Living Arrows A road out of lockdown & more birthdays…

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

Hello again and welcome back to another week in our lives… last week was a tough one – neither of the girls would let me put them down, it was like a tag team for my attention (my back has certainly had to pay for it) but this week they’ve given me a little more time and I’ve been able to get to blogging, dedicating some solid time to it! I even managed to complete two posts that I’ve had in my drafts for aaaaaages here and here, and even a shorter third one here! Woohoo! Now I’m hoping that my luck lasts and I can finish a few more before they’re ‘out of date’!

Ironically, given the time constraints lifting in our house, whilst I included HEAPS of photos last week, I’ve selected just 4 for the post this week…

It was Grandad’s birthday on Thursday and these two thoroughly enjoyed one of his cakes!

Not sure this is what I had in mind for those first days of weening!

This week we were supposed to be taking Little M to see the ballet – we knew that Baby F would be 6 months and could be left with her grandparents so we wanted to do something special for Little M. It had already been cancelled once back in October and is now postponed again. On the plus side Daddy still has his time off from work so I’m hoping the weather will stay dry and sunny this week so we can enjoy some adventures outside together. 

Thank you for reading! I look forward to catching with your #LivingArrows either through your own posts or comments upon this post.

Until next week,

Living Arrows is a weekly linky, hosted by the fabulous Donna from What The Redhead Said, 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”. Every Monday we will share a photo/photos from the previous week that capture a moment of childhood.   If you’ve enjoyed reading this post, we’d love for you to follow our adventures on our social media channels or become part of our family at

There wasn’t much icing left that’s for sure! Given that after Lockdown 1.0 my eldest freaked out whenever we sang Happy Birthday to anyone (she went from sociable little butterfly to covering her eyes around anyone and everyone and hating any attention near her) I’ll take it as a win that she’s back to getting involved again! x

Oh weaning! Such an adventure! That cake looks wonderful, I hope you all enjoyed it and that Grandad had a lovely birthday x
