Word of the Week 3/4/15

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:


Hooray! This is because we’ve been on holiday!

We’ve been away in Somerset for most of the week, not far from Minehead. We’ve explored the area, visited the seaside and built sandcastles, been to the beautiful Dunster Castle, ate out in plenty of restaurants, had fun at Diggerland, and generally just enjoyed being together for a few days. It’s been lovely.

The last time we were away for a few days was last July, and I’ve really noticed the difference in the children, especially Little Man this time round, and how much more grown up he is, making everything that bit easier whilst we’re away. No need for travel cots and high chairs, so we were travelling light, and less need for naps and the pushchair. The only problem we did have is that the kids haven’t slept too well as it’s been really windy and caravans aren’t great in the wind! In fact, ‘windy’ could have been my WotW, too! Oh well, it just wouldn’t be a family holiday without the Husband and I needing another holiday!

I’m sure to share more with you soon, and I hope you all have a lovely long weekend.

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

  1. Sounds like it has been a lovely week for you (apart from the kids not sleeping so well) with lots of holiday fun. Glad you are enjoying the Easter holidays – must be so much easier without the need for highchairs and travel cots. Thanks for hosting #WotW and hope you have a great weekend 🙂

  2. Wind apart (and hasn’t it been windy!?) it sounds like you’ve had a great time. I’m not sure I’d fancy a caravan in the wind either – have a fab Easter and thanks for hosting x

  3. Sounds like you had a lovely holiday 🙂 It is nice not to have to take quite so much stuff with you isn’t it! Enjoy the rest of your Easter break 🙂

  4. It sounds like you all had fun, regardless of the weather, and it is nice when you don’t have to be restricted by pushchairs, high chairs and the other baby contraptions isn’t it? We’re just entering that phase, too!
    Welcome back and glad you enjoy your time away. Thnx for the lovely linky as always xx

  5. Oh enjoy Somerset! We were supposed to go away to Brighton, but the husband is just way too busy. So I’m afraid Little T and I are homebound, though we did manage to watch Cinderella at the cinema yesterday 😉 x #wotw.

  6. Hi Jocelyn, good to hear you enjoyed your holiday despite the weather. Sleeping in a caravan when it’s windy out must have been a noisy experience, it’s bad enough indoors when the winds high.

    Thank you for hosting #WotW!

  7. Isn’t going away with children fun! I have never packed so much stuff like we did when we went away at the beginning of the month. It sounds like you have had a good time and enjoyed the family time even with the wind. I hope you can recover now you are at home ;0) x
