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 phrase this week is teacher 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

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 – Teacher
Once upon a time, many years ago I had this brilliant idea that I wanted to be a teacher! It was the main reason why I started studying again as an adult, but I did change my mind in the end. When my own children got older I decided that working with children all day was probably not my ‘thing.’
Now, in these difficult days I find myself in the role of teacher to my own kids. Stuck at home, schools closed for no-one knows how long, and piles an piles of work being sent from school for the kids to get through every day.
I’ve home educated my kids before, three of them at some point but all at different times. That wasn’t easy, having all three with different levels of work is even harder.
The girls are being good as they have to submit their work online to their teachers. So, they don’t need much input from me other than to tell them to get on with it. Sometimes they are willing, sometimes they are not.
The Little Man wants to do P.E. everyday on the trampoline and swings in the garden. That’s great, but he has fallen behind the hundreds of School Pings I’ve been receiving. He has a maths lesson each day to do which he’s getting on with, but everything else, it’s a pain to get him interested.
We are currently doing 2 hours in the morning and 1 hour in the afternoon and I’m hoping that’s enough to get through the weekly work pile. If they fall behind then I’ve told them they will be working through the Easter Holiday too.
I think we are doing okay, but I’m honestly not finding any of this fun. How are all the other parents coping?
Now it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week this week?
