close with me feeling as though we have got the work/life balance completely right. This has been a pretty perfect week. The week started off with Hubby having the kids whilst I had a day at work, then we had a day long play date with LP’s best friend and her Mum before driving to…

This week’s Living Arrows photos are courtesy of Hubby’s phone. Hubby and I had our first weekend away without the children and add to that my working week and not doing anything that warranted the ‘big’ camera and it meant I just didn’t take any photos of the children this week. LP has spent the last few weeks being a kissy, cuddly little thing. She loves her blanket and loves…


Living Arrows – 32/52

This week has been a busy one with work, a day at Legoland, LP’s best friend’s Birthday party and a lot of housey stuff going on. Overall though it has been a great week and one that has had more family things compared to work which is definitely a great balance for us. LP and Little Man love to play, especially outside and they both love the slide. Little Man…


Living Arrows – 31/52

I have a series of photos for this week’s Living Arrows and for once each picture has both children in it. One thing that I loved from childhood, and that I seem to have passed onto the children is singing the ‘Ring A Roses’ song but when LP decided the other day that she would play Ring A Roses with Little Man after dinner I was glad my camera was…
