"A portrait of my family, once a week, every week, in 2014."

Relaxing in the garden, enjoying the sun and pretending to be Robin Hood. My uncle gave the boys these bow and arrow sets, but they aren't exactly easy for them to use, there was a lot of frustration which I'm trying hard to help Daniel understand and deal with. I'm still winging my way through this parenting lark, never sure of the balance between ignoring their emotions or being over the top, because we all know children are little drama queens.

I failed a little this week, but I found this on my feed and feel it's pretty apt actually. An unplanned #nomakeupselfie for cancer research, I cannot believe how much money and awareness has been raised by this, truly amazing. An after-yoga selfie, I managed to get up nice and early twice this week and fit in 15 minutes before having to start the morning rush, with the boys joining in which is literally the most adorable thing.
