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 ‘lucky’ 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 – LUCKY
This week I’m trying to turn things around a little. It’s been a tough time and although we are still having problems, I know they are never going to be easily solved. So, I go with my instincts and focus on the positive. This week I’m focusing on being lucky.
I feel lucky that today is the last day of my Star’s exams. She will have some more minor assessments next week and then school is over for her. Finally, I feel lucky that I have a child that has finished Secondary school despite all the problems caused by Covid.
Today I am going for my second Covid Vaccination. It’s been thirteen weeks since my first and I was getting worried, but then I got a call and I was lucky to get in today. My eldest son was also asked to go along for his first vaccination. This was worrying me because he really doesn’t deal very well with having to go somewhere new without me and I believed I would have difficulty getting him to go. Then he got an appointment at the same place as me, at the same time. So we can go together this afternoon. Once he has been, he should be okay to attend his second appointment alone. That has made me feel really lucky!
On Tuesday, Star had telephone interview with the college she wants to go to in September. Star is not very good on the telephone and her anxiety was awful. The man who called was really wonderful and had her chatting away to him in no time. She passed the interview and now all she needs is a reference from her teacher and the place is hers. (if she fails her GCSEs she will be given the option to do them again alongside her chosen college course.) I feel really lucky that we have this settled now, it’s such a huge weight that has been lifted. We have had a virtual tour of the college and we will take her along to see where it is before she starts. (It’s really not far away and in a lovely area.)
My eldest daughter was lucky enough to grab a new PS5 console, they are like gold dust at the moment so she had get up early and keep refreshing the website, but she did it in the end.
I also feel lucky that we have a holiday in the UK booked already for this year. We were supposed to have been going last year but they let us keep it until this year. The holiday park we are going to have even reduced the cost of our holiday. We are planning on a quiet holiday and are just looking forward to being somewhere different and near the sea. We can’t wait.
Now it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week this week?
