My Word of the Week
This week has been a good week for me and two of my children. I think Winner sums it up because I feel like we are winning at some things in life for a change.
First there was the call from Boo’s teacher. He phoned me about 4pm after school one day. He was really nice and explained that he was really happy with Boo’s progress in her music classes. She is learning to play the guitar and has done really well. Her teacher said she is the best in his class and she is to receive a special certificate today for being Student of the Week. She is a winner to me.
Then it was the Little Man’s parent evening. School has been a bit hit and miss for the Little Man and he didn’t go for six months last year after we took him out of his old school and taught him at home for a while. He started his new school last October and has settled really well. He is behaving himself and getting on with the other children. But the biggest result is how good he is at his work. The teacher showed us a piece of his writing which is outstanding and he said he’s flying up the levels in maths. I could have burst with pride. He is a winner too.
Finally, it’s been the Cheltenham festival this week and as you may or may not know, I do enjoy some matched betting. I’ve had to spend about an hour and a half a day placing bets and matching them, so I won’t lie that it’s been easy. It all works on the best offers you can get and how to match them for the best results. I actually enjoy watching the horses race too. It takes me back to my childhood when my Nan enjoyed watching the horse racing on television on Saturday afternoons. Us kids would pick a horse before each race and see how many winners we could choose. There was no money involved then, it was just for fun. I really hate to see a horse fall at the hurdles though, and wait for the commentator to say that they are ok.
So, now it’s over to you. What word or phrase sums up your week?
(Some people have been having trouble displaying my badge, It’s nice if you can, but don’t worry if it won’t work. I’m sure it’s down to the WordPress changes. I’ve tried different codes with no luck. I’ve started copying badge images and linking them to the blog. Or a simple text link is fine. I’m sure it will all work out eventually.)
