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 playing games 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 – Playing Games
It’s been a bit of a weird week this week. Does anyone else think time is flying by in lock down, or is it going slow for you? It was a bit of shock to think that we have been stuck at home longer than the entire school Summer holiday already.
This week I decided to treat my kids to some time playing games. The Little Man had a game, Scrap Mechanic, on his laptop and the girls had, My Hero, Justice Two (or something like that) on the Switch. I also decided to revisit a game myself and I’ve been playing The Sims. The eldest two have been playing some prison escape game and Graham has been playing Uncharted Four.
They are all very different games so it’s been a whole week of computer gaming and maybe that’s why it’s gone so fast. Time flies when you are gaming that’s for sure.
Of course we have still been home educating too, but we get an extra day off today, Yay! The Little Man is still working the hardest, but that’s probably because he has to do all his work under my supervision. I’m trusting the girls to work independently.
Other than that we’ve had a couple of nice days and managed to get in the garden for a little while. We picked some dandelions from the garden last weekend and made some cookies with the petals. They were delicious but the kids were not keen to try them because they had flowers in them. I tried to explain that sugar and flour comes from plants too, but they still only had a nibble. I have strange kids!
That’s all from me this week, let me know what word or phrase sums up your word this week?
