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 word this week is blurred 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 boardfollow

MY WORD OF THE WEEK – Blurred
Everything this week has seem blurred. We are all in the same boat where one day seems just the same as any other, but sometimes the edges seem to get even blurrier.
I can’t believe it’s Friday today, it seems like I only just published last weeks Word of the Week! How can time go so quickly when you are not having fun!
This week has been blurred because of a shopping mix up. Last week I couldn’t get a slot at my usual supermarket until Thursday, but we shop on Mondays so we needed food. So, I found a slot at a different supermarket and we ended up with two shops, both expensive and the food planning went to pot.
Then I went to do my food shopping for this week and because I’d not had my shopping until Thursday I had to wait seven days until I could order again…arrgh! I didn’t want to do the same as last week so I ordered a basics food box and we made do with what we had. The main shopping comes today and boy we have nothing left, we are even out of coffee! (We do have tea bags though!) I have done a full weeks shop though, so now I’m going to change my shopping day to Friday. I bet that causes confusion for a while.
Apart from the food, I’ve been feeling each day blurring into the next. Our routine has slipped. The kids are getting lazier and don’t want to get dressed in the morning. What’s the point if they are not going out? I’ve let them get away with it providing they did their school work, and then got dressed after lunch. But I want that routine back again. They don’t get dressed until lunch times on the weekend if we are not going out, I want weekdays to feel different.
We have been keeping up with the school work but even that’s becoming a blur. Primary learning day after day is quite frankly boring. Now I know I couldn’t have ever been a teacher even though it was an idea once upon a time. I have to admit though, I’m pretty sure that some of the maths my Little Man has to do, I didn’t have to do in primary school. I’ll be getting him to do my accounts soon.
The teacher’s call regularly and it’s become a blur as to who’s teacher I’m speaking too. I’m easily confused, I can’t even remember my own kid’s names how am I supposed to remember their teachers? Apparently, Star is now in Year 11 despite not finishing year 10. She may or may not get to see her teacher before the Summer break. The Little Man may or may not be going back to school before the Summer break, but his poor teacher was in tears when she rang me and we talked about it. She thinks it’s too soon and is having to take her baby girl back to nursery so she can return. As for Boo, well, no-one knows if she’ll be going back but her trip to France has been cancelled. We expected that.
So life is just a bit blurry right now and everything is just so not clear. We don’t know what we are supposed to be doing, working, not working, going out, not going out, going to school, not going to school. I don’t like uncertainty and I’ll be happy when we can see clearly again.
Now it’s your turn, what word or phrase sums up your week this week?

Sometimes you just want someone else to step in and get everything back to being organised and normal for you don’t you? I know exactly what you mean, the weeks seem to be disappearing despite very little happening. I’ve not lost track of the days exactly because of blogging schedules and things, but there’s certainly little way of recognising the difference between a week day and the weekend anymore. Life will be very strange when we have to adjust back to a routine eventually, but I’m sure we’ll all do just fine! #wotw
I can understand the sense of blur. Weeks seem to vary between nothing happening and then the next week something sparks it up. I call it a win if all the work gets done. Middle Teen was talking about being referred to as a year 11 now too. Talked to her tutor and they are working on getting her year group in. She should be striding across Exmoor at the moment. It would have been a good weekend for it. Trip to France cancelled here too. I always got the impression that the primary maths was the same topics just using a different method than we were taught. I was always cautious about teaching them my method and confusing matters. Hope you have a good weekend and the shopping is all sorted out now.
I totally get what you mean, each day does blur into another but it is a good think that the weeks are flying over.
Oh no! That is rubbish about the shopping mix up. Have you tried a delivery from Iceland if you get stuck to tide you over. They are releasing theirs at 11am each weekday and I went on today and actually had a choice of days and times.
My two are getting lazier too. We’re sleeping later as time goes on and they don’t want to get dressed but they haven’t been too bad with their school work. The maths work is crazy isn’t it. I don’t understand half of what my youngest does. I hope Star gets to see her teacher before the summer break. Year 11 is a big year. Eek! Aww! That poor teacher who rang you. I really do feel for those being forced back to work.
Hang on in there. It’s half term soon x

What a mix up with the food shopping! Glad you could get on a regular weekly schedule, though. It must be tough shoppinf for your big family during this crisis.
The days do blur one into the other, don’t they? Hubby and I decided to get some take-out sushi – our first take out meal since the shutdown. We thought we would wait until the weekend to make it more special, but weekdays are just like weekends now, so why wait?

Life does feel very blurred at the moment, and it’s easy for one day to slip into the next and forget what day we are on. We’re finding our routine has slipped a lot too although we try and get school work done by 3pm each day. The change in days with the food shopping sounds stressful – hopefully switching your day to Friday will help with that. It all seems very up in the air at the moment with the plans to go back to school – I am considering continuing to home school Sophie until September if that is an option, but it’s not an easy decision for anyone and I can imagine it must be hard for Little Man’s teacher too. #WotW
Running out of coffee is a nightmare!! Glad you were finally able to get your deliveries straightened out. I understand the blur of life right now. Although, for me, it is just like reliving the same week and schedule over and over. My husband is still going to work Monday-Friday. The only real difference is that we have nowhere to go on the weekends. It’s very long and boring version of Groundhog’s Day!
