Word of the Week – 1/8/14

Thank you so much for continuing to share and to link up. I do love reading about everyone’s weeks!

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. 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:


It’s been a great week for seeing family. We’re lucky enough to live near to my mum and my in-laws, so we always see them weekly, which isn’t something that I take for granted, but really value it as it’s lovely for the children. My sister-in-law also pops in to see us each week, and as it’s currently school holidays, the kids are having the added excitement of their big, oh-so-patient, cousins coming along with her. In addition to this, this last week, we’ve also seen my brother and his wife and had a visit from my dad, all of whom are dearly loved by the kids (as well as myself, of course!). And as if this wasn’t enough of their favourite people in one week, my aunt and my cousin were over from Belfast for a few days, and not only do they adore their great aunt, they’d not met my cousin before, and to say she’s been a hit is an understatement – they want her here all of the time now! Mix into all of this a few play dates with friends old and new, and the children have had a very happy week, and I’ve felt very sociable!

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

  1. Great word and it sounds as if you have had a wonderful week. I would love it if our family was closer to us, 250-300 miles puts a downer on popping round for a brew! 🙂 Have a lovely weekend. x

  2. Ah it’s so lovely to have so much family around!! Me and the kids are off to Devon today with my mum and dad, sister, brother in law and nieces (hubster has to work) and I’m sooooooo looking forward to it (probably way more than they are – evil laugh!!). X

  3. Having family close by cannot be underestimated and it is lovely when the children have a special bond with grand parents. Sounds like you had a very enjoyable week. Thnx for the lovely linky xx

  4. Sounds like you’ve been having a bit of a manic week too!

    It is nice having family over to visit, especially if you have children as they love the extra attention they get. We don’t get to see family as much as I would like and have to make do with keeping up with my niece and nephew – my children’s only cousins – online for now….Thank goodness for the internet, years ago it was the very occasional phone call!

  5. What a lovely week it sounds like you had! None of my family live nearby, but it does feel like they all visit at once when they do! It makes for busy days, but is worth every ounce of upheaval – especially to see the little ones so excited to see their aunties, uncles and grandparents!
