Hello and welcome to the home of Word of the Week, 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.
There are not too many rules with this linky, just remember to read at least another couple of posts in the link up after adding your link. Do try to stick to the theme of summing your week up. I will read and comment on all posts and tweet them out for you. I also have a Pinterest board devoted to Word of the Week and I will add posts to Mix (formerly Stumble.) Please add the badge below to your post so that others may find us and join in. If you comment or tweet then please use the hashtag #WotW
If you are unfamiliar with the Word of the Week linky then please feel free to ask any questions. New linkers are always welcome, we love to hear what you have been up to in the past week.
My Word of the Week
I’ve kept to my promise that I made to myself about getting out of the house more. I’ve been out three times again this week.
Monday, I was in hospital having my IVIG treatment. I’m there for about three and a half hours, sometimes it goes quickly, sometimes not so. This week I was without an audio book so it went a little slower.
Tuesday, we had to go to the Little Man’s school to speak with the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) teacher. It is believed that the Little Man does have some kind of autism and is now on the SEND register and we are waiting for his final diagnosis. It wasn’t really a surprise, but it still brings up all sorts of feelings that are difficult to deal with. (I didn’t sleep very well on Tuesday night.) The Little Man, however, is quite happy.
Wednesday, I went out shopping. It was kind of a spur of the minute thing but I had promised to fetch a game for my eldest son and because my daughter ordered it they had refused to give it to Graham. I went along pretending to be my daughter. We also popped into Iceland for a bit of food shopping.
The rest of the week I’ve spent trying to sort out my blog. I’ve still a way to go to get it how I want but this theme allows for a lot of editing so I should be able to tweak it lots.
So, although there has been a lot of things going on this week, I am choosing the word Autism as my Word of the Week. It seems kind of strange that we found out for sure about the Little Man’s Autism on World Autism Day. It is also Autism Awareness Week (or month) and yesterday I published a post about what Autism means for our family.
So Now it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week?
