Living Arrows – Growing Up!


Isabelle is growing up so fast and becoming so independent. I know she’s only 7 but sometimes it feels like shes 7 going on 17.  She enjoyed a pampered party at her friends house over the weekend. They had their nails done, hair crimped, glitter tattoos with a little bit of make up she had a fantastic time. I took this photo straight after the party and then looked back at her baby photos and thought to myself where has this time gone. All Isabelle talks about after school is boys, boys and more boys. I found a little love letter she wrote calling a boy ‘her gummy bear.’ I was doing Isabelle’s hair this morning before school I had to get her to sit down, she is just below my shoulders. Ok, I may only  5 foot 1 but that’s not the point. I think I’ve got to stop calling her my little girl even though deep down she will always be! [Read more…]


The Great Outdoors

As a family we enjoy heading outdoors, going on adventures and becoming a family of explorers. Especially now summer is on it’s way, it’s a perfect time to grab my camera and capture our outdoor adventures.

Last weekend we went for a walk to one of our local nature reserves, which has a mixture of large open space, woodland, bridges to walk over various streams, streams to paddle in and a large pond.

We decided to take granddads three labardoodles on our little adventure outdoors and the girls were over the moon.

When we set off the sun was shining and it was quite warm outside. Isabelle and Scarlett enjoyed running around in all the open space, throwing the ball to the dogs and chasing after each other. It was lovely watching them play together and enjoy time outside.

Kids Say The Funniest Things

I love Wednesday’s as it’s a day Scarlett and I can spend some time together. Without preschool and now that her swimming lessons have moved to after school we get to enjoy a full day together.

This morning we popped into our local cafe for some cake, juice and tea.

Scarlett loves it here so we try and come at least once a week after we have dropped Isabelle off at school.

Fun Run For Cancer Research

Today was the day I took part in my first fun run for Cancer Research. 

I would of never imagined myself being a runner, but at the beginning of the year I wanted to get fit and feel healthier within myself. I want to be able to take part in runs like this to raise money for great causes.


I want to join the battle against cancer.

The Ordinary Moments – A little adventure outdoors

The weather has been a bit hit and miss this past week, but whilst the sun came out (even if it was only for a few hours) we took a little adventure outdoors.

The girls nor I were dressed to venture up hills, take a trip to the park or a stroll through the woods but we had a fantastic time together and that’s all that matters.

The Ordinary Moments – My little girls off to school!

I can not believe Scarlett will be starting school this September.

Wednesday was the day we received the email confirming her place at the same school as her sister.

Although we are thrilled, I’m going to miss her so much.

She is our little girl, growing up so quickly and becoming more independent as each day passes.

Daddies Day Off!

Being the Easter holidays Ali managed to take a day off work and enjoy a day with us.

Isabelle and Scarlett enjoy spending time with daddy when he’s not busy at work and of course Ali loves spending time with his girls.

We played a game of Jurrasic golf followed by a lovely lunch, a bit of water zorbing and fun on a giant slide.
