Living Arrows Week 5 {2018}

I am taking part in Donna from What the Redhead Said’s Living Arrows – which is a celebration of childhood!

We could all do with a little more celebration in our lives!

To quote Donna, “The project originally took it’s name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran,

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” and every Monday we share a moment (or a few!) from our week which captures a moment of childhood

Week 5

Another week of being ill! These coughs will not shift! So not a lot to report here. Lots of watching The Wiggles going on. Is anyone else have a child who is a fan of The Wiggles? RLT is bordering on being obsessed. This image is of him watching them on the tv. He thought him and the cat were having a lovely bonding moment of watching them bash out another hit such as ‘Hot Potato’ or ‘Toot Toot Chugga Chugga Big Red Car’ but what RLT isn’t aware of is the mouse that is hiding behind the speaker of the TV that the cat is waiting for. I put a humane trap down next to it and couldn’t do anything else as they TERRIFY me. They seem to hop around and I don’t like that…. but yes, joys of living next to a nature reserve, being a cat owner and letting said cat have a cat flap in the internal door of the house as well as the outside one. We think she is trying to teach the little man how to hunt, as they’re always alive. Gross but true. If you’re wondering why I don’t take more drastic action with the cat, you can find out why I’m so soft with her here.

    We’ve not tried The Wiggles just yet, I’m going to give it a go tomorrow if we’re still stuck in the land of the sick… anything to break up Peppa bloody Pig or Fireman Sam!! On the plus side of the mouse invasion, it does make for a very cute picture! x

    Oh no, so sorry you’ve been poorly! I hope you’re all better soon – and do you know what…. I’ve never even heard of The Wiggles! Where have I been?! x
