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 Sunshine and Rainbows 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

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 – Sunshine and Rainbows
Here’s the rainbow, you may have already seen it on my Sunday Photo, but I’m thinking of making another today.
Hasn’t the weather been lovely, quite typical when we are in a lockdown that the sun should shine. I’m not complaining though, at least we have a garden. I sat out in the garden on Wednesday for an hour doing my crochet and listening to my e-book while soaking up the sunshine. It was so warm.
I’m writing this on Thursday and we are currently preparing to have a BBQ for dinner seeing as it’s such a lovely day. We’ll be eating al fresco. I ordered some stuff in the shopping delivery and we ended up with a few substitutions…. most things were substituted for burgers and sausages, we now have 60 sausages and 48 beef burgers…I know we are a big family but that’s a bit much. We also have some chicken drumsticks, salad and corn on the cob.
We are still plodding on with schooling at home. The kids are not over keen but I’ve found keeping to a routine has helped.
My kids are not the type to be wanting to be playing out in the sunshine, and it’s hard work to get them out there. I hear the neighbours kids outside all the time, but my three would rather spend their ‘non-screen’ time with their noses stuck in a book. (Apart from the little man.)
We’ve been playing some games and I spent some time playing Mancala with Boo the other day. I haven’t played for a while but it’s one of those simple games that are fun and easy. I’ve had my set over 16 years now!
We also love our Gamely Games, like The Pretender and Jibbergiggle. If you go to the Gamely Games Facebook page you can nominate someone with a lockdown birthday to receive a free game! They also went around their neighbourhood delivering free games to people who had a rainbow in their window. How lovely is that!
Sometimes, it’s okay to forget about lessons and play games instead isn’t it? Especially if it makes you smile. Sunshine and rainbows are what have made me smile this week.
Star decided she wanted to make a fruit salad. She did well, just look at this rainbow of deliciousness.
Now it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week?
