Living Arrows 48/53 – another holiday snapshot

Happy Monday! I’m a bit slow today as I had a lovely lay in! It was bliss and I feel refreshed for the day ahead! This week is a bit of a cheat and I’m going to be sharing with you another holiday snapshot from two weeks ago. I don’t have many suitable photos to share from the last week as Daisy visited her Nanny & Grandad, Grandma twice and went to Nursery. This week we’ve got more time together which I’m really pleased about. This weeks Living Arrows 48/53 post is now live – we went on holiday!!

I took this photograph last week, and then spent some time playing around with it in Lightroom. I love that you can only see the purple within this photo and it’s surprising what areas have lit up.

Living Arrows 47/53 – a holiday snapshot (AD)

AD. Another week has flown by, and this week we were on holiday! I was really looking forward to having a break from work and spending lots of time with some of my favourite people. It was the perfect relaxing break and I did no work, which makes a big change for me! This weeks Living Arrows 47/53 post is now live – we went on holiday!!

Living Arrows 47/53 - Us on holiday

I’ve already shared this on Instagram but it’s a little snapshot from our week. We had a hot tub in our lodge and it was great fun. Daisy asked to go in the ‘swimming pool’ regularly and we had the best time. It was so relaxing, just being at one with nature, enjoying fresh air and not worrying about work, chores or anything else home related.

Living Arrows 45/53 – a fireworks display

Another week has gone by – one week until we go away! I can’t wait now! Really looking forward to having a break from work and spending lots of time with some of my favourite people. This weeks Living Arrows 45/53 post is now live – Daisy went to see a firework display!

This is definitely not the best quality image ever, I know, but it was dark and we were rushing to get a good spot for the fireworks display. It worked out and we could actually see the bonfire from where we were too, just about. Daisy was a little bored waiting for the fireworks and wanted to go home just after they started (typical) but we had a nice time anyway!

Living Arrows 43/53 – day to day life

Another week has run on by! This means there are only 3 weeks until we go on holiday. Eek! I’ve got a lot of plans in the next few weeks but can’t wait for us to have a family break. The week has zipped by, and has been a good one, despite us all starting to battle colds at the end of the weekend! We went for a family meal, I got lots of work done and it’s been a great week overall. This weeks Living Arrows 43/53 post is now live – hope you enjoy it!

Living Arrows 43/53 - Daisy in the supermarket

We started our week by having a day at home and then heading on out to run some errands. I took Daisy to the supermarket and the chemist inside. She wanted to stand in the trolley bag so I thought it would be funny to let her. I try to be relaxed, and let Daisy use her imagination. This offended someone in the supermarket who made a rude comment to her husband, but it’s ok as I told her to zip her lip! (Not the lady in the picture!)

Living Arrows 42/53 – playing with toys

The last week has flown by! We’ve had lots of days relaxing together at home, after unexpected childcare changes, and we’ve made the most of it. Daisy has loved being able to play lots of toys (including lots of new ones). This does mean I’ve got a little behind on work! I’m looking forward to 3 days this week to cram lots of work in. Then the rest of the time playing toys and relaxing together. While at home one-day last week I was playing blocks with Daisy, and we were building towers, which is one of her favourite activities! This weeks photo is taken from that activity. My Living Arrows 42/53 post is now live. Albeit a little late! 

Living Arrows 42/53 - Daisy makes a tower

Here she is with one of her towers! She built this herself and was really pleased. She’s actually mixed together Duplo and Megabloks. Why not hey?! I love seeing Daisy building structures, learning and having fun. Also, the Duplo set that these blocks are from have cogs too. It is great to see her learning how to use those. It’s so lovely to watch your child learn and develop. I feel really grateful that I get to be home with her most days.
