Word of the Week 30/9/16

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:


Yes, I have been feeling the change in the seasons this week.

I’ve had a few days where I’ve actually felt a bit chilly – I’m normally really warm and wearing flip flops long after everyone else has switched to boots, so I know the season is changing! I’ve been noticing the beautiful colours in my garden and as I walk around, I do love the warm colours of autumn. And I’ve got the fairy lights on and candle burning in the living room every night now, as I snuggle under a throw, all sure signs of autumn in my home.

I have also been enjoying the shift in TV shows this week as some of my favourites return. The telly is always better after summertime, isn’t it? Strictly Come Dancing, Travel Man and Gogglebox are all back, so I have something to enjoy whilst I’m snuggled up of an evening.

It’s also my girl’s 7th birthday this coming week which always heralds a change in seasons to me, and as soon as that’s over, I do tend to start looking towards Christmas. No sooner am I in autumn than I am thinking winter!

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. It really is starting to feel properly like autumn now isn’t it? I’ve definitely noticed the changes this week. I love autumn, closing the curtains that wee bit earlier and lighting the candles, that’s my favourite! Have a great weekend lovely x

  2. I am usually the same regarding flip flops but I’ve packed them away in favour of boots now, I do love this time of year I really like the crisp freshness in the morning air on the school run. Hope you little girl has a lovely birthday x #WotW

  3. It definitely feels like summer is gone. Still wore sandals to the school run a few days ago, but felt the chill! I’m dusting off my boots now … reluctantly that is. Like you, I’d rather wear flip-flops 🙁 #wotw

  5. ARGH! we have the same word! is that allowed? I’ll change mine if it isn’t!
    Anyway, hope you girl has a lovely birthday.
    Christmas will soon be here.. 😉

  6. I do love Autumn 🙂 I’ve noticed a chill though, we leave our patio doors open in the morning to freshen up the house and the heating came on, it’s not set to turn on unless the house gets to less than 11 degrees! Thanks for hosting x

  7. I love all the autumn colours too. And when the nights go all cosy with the candles on (theyre on all year but they give out that lovely glow when its dark!) thanks for hosting #wotw

  8. It is so true there’s definitely been a chill in the air and autumn is upon us. Hope your daughter has a lovely birthday. Thanks for hosting #WotW
