Living Arrows 25/52

Living Arrows

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 from our week and invite others to do the same as part of this linky.”





Week 25/52 Living Arrows

Birthday Boy

We now have a one year old. Eeeeeek.

It had been an emotional week as Mark’s Granddad died on Monday, he had been a role model to Mark since he was a boy, so it has been particularly hard for him.

Some friends at work had been told they were at risk of redundancy too, so as positive and happy as I was trying to be for the little one, lots of other things were going on in the background.

Emotions were kept in check and everyone pulled together for little man’s birthday on Saturday. We invited immediate family over rather than a whole host of people due to Mark’s family situation.

Little man had a great time with his three cousins, we couldn’t have asked for more glorious weather either. He got lots of toys, clothes and books, including this England rugby kit and ball, which he wore to watfh the rugby with his daddy.
