Word of the Week – 22/8/14

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:


How can I complain about that?! I have spent a lot of time this past week cuddling with my children. Boo has been under the weather for a few days, and when she’s unwell, she asks for lots of cuddles. She’s not an overly cuddly child, unlike Little Man, so it’s nice to feel needed sometimes! It’s meant I’ve not got much done other than cuddling for two or three days, but then what could be more important? As Boo’s been unwell, we’ve been lazing around at home more than we normally do, watching films and reading stories, and all seem to require the three of us snuggling up and cuddling under a blanket. If you read my #WotW post last week, you’ll appreciate why buying Little Man his very own Animal has resulted in heaps of cuddling, as he has barely let him go since he had him at the weekend, clutching him to him, cuddling him and doing his own little impressions of him! And I’ve also been enjoying those morning cuddles, when the kids clamber into our bed at 6ish, before we all get up just before 7. I’m very aware that with Boo about to start school in a little over a week’s time, that these lazy, cuddly mornings are drawing to a close, so I’m savouring every single one of them until then.

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

  1. Cuddles – what a beautiful word for your week. So nice sometimes to just sit together and snuggle up – precious moments. Hope Boo is now feeling better x

  2. Lovely word cuddles! Cuddles are the best but of course not great when little ones are unwell.

    I’ve liked up for the first time this week but due to an accidental click, while doing this on my phone (with my little one in my lap) I’ve ended up with a Facebook icon as my image. Sorry about that!!

  3. Sorry that Boo has been feeling under the weather, but what a lovely word for your week 🙂 My 5yo still likes cuddles and that’s just so wonderful. The wee girl will if she’s upset. The 8yo rarely! Enjoy your lazy mornings while you can x

    1. No, I’m not looking forward to Boo starting. I guess I’ll just have to get used to it when the time comes x

  5. What a great word of the week and one to savour. There is nothing better than early morning cuddles,that time when you’re all warm and snuggley. Although you may be doing the school run soon there are always weekends where you can catch up your morning cuddles!

  6. It is sort of nice when children are feeling under the weather and need some TLC. Cuddling up on the sofa together may not get things done, but those times are priceless as there will come a time when the sofa will no longer be large enough and the children no longer want to cuddle up.

    I find myself walking up to my children and demanding a cuddle, which is so uncool whne your children are teenagers!…Love it!

    Hope Boo is feeling better soon and enjoys school next week!

  8. What a lovely word! Nothing like cuddles to cheer you from even the most miserable of days. My daughter invented the word ‘huggles’ (cross between hugs and cuddles) which always makes me smile.

  9. Cuddles are lovely. I remember my first son only really cuddled up when little when he was poorly. Different now – he is a teenager and loves a cuddle which I am very impressed by and long may it last. Cuddles mean memories too and very special ones at that
    I did not add the button thing by mistake but I will tomorrow. Nice to be back

    1. I like the idea that they may get more cuddly with time. My son loves cuddles, but my daughter’s less interested! Lovely to have you back 🙂
