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”

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”

Living Arrows 2017 week 25 – bubbles

Living Arrows 2017 week 25- escaping bubbles

This weekend has been sooooo hot.  I’m not good in hot weather, so apart from nipping to the supermarket, we hung around at home. N went out on the farm but after lunch had to have a break while the OH went back out. I suggested we get out the paddling pool as the lodgers were around. They live in our converted garage, and the outside tap is in their garden. So we had to ask to borrow the tap.… Continue Reading “Living Arrows 2017 week 25 – bubbles”

Living Arrows – post tennis play

Living Arrows 2017 week 24 post tennis park break

This week’s living arrows shot was taken after tennis.  They’d had a good session, N had been partnered with a friend from school who also doesn’t spend the lesson mucking around like most of the other boys, so he was happy they were doing the drills properly. But afterwards, I have to get him out without him running off to the playground next to the tennis courts. The week I failed and he was off straight after being released from… Continue Reading “Living Arrows – post tennis play”

Living Arrows – tunnel reflection

Living Arrows 2017 week 22 - tunnel reflection

We had an inset day before half term, and with the weather being beautiful I’d decided that we should go and check out Bosworth Water Park complete with inland beach. Not only was there a small lake for paddling but there was a great pirate playground. N loved it, and I managed to grab this photo of him just as he stopped to say ‘no photos’. The tunnel reflection looks a bit like rippling water.  Nothing like the sandy murky… Continue Reading “Living Arrows – tunnel reflection”

Living Arrows 2017 week 21 – looking up

Living Arrows 2017 week 21 - looking up

A day spent in St Nicholas’ Park playing mini golf, going on fair rides, the playground and riding his bike. I’d say that was a pretty much perfect day for a 6 year old boy. This shot I’ve chosen for living arrows this week, was when N was on a little netted ’roundabout’ swing. He still looks really young here, despite his huge front teeth!  I’m predicting he’ll be like me and need a tooth or two out, and a… Continue Reading “Living Arrows 2017 week 21 – looking up”

Living Arrows – reflective play

Living Arrows 2017 week 20 - mirror reflections

N had numerous strange things that he’s taken ownership of over the years. This compact mirror from a cracker has been floating around the kitchen for a while, and the other day he was playing around with it. He spotted I had the camera out and wanted to see if I could get a photo of me reflected in the mirror. It was a bit blurry, but I was more excited to see outdoors through the window reflected in his eye.… Continue Reading “Living Arrows – reflective play”

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”
