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. The idea of the linky is to reflect back on your past week and share it with us. It’s great if you can sum it up in a word or phrase, hence giving us your Word of the Week. My word this week is poorly and you can read more about that below.
I’m not totally strict on using just a word or phrase but please try to stick to the theme of summing up your week.
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. 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 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
Word of the Week is open from 6am on Friday Morning to 12 noon on Monday. Plenty of time to join in!
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
Me being poorly is nothing new. I went to the GP on Monday to get some test results and guess what? They were not labelled correctly and so haven’t been done! So now I’ve had to have new ones sent off and I need the result before my hospital treatment on Monday. Fat chance of that. Maybe I can get a Dr to see me there?
The kids have been back to school just a few days and already they are bringing home the bugs. The Little Man was first, then Graham got sick. Both Boo and Star were feeling unwell, and finally I had to let Star have the day off on Thursday as she was so poorly.
We also had to take our poor cat to the Vet on Wednesday as she has been suffering with a problem around her tail. We had no idea what was wrong. It turns out that she has a skin infection and the Vet gave her a steroid injection which should help. We also picked up some prescribed flea treatments as the ones we are using don’t seem to be doing their job.
In other news, I did get a lovely night out with my friend on Wednesday. We went to see Matthew Bournes Romeo + Juliet. It was truly stunning and very original. You can see my review here if you wish.
Now it’s your turn, what word or phrase sums up your week this week?

Sorry to hear you haven’t been well, Anne, but you are always great! Glad to hear you enjoy Romeo and Juliet … I can never hear that name without thinking of that Dire Strait’s song, one of my all-time faves! #WotW
Ah, I think I must have listened to Dire Straits Romeo and Juliet a million times until my LP was scratched. Actually, Dire Straits and Sade where my first ever CDs when the CD collection in the music shop was minute!
Sorry you’ve not been feeling well. Hope you have a better week next week! Romeo and Juliet looks really good! I’ve never considered going to a ballet, I’ve been wanting to go to an opera for some time, maybe I should seek out a ballet too.
Sorry to hear that everyone has been poorly this week and the back-to-school bugs have hit already. Hope you are all feeling better over the weekend and that all goes well with your hospital treatment on Monday. Romeo + Juliet sounded like an amazing production and such an interesting take on it. Thanks for hosting #WotW
The bugs are starting to lift now. I may not have my treatment Monday, it’s a juggle as to whether it will make me worse or better at the moment. Romeo + Juliet was truly stunning and I’m still singing the Dance of the Knights (it doesn’t help with all the adverts for the Apprentice starting soon!) 🙂
Sorry to hear you are poorly Anne, it’s so frustrating when things go wrong with tests and results especially when you need them for a specific date. I hope you get to see someone who can help at the hospital next week. Mine have been back just over a week and have already brought colds and coughs home, don’t you just love this time of year! I hope you are all feeling better soon, including your poor cat x
I think I could write a blog post ranting about school policies on attendence and making kids go in when they are sick. It really annoys me that my normally well children get sick as soon as they go back to school. The cat’s feeling better already x
So sorry to read your work of the week is “poorly”. I hope your test results get straightened out. You would think your GP would bend over backward to get those test results to you since they were the ones to make the mistake.
I remember when I was a teacher, I would always get the bugs the kids would pass around, especially at the beginning of the new school year. Hope your children feel better soon!
Aw no I can’t believe they didn’t sent the tests off, what a rough week you have had, I hope you are all feeling better. I hope its all ok and the results are in for your appointment, and I hope the cat is better soon. I bet Romeo and Juliet was amazing xx
Oh no! What a pain in the bum about the mess up with your GP.
I hope the kids and Graham are all feeling better soon. They really didn’t hang around bringing the bugs home. I hope your cat is better soon too. x
Oh hon that’s awful. Sorry to hear they have been so careless. I hope you get them soon in time for your appointment. Hugs x
