This week’s living arrows shot was taken in the garden playing on the climbing frame. N is still refusing to try using the monkey bars (despite him being able to do it last year). And he insisted on keeping his overalls on.
This week’s Living Arrows shot was going to be a totally different photo. And then I found this (and a series of other similar shots) that I’d taken of N when I got my camera back and was testing it out again). When N gets tired, he brings his sleeping bag and pillows downstairs to snuggle up in and watch tv (currently Horrible Histories is his obsession). He kept hiding from me but eventually agreed to have his photo taken.… Continue Reading “Living Arrows 2017 week 18 – sleeping bag snuggles”
We’ve just come back from a few days away in Norfolk. I was able to relive some of the places my mum took us when we were children holidaying there, but it wasn’t as fulfilled as I’d planned because N wasn’t well. He’s still not right – still saying he’s hot and cold on occasions, and a headache that’s coming and going. So I’m a little concerned after a few days of this. Hopefully he’ll have had enough rest over… Continue Reading “Living Arrows 2017 week 17 – natural playground”
I’d been meaning to return to Upton House (National Trust) for a while now, and had been hoping to see the new 1920s displays and the refilled mirror lake. But we went today for the Easter Egg hunt and the mirror lake was still empty and complete with JCB digger in it N had a great time with his cousin, they spent a lot of time rolling down slopes, running around and just generally having a bit of rough and… Continue Reading “Living Arrows 2017 week 16 – outdoor fun”
This week’s Living Arrows shot was taken on Thursday afternoon with N getting ready to play badminton. N had had a bump on the head at school first thing that morning, and he was so shaky I’d had to pick him up to keep an eye on him. Oh course by afternoon, he was fine again (albeit with a huge egg on the back of his head) and wanting to play outside. He got lots of outdoor toys out, played… Continue Reading “Living Arrows 2017 week 15 – getting ready to play”
We used to go to the library regularly, but haven’t been since last summer. With N getting reading books from school and refusing to read his books at home himself, a library visit seems a lot of effort if I need to have him with me. But this weekend N had requested to visit the library and get some books out. We dug out his library card, paid an extortionate £1.50 for the nearest car park (no free parking in… Continue Reading “Living Arrows 2017 week 12 – library visit”
I love this photo of N, taken on a walk and scoot round the park. We didn’t have much time inbetween swimming and my hair appointment, but it was just enough for a quick scoot and play in the playground. It’s his face, as he’s scooting towards me that makes me smile. Joy and a little bit of ‘no more photos’.
