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.

Living Arrows 31/53 – A week of visiting relatives

Happy Monday! I’m so glad that Monday is here – mostly because Thomas and I are about to head off to a hotel for two nights. Woohoo! I’ve been really poorly the last week, with a virus, and to be honest I’m still not feeling grand. Still, us parents soldier on, the best we can hey! The last week has passed by in a flash, as I’ve spent a lot of time in bed sleeping or resting. Thankfully my in-laws and my Mum have taken Daisy some of the time for me to help me get as much rest as possible. This weeks Living Arrows post, Living Arrows 31/53, is now live.

This may be the ONLY photograph that I took of Daisy this week that is suitable for use online. She wasn’t at home much, and when she was she kept taking her nappy off!

Living Arrows 30/53 – Daisy visited the dietician

I’m so glad that Monday is here. I really need a fresh week. Last week was a rubbish one, with someone I know online passing away, and me just feeling really low for the bulk of the week. I spent the evening last night reminding myself of all the great things in my life, and what I want to achieve. I’ve got organised for the week ahead and I’m feeling much better in myself now. I’m looking forward to seeing what the week has in store for me. This weeks Living Arrows post, Living Arrows 30/53, is now live.

Living Arrows 30/53 - Daisy at the dietician

First up Daisy had a visit to the dietician this week. It wasn’t strictly needed, but came about due to a mix up, and someone on the reception just not understanding what I was trying to say. We didn’t need an appointment for a few months as we had just seen a dietician at another hospital. Anyway – we went, and it was great. Daisy was bored though so she got to play out in the play area with Thomas while I took the bulk of the appointment alone.

Living Arrows 29/53 – Daisy and Mummy day

Life has been so hectic recently! I’ve spent lots of time running from place to place, heading into London and generally just being really, really busy. This weekend just passed I decided to live at a bit of a slower pace, for self preservation if nothing else. I didn’t take a lot of photographs, I didn’t do much work and we just generally took it easy. I got a little cleaning done, and some organising, and Daisy and I spent lots of time together. This weeks Living Arrows post is live, Living Arrows 29/53.

Living Arrows 29/53

Daisy and I were having a cuddle on the sofa together when I decided that I wanted to take a photograph of her. It’s not perfect, but it is us, together, on the sofa, relaxing. I know I’ll want to look back at this moment and remember how happy we were. It was a great relaxing day, playing lots of toys, and Daisy was in a wonderful mood for most of the day too. It was really lovely, and I felt so relaxed at the time of this photograph.

Living Arrows 26/53 – Daisy takes a trip to soft play

Soft play. Groan. That’s usually how it goes – right?! Well, not this time! Last week, on Tuesday, we took Daisy off to soft play – and it was the ultimate dream. It was quiet. It was clean. There was no loose food on the floor. There were only 2 other children playing in there too and they weren’t interested in the areas that Daisy was old enough to play in. Win, win! We had a great time and as always I want to share a post with you! This weeks Living Arrows post is live, Living Arrows 26/53 – WHERE IS THE YEAR GOING?!
