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 cold 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.
Since adding this link up party to a directory I’ve noticed a lot of posts, in particular, recipe posts, that do not fit in with the theme of this linky. I have made the decision to remove these posts from further link ups. So please don’t link up anything unless it includes a summary of your week or events in your life. Thank you for your understanding
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 – Cold
After all the rain last week, this week we’ve definitely had a drop in temperature and it is so cold.
Last Friday I left the house to go to The Little Man’s assembly and it was so good. They did a story that had been written by one of the children in the class and it was all about being different and trying to fit in. It was a perfect end for anti bullying week and for Children In Need as all the children were dressed in their spots.
I got a bit crafty and got one of the girls old blue sweatshirts and coverd the motif in the middle with a big yellow circle, which I then added random coloured spots which I’d cut out of some old clothes that had not made the charity shop bag. Recycling at it’s best. Sadly the Little Man was the only one in a home-made spotty top.
Back to being cold. I’ve not been out this week again. I’ve been sitting here with my blanket, my laptop and the cats to keep me warm. I get fed up of being stuck at home but sometimes I’m glad I don’t go out in the cold. I’ve certainly had my fill of scraping ice off the car in the past. And stamping my feet in the school playground to keep the feeling while waiting in the cold for the kids to come out of their classrooms. Yes, I miss not being able to do this, but there is only the Little Man That I’ve missed out on, and I didn’t get sick until he was in year two, so I was there for the early years.
I’ve been thinking of getting a bigger warmer coat, but I do have a nice one it’s just that when I’m in my wheelchair it splits apart at the knees. I’m just going to have to give in and try a blanket on my chair if I’m going to be outside.
I guess it would be nice to go into town and have a nosey around the Christmas markets. not so easy in a wheelchair, but at least I could get a feel of Christmas. And a hot chocolate and German sausage sounds nice. And so long as I wrapped up warm against the cold, it could be fun.
What word or phrase sums up your week this week? And how do you keep warm?

The temperature has certainly dropped this week – it’s been so cold! Glad you got to see Little Man’s assembly and love how you made his spotty top. Sophie’s school was easy for Children in Need – they went in in pyjamas but a home-made spotty top would have been fairly simple too. Having a blanket when you’re out and about sounds like a good plan – I can see the difficult with trying to keep your legs and knees warm with a coat – and hope you do manage to get out to the Christmas markets too. Thanks for hosting #WotW and hope you have a good weekend x
I think pj’s would have been easier. I’m glad I made some effort though. The older kids are trying to get me to go to the market tomorrow but it’s going to be wet, which is worse than being cold when in a wheelchair. x
Oh it does make me sad that your little one was the only one in anything home made. I understand that life with children can be very hectic and all, but everything is done out of convenience now really isn’t it? When I was at school everything was handmade and I loved it.
I think that the Christmas markets sound like a brilliant idea! Going in with a bit of patience and expecting it to be busy is my approach. If you’re not in a rush to get through it makes it more enjoyable. Could you even go during a week day when the crowds will likely be smaller? …I just got hungry thinking about all the Christmas market food, and it’s only 8 in the morning!
I’m thinking of a week day for sure, and I know I won’t get to see much but as long as I get my sausage and hot chocolate I’ll be fine. x
I think the costume you made for your little guy sounds wonderful – creative and fun. I haven’t done crafts in a while, but you have inspired me to give them another try. I have an idea of something I might make for Christmas presents. I’m sitting here wrapped up in a blanket with my laptop too! Ugh! I don’t like the cold.
I crocheted a lot of scarves for last Christmas, but this year I was a little too late. I have made a couple of Christmas cards with crochet on them and I’ve made my great nephew a gorgeous Santa style hoodie which I can wait to give him. x
Aww! The assembly sounds lovely.
It has been cold hasn’t it. It’s going to get colder too before spring arrives. Eek!
You should try a blanket when you are in your wheelchair. Getting out and about in the run up to Christmas would be fab. x
Yes, I do love to see all the trees, lights and decorations so I’ll have to go out at some point. They have a local Christmas fayre next weekend so if I don’t make it into town I’ll go there instead. x
It’s been wet rather than cold here, and rather grim. Still, December and Christmas on the way! #WOTW
