Word of the Week 26/8/16

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:


It’s been a full week, and it has somehow managed to perfectly balance busy with relaxed, not an easy combination. As I look back over it, buoyant springs to mind, and it also struck me as I wrote it there what an odd looking word it is, so I like it.

We kicked off the week with fun at the Just So Festival, which we all absolutely loved. We had a weekend away and then the Husband had a couple of days off this week, too. We ate out, had movie nights, shopped a little, lounged a little (which means I read a little) and enjoyed the sunshine out in the garden. I’ve also caught up with great friends, which is always lovely to do. It’s been a happy week.

On top of that, we’ve been making a few plans for some little changes around the home, and change always puts me in a good mood, I do love change. Then to make it an even better week, the Husband had a positive pay review when he returned to work, so he was pleased with that.

We even had the Great British Bake Off back this week, which I always enjoy, the icing on the cake!

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. I love weeks that go like that, everything runs smoothly and there are lots of positives. Just So looked awesome I must try and pay a visit when my two are a little older I think they would really enjoy it. #WotW

  3. I like the word buoyant too and it sounds like a very good description for your week – managing to perfectly balance busy and relaxed and stay afloat on top of it all. What a lovely week you’ve had and well done to your hubby on his positive pay review. Hope you have a lovely weekend too. Thanks for hosting #WotW 🙂

  4. I like that you’ve stayed afloat this week 🙂 I think my week has been quite similar, I’ve had quite a relaxed week and not done much (except reading) but everyone around me has managed to get a lot done.

  5. What a great week, and a lovely surprise about Hubby’s pay review – ties in nicely to the little changes you have planned for around the home *winks!*
    It is difficult to balance busy with relaxation sometimes but sounds like you managed it beautifully.
    Thanks for the linky & Have a good week

    1. It absolutely does, and some of it may have already been spent! It has worked this week, it’s been a good one, thanks x
