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 ‘stormy’ 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 devoted to Word of the Week and I will add posts to Mix Please add the badge below to your post so that others may find us and join in. If you comment or tweet then please use the hashtag #WotW

MY WORD OF THE WEEK – Stormy
Wow, we’ve had some fabulous stormy weather this week! Have you?
Monday was nice, it was warm and sunny and we went out. Yes, you heard that right, we left the house for the first time since early March! Not all of us, it was too much for Star who couldn’t face going out. And Boo decided to stay with her (she’s just lazy and couldn’t be bothered to get dressed!) But me, Graham and The Little Man decided to go and see my brother so we could give him his birthday cards and presents.
We arranged to meet in the car park The Little Man got to walk my brother’s dog on the grassland. It was kind of weird going out after so long. I’m glad we only encountered family.
But Monday was the last nice day we have had because it’s been rather wet and miserable since then. We have had some amazing storms. I do love thunder and lightening, providing I’m safe at home. I love watching the rain pelting down and seeing the angry black clouds flash bolts of lightening. The rumbling thunder that follows it, so loud you can feel it. The only thing I don’t like is the pressure before the storm, I always get a headache.
Now it’s Thursday and I’ve witnessed at least three storms this week with another one during the night. We’ve had so much rain the water butt should be full, but Graham has just informed me that the drain has come loose again. At least we shouldn’t get any more texts from our water company asking us to be careful with our usage. It’s done nothing but rain since the last one.
When I was little my Mum would turn off the television and open the front and back doors when there was a storm. She said it was the only way to stop the house being struck by lightening, and believed it. I would turn off our computer during a storm because we were connected by the telephone wire and if the pole was struck then who knows what damage it could do. What the chances were, I don’t know, I guess I still held a little superstition/fear from my Mum’s actions.
Have you had any good storms this week? Do they bother you?
Now, it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week this week?

It makes me so happy to here that you enjoyed a trip out Anne! We did the same on Sunday, going to visit Mike’s mum at a distance in her garden and it really helped to cheer me up. The weather looks to be improving again soon so hopefully safe ventures out of the house become a bit more frequent now 🙂 I absolutely love a storm too. We’ve just been sitting listing to the rain and thunder like little kids, making big gasping sounds and everything. It’s so refreshing to focus on nothing but a storm! #wotw
We’ve had some great storms here too this week. I love a storm. I like falling asleep to the sound of the rain. My twins always seem to sleep better when it’s raining too. #wotw
No storms around our area, Anne, but plenty of rain. Which is okay for a bit, as the garden needed it. But come back soon, sun! #WotW
I am so glad you got to go out!!
We haven’t had any storms!! It was dry most of the week, chucked it down yesterday and today it can’t make it’s mind up. Rain, sun, rain, sun. I am not a fan of storms so I’m quite glad they’ve missed us. x

I’m glad to hear that you went out and that it went well. I love a good thunderstorm too – as long as I am not cuaght outside in it. Once, in a race, a big thunderstorm came up. I got scared and the man running next to me joked that I should just run with someone taller than me. That way, the taller person would get hit by lightning first. I looked up at him and said “YOU’RE taller than me!” 🙂
The weather has certainly been dramatic lol! You must have been so happy to get out after so long 🙂
