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

Ever feel that perhaps you have bitten off more than you can chew? That is how I feel as I write this on Sunday evening. However that is pretty much my usual feeling when I have not been at work for two weeks. I always get nervous to what I am going to return to. What has been done in my absence and what hasn’t. It’s also not helped by a number of blog deadlines looming too. Yet again I think that this week will be all about burning the midnight oil. Fingers crossed I am finally over the jet lag and can sleep more than a couple of hours at a time.

This weeks photo of Kipper was taken in Vancouver. He loves a chocolate ice cream and had one after dinner on the Monday evening. He chose a chocolate cone with sprinkles. Unusually he agreed to pose for the camera. I took several shots since I am not normally granted the option of a photo shoot. But I chose this one because he looks very serious. I wonder if it give a glimpse into the future when the cheeky toddler is no more. The sun has made his hair even blonder. I think getting back into the usual routine of nursery is going to be a struggle for him too.

Monkey’s was taken when we visited Ludlow Castle. We were away in Shropshire on a review stay and on Saturday decided to venture to the town which was a few miles away. It was a beautiful market town and one I would have loved to have spent longer nosing around. They had a little market and Monkey wanted a book on birds eggs. It was published in 1954 and matches a bird watching book his grandmother gave him a few months ago. I caught him studying it in the castle walls. He can be a real book worm. But only when it’s something he is interested in.

Fingers crossed for a straightforward albeit busy week. See you on the other side.

  1. Your eldest son reminds me of my eldest daughter, she loves learning about everything and is always interested in things like bird eggs. Theres a cabinet in our local farm with lots of different eggs inside and she will spend hours there If I let her.

  2. That stonework is incredible and the icecream of course! I am fascinated with old buildings #livingarrows

    It is hard to get back into a routine after such a lovely but long journey holiday. I hope your week goes smoothly.

    someone looks hungry and I like Castle you should have post more pictures of the Castle looks really cool.

  6. That is definitely a familiar feeling for me. We are always somewhere, always doing something. It’s constant. I’ve always said I’ll slow down and step back a little if we ever stop enjoying it! x

  7. Lovely pictures – I love the one of Kipper, I think it’s good to capture a serious face every once in a while! I hope you’ve survived the week and got everything done that you needed to 🙂
