“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran.

Every Monday for the rest of this year I will share with you two photo’s of my children that celebrate their childhood.


We had a couple of windy walks to school last week. Daisy had to multi-task, munching on an apple and keeping her hood up at the same time was no easy feat. She had another great week in school, science is fast becoming a favourite subject which makes me very happy indeed.

On Saturday Daisy went to Gulliver’s World with a friend, she had an amazing time and came home still buzzing with excitement. One of the roller coasters broke down and left people stuck in the air, I’m just thankful she wasn’t on that ! Her favourite ride was the log flume which doesn’t surprise me as she loves getting wet.


Our strawberry plant has done fantastic this year, we can’t get to them fast enough meaning that the garden creatures are having a feast. Jake was most amused to find lots of strawberries that had already been chomped on. He thinks the very hungry caterpillar had been to visit !

Jake has had a fantastic week at school, he comes home so chatty, telling us all about the fun things he has done in class. He’s also trying some new foods at lunch time much to our relief, our little vegetable dodger has been eating some carrots and peas. It’s amazing to think just a few months ago he was in tears when I left him at nursery, he’s grown up so much over the summer.

    The weather has been pretty awful the last week hasn’t it? I have to confess I’ve been lazy and we’ve been going to school in the car. Glad to hear Jake is settling in well to school – it must be such a relief. #LivingArrows
