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
Word of the Week is open from 6am on Friday Morning to 12 noon on Monday. Plenty of time to join in!
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 – 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?
