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 ‘broken’ 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 – Broken
I asked my little man what the word of the week this week should be and he said ‘broken.’ It’s no surprise that he would say that while he’s sitting here with a broken arm. He has two transverse fractures in his left arm and is plastered up over his elbow. He’s still getting used to it. He had a fall in the garden on Easter Sunday which resulted in a trip to hospital.
The Little Man has been sleeping in bed with me and each night our sleep has been broken. He wakes up constantly in pain. I know it will get better but it’s been four nights of little sleep so far and it’s making us both moody.
Just to make it worse, Star has been poorly too. I know there is something wrong with her but even though she’s been seen at the hospital it just seems that they won’t take it seriously. I think they are waiting until she is a little older, but we’ve honestly had enough now. She’s broken, her body is not working normally, but no-one seems to want to do anything to help except throw tons of medication at her which are only making her feel worse. I just want help for my girl.
It started off a difficult week and even though things have still not eased off I do think that we are working better as a family. It’s hard sometimes living with six other people, for every one of us, but we do have the ability to get through tough times when we need to. Even broken families can come together sometimes, we are stronger than we think.
