Living Arrows – 7/52 {2017}

Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows. I am loving how many people have decided to make Living Arrows a part of their blogging routine for 2017, it is so lovely to have you all here. It’s definitely one of my favourite parts of each week!

If you haven’t joined in with Living Arrows before it’s is about celebrating childhood. 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 every Monday we share a moment from our week and invite others to do the same as part of this linky.

Each week I share two pictures from our week – one of each of our children – but you can share one or more pictures that capture a moment of childhood. The following week I’ll share my three favourite photos from the week before, linking back to the owner’s blogs.

So if you would like to link up, grab a badge and post around a photo of childhood from the previous week. I look forward to reading your posts and make sure you visit a few of the other posts that have linked up and leave a comment too!

Here are a few of my favourite photos from last week:

Life at Cooks Cabin

Pondering Parenthood

Baby Holiday

This week’s photos sum up a week of illness – hence them being quick, grainy phone snaps and not taken with my proper camera. We’ve all had some kind of norovirus, although Hubby has got away without catching it miraculously. We have been tag teaming the sickness this week, spending so much time sleeping and thankfully LP was well enough to go back to school for the last couple of days of the half term.

Little Man, on the other hand, has been exhausted and poorly for longer and although the children were well enough to go to their grandparents for a sleepover at the weekend Hubby and I had to cancel our plans as I just wasn’t well enough to go. But, we’re off on a mini-break today and we’re all feeling much better – fingers crossed it’s our last bout of illness for a while!

I’m really looking forward to reading your posts this week. If I thought a lot of people joined in for the first week then I was amazed at the amount that joined last week! I’m going to keep commenting on all of the posts that link up and sharing my favourite photos each week. Thanks so much for taking part and for adding to this great little community we’re creating – make sure to go and comment on a few other posts at some point during the week too.

    Oh no! We had a stomach bug a few weeks ago and it took so long to feel 100% back to normal. I’m glad you and your littles are on the mend.

  18. February 14, 2017 / 6:02 pm

    Oh no! So sick of these nasty viruses. Hope they both feel better soon x

  22. February 14, 2017 / 11:21 pm

    Oh no, there are so many of these horrible viruses doing the rounds just now. Once one of you catch it you can pretty much guarantee to write off at least a week. Such a shame you had to cancel plans, but hopefully everyone is back to normal soon and you make the most of the next weekend 🙂 x

  23. February 15, 2017 / 3:27 pm

    Oh no – not you too! There is just so much of it around at the moment, I hope you’re well and truly on the mend. I wouldn’t usually mind the winter – but roll on spring and healthy families!

    Thanks for hosting x

  24. February 15, 2017 / 9:05 pm

    Oh no! I hope your two are better very soon, its the worst thing seeing your little ones unwell xx

  25. February 16, 2017 / 8:17 am

    What a horrible week for u guys we had the norovirus beforeand it totally zapped us.

  26. February 16, 2017 / 7:59 pm

    The flu hit me a few weeks ago but fortunately no one else in my family got it. I hope you are all on the mend very soon if not already. Take care.

  27. February 18, 2017 / 4:05 pm

    Aww bless them! We’ve had sickness this week 🙁 hope they’re much better now! Sorry for the late comment! #LivingArrows

  28. February 19, 2017 / 4:41 pm

    I genuinely wish your little’s a speedy recovery from the illnesses going around this time of year. It really does suck when they are unwell x #livingarrows

  29. February 19, 2017 / 5:50 pm

    I hope you’re all feeling better soon. I don’t know what it is but this seems to be the time of year when everyone is fighting some sort of bug or cold. As you know, Amy’s still not back to normal x

  30. February 19, 2017 / 10:13 pm

    I feel your pain on the illness – lets hope it leaves you alone now lovely. On another note, we have the same star blanket – and the kids still love cuddling up with it xxx

  31. February 19, 2017 / 10:24 pm

    Oh bless them! I hope you’re all feeling better now – there’s nothing worse than sickness bugs.

  32. February 19, 2017 / 10:57 pm

    Ah Donna! I know so many people that have been struck down with the dreaded norovirus. My sympathy is all yours. I have heard it go on for days, and days and days. I hope you and your hubs get to go out together soon. It’s great that so many people are joining in – wahooooo!!!!! x

  33. February 20, 2017 / 11:35 am

    Such a shame about tag-teaming the sickness 🙁
    I hope you enjoyed your mini-break and you remain lurgy free for a while!
    Sorry for the late comment! xx
