Living Arrows 2015 {2/52}

This weekend I got to spend some time with just Ella while my mum looked after Lucy. An adventure with my big girl...

Her nursery had organised a trip to see 'We're going on a bear hunt' at The Lowry theatre. So we left the house early and headed to the tram to meet her friends. I have to confess this was what I was most excited about! Despite having lived in Manchester for nearly 15years I have only ever been on the tram once and that was just a quick hop across the city centre. To now be able to get a tram from South Manchester to Salford Quays is amazing. And Ella would have been more than happy to just sit on the tram (maybe we'll save that for another day!) she loved looking out of the window and pointing things out. 

It was really windy, cold and wet on Saturday and Ella was really good on the whole but had a little bit of a meltdown on the platform before we set off. The wind was so strong and I don't think she quite understood what was happening or where we were going. Other than that she sat well on the tram, listened really well to my instructions throughout the day and sat and got involved in the play for pretty much the whole hour it was on. I hadn't taken the pushchair with me as I knew the walking was short distances but it's still a gamble with Ella and what mood she's in! She can just decide to sit and not move/lie down/drag on your arm and not walk properly or just demand to be carried (not good for my back now she's so big). Thanks to Cath and Charlotte for helping me with hand holding, swinging and words of encouragement to Ella! 

Living Arrows


  1. So nice to have some quality one one time - lovely shots, especially the reflection one, makes you wonder what she is thinking there x

  2. These photographs are beautiful. The first one needs to go in a frame that is simply stunning xx

  3. Gorgeous photos. Sounds like a lovely day. My little boy is the same, thought we had got to a good stage, but as soon as I had sold the double buggy, I now too enjoy the fun of whether he will walk with me, paddy in the street or demand to be carried. Not ideal when there's an actual baby around too. Haha, lovely you had friends along to help. Sounds like you should definitely visit the trams again :) #livingarrows

    1. Thank you, We will definitely be going on the tram again!
