Living Arrows 33/52 {2017}

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

by Kahlil Gibran


My little Alice is 5 years old and it’s still sinking in! 5 feels like a real milestone in her little life. We had all our family around for a barbecue, which Alice really wanted. Thank goodness the sun shone all day.

Of course there is nothing better than a giant balloon to let everyone know how old you are!


My girls adore their cousin and the three of them had so much fun at the barbecue. I love watching them all together and I adore this photo of the three of them.

    It’s so nice when they get on so well with the cousins isn’t it?
    I will be buying a big blue five in a few days.
