Living Arrows 38/53 – Daddy and Daisy weekend

Happy Tuesday!! I’m a little bit slow out the starting blocks this week. After missing last week I knew that I’d have to get this post up or I’d be cursing myself for falling out of the habit! This weeks Living Arrows post, Living Arrows 38/53, is now live.

Living Arrows 38/53

On the weekend I was away in Manchester. I had to leave at 8am on Saturday and I didn’t get back until around 11pm on Sunday night. I had an absolute blast, and it was so worth it, but I did miss my little family. Still, Thomas had the weekend off work and him and Daisy got to have a lovely time together.

Living Arrows 36/53 – Time at home

Happy Monday! Hope you’ve had a lovely relaxing weekend with your family. I REALLY hope that this week is going to be a little better than the one that just ended! I had to attend A&E this week, because of pain in my ankle, only to be told there is nothing obviously wrong with the bone and I need to see my GP. Thankfully I’ve got an appointment again on Wednesday so I’m praying for a referral for an MRI. Daisy has had lots of days at home with me this week, as I can’t really get down the 48 stairs from our flat to the ground floor! This weeks Living Arrows post, Living Arrows 36/53, is now live.

Living Arrows 36/53 - Daisy with her Yumbox

As I’ve got such a bad ankle (possible tendonitis) Daisy has had to have lots of days at home. I’ve been trying hard to keep her entertained and one of the days I made her this treat box up, in her Yumbox, to allow her to have a treat. I’ve packed her two squares of chocolate, some plain popcorn, a tangerine, a few sweets, an apple and peanut butter on gluten-free crackers. She was so excited and it lasted her for the whole afternoon.

Living Arrows 34/53 – A day with Grandma

Happy Monday! I’m sad for Monday this week because Thomas is going back to work after a week off. We’ve had a lovely week together. A few days Daisy was out, at Nursery, and one of the days she went over to my Mum’s house, her Grandma’s house, for the day. This meant that I had an entire day to work and catch up on sleep, as Daisy is favouring the night-time hours at the moment! Anyway, Monday has arrived, and this weeks Living Arrows post, Living Arrows 34/53, is now live. Also, sorry for my absence the last two weeks! I had a virus, which kicked me into touch a little! I’m finally getting back on track with work now though.

Living Arrows 28/53 – Daisy on a ride

On the weekend we headed down to see my brother. We arrived late Friday night, and only had 1.5 days together, but we decided to make the most of them. On our first day together, Saturday, we decided to head down to Clacton Pier together and we let Daisy go on her first EVER ride by herself – scary! This weeks Living Arrows post is live, Living Arrows 28/53.

Living Arrows 28/53 - Daisy playing on a swing

Daisy went on a little swing ride. It was really fast, and she absolutely loved it. Watching her climb in, and get strapped in, I just couldn’t believe how grown up she suddenly looked. Then the ride started up and she had so much fun. I felt so privileged that we’ve already had almost 2.5 years together, and she’s so confident and social. Watching her whizz around, laughing, singing and having an amazing time trying to catch her cousin Eddie’s attention was absolutely adorable.
