Living Arrows – swing in sunset

Living Arrows 2017 week 29 - swing in sunset

This week’s Living Arrows shot was one taken in the week of N on the swing. He’s had the theory for years about making a swing go – legs forward and back, and then knowing he needed to lean. But until this week, he’s just not grasped putting the lean with the legs. But he’s cracked it and I hadn’t even realised until I spotted him in the garden going higher and hugher. Our climbing frame isn’t secured into the… Continue Reading “Living Arrows – swing in sunset”

Project 365 2017 week 27 and 28

It’s a fortnight of Project 365 for me this week. Going to Cornbury Festival last week didn’t leave me time to do it, and then I just didn’t get round to it over this week.  So here’s our week 27 and 28. Week 27 As well as the intended new puppy, I discovered on Sunday, we also have 3 new farm kittens. Yes, yet more. This is the fluffiest of the bunch. The other 2 didn’t want to be photographed.… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 27 and 28”

Living Arrows 2017 week 27 – garden relaxation

Living Arrows 2017 week 28 chilling in the garden

Ok, so the hot weather at the moment doesn’t suit me, but it’s still nice to get outdoors for a bit of garden relaxation after school.  We even tried doing N’s reading outside, although it’s not easy for 2 people to get comfortable and still be able to read the book together. N spent most of the time hiding from the camera, but I did manage to get this one which I love. It might be summer, but yes, N… Continue Reading “Living Arrows 2017 week 27 – garden relaxation”

Living Arrows 2017 week 27 – 70s wig

Living Arrows 2017 week 27 black wig

I was struggling for photos this week of N. He’s avoided the camera well all week, but I remembered to check my camera and on it found this 1 photo from last week. Last Saturday we went to a 70s themed 40th birthday party.  N thought his dad looked really strange (so did I!) in his purple flower power dodgy ‘velour’ flares and top.  Add to that this 70s wig and it was a hideous outfit. N was quite taken… Continue Reading “Living Arrows 2017 week 27 – 70s wig”

Project 365 2017 week 26 – festivals and fairy lights

We’re halfway through the year, and marching on towards the summer holidays.  It’s been a pretty quiet this week, but I’m expecting things to get a bit more manic over the next few weeks. We’ve had quiet weekends and not much dancing on, so even at weekends it’s been calm and stress free.  I’m getting itchy feet and wanting to get out but N’s moaning he doesn’t want to go out as usual. Here’s this week’s photos for Project 365.… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 26 – festivals and fairy lights”

Living Arrows – end of year 1 approaching

Living Arrows week 26 - outdoor play

We’ve not done much over the last few weekends – well, apart from Feast at Waddesdon but I didn’t take many photos because it was just too hot and N wasn’t keen. But there’s been quite a few evenings spent in the garden due to the heat. There’s been lots of bubble fun and paddling pool water silliness. This Living Arrows shot was taken when N was checking out the bubble machine and before he got wet.  He’s nearly 6… Continue Reading “Living Arrows – end of year 1 approaching”

Project 365 2017 week 25 – garden bubbles

water dunking

It’s week 25 of Project 365 and we’re thankfully over the heatwave. Nearly a week’s worth of 30C heat, and I was happiest being in work with the air conditioning.  Here’s this week’s photos. On Sunday it was garden bubbles getting the bubble machine out.  N was intrigued with the mechanism and decided he was going to catch the bubbles. It didn’t work that well but it didn’t put him off. On Monday I arrived home from work, then N… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 25 – garden bubbles”
