Living Arrows – Freedom to Run

It’s been 11 months since I last posted a blog post, but I couldn’t think of any better way to return than this: a picture of my boy, now aged five and three quarters (the three quarters matter when you are five) doing one of the things he most loves to do.

A vast open space, and the freedom to run.

His childhood sometimes feels like it is flying by and like, I guess, a lot of parents, I sometimes want to set the world to slow motion to give me the time to really savour these moments. A moment captured in a photograph is frozen in time for ever, and so often it’s the best I can do.

I used to blog under the title of Sweetener and Spice and took a break when infertility, illness and life all got a bit too much. I’ve chosen a new blog title to reflect our small numbers, but our size makes us no less of a family. I’m possibly the world’s most inconsistent blogger – having been at it on and off since 2005 – but I do love all the little insights and memories that previous blog posts give me, which is why I’ve decided to start again.

  1. I’m honoured that you picked my linky to join in with for your first post back – and I can completely understand your time away. Your son is beautiful – he looks so happy and free. Athena turns six at the end of the month and so I know how important those three quarters are – she’s even been telling people she’s five and eleven twelfths! x

    1. Thank you Donna. He mostly an incredibly happy kid _although like most children he definitely has his moments! I have a feeling we may get five and eleven twelfths in couple of months too! x

  2. Welcome back to blogging. Childhood certainly does fly by in a blink of an eye, that’s why we parents take so many photo’s I think. Beautiful capture of your little boy on the beach x #LivingArrows
