Living Arrows Week 46 2019

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

Each week I like to (try and) link up to a series called Living arrows which is about celebrating childhood. You can find out more here

The first of this weeks photos is of Moose on Children In Need day. He had asked me for a t-shirt to wear for school. Moose was excited that they were allowed to take part and help raise a little money so off I went to Asda and this was the t-shirt I chose.

When I got home I noticed that the receipt said that it was a girls t-shirt and I just thought that it was a bit of a shame. There is nothing about this t-shirt that would make me think that it was particularly feminine. Just a grey t-shirt with kind and positive words on it – and don’t both boys and girls need those?


This photo of Bess needs a confession. It’s actually one I snapped last week in London but promptly forgot about until browsing my gallery today. I love that as soon as she saw the Yamaha sitting in the station she didn’t hesitate to go over and bash the keys.  I wish she had sung along too. Bess has a beautiful voice (I know I am biased). She didn’t know I had taken this photo but I couldn’t resist. She looks so happy.

    I love how they have pianos in train stations and airports – Music after all is the food of love.

    How lovely that the piano was just sitting there waiting to be played! I agree it’s a shame that the tee said it was for girls. Some of the girls/boys stuff really grates on me! x
