“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran Surprise, surprise, the illness is still lingering – this week a slight temperature for Izzie. Luckily it was easily controlled with Calpol, and she was more than happy to get out of the house on Saturday.

I hadn’t seen the Living Arrows Linky until recently and I’m so excited to be joining in – albeit a bit late for the start of the year. I take a lot of photos on my ‘big’ camera, and I enjoy it, but the smaller moments are normally captured on my iPhone, and that is where all my images this week came from. Three…
