Living Arrows 21/53 – Off to visit Uncle Richard

Last week just flew by! I had made a plan to see my brother on Friday, then when Friday came I had got busy with other things, life, chores, boring things. So we made a plan to meet up on Saturday lunchtime, which made a nice change. Daisy and I went on the train, leaving Thomas at home so he could sleep before his night shifts, and Daisy and I had a lovely time. This weeks Living Arrows post, Living Arrows 20/53, is now live – hope you enjoy it!

Living Arrows 21/53

Daisy loves to see her Uncles and was excited to see Uncle Richard. We went for a lunch, in a pub by the river, and then we went to the park too. There were lots of park toys; swing, roundabout etc, but there was also a HUGE sandpit with lots of different toys. Daisy had great fun playing in this and it was really nice to be somewhere different for a change as we had travelled 20 minutes by train to meet up with my brother.

Living Arrows 20/53 – Daisy showing off her personality

My little Daisy is a wonderful personality. On one hand, she is feisty, independent and head-strong. On the other hand, she is caring, kind, polite and considerate. At just 2 Daisy already helps me with chores, sometimes without prompting. Daisy is happy to put washing into the machine, puts her own dishes into the sink, and puts her rubbish into the bin. I don’t have to prompt her much to do this now, as it has just become a habit for her already. I’m really pleased, as I want her to be a responsible person as she grows up and I hope that I am teaching her skills for life. This weeks Living Arrows post, Living Arrows 20/53, is now live – hope you enjoy it!

Living Arrows 20/53 - Daisy playing in the washing machine

This was taken at 8am on Thursday, when I had just got Daisy ready to go to her Grandparent’s house for the day. Daisy has already messed up her hair, removed her socks and has mess all over her face. This really sums up her little personality. Daisy is being helpful, putting the socks into the washing machine, but is also looking at me with a cheeky expression – as she knows she shouldn’t be doing that!

Living Arrows 19/53 – Daisy uses my camera!

Another week and another Living Arrows post! Where do the weeks go? I’m finding it hard to believe that we are already 19 Mondays into the year. Probably time to start thinking about saving for Christmas and booking up the last family holiday of our year – seeing Santa in Winter Wonderland at Centerparcs! Last week was a great week, with lots of family time, a day out, me travelling to Manchester for Blog On and much more. In fact, I have written this post while I’m sitting on the train to Manchester on the way to see lots of my lovely blogging friends! Anyway, this weeks Living Arrows post, Living Arrows 19/53, is now live – hope you enjoy it!

Living Arrows 19/53 - Daisy playing with my camera

This is probably the least technical photograph I have ever shared here – but yet one of the ones that I am most proud of too! I showed Daisy how to use one of my cameras recently, and she had great fun looking at herself on the flip-screen and pulling various poses. Also, after she took this photograph she then sat with me and we took some photographs of Daddy together. It was a lovely moment and I felt really amazed at just how fast little ones pick up on technology.

Living Arrows 18/53 – A family holiday in a treehouse

Happy Monday! One of my favourite days of the week is here! I always find Monday is a great day to get motivated, be organised and feel productive for the week ahead. This week, as we’ve just returned from a family holiday, I’ve got lots to keep me busy! This week Thomas has a hospital appointment, Daisy returns back to nursery and I’m having some days where I don’t work this week again. I’m really enjoying a lazy couple of weeks and I’m going to be getting ready for heading to Manchester for the Blog On Conference this weekend – where I’m hosting a session! Anyway, this weeks Living Arrows post, Living Arrows 18/53, is now live – hope you enjoy it!

Living Arrows 18/53

No visit to Centerparcs would be complete with Daisy having a ride in the Peppa Pig car! Daisy has been on this 3 or 4 times in the last 2 years and she seemed to enjoy pressing the buttons and listening to the songs more now.
