Word of the Week 27/2/15

Hello and welcome to Word of the Week! Thanks to those of you that linked you last week, and being so patient with my blog playing up, it was lovely reading all of your posts. It’s a pleasure to have you all here.

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:


Oh yes, it’s been all about this, this week, and it’s not something I’m especially good with!

As many of you will probably know from trying to link up last week, I had problems with my hosting last Friday into Saturday. It resulted in me upgrading the package, after too many queries and ‘live chats’ for my liking (I wanted to just spend time with Boo as she was at home), but I am hoping it will now make a difference. Time will tell, I guess.

That also happened to be the day that my phone upgrade was due, a day that I’ve been counting down to, as I explained in my post Bye, Bye, iPhone. So I’ve spent time researching new phones, finally choosing the Sony Xperia Z3, then looking for the best deal, then getting the best deal sorted and then finally getting the phone! In between the upgrade and phone’s arrival, they switched my 3G off, so I was without technology for the weekend. This bothered me initially, and then I found it rather freeing. I did miss Instagram, though! Since my phone’s arrival, I’ve been getting to grips with the change from iOS to Android, downloading new apps and transferring data. Oh, the excitement!

So technology has taken up a lot more of my thoughts and time this week than I’d normally give to it. Glad it’s not like this every week!

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

Linky opens at 6.30am Friday, to midnight on Sunday.

  1. Ooh hope you’re having fun with your new phone? I’m so tempted to get an upgrade as my iPhone 4 is slowly coming to a halt. I hear a rumour I could be inheriting the hubbies iPhone 5 though so am waiting for him to decide 🙂

  2. I had the same problem when I switched from iPhone to android, just thought the phone didn’t work anymore. Glad it’s all sorted now. I’ll be keen to hear your thoughts on the Sony as I shall be in the market for a new phone soon. Have a lovely weekend hon xx

  3. Technology is wonderful when it’s all working but if not, it’s a reminder how much we all use it, isn’t it.
    Hubbie upgraded to a Xperia M2 this week and whilst he’s taking a while to get used to it, I think it’s great, shame I’ve only just upgraded!
    Have a lovely – hopefully tech friendly- weekend x

  4. Glad you’ve got your new phone and it doesn’t take too much getting used to. It’s funny to think that a few years back we didn’t all have mobile phones and instagram and all this instant access technology. How did we manage? xx

  5. So glad you got your site sorted out again and hope that you don’t have any more problems. Good luck with getting used to your new phone. Hope you have a lovely weekend and thank you as always for hosting – lovely to link up each week 🙂

  6. What a great idea for a linky, I will now start writing a word of the week post for Saturdays to link up (glad it is open for a couple of days), it’s a brilliant way to explore words you are not familiar with etc. Thank you.

  7. Wow! Good on you. What a brave move 🙂 I was bad enough moving from Nokia to Samsung, I’ve never tried any Apple products as it’s like a whole different universe. I hope you enjoy your Sony. x

  8. I’m linking late today, but I wanted to link as you are the one who inspired my post today. I have (finally) reviewed my ‘about’ page and your advice was invaluable. You’re brilliant at sharing all your great tips and tricks. It really gave me direction to have your list, and when I realised my ‘about page’ would be way too long, I wrote the post linked. Thank you thank you. I hope I’ll see you again at BlogCamp in April. Really looking forward to it!

    Technology is great when it works flawlessly. When it starts playing up, it’s just a nightmare. The only reason I always get iphones is to avoid just that. You are one brave lady! I have to get a new laptop as mine is slowly dying, and I am dreading it!

    1. Oh, so lovely of you to say, and glad that I could help. Yes, I’ll be there at BlogCamp so will look forward to seeing you again x

  9. It’s when technology fails us that we realise just how much we depend and have become attached to it isn’t it?
    Glad you’ve got things sorted and thanks v much for hosting x

  10. That new phone looks awesome! I can seriously understand the temptation of the amazing camera, and as for being waterproof – I didn’t even know they’d done that to phones yet! I am starting to find my iPhone annoyingly clunky with some things, but I have been totally suckered in to Apple-world. I think it would take quite a lot for me to take the leap, but you’ve definitely given me food for thought… x

      It was very freeing, might have to do that regularly now…if I can bare to be parted! I think I’m there now, and I am liking it x
