New Year's Day. Living Arrows 1 {2018}

New Year's Day and we're off to a great start. We made it out of the house, all together! If I wasn't watching my food and alcohol intake (that may be something to do with a New Year Resolution - boring, I know), I'd have a glass of something to celebrate 😍

There's a blog linky called Living Arrows which I've wanted to join in with for a while. The idea is to post once every week with an update about what the children have been up to. An online diary. You can see why this would appeal to me, right?! 
My children are not so young any more, and this kind of linky takes me back to the early days of blogging, when it seemed like there was more time to talk about the smaller stuff (and people!). Even though they're older now, there's still a lot happening which I'd love to record for our own memories, so we'll see how I get on. Not promising every week will be blogged about, but with such a positive start to our year I couldn't not join in today!

We made it to a playground. It nearly didn't happen; there was more frustration, and tears from Sasha as she wanted to go out, but didn't want to go out. There's been a pattern of this of late; cold, damp weather is not her favourite and she's much happier snuggling at home - until she gets out that is.

The original plan was to walk from the house to a nearby stretch of grass with a tree swing, but we tend to have to change plan and wishes to suit Sasha to ensure she's happy to leave the house. So top marks to eldest daughter who didn't complain at all even though she wanted to walk to the swing rather than go in the car. 

We all had fun as a family. There were lots of laughs. Even though these times don't happen as often as I'd like them to anymore, remembering them will always put a smile on my face.

Happy New Year everyone!
