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.
The highlight of M’s week was definitely meeting Santa on Thursday at Chapelfield shopping centre. It was the latest of their ‘Elf University’ sessions, and M enjoyed seeing all of the elves that she’s got to know over the past few weeks, as well as meeting the big man himself. She received a present from Santa, which I was disappointed to see was a bit of plastic-wrapped plastic; they could have done a bit better on the sustainability front! But M loved it nonetheless.
On Saturday, we had a long-overdue visit to the library. I seem to have forgotten about how lovely this particular library is and how easy it is to get to, as we hadn’t been there for a long time. I think sometimes a bit of anxiety can get the better of me and simple trips out can feel like too much hassle, then when I actually get out there and do it, it’s absolutely fine. Lovely, in fact. This was one of those times! Hopefully now that we’ve had a good visit, I’ll be prepared to visit again, soon.
I’m looking forward to this week as M and I have got a trip to the theatre with her preschool coming up. The grandmas will be looking after B, so it will be nice to have a bit of one-to-one time with M. I don’t think I’ve been to the theatre since before she was born, so I’m really excited. Let’s hope the performance lives up to my expectations!
