Living Arrows Week Nine {2015}

March 2, 2015

Music is an important part of my everyday life, whether I’d completing the housework, doing the school run or even pottering around the supermarket I like to have music wherever I go. Roo has always been one for joining in with whichever song happens to be on the radio, whereas Tigger has just started to voice his opinion on whether he like a certain song or not.

A couple of years as go we bought Roo some headphones (pink of course) so that she could listen to different music in the car or if we were on a long journey she could watch a film without having to listen to the radio (or my singing). Nowadays she plugs them into her tablet so that she can listen to the music and sound effects as she plays on different apps. With Tigger receiving his own tablet from ‘Santa’ at Christmas this week I decided to treated him to a similar pair of headphones as Roo (blue of course).

Needless to say he loves his new headphones and is quite happy in his own little world listening to CBeebies or a movie via them.

    Lovely photo! We recently bought headphones for our two and they love them, although we’ve only used them so far on a plane or in the car. They definitely made a big difference on a long drive that we had to do the other week. We also have a blue pair and a pink pair!

    He must feel so grown up having his own headphones now. Definite picture of concentration. #livingarrows

    Oh bless him, he is miles away. We have similar headphones for the boys and they spend many happy hours locked away in their own little worlds. Gorgeous photo
