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 wasn’t well the weekend which sort of put me out of sorts for a while. It’s hard keeping track of time when the kids are not at school, and when you lose a weekend because of illness it makes it even worse. Which is why I was convinced that Monday was actually Saturday!
I managed to get out of the house on Monday by driving to see my brother. I actually drove the car for the first time in six months. On Tuesday we had to go to the hospital with Star for her results from the geneticist. I’m still trying to process that news.
Wednesday we went shopping for Easter eggs and a few other bits from Morrisons. It was like a game of hunt the Easter Bunny as Boo and Eldest daughter kept running off around the huge store buying stuff.
But Thursday was the highlight of the week as Boo and the Little Man finally had their hair cut. Boo had been counting the days and was so excited. The Little Man not so excited but willing to go along so that was good as his hair was so long we were getting to the stage of tying it up in a pony tail. Star refused to have her hair cut but that was no surprise. I decided to go for the chop myself as my hair was getting way too long.
So, the photo above is the before shot, and now I guess you want to see the results?
Boo actually had about four inches chopped off which means her hair will be much easier to wash and brush. Two things she hates doing, so if it will help then it’s all good.
The Little Man had loads chopped off. He doesn’t look too happy but that’s because he didn’t want his photo taken, he was happy with his hair. He refused to have the sides shaved, he hates the vibration on his head. But at least it’s short and manageable again. His fringe looks a little crazy here but it’s nice when it’s combed. I couldn’t help remembering his first haircut and how blonde he used to be.
I’m not ready to show off my hair yet, it might be shorter but I’ve not had it coloured yet and well, my roots need a lot of attention!
Now it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week?
