Living Arrows 3/52 (2018)

It’s another week of Living Arrows. Every Monday I will be sharing a photo that celebrates childhood.

The project originally took its name from a poem –

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”

Kahlil Gibran


This week has been a fairly quiet week. last weekend was my 40th Birthday and since the excitement of celebrating me getting old it has been a quiet week. Pottering round the house and going to J’s playgroup. J has been waking early during the week due to our neighbours leaving for work early and due to him being a light sleeper, is waking.

This has meant that some days he has fallen asleep on the sofa. J gave his naps up quite a while ago. Like anyone, when you get over tired you need a power nap.

The second photo of the week is a quick snap of E and J on the sofa. We had an eventful Sunday this weekend. J had a fall which resulted in us spending most of the day at A&E. Seeing consultants, x-rays etc. Poor J can’t put his foot down and walk on it properly. However from what was seen on the X-ray there are no major breaks or fractures. A more experienced radiology consultant will be looking at the X-ray this week to see if anything else will be noticed.

E has been looking after J and giving him lots of cuddle’s.

      It was really scary. I was quite distraught and worried sick. Glad there was no major break.

    Bless your little boy – hope the x-ray check shows that there is nothing to worry about. It’s lovely how his sister is looking out for him.

    Poor little guy! Hope he feels better soon. What a lucky boy to have such a caring big sister.
