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

by Kahlil Gibran


Our World Book Day was postponed to last Friday because of the snow the week before. Alice was excited and I was relived. She cried when she found out school was cancelled and she couldn’t go dressed in her outfit.

Alice has known for months and months that she wanted to go dressed as Mildred Hubble from the Worst Witch. I initially thought brilliant, she can wear her witch’s outfit from Halloween. But I was wrong. Mildred wears a shirt and tie!!!!

It was worth to see this smile…


We headed to Chessington World Of Adventures and I love this photo of Holly. She is sat watching the sea lions and she has no idea I’m taking a photo. It’s not very often this little lady sits still, but she was mesmerised.

    What a fab outfit, I’m glad she got to wear it eventually. I loved the Worst Witch when I was younger, I’m glad it’s still something kids read! #livingarrows

    Oh Alice made an absolutely brilliant Mildred! And that photo of Holly is lovely, I love natural shots like that when they don’t know they’re being taken! x #LivingArrows

    Oh we love CWOA – lovely to be able to go in the winter and see all the animals when it’s a little quieter. And Alice looks great as Mildred! x

    Love the witch outfit, she looks so happy. I hope she had a good day. Hoping to try and get to CWOA to go on the Gruffalo ride soon x

    Alice looks fab! I loved The Worst Witch books when I was young too. And you can tell Holly is really focused on something there too 🙂 #LivingArrows
