I’ve decided to take a break from blogging for the time being. I want to really make a go of my photography business and feel like I’m trying (and failing) to do so much and that needs to be my priority right now. I have lots of blogging ideas though so no doubt I’ll be back at some point! In the meantime, Lauren at Real Housewife of Suffolk County is going to be taking over Living Arrows. She’s been part of the project since the very beginning (and even before!) and I really hope that everyone who takes part and has supported the project (and thank you SO much for that!) continues to do so.


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

I had it in my head that I’d be one of those “cool mums” with a girl that wants to dress as batman. As it turns out,  I have a little one that ticks every single “girl” box. She loves pink, dressing up shoes (so much love for those!), handbags, awful plastic jewellery, ballet, dollies, fairies, tea parties….and I LOVE it! I love to see her pink wellies and pink coat hanging up. Not sure I love her stealing my clothes already though……

Family TravelGiveaway! Yay! Exciting times. Sadly it’s *not* a holiday on this occasion (I know, right?) but if you’re always planning the next adventure and want to explore the world with your kids in tow then do I have the event for you. And if you don’t but want to see a few photos from our break in Devon, scroll on my friend. At the end of the month, the first Family Travel Show is taking place at London Olympia (31st October & 1st November) and I have a pair of tickets to give away. It’s a great opportunity to gain inspiration and advice from travel bloggers and celebrity speakers and there’s likely to be some great show-only offers. Covering everything from all-inclusive luxury getaways, exciting cruise voyages, action-packed resorts and family-friendly villas, to intriguing adventures, thrilling ski holidays and incredible wildlife safaris, there’s something for everyone. If you have a budding young photographer on your hands, there’s also the chance for them to win some goodies by taking part in the Young Travel Photographers Competition. There’s an under 11s category and a 12-17 and my gosh, are these kids talented! You can see the entries so far and find out how your child can enter HERE.

We have managed a few fun trips this year, although we didn’t venture abroad which is probably just as well as I recently discovered that Bevan’s passport expired (Well done us. On the ball as usual). We went to Brixham in Devon back in August and it was the first time I’d been to that part of the country. The weather wasn’t the best (typically is was amazing the week after!) but the place was just beautiful, I was in my happy snapping element! I have the best memories of family holidays as a child and it’s wonderful to be creating new ones with my own family.
