Word of the Week 25/11/16

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:

preparing

Oh, in so many ways!

Firstly I have been preparing for my second Open University assignment. I have written my essay plan and started gathering the sources I want to use, and I have managed to get half of the 2000 words written in some semblance of order so far. I hope to finish it today, so wish me luck!

My daughter has also been preparing her work. She has a project on London that needs to be handed in at the end of term, so she has made a good start on that and has her plan all outlined, bless her.

I have booked in a little break for next February for myself, the Husband, my brother and his wife, so the accommodation is all sorted now, Cardiff here we come! I have also been arranging our main holiday next summer.

Then it’s Christmas prep that has been dominating here. Both my daughter and I have got all of our Christmas cards written (I’d planned for her to do a few each day but she sat and did 40+ all in one go, she loves to write!). I have done pretty much all of my Christmas shopping now and managed to wrap all but the kids presents up and we had a good old books and toy clearout over the weekend to prepare for the inevitable Christmas influx! I am now just waiting for the Christmas shopping slots to be released so I can book my food shopping in and I think I am all set. The Advent calendars are ready to arrive next week with Marty our elf and then we’ll need to get the tree and trimmings out of the loft next weekend, when we will also be going to see Santa. We are all set to just relax and enjoy it all then. That’s the plan anyway!

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

Please grab the badge, link up and share.

    Sounds like you have had a busy but productive week. I’ve spent this week preparing the house for the festive season and also organising work and blogging so I’m prepared for December. Good luck with your assignment. #WotW

    Great word – and sounds like you’ve made huge progress too. I do love a bit of planning and doing, and it’s the season really where it all comes at once isn’t it. But you’re way ahead of me – and eek, christmas cards, not started those yet let alone writing them. Love how Boo is so keen on writing too, have a lovely weekend and thanks for hosting #wotw

    That is being prepared!
    Best of luck with the OU project again & how lovely to have something to look forward to in February – something to look forward to thru the bleakness of January!
    As for Christmas preparation, well I thought I was organised until I read your post! I plan to do our card writing on 1st December with hot chocolate & kids. How impressive that Boo did 40+ in one go!
    I hope you manage to relax after all this planning!
