I am a 6ft Australian girl, living the British country life in beautiful Norfolk, UK.

I have six children, one labradoodle, some cute but sometimes annoying cats, a couple of pom-pom chickens and I am fairly certain – a squad of rats living in the loft of our barn.


Marrying my husband of nearly 25 years is my best move yet – the kindest, most gentle and hard working man I have ever met.
Together we raise our family, build into this blog and aim to encourage and bless others along the way.
One thing we promise you, we won’t sugar-coat what it is like to be a parent in today’s world. We will be honest, authentic and raw, sharing our times of being in the valley of hardship and the mountain tops of joy.

Let’s share life together.
Welcome to Holding Arrows.
Love always. Catherine & Matthew xoxoxox
