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 ‘vaccination’ 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
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 – Vaccination
This week both me and Graham have had our Covid Vaccination. It also meant that I left the house for a couple of hours! So it was the highlight of my week.
Of course, we are not fully protected yet, and will never be 100% protected, but at least it’s a start. If I caught Covid I would most likely develop complications because of my poor immune system. This is why we have been so careful since the beginning of the pandemic. But this feels like the beginning of a more safer future.
We have also been taking part in the Office of National Statistics Covid study and get tested regularly. I really don’t get why people object so much to getting tested. My children take it in their stride and we are all happier knowing that we are free from the virus and won’t be passing it on to anyone else.
There was a feature on the local news this week about someone who had attended our local hospital and although put in the non covid infected ward they still ended up with Covid. This is only one case in probably thousands but it was still a relief when my son’s test came back negative a couple of weeks after his visit to the same hospital.
The vaccination is only the beginning though, we don’t know what the future holds. Hopefully we can get on with our lives and put this all behind us. But we can never forget the lives that have been lost. What a dreadful year it has been. But we have been offered a way back to freedom and fingers crossed it all works out. Vaccination and testing has to be the way forward.
Now it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week this week.
