This week’s Living Arrows shot was taken on our recent park visit. N was on the smaller climbing frame and was discussing how they’d made the slide tunnel and put it in the wrong place. You wouldn’t believe that he’d been moaning about having his photo taken before this one!
This week’s My Sunday Photo is the first day this year we’ve properly spent out in the garden. It’s still too water logged on the grass really, but we got the kite out for some kite flying. Of course, as soon as we got it unfurled, the wind died down and N got bored trying. So while he went off and cut the grass (with scissors), I enjoyed some relaxation and kite flying. Taking me back to my childhood.
I’ve shared previously what I love about autumn and winter, but spring seems to make everything hopeful. Instagram goes mad for it, people shake off their coats (we hope) and get thinking about summer. So here’s my take on the joys of spring, through the season: My signs of spring Lighter evenings Spotting the first newborn lambs in the field Blossom on the trees Leaves emerging to take away the bareness The first cut of the grass Gorgeous sunsets Daffodils… Continue Reading “Signs of spring – my joys of spring”
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”
We’re into week 11 of Project 365, and it’s gone from lovely warm weather to freezing. A mixed March. Here’s our week. On Sunday it was raining in the morning. N asked to go to soft play. On a Sunday in the rain. Thankfully we got there early when it opened and he enjoyed an hour of play before he was bored and wanted to go home. An expensive hour, but he enjoyed it and doesn’t go very often, so… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 11”
We’re on to week 10 of Project 365, a photo a day for a year, and this week I’ve been surprised at how many photos I’ve chosen of N. And how many fewer other photos I’ve taken. What I find is that I take loads on one day, and then very few on other days. On Sunday, N dragged his sleeping bag downstairs to build a den. I love this photo – I think he was trying to avoid having… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 10”
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’.
