Living Arrows 2017 week 18 – sleeping bag snuggles

Living Arrows 2017 week 18 snuggling up

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”

Living Arrows 2017 week 17 – natural playground

Living Arrows 2017 week 17 - happy in a natural playground

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”

Living Arrows 2017 week 16 – outdoor fun

Living Arrows 2017 week 16 fun at Upton house

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”

Living Arrows 2017 week 15 – getting ready to play

getting into badminton in the garden

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”

Living Arrows 2017 week 12 – library visit

Living Arrows 2017 week 12 - library choices

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”
