Living Arrows #2

Sometimes I take hundreds of photos of the boys and other times I barely take any. I decided that this year would be one where I try to capture a consistent about and document them more. It made sense then that I join in with Donna's linky, Living Arrows.

"Living Arrows is about celebrating childhood. 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”

As a parent I often forget the adventures I went on as a child and it only seems to remind me when the boys do the same. We often get caught up in routine of home school and the adventure that brings that simple childhood pleasures go a miss

Blue Monday Giveaway!

I have always found January a horrid month!
The Boys seem to be grouchy and suffering from “January Blues” but rationally they have every right to be.

We have spent over a month preparing for Christmas, shopping, facing the maddening crowds and then the panic to make sure that our family time is perfect.
We have had time off work and our normal routine is swapped with family enjoyment, late nights and over indulging in food and drink.

However, around a week later and we are back to work, back to early mornings, school runs, making lunches and the true concept of adult and parent life continues.
We had a week to forcefully wake ourselves up and get our children ready and organised. We dragged ourselves back into a routine that I know a lot of people were dreading; especially when there were hundreds of Facebook statuses and tweets saying exactly that.

The weather is dreadful where it is cold and raining and we still have dark mornings and it becoming dark despite around 5pm. Who wouldn’t feel depressed, grumpy and tired?
Today, Monday the 16th, is officially Blue Monday the most depressing day of the year!
