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 calm 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

MY WORD OF THE WEEK – Calm
This week has brought a strange calm about the household. The homeschooling is going well and the kids are doing their work with just the minimum encouragement from me. The girls get an e-mail every day telling them what to do, and I get a School Ping for the Little Man. The girls are mainly getting on with it themselves but the Little Man needs a little more encouragement. I’m not stressing about it too much and it has become part of the new routine rather than a pain.
If you’ve got kids at home I wrote a post about the lovely free stories available on Sooper Books the other day, do take a look if you have bored little ones.
We are also coping with being cooped up. The weather has changed and no-one has been out much. I do hope it turns around again soon because we need our outside time and vitamin D intake.
The calm has come from the quiet of the colder days. No screaming kids in the garden or blasting music, no neighbours arguing with the windows open wide. It’s really quiet. It’s really calm. And I like it.
With this calm all around it’s made me feel calm. Yes, there are still tensions in the home, but we are dealing with them quickly and returning to peace.
The news around the world isn’t so good, it’s all so very depressing, so I look for the good things. I’m not a meme or joke type of person, but there are still good stories and things that make me smile. We all need to smile, no matter how grim everything is.
I’m sick of fighting, there has been so many tensions for years now, in politics and world issues. People have fallen out all over. But for now, I am staying calm. I am not going out. The messages are mixed, the population are not understanding, there is confusing information, shared mis-information. It’s all too much. I don’t want to switch off and ignore what’s going on. I need to know the main points of the news. But after that I’m switching off.
I’m taking a deep breath
I’m staying calm
