Living Arrows 25/52 {2019}

June 24, 2019

Every week I join in with Living Arrows, a blog linky run by Donna at What the Redhead Said. The name Living Arrows comes from a poem by Kahlil Gibran; “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”, and each Monday I share a photo of M, and one of B, and a bit about what we’ve been up to the previous week.

Last week felt really long! The weekdays seemed to drag. Perhaps we didn’t get out and do enough? B has been teething again and wanted to feed lots, which led to lots of naps, which she’ll only do on me, which meant that I spent a lot of time under a sleeping baby.

In contrast, the weekend flew by in the blink of an eye. B’s photograph was taken on Sunday, in Matthew’s parents’ garden. B absolutely loves dirt; she’s like a magnet for soil! So she was in her element with a toy trowel, digging in the dirt and transferring it into a big bucket.

M’s photograph was taken at the beach on Saturday. We ended up at the beach at Corton, somewhere we’ve never been before. It was absolutely beautiful! We often go to Lowestoft, just down the road, but there was a festival on at the weekend and we couldn’t find a parking space anywhere. So, we decided to continue along the coast and came across this beach.


There are no facilities there, which means it’s not ideal when you have a recently-potty-trained toddler, but the beach was quiet, and just stunning. I’m so pleased we found it, as we had such a lovely afternoon there. We’ll definitely be returning!

    Both my boys have been digging in the garden this weekend too. It sounds like you found a lovely spot for some beach time too 🙂

      B is constantly digging, even if she doesn’t have a trowel! We are very lucky to live near so many lovely beaches.

  3. It’s lovely when you have to alter your plans and end up finding somewhere you really enjoy. It’s almost like fate intervening. Can’t believe how quickly the girls are growing x
