Living Arrows 13/52

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

Kahlil Gibran

What a glorious weekend we have just had. The sun has been shining and it even hit 17 degrees.This is almost unheard of in Dundee in March! With beautiful blue skies we had to make the most of it.

We now have a new favourite park – Monikie Park, we went there last weekend and Riley asked to go back again this weekend. I decided to take a picnic with us this time. Riley, as always refused to eat the sensible food and tried to plead his way to a packet of crisps. We compromised and eventually he ate half of the roll.

The sun had brought lots of people out and the park was much busier than it was the previous week, but even still Riley had lots of fun running free.


Last week we didn’t make it much further than seeing the ducks and the adventure playpark so this time we took a walk down to the reservoir. We took a walk up one half of the reservoir and had to head back. It was lovely, but the nice weather had brought out the midgees, at points it was almost unbearable to walk through, although Riley didn’t seem bothered. I am still a bit itchy from the bites, they do like to feast on my blood!
