Word of the Week 6/11/15

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:


Last Friday saw us visiting Thomasland, all decorated in a Halloween theme to watch their Fireworks Spectacular. The kids loved it! They then enjoyed pumpkin carving with their dad on Saturday, and watching Strictly Come Dancing’s Halloween show – they do love to dance about to that programme! Since the weekend, there have of course been fireworks going off every evening, culminating in us watching plenty of them last night. I am sure there’ll be more to come this weekend, too.

I’ve been doing a little Christmas shopping and Boo and I have popped and bought our Christmas crackers, as she was keen to choose some. Blog-wise, things are all about Christmas. Amongst other things this week, I’ve had Christmas cards and wrap arrive, a beautiful Christmas star decoration (which you can win if you pop over to yesterday’s post), I’ve been planning a new Christmas tradition for a post next week, and I’ve had plenty of stationery arriving for my upcoming Ultimate Stationery Gift Guide.

So a week with Halloween, Bonfire Night and Christmas, ‘seasonal’ seems to cover it best.

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

Please grab the badge, link up and share.

  1. Lovely word for your week!
    Halloween at Thomas Land sounded great. I thought of you and Boo when I walked past the Smiggle stationery shop and saw that they do an advent calendar, it looked fab.
    Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for hosting x

  2. Seasonal sounds like the perfect word for your week with the focus on three different seasonal events all in one week. Love the sound of Halloween at Thomasland. We loved the Halloween Strictly show as well – although it was constantly interrupted by trick-or-treaters! Sounds like you are a lot more organised that I am on the Christmas front – I’ve yet to start really thinking about it. Maybe next week! Hope you have a lovely weekend and thank you for hosting #WotW 🙂

    1. We had no trick or treaters, much to Boo’s disappointment! We never do. Ah, it’s the blog stuff all rolling in making me think about it! x

  3. I refuse to think about Christmas until December! But then I don’t have to entertain and organise for little ones anymore so I can stick my head in the sand for a lot longer than most!

  5. Hi Jocelyn, it sounds as if your two have had a wonderfully fun week with Halloween and fireworks.I can’t believe the speed in which everything Christmasy has appeared, but it will be upon us before you know it. Time to get the ‘snow’ falling on the blog!

    Thank you for hosting.


    1. They’ve loved it! They are eager to see more fireworks out the window tonight, too! It’s flying by, Christmas in no time..! x

  6. Great word choice. I love the fact your little ones went to Thomasland and saw the fireworks. My daughter isn’t keen on noise from a hair dryer so I was worried about fireworks. Fortunately, the only ones she saw were on tv and she was more intrigued than scared.

    1. They loved it, though this was their first display as they’ve not been keen on loud noises either. Watching out of the window suits them just fine!

  7. It’s a lovely word because it’s a lovely time of the year, lots of traditions and lots to look forward to. I do like this time of year, there’s something cozy about it, and I also know the annual school Xmas shows are just around the corner. Always priceless!
    Have a lovely week xx

  8. Seasonal is a great word. Although I hate the weather this time of year I do love all the things that happen. The boys love Halloween and dressing up, they’ve had a great time watching fireworks, and before long we’ll be writing letters to Santa! 🙂

  9. As I type this there is a Christmas advert on! it has hit us, boom. I love Christmas but with all that has been going on I was just not ready for it, you sound quite organised over there x

  10. My two would love Thomas Land! They also love dancing around to Strictly too – whenever the scores are announced G always shouts “8!” and if they get anything less than an 8 she will get quite angry and say “Noooooo! 8! 8! 8!”

    Thanks for hosting #Wotw xxx
