Word of the Week – 15/8/14

Thank you so much for continuing to share and to link up, I do appreciate and enjoy reading every single WotW post.

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. I comment on and tweet out every post, and it’s a friendly place, so come join in! All that I ask is that if you link up, you link back to me, and visit as many of the other blogs as you can and comment on their words.

My word of the week this week is:


As in the crazy red drumming one in The Muppets! Oh my, the kids have watched The Muppets film so many times this week. I don’t mind at all, as I like it, too, and I particularly enjoy the song ‘Man or Muppet’! More importantly, it holds Little Man’s attention for quite some time, which no feature length film has ever managed to do before – hurrah! I’ve actually managed to get dinner cooked without him haranguing me in the kitchen, thanks to Kermit and friends. And Animal, well, Little Man has a clear penchant for him, and I just love the way he says it, doing his impression of him at the same time – I should have vlogged it, shouldn’t I, as I cannot describe it! You’ll have to take my word for it that it’s cute! And, there is another reason for this word, and that is that we were invited along to the National Forest Adventure Farm yesterday, so spent the day enjoying the animals and plenty more besides, and you can read all about our day out thereΒ tomorrow. The day culminated in us returning home with two exhausted but happy children, who then watched The Muppets, of course….!

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. Fab word…..I don’t like The Muppets….Eek! I always think frogs legs and bacon sandwiches seem rather appealing when I think of them….hehehe
    Glad your little man is enjoying it though x

    1. Oh yes, I do know! The Muppets aren’t sinister, though, surely?! It’s so cute when he says it πŸ™‚ x

  2. Sounds like he’s a good judge of character – Animal was always my favourite too – so much fun! You should video it even if it’s not to share – just to look back on when you’re having a tough day with him to make you smile! Sorry for linking up so late! x

  3. I love animal πŸ™‚ it sounds like you must live super close to where I lived in the UK. I lived in Castle Donington, but I worked in Coalville. My word would be owwwwie…knitting gives me (I think) carpal tunnel and the changing weather hasn’t helped this week!

  5. I’ve not watched the Muppets for years, my children weren’t taken by them when I introduced them to the Muppets when they were younger. I remember the crazy drummer Animal, but my favourite characters were the two that sat in the audience box and shouted abuse from the side… I can’t remember their names though!

    It is handy when the children are into a film, especially one you enjoy too as it’s a nice excuse for some wind down time and what better time than after a busy day out!

    Thank you for hosting #WotW.

    1. Ah, you mean Waldorf and Statler? Yep, they’re funny! It is so handy, and nothing has really interested him before, bar the odd episode of Peppa and ITNG, which don’t last as long as this!

  6. Great word! I love the muppets too, especially Animal. I love that muppet or a man song, I laughed so much when we first watched it. You have to try and capture little man’s reaction x
