Every week I join in with Living Arrows, a blog linky run by Donna at What the Redhead Said. The name Living Arrows comes from a poem by Kahlil Gibran; “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”, and each Monday I share a photo of M, and one of B, and a bit about what we’ve been up to the previous week.
Last week was a difficult week. We’ve suffered a close family bereavement, so our time has been spent navigating that as a family. I’m not going to say very much more about it, as I know that the person we’ve lost wouldn’t want me to share it online. Needless to say it’s not been a usual sort of week.
Life does go on, though, so we’ve been making the most of our time together. On Saturday we went for lunch at our favourite café in Beccles. B enjoyed a babyccino, as you can see from her photograph.
On Sunday, we went for a walk with friends at Whitlingham Broad. It was a bit drizzly and my coat didn’t have a hood, so I used the emergency umbrella from the car. Of course M wanted to carry it, but fortunately it had pretty much stopped raining by this point, so I didn’t mind.
I’m hoping this week will bring some sunnier weather as a bit of sunshine makes everything feel better, doesn’t it?
