This week’s Living Arrows photo was taken on our trip to Oxford. We went for a children’s concert, grabbed some lunch afterwards, and then sat waiting for the park and ride bus. It was a long wait, but N was happy to sit on one of the ‘benches’ by one of the university colleges while we waited at the bus stop.
I took a few photos of him sitting there, and while none of them had the perfect happy facial expression, I like this the best. It shows him deep in thought, probably wondering what was going on over the other side of the road or watching people getting onto a bus.
N’s also looking so much older now. He’s grown 6cm over the summer and although he seems a lot older, sitting with his hands under his knees still makes him look young and a bit more vulnerable, wanting comfort.
As for the shopping bag. We visited a fabulous sweet shop called Hardy’s and I let him buy some chocolate coins. He insisted on carrying the bag all the way home.
