Word of the Week 13/11/15

Hello and welcome to Word of the Week. I cannot believe that we’re only a few weeks from Christmas already, another year of WotW flying by!

If you’re new here, Word of the Week is a nice and simple weekly linky, with everyone welcome to pop by and share. You reflect back on the past week and sum it up in one word. Then share your word with us in a blog post, with as little or as much explanation as you like. It’s a fun and friendly linky, so please do be lovely and visit as many of the other blogs as you can and share with them your thoughts on their words and weeks. I do comment on every entry to the linky, and if you add the Word of the Week badge to your post to help spread the ‘word’, I also tweet them out.

My word of the week this week is:


Yes, that’s where I feel I’ve been all week!

This weather is not inspiring me to get out at all. At the weekend, we did go out to the National Pet Show, which we all loved, though that of course was indoors. Other than that, we’ve popped to see family, indoors, and my only fresh air has been the school runs.

A few times this week, Little Man and I have planned to go out for a walk and then it’s started lashing it down, or he’s asked to go to the playground amid a storm! It’s been frustrating when we’ve fancied the exercise and change of scenery.

But then, it has had it’s upsides. We’ve had lots of snuggles, watched some fun movies, and I’ve really enjoyed seeing my son immerse himself in imaginary play, be it castles, Toy Story, superheroes, Duplo, Playmobil, Star Wars or Play Doh, he’s absolutely loved it.

And then once the kids have gone to bed, I’ve been quite content relaxing on the sofa and getting lost in my books, managing to read 3 this week and I treated myself to a magazine, too, which was a nice change. Indoors has it’s pluses!

What about you? What one word sums up your week best?

Please grab the badge, link up and share.

  1. It’s definitely been a week for spending time indoors and sounds like you and Little Man have been enjoying it despite the moments of cabin fever! How lovely that you’ve managed to read three books this week too – I’m still only halfway through the one I started at the beginning of this month and it’s not even that long! Sometimes there just needs to be more hours in the day! Hope you have a lovely weekend and thank you for hosting #WotW 🙂

  2. I don’t blame you. With weather like this I would happily hibernate if given the chance! Hopefully we’ll get a break soon and be able to get out and about and stay dry too! x

  4. It has been one of those weeks hasn’t it? Which in our house means quire a bit of bouncing off the walls! It will be nice when being indoors means snuggling up with a book… though I confess I have been squeezing in a lot of reading lately and just finished reading reading all the Harry potters! ? x

  5. Hi Jocelyn, what’s your secret. I know you are a busy lady, so how do you manage to read three books in a week? At best I manage two (sometimes three) a month!

    I do enjoy it when we get bad weather and don’t have to leave the house, it’s a novelty. I hate the cold and a winter in England would probably be the death of me, but a day or two of bad weather I enjoy. It’s also nice with a little one as you can settle down and play without interruption.

    Thank you for hosting.


  6. Sounds a mixed week, and the weather has been temperamental hasn’t it? Luckily I’ve dodged it well so far…. but that’s like tempting fate 🙂 Have a fab weekend and thanks for hosting xx

  7. It hasn’t been a good week at all weather wise has it….I think bears have the right idea with hibernating! hehehe I would love to. I am so glad now that I don’t really have to go out again till Monday morning….
