Word of the Week 7/11/14

Thank you #WotW linkers! Great to have you joining us. 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, as long as you add my #WotW badge or a link back to here. 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.

My word of the week this week is:


I struggled to come up with a word for a while this week. It’s been a full one, a busy one, where I’ve got lots done, but the over-riding theme is that it’s been ‘different’. All good ‘different’s.

Over the weekend, Christmas shopping commenced in earnest, so I’ve had parcels arriving all week, and we had a good old spend at the shops which we haven’t done in ages, and I even bought myself a few new items of clothing – very rare! Boo then had a teacher training day on Monday, so the Husband also had the day off, which was different and really lovely to get out and about together on what felt like a secret, stolen day. Tuesday night I went out – different! It was to a charity night at a friend’s house, so I managed to buy a few more gifts there and a gorgeous new Advent calendar ready for just a few weeks time. On Wednesday I went into Boo’s school for a parents workshop. This was different in two ways – firstly that I got to see my girl in her school environment which I don’t get to do every day and loved doing so, and secondly, in that my father-in-law looked after Little Man whilst I did so. They’ve not had one-on-one time like that together before, and both Grandad and Grandson seemed to very much enjoy it. And on the blog front, I’ve been pleased to have various new and exciting opportunities come my way, which always brightens the day and makes it a bit different. I do like ‘different’, keeps it all fresh!

  1. Sounds like a fab week lovely! My 5yo also had an inset day on Monday which I only found out about on Friday as had some neighbours over for Halloween. As you said it felt like a real bonus. Have a good weekend xx

  2. I’m impressed that you’ve started your Christmas shopping already! That is on my list, but just have not had time to start yet. I need to though as have to start posting to USA and other countries which tends to take ages.

  3. Different is good! Sounds like a busy but lovely week and you’re more organised than me on the Christmas shopping front – I haven’t started mine yet!

  4. Sounds like you’ve a really good week, full of lots of lovely things. Must be lovely to see your daughter in her school environment, and a bonus day off together is always a treat. Thanks for hosting! xx

  5. I think ‘different’ is a very positive work – shakes things up, challenges and refreshes. Sounds like you’ve had a lovely week, and getting a glimpse of what the little ones are doing in school is always a treat I find!
    I envy you on the Christmas shopping thing – that’s my task this weekend!
    Have a lovely weekend xx

  6. That sounds like a brilliant week 🙂 Different is often just what we need, isn’t it. Lots of new things to keep us fresh and interested. I’m impressed that you’ve started your Christmas shopping, I really must do that!

  8. Different is often just what we need in life…great word choice! I must admit I am a bit jealous with your Christmas shopping already started…I have not even thought of mine just yet, well until I read your post that is lol

    Wishing you a relaxing weekend!


  9. Different is good! And you sound like you had a lovely varied week — plus the bonus of your ‘stolen’ day!!
    I LOVE it when my boy is off work and we can go out, with the Twinkles, midweek. Always seems MUCH lovelier than on a weekend!! 🙂 Don’t get me wrong — my husband doesn’t do it very often — so on those odd occasions, when it happens, it feels like such a treat! 🙂

  10. Hi Jocelyn, I was a bit miffed that I didn’t manage to link up this weekend. It was just too busy…

    Unexpected family days out are always great and followed by a night out on your own…Bonus! Christmas will be upon us before we know it…I actually saw a Christmas tree up in someones living room on our drive home last night….I love Christmas, but even I think it’s a little early to be putting up the decorations!

    Your week was certainly filled with lots of different things going on….And congratulations on getting new blogging opportunities, not only does it keep it fresh, but exciting too.
