Living Arrows Week 51

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 51

Sharing is caring

It is taking little man a bit of time to adjust to UK time again after our holiday to Cuba. We’ve had to stop his daytime naps to try and get back our routine, although on Friday he didn’t wake up until 8:40 and I felt like a new person!

Little man was officially 18 months old as of yesterday. He is looking such a mini-gent these days as you can see. The bond between boy and cat seems to have strengthened with us being on holiday and Orla Kitty going to the cattery. The cat goes to sit next to RLT willingly now, I thought it was an absolute breakthrough and such a change from her going in the opposite direction; until I witnessed him feeding her shortbread biscuits and then it all made sense. These two have bonded over their love of butter.

I cracked the Christmas shortbread open on Saturday and it didn’t take either of them long to cotton on to the fact that shortbread is one of the best things on earth. Now I am thrilled they’ve bonded, but sadly will have to break this party up as cat diabetes is serious and pretty sure she shouldn’t be eating any kind of biscuits let alone shortbread!
