MY WORD OF THE WEEK – Plans
Last week I chose Changes as my Word of the Week. Since then I’ve been hoping for even more changes but things don’t always go to plan do they?
My son’s birthday didn’t go to plan. It started out okay. Then we hit a few issues and our original plan had to be cancelled. I did think at one point that we were not going to get out of all but we did, and we had a good evening.
After a lovely night out we’d all got home safely and I had gone to bed. Then I seemed to hit an all time low and at 4am I was hatching a really stupid plan. Thankfully, I didn’t go ahead with it but it made me realize that things were not right.
What do I do when things get tough? I get planning. It’s what keeps me sane, planning all sorts from events to spending, to my next book or crochet project.
First up was a new savings plan. I’ve a lot of spending to do this year and my savings are pretty low, so it’s time to tighten the belts and get my finances sorted.
Then it was planning our holiday. I was trying to figure out how we could get my eldest son to come along with us. We don’t have room in the car, but a train journey would mean at least two changes and I don’t think he could handle that. I spoke about it to his Dad on the phone and he suggested that he could go and holiday with him in France instead. So I put them on the phone together and he’s talking to him about rather than taking a direct flight he could change planes. Sometimes plans just don’t come together.
I have finished my book that I was reading (or rather listening to on Audible.) It was rather a long book and I started it in December. So now I’m planning on what to read next. I like to plan my reads so I get lots of variety. This last book was long and complicated so I think maybe something a little more lighthearted. By the time you read this I’ll have probably started something.
I’ve also finished my crochet project. A lovely cardigan that my daughter bought me for Christmas. It was really nice to work on and I’m so happy with it. I now need to plan on what to make next, or maybe I’ll just pick up one of my old Wips.
Next weeks plans are preparing for my MRI (I hate them so much) and for my first visit with a mental health nurse.
Do you have any plans?
Now it’s your turn, what word or phrase sums up your week this week?

Our words this week are very similar, making plans always makes me feel better when things feel a little out of control. Sorry to hear some of your plans didn’t go smoothly but it’s good that you are taking control and making alternative plans. I hope next week goes well for you x
Oh, I so relate to what you’re saying. I love to make plans too. That’s the fun part. 🙂 Keeping them is the hard part. And those 4 a.m. plans? Mine aren’t usually the best then either, but at the moment, they seem glorious. In the light of day I realize they’re usually not good. lol.
So sorry your plans are not really the fun kind. An MRI is not something I would look forward to. Good luck this week. I will be sending good thoughts your way.

Some you win. Some you don’t. I’m sorry that not all your planning has worked out. I’m glad you made it out for your son’s birthday and maybe the holiday plans will work out in the end. Well done for finishing your crochet cardigan. Looking forward to seeing your next project. I need to finish a few WIPs. Hope your hospital trip goes smoothly and without too much stress. Thank you for hosting.
The best laid plans of mice and men as they say 🙁 sorry your’s didn’t quite work but making new ones is always a good idea. Hope your plans for next week work out a little better and good luck with your appointments x
Ah its sounds like its been a challenging week, I am so sorry your sons birthday didn’t go to plan! And sometimes the logistics of family holidays are a nightmare, but we are the same lots of saving needed this year for what we want to achieve. I am like you I am a planner x
It is nice to make plans even if they don’t always go as you hoped. Glad that you did get out for your son’s birthday in the end and had a good time and well done for finishing the crochet cardigan, what a lovely project to be working on. Hope that you manage to sort out the holiday plans so they come together somehow and wishing you all the best for your MRI this week x #WotW
