Living Arrows | Easy like Sunday morning…

‘You are the bows from which your children as living arrows, are sent forth’ Kahlil Gibran

This weekend we have mostly been running around like headless chickens with lots to do but accomplishing basically nothing. It’s always the way when you have so much to do that whatever you try to do just doesn’t seem to work, do you know what I mean? It’s the pressure I think. Anyway we had a good reason to be busy because we are off to Butlins today, which the whole household is very excited about! The girls for all the rides and shows and swimming, and Carl and I just for a week off from cooking, cleaning and loading the dishwasher!

Anyway, we didn’t have any outdoor adventures this weekend so our photos are from a lazy Sunday afternoon (by that point we had given up trying to get much done and were just trying to keep everyone happy until bedtime). Ernie was playing on the floor with some toys, I read Mabel her new magazine, and then Carl made the girls bacon sandwiches and we watched Britain’s got Talent from the night before.

I’m very much a beginner at using my DSLR in manual mode, and I find indoor photography really tricky, but for all its faults, I actually really like this photo.

Carl took this photo (obviously because I’m in it, but if I don’t give him credit he’ll sulk)

    Sounds like a lovely chilled afternoon and sometimes they are needed. Have an enjoyable time away at Butlins.

    What a lovely afternoon to have. It looks and sounds fun and I especially like the shot of you and your daughter reading. Angela popping by from #LivingArrows

    Have a wonderful time away. Impressive indoor photography, I struggle with it too! And well done Carl…. My other have gets handed the camera once in a while…. Capture me and the children I say…, invariably there’s a shot of my bum….
