Word of the Week 18/9/15

Hello and welcome to Word of the Week.

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, I know this could often be my word, but this week it covers so much!

Last weekend I launched my new paper-loving initiative, #SundayStationery. A chance to browse and ogle pretty stationery every weekend, and so easy to get involved with, too. You can find out more about it here if you’re partial to a little stationery yourself, it kicks off this weekend.

I’ve had lots of new books. Like I needed more on my reading pile? If you saw my post on Wednesday, you’ll know that I had the absolute pleasure of working with The Beautiful Book Company, so I’ve received some great reads from them (there are some up for grabs, too!) and I couldn’t resist a forage about in the second hand bookshop on a National Trust outing at the weekend – four more books bought, must make time to read more!

I’ve had my second full day of Open University studying, and there’s something so satisfying about having text and source books to get lost in, whilst making copious notes in my pretty notebook. I’m thoroughly enjoying immersing myself in it all each week, so I do hope that this passion lasts and I am actually on the right track – the first assignment will tell me, I suppose.

I’ve received some lovely snail mail this week. I’d had a bit of a happy mail drought, as happens at times, but with a dozen pen pals, it shouldn’t happen too often! Well, the drought is over as I’ve received some lovely letters this week, which has been great. I’ve also signed up to the back to school stationery swap over at The Crafty Lass and have received my partner’s details this week, so I’ll be putting together a papery package for her over the weekend.

And the final bit of paper? I have a new planner. Yes, with this month’s drive to Get Organised, I really wanted to get one of those gorgeous all-encompassing planners, spiral bound, with stickers and charts – I now have one and I am happy! I’ll reveal more next week…

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

  3. Hi Jocelyn, it’s good to hear that you’ve started your Open University course. I remember reading a while back that it was something you wanted to do. I do like a bit of snail mail too and have one person I keep in contact with using pen and paper, I would love more, but I am just not organised enough to keep on top of writing….I do like the sound of your planner though!

    Thank you for hosting.


    1. I’m so pleased that I decided to go for it, I am absolutely loving it, thanks. I do like my snail mail and stationery, as you know! x

    1. Yep, I know that feeling. I’ve gone for a reasonably priced one initially to see how I get on with it. I’ll share more here next week x

  4. What a lovely word for the week! So glad to read the studies have started well, I’m getting on very well with my new planner, hope yours fits in well too. x

  5. A perfect word for you, and as I was reading this post I could virtually hear you smiling as you were writing it!
    I do like a bit of old skool pen & paper myself, I still can’t be without my paper diary or my wall chart organiser! And long may it continue!
    Thanks for the lovely linky, as always
