Living Arrows 49/52

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

by Kahlil Gibran

This week has been very busy preparing us to move house, actually moving house and then the fun job of unpacking us. There hasn’t been too many photo opportunities.

My photo of Holly this week was taken yesterday when we were unpacking boxes. When its the girls birthday’s I put some toys away normally because they are too young for them. When we were unpacking I found a lovely Melissa and Doug wooden teddy bear dressing game, which Holly was given.

She sat and played with it for ages. Don’t you just love it when they are completely absorbed in something. Especially when we had lots to do.


It was my mum’s birthday on Saturday and long before we knew we would be moving house we had booked to go to the Panto. It was Alice’s first time and I just love this look of amazement that I managed to capture.

    Oh you’ve moved! How lovely. I do hope the whole thing went smoothly. These photos are fabulous, it’s great when they just sit and get on with something when you’re busy isn’t it. I’m glad you had fun at the panto too. We’ve been going every year since we had Libby, she was just 6 months old the first time she went and Lia went at the same age. They both look forward to it each year now. Thanks for the reminder to book some tickets!

    Love that look on Alice’s face, she looks mesmerised! And those wooden toys are fab, we have a Mr Tumble one like it that will keep Nerys entertained for quite a while. Hope you’re all settled in to the new house. x #LivingArrows

    That teddy puzzle looks lovely. I really like Melissa and Doug stuff.

    Lovely picture captured of Alice too. N’s going to the panto next week for the first time. Hopefully he can cope with sitting still through it!
