Word of the Week – 13/3/15

Hello and welcome to Word of the Week! Thanks to those of you that linked you last week, as always, it was lovely reading all of your posts. And thanks for all of the anniversary and weekend away well-wishes, lovely of you all. We had a great time, thank you, and of course, it flew 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:


We have, at last, redecorated our kitchen.

We extended and put a new kitchen into our home 8 years ago, so it had been starting to look a bit tired and in need of re-painting. We bought the paint towards the end of last year, and then struggled to find the time to do it, so we finally got a man in to do it, and he’s been and freshened it all up this week. I am so happy! So this week has been all about dust sheets, paint smells, shouting ‘no’ urgently at the kids whenever they went near any drying paintwork, and shopping for new accessories for it. We’d bought a new toaster, kettle and microwave a few weeks ago in readiness, so we’ve got those out and rearranged all of our work tops, furniture, cleared out cupboards, and it’s now feeling like I have a brand new kitchen. Amazing what a lick of paint can do!

And yes, of course I’ll show you the pictures. Just pop by the blog next week for the makeover post…

What about you? What one word sums up your week best? Please grab the badge, link up and share.

  1. Exciting times! I Love a freshly decorated room, and then having an excuse to buy all new accessories to tie in ;).
    Looking forward to the update!.
    Have a great weekend xx

  2. Oooh lovely! Our kitchen needs a makeover… not sure when it will get done though! So much easier when you get a man in to do stuff like that 🙂 or at least I think so!

  3. I love a room after it has just been re-decorated, we just did our office, and it looks so good. I can only imagine how great it must be to have done your kitchen.

    And great choice of word.

  4. Hi Jocelyn,

    YAY! I finally made it over here to link-up again… I’m hoping to be able to participate again every week from here on out… Fingers crossed at least! 😉

    How exciting about your kitchen! I can’t wait to see the pictures next week. I have been in the process of redecorating my bedroom for a few months now but my health has gotten in the way of completing it. Hoping to get it done SOON as I do not have much in the way of patience most of the time and I really just want it to be done already.

    Wishing you a lovely weekend and I’ll talk to you next week!

    Much love,

    Lysa xx

  5. That’s brilliant! Sometimes, just a lick of paint is enough to make you feel like you’ve got a brand new room, isn’t it? I love it when we freshen up a room, change a few things here and there. I haven’t done that in ages!

  6. Loving your word of the week linky.

    I’m having trouble accessing your Kano Competition page, I just get a blank page? it may be me/my browser but I’ve cleared my cache and it persists, hope it isn’t an issue. (shame as I was just telling my youngest son about the Kano last night, and am planning on getting him one for Christmas)

  7. Hi Jocelyn, I envy you as our kitchen/ house needs a good lick of paint to get it looking fresh again. It’s actually been on the cards for the past two years, but we just never get there. My husband works long hours in the summer, but hopefully next winter….

  8. Looking forward to seeing the pictures, it’s great how a new splash of colour can transform a room.
    I’ve linked up last week’s and this week’s as I was busy being nurse Mumma last weekend and forgot to link.
    Have a lovely week x
