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.
Happy Bank Holiday Monday! I must confess we’ve finally reached the point in the summer holidays where I’ve forgotten what day it is, and I forgot to publish my Living Arrows post this morning!
This week I’ve decided to pick one photograph for both of the girls. This one was taken last week, when we took a ride on the Bure Valley Railway, from Aylsham to Wroxham.
M absolutely loves trains and had been itching to go on a ‘train without windows’ since we visited Eastbourne’s Miniature Steam Railway Adventure Park during our holiday to East Sussex a couple of weeks ago.
The trains on the Bure Valley Railway do have windows (and seats and a roof, for that matter!) but M still enjoyed it. I must admit, we picked a lovely day for it as it was beautifully sunny but not too hot, so the 45 minute journey through the Norfolk countryside was wonderfully relaxing.
This week is our last before Matthew is back to school to start his new job, so we’ve got a few plans to meet up with friends to make the most of the last of the holidays. How are you planning to end your summer holidays?
